  7. My friend the Belgian knifemaker Samuel Lurquin is coming in Atlanta for the Blade Show and would obtain his MS mark with the ABS where he yet is Journeyman Smith. He has send a dagger to the US, coming from Belgium. The dagger is lost/stolen...!? Who knows.? He wrote : "ok, everyone I need you this dagger disappeared, stolen it was the dagger that was to be used for the examination of Master Smith at the Blade Show in a few weeks she never arrive in USA! I have to scream, growl, insult, threaten !!! but no dagger if you track this dagger on a forum, sale website I do not know, maybe this guy is stupid enough to sell it on the internet tell me thank you all" If you should see the dagger on a site to sale, please, write here or send me an PM ! Thanks.
  8. Thanks, Sir ! It was very nice to have you and your wife in our show !
  9. :D I'm happy that you understand so good our "pun-play" in French. We ware not hoping that our poster was so good understood in the US English speaking peoples ! Proud and Happy "fourth of July" for all our American friends !
  10. Yes, of course, US are a strange country for us. And, indeed, let's talk about knives...
  11. I will be seventy end of March 2014 and have seen a lot in my life... Blood, fears, happyness, or not! Also Knives and Art... You can find both in Museums all the Earth around. Europe and Asia have older cultures and can / may assimilate these two "sides" without any problems. Apparently, USA not !? As it was said before, the nudity as shown by Tomas and other artists since centuries is Art. Knives, not so often... And when I see the knife and the picture from Tomas, I say : " Wow, Knife Art "... I can't understand the "prudity" as shown here. The Bladesmith's Forum is for me, more and more a forum for American knifemakers, amateurs and hobbyists with more "criticism" for the expressions of art than the quality of knives... I repeat : " I can't understand you anymore " ! Much noise for nothing... Sorry for my poor English... I'm just an old European

Thanks for him. If it is not the right place, feel free to displace it !
  16. Hello Mr. Finnigan, In another life, I was a specialist in the development of "vacuum cooking"... I think you will have problems if you want to keep your hop fresh into vacuum without treating it first in boiling water during 2 minutes (it must come first back at the boiling t° ) and refresh it suddently into very cold water (eventually with ice cubes). After that, you'll dry it very good and do it into the vacuum packer. Otherwise, your hop will continue to ferment in the bags, same with the best vacuum. Another method should be to put it very fresh into the vacuum bags and freeze it very fast.( - 18°C in the middle of the bag, after 20 minutes!) N.B. : I don't know what is the influence on the taste of your hop!? My 2 €cents.
  17. Use of stone anvil : Picture coming from a vulgarization album about the Gallic Life I used when I received children during the pasts "Week of the Amateur Artists in Flanders" It shows and explains (Dutch language) the Gallic smith at work on a stone anvil:
  18. Nice pic for an interesting knife that I like! Which kind of artefact did you use for the handle ? Thanks for your answer.
  19. Hello Marcin, Nice to welcome you here!
  20. Thanks, Hannes! I will try soon by a friend that always have a workshop!
  21. My very modest contribution to this thread : 3 years ago, we ware trying to build an oven and smelt some iron ore and very little pieces of old irons and wastes of my knifemaking activity. The results ware very poor! 3 weeks ago, I must have to leave definitly my workshop (they will break the building soon) and stop with my hobby. I must to give back all the area clean and remove the wastes of the oven... And that's what I found in the ashes : I do not have anymore the possibility to cut it, but they are +- holding to a mighty magnet (the red ones, better!) What do you think about that ? I will try to take this pieces by a friend of mine and go to heat them and see...
