  1. Kiah, working together is the best adventure imaginable. The payoff may be low at first, but no amount of money will be able to buy back these precious days after spending them apart. Your bladesmith is a lucky man to have you by his side- knowing you love him and will stand by him will help him keep going through the difficult seasons. When you bring him cold water while he's forging on a hot day, or join him in the shop for hot tea on a cold night, he will know how much you love him and he will treasure you. I wish you and your love all the best as you begin this journey.

And what do you say when a commissioned piece cracks during heat-treat for the third time, or when blades just aren't selling? Ladies, please share your
