    My family, bladesmithy, blacksmithy, smelting, chemistry, metallurgy, and of course counter-strike for the past 11 years.
  1. Amazon has been cracking down on counterfeit lately. Report it.
  2. How much per 3 then? What was shipping like?
  3. I can load it up today if you want it for shear novelty Message me if you change your mind. I'm right down the road.
  4. Right down the road from me. Wanna trade it for a 200# Bradley Power Hammer? Its in Rockwell
  5. Simply because everything I make is kitchen related this is what I do. Stabilize the wood, then cast it clear to fill any voids. Sometimes stabilizing resin will fill some hairline cracks, but don't count on it. From there it is casted in a mold as close to the dimension of the wood possible to save on alumilite, and sand back down.
  6. Oh what a weekend. I miss everyone already. Lots of changes going on among so many smiths that it is daunting to keep up with it all, and not lose touch. Incredible time.
  7. Never a dull moment!!
  8. Cant believe the new studio wouldnt push filming to a different week. Ah well. First and hopefully only blunder of the trip - I showed up To Marks' house at 3:30am, instead of 3:30pm to leave. Ahem.
  9. Np. The stones are incredibly addictive to use. After using them so much and getting finer and finer edges I have started to hit that point where you realize your current limitation is the heat treatment and steel selection.
  10. Last year you could almost sun bathe.
  11. Beautiful steel JJ!!
  12. Jan, typically rice straw ash is used. It is suspected it is used because of its high silica content, up near 90% silica after it becomes ash. This silica is not present in other straws, as I suspect the minerals are absorbed into the straw due to it growing in partial flooded water.
  13. Never fail to impress. Cant wait!!!
  14. Thanks JJ!
  15. This is now sold. Thanks!
