I've been intrigued with medieval history for as long as I can remember, and in the more recent years, Norse mythology. There's something fascinating about the world when we did not have all this technology to complicate things.. Although I have a deep appreciation for modern equipment, I find myself drifting farther and farther into the realm of hand tools and developing a set of universal skills that can translate between any aspect of this wonderfully diverse trade. Educated as an engineer, I also find myself drawn to the metallurgical science that lies hidden beneath the surface, and by extension, to learning as much about the craft as I possibly can.
Thank you all, this is a great community and I would not be anywhere close to where I am now without it, and through what I have learned in this journey I sincerely hope that I am able to help others as I have been so generously taught.
As a wise man once said,
It's a dangerous business, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there's no telling where you might be swept off to.
