  1. Motion isn't so important. I have seen a bunch of different people achieve the same results using all sorts of different types of knife strokes. What is important is keeping a consistent angle and a consistent amount of work on both sides of the average blade. You should use whatever motion is going to help you stay the most consistent.
  2. LOL
  3. I would be able to finish mine up by the end of August, so an extension would be awesome!
  4. Unfortunately, I will need to drop out for this year's KITH. Too many projects going on...:(
  5. Man, you stole my pun! XD My wife is really tired of me saying "KITHchen knife" at this point. I guess great minds think alike. It's looking good so far!
  6. I've been working on mine a little bit at a time over the past 3 months. I usually wait until I am finished to post anything. I would be done already, but my interests keep getting diverted to a long sword that I am working on.
  7. Is there someplace to watch Arctic Fire 2016? From what I can tell, it was streamed on Facebook, but I can't seem to find those videos on the Arctic fire Facebook page, anymore (Except one wrap up discussion video).

      Thanks, Dave. I have been DYING to see it. Unfortunately, I had to work during the event...:P

      Sorry it's taking so long. This is the consequence of doing this event for free w/ all volunteer work. You've heard the expression "Good, Fast, Cheap . . . choose only two." Well, AF is good and cheap.

      Hey, no worries, brother. I am quite thankful that I will eventually get to see it. Arctic Fire 2012 was what got me into forging in the first place, so I cannot say enough how grateful I am that you guys do these at all, let alone free to the viewer.

  9. Just leave it open ended... Everyone can use whatever materials, scrap or otherwise, that they want.
  10. I voted kitchen knife, but I'm not totally for the "using only scraps" idea. Not everyone has much in the way of scraps laying around. Also, are we going to determine a size minimum or maximum? Or are we going to just do a free for all (I.e. you may get a pairing knife... you may get a butcher's knife).
  11. Cool! I had heard about cold welding before seeing this, but I appreciate getting more information about it (especially since I really didn't know much about it other than it can happen in space).
  12. If everyone is so excited for the next KITH, why don't we just do one for the next six months? set the deadline for New years eve. I know doing one over the second part of the year will be harder, due to the addition of holidays, but no one ever said we could only do one a year... Just a suggestion I also like the Idea of an eating set. that'd be a really fun and challenging project!
  13. Sorry it took me so long to add photos of my finished bowie, here. I had my sister in town a little over a week ago, and I had her take some good photos for me (She is a professional photographer). Let me know what you guys think!
  14. I say extend it, but only for one week.
