    Knives, swords, axes, spears, and how they are made. Food! So much so that I have a Culinary arts degree. Also just a general intrest in the old ways of doing things.

    New work from Fuad Accawi

    Looking good. The first one is indeed my favorite. Im itching to start doing some low layer stuff as soon as I get my new forge built in a week or two. Great stuff! Larry Sharp

    Introducing F.L.O.

    Stunning. I agree there certainly appears to be a major time investment. It was well worth the effort. Im having trouble find the right adjectives to describe it. Beautiful work Jesus. Larry Sharp

    New work from Fuad Accawi

    When I handled some similar knives that Fuad made, I at first thought they were too heavy. The more I held it and the more I moved it around in my hand, the better it felt. Once you get over the shock so to speak of the heft, you realize that its actually very comfortable. Its rare to see a knife that has this kind of thickness and heft that cuts as good as Fuads do. They look great to boot. You wont be dissapointed if you were to buy one!

    Cutting competition knife

    Looks great Alan. Cant wait to see it in action. Ive started a competition knife but Im not sure Ill finish it in time. If not Ill bring it and maybe finish it at Bowies. I think yours should do well. Larry Sharp

    Dwarven Axe for Stephen Renico

    Sweet! I have plans to try something similar towards the end of the summer. I hope it turns out half as good as yours.

    Flea market find.

    I was strolling around the flea market Sunday and found this. It is a portable forge. Everything comes apart and can be stored in the body of the forge for transporting. Ive never seen one like this before. Its made by champion and it cost me 100$. The blower works perfectly and it blows a good amount of air. Does anybody know how old it might be and who it might have been marketed for? Larry Sharp

    Tulip Santoku

    The nori (seaweed) is what makes sushi taste fishy. If you like that flavor youll like sushi, otherwise look for types of sushi that arent made with it. Kinda wierd to me that raw fish tastes less fishy than the seaweed. I guess it soaks up all that salt and stuff from the ocean.

    Wanting some design critique

    I think what the guys are trying to say is, what was described in the book would not make an effective weapon. You can go two ways with this. Make it just like the book describes and hang it on a wall, or make something similar but with modifications to produce something effective in real world situations. The handle should be wood. The Cold Steel shovel/bad axe is the perfect base to build this thing on. It was designed to do everything your wanting. The weight should be in the head, not the handle. Hope that helps. Larry Sharp P.S. Im a huge zombie fan. Keep me posted.
