Hey guys, I'm new to the craft. Starting to slowly buy tools and ruin everything I touch, but it's been a great way to spend the weekends. Really enjoy the craft and community, especially given the wealth of knowledge at my finger tips with the internet. I started as a collector - with almost no interest in fix blade knives - but after a couple years it's almost all I'm interested in. My passion lies in hopefully being able to produce chef's knives - eventually forge them out - but I truly enjoy stock removal. I'm going to attend Travis's hammer in - but if you know of anything else going on around here or anyone here wanting to take on a student - let me know! Excited to be apart of this community here - as I was unaware of this forum until a member mentioned I come join!

Any chance you can pass his information my way? Looking at to get some chef's rolls made to send my stuff out in ;)

Welcome from Rhode Island. Two years in and I only ruin 1/2 the knives I build. I’m getting better. Ask many questions. These guys are really helpful!!
