Yep, same facility!  My family only stayed in the area for three years, though - Dad got a job at Johnson Wax in Racine so we moved - that's a bit long of a commute.

I was born in Racine and my folks farmed in Franksville.  Moved up north in 73 when the ole man bought a farm in Thorp.

I have loved knives and all kinds of weaponry since I was a kid and always wanted to try knife making. I finally got around to it 2 or 3 years ago. I still have a lot to learn, but for now, I don't plan to try forging. I am mostly interested in making fixed blade knives and machetes.
