  1. Send me an email to bigrockforge(at)gmail.com if you become more serious Brian. As people sign up I can arrange car pooling if it works out. People come up to my place all the time from Indiana and Illinois. Hope you can make it to Shards Collin...
  2. HI folks... This April I will be hosting Jay Haavik for a 5 day course held at my shop in Northern Wisconsin. This is an awesome opportunity because A. Jay's work is phenomenal and B. It is very inexpensive due to it being subsidized by a Scandinavian heritage group. There is an event page on Facebook that you can check out: https://www.facebook.com/events/396198907396835/
  3. Well this past weekend was an astounding success with an incredible gathering of talented folks. It was a pleasure meeting Janel Jacobsen and seeing her work in person.. as well as many other extraordinary people. We successfully smelted copper, made a big steely bloom from ore and pit fired Anglo-Saxon/Viking age pottery. I will try to get more pictures on here soon.. but in the meantime here is this: https://www.facebook.com/ScottRoushBladesmith/posts/10207721374251524 And check out this blog post by one of the participants. This really captures a special element of what I'm trying to accomplish: http://lusaorganics.typepad.com/clean/2016/06/in-the-forge.html
  4. Also.. t-shirts for this year can be ordered here: https://www.customink.com/g/khs0-00aj-uk18
  5. Hey folks.. Shards is getting closer. We've added Anglo-Saxon pottery pit firing to the agenda (Friday morning pot making with pit firing Saturday evening). Janel Jacobsen is still on the roster. We will also have John Overby set up doing wonderful Scandinavian style flat plane carving. A local fellow I've just had the pleasure to meet. Please contact me if you are interested in this event. I'm doing tickets for the event online this year to make it easier. As an encouragement to use this I'm selling 'early bird' tickets at a reduced cost @$30. $50 at the event. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/shards-of-the-north-2016-tickets-25331686757 Again.. contact me via PM here, email or find me on Facebook. We have a pretty lively Facebook page that gives folks a good idea of how things go....
  6. Thanks for the note John... Can't wait. If anybody else on this forum who thinks they might come and doesn't use the Facebook page... please drop a note here. It's time to start getting an estimate of attendance ....
  7. Hi Jim.. Yes.. so excited. I've been irreversibly changed ever since seeing Janel's work.. especially the stuff she does in unstained boxwood. The life she can put into a relatively homogenous material is .. mind blowing. Her and I have been corresponding for a bit and I'm so glad she has agreed to do this...
  8. Well it looks like I'm clear to go... very excited.
  9. Consulting with my 'event planner'... hope, hope, hoping.
  10. Got mine.. haven't had a chance to read in detail... but from the images and the details on the museum swords: What a gift to swordsmiths Peter...
  11. Sure thing.. can't wait to get it. I have some projects coming up that will likely benefit from this knowledge. I wonder if somebody could convince Battle Merchant to acquire more copies???
  12. I guess I got lucky. I wonder if my post lead to the sell out!? I haven't gotten mine yet.. so I shouldn't feel too smug.
  13. Hi folks.. it's been in the works for quite some time but I'm finally getting set up for teaching at my shop in Northern Wisconsin. I just had my first 'pilot' class in basic knife making and there is now an official one on schedule associated with the local folks school Lost Creek Adventures. Here is the information on this class which is scheduled for Apr 9-10 http://www.lostcreekadventures.org/onedge Also.. here are some links with general information (still in the works) for my classes and lessons: http://www.bigrockforge.com/workshops/ http://www.bigrockforge.com/lessons/
  14. Yeah all seems legitimate. I wasn't sure if there was an english version AND a german version and they got right back to me with the answer (didn't see that it was bi-lingual). So.. excited to get this. Interesting that a company like this would have copies.. makes me wonder if the owner attended the event and just decided to pick up a few for sale...
  15. I may make one with lumps at some point. :-)
