    Brut de forge on kitchen knives

    Thanks Jerrod, I was hoping to see the knife in question. I think those guys are high, Joel. No reason why it couldn't be a fine tool in the kitchen. Just, umm, keep it clean? Common sense is becoming less common these days... Zeb and Will, absolutely!

    Any jerky lovers out there?

    It's a good size water pan Alex, so the whiskey is diluted enough with all the water. 20 years ago, I'm not sure if any of it would've made it into the pan, lol. Can't stomach that stuff anymore; just the occasional porter or blonde ale now.

    Hmmm, not sure if I've had it with alder. I smoke my trout & salmon with Applewood chips. I also pour a 1/2 pint of whiskey in the water pan, along with a good amount of lemon juice.

    Let's be careful out there

    Glad to hear the fire won't get to you Vern. I'm in NorCal, and for us, the fun is just beginning. Every summer half of our state burns up. Makes me paranoid all summer, as my neighborhood was razed to the ground by a wildfire back in 2009. We bought a lot from some folks who chose not to rebuild, and built our house there. A large wooded area sits just 300 yards south of my house, so I am on edge throughout our fire season---which is flirting with becoming year-round.

    My god man, glad I don't live anywhere near that place...I'd be so broke.

    Bangin' & Jammin'

    I love Amon Amarth. "Twilight of the Thunder God" is one of my favorite metal albums for certain.

    Bangin' & Jammin'

    I'm an old-school metal-head myself. I'm 44, so I've been exposed to many different genres of metal. My favorites are Norwegian black metal, "viking metal", and Swedish death metal. But, more often than not, when I'm in my shop, I usually find myself listening to none other than Ronnie James Dio.

    Drill bits

    I've been very happy with them. I'm not cranking out a ton of blades, but that said, I typically place only one order a year; two each in 1/8" and 3/16". Oh, and I keep my press set at the lowest speed; 760 RPM.

    Drill bits

    I use carbide tipped bits, with 3 in 1 oil as a cutting fluid. They last quite a while, and work wonderfully. I get them from Bisco Tool Supply... http://www.biscotoolsupply.com/carbide-tipped-drill-bit-drill-bit-hardened-metal

    Veðrfölnir, the "Storm Pale"

    Holy crap, that almost doesn't look real; it's too perfect! Very nice work. I hope to reach that level some day...

    Four early medieval axes.

    Very cool!

    Perhaps the busiest knife I have ever made...

    Wow, that is cool! I love the patterns; both in the blade AND the handle. Great lines too.

    Makers marks

    By "little masks", do you mean stencils? If so, sign shops can make them.
