"The Art of the Cutler" by JJ Perret


Recommended Posts

Hello!!

Just a heads up that the monumental work "The Art of the Cutler" by JJ Perret is  being translated and I have been signed on as the technical editor. This is a real TREAT for me as I based a lot of my research on his work and to get the entire book in my hands..well...that is a dream come true.

More as things transpire..

If you wish to know the price of freedom..Visit a Veteran's Hospital...I am humbled by their sacrifice... 

Why is it when the Mighty Thor throws his hammer he is dispensing Justice and fighting Evil..BUT..when I throw my hammer I wind up in a mandatory 16 week anger management course??</p>

I came into this world naked, screaming and covered in someone else's blood...I have no problem going out the same way...

Hello JPH

Congrats. You must be chuffed to bits. Don’t forget your own next book though. There’s a space on my shelf waiting for it... and now this one too apparently.

 I was thinking the same thing. Excited for his opportunity, but impatient about his book!

I have given it all a quick once over..the verbatim translation from 16th Cent French is interesting to read..I will be doing a  lot of notations as far as what certain materials that are mentioned with their equivalent names that they are now known by... This is a very interesting read so far..I can't wait to really dig into this.... This gives me something constructive to do while  I wait for inspections and all the other fun stuff that building a new studio entails.

Mons. Perret was an amazing craftsman..simply amazingJPH

I'm not sure why this is in the Fiery Beards thread......it isn't a joke is it? I hope not. Congrats Jim. Good news.

Looking forward to it. Perret was one of those fellows who stood head and shoulders above most, who wasn't afraid to reveal "trade secrets", as without experience and hard work they meant nothing, and who both talked the talk and walked the walk. Reminds me of a retired serviceman and full-time bladesmith of my acquaintance.
