KITH is about community and connection.  We are too far flung to be able to get together in person, but we can send a bit of ourselves out and get a bit of someone else in return.  Don't worry about y

One thing I love about the KITH on this forum is that you can drop out without any hard feelings. I suggest you just start, and if you really think your blade isn't good enough you can choose to drop

So how does KITH work, Knife in the hat right? So kinda like everyone makes a knife under a certain topic, and you draw names to see who gets who's knife?

I like the folder idea. It's something small and easy to commit to, but complex enough to keep the gears turning.... But on the other hand the dagger sounds cool! 

What about a blade of the maker's choosing within a loose set of parameters?  Like a 5" bladed knife. Or a "carry knife"? Something you could run wild with. Just a thought.

I would like In for next year.  Have you guys done spears before?  Or maybe something more practical, like a kitchen knife in pattern weld?   I like the idea of loose set of parameters to keep the creativity flowing...

Maybe do a set of two or three smalls?

That would be fine with me. I'm going to participate no matter what the theme is. It gives me the extra kick in the butt to make something outside my comfort zone.B)

I would participate if If I had A working forge at the beginning of this year, then I would have more than a month of experience. But sadly that is not the case...

So how does this work? Do we end up taking a Vote on what to make or does somebody just pick?

At some point, someone must open a poll. I'm not sure if anyone can do it or not. @Wesley Alberson started it last year I believe. I dont know if its appropriate for me to do it since I've only participated once before and don't know exactly how this stuff works.

Anybody that knows what they're doing out there lol?

Everyone throws out ideas and it ends up coming down to a vote on what to make. I'm not sure how to make the poll but @Wesley Alberson does. After the poll is made everyone votes on the theme. Last year was a magical themed blade. Once the theme is set everyone who wants to participate makes a blade based on the theme while doing a WIP post of your progress. When everyone is finished someone puts all the names in a hat and the blades get exchanged based on the results of the names drawn.

I'm in whatever the theme turns out to be, I always have a lot of fun participating.

I rather like the idea of doing a fancy arrowhead myself, it would be way out of my comfort zone and probably a lot of fun
