Rick Barrett Seminar


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, this is my first post here and I thought I would put in a plug for Rick's Seminar this coming October, there's still three spots left, info is below and can also be found on Rick's site.

 

2007 Barrett Custom Sword Seminar

 

October 19-21, 2007

Price $700.00

We will be covering several aspects of sword and fittings making as well as quite a bit of history behind the Japanese sword. Everyone attending will clay and heat treat their own tanto forged out by me to take home with them. (Yes, the course includes a free tanto!!!) There will be a one hour lapse between most demonstrations to allot for run over time or possibly starting the next demo early. I will amend the schedule further as more details are nailed down.

Man, wish I could make it... Rick's a great demonstrator, and incredibly talented... I've caught a number of his demos at a few of the shows I've attended during the last year, and my only regret is not managing to absorb everything he does and says during his 'seminar'-- there's just too much!

 

Of course, Kevin Cashen's intensity and passion for the science of steel is contagious. I've never recuperated from the first time I watched him teach, and I likely never will! Who would have thought that I'd be reading metallurgical papers, ravenously groping for understanding, and loving it - Kevin is single-handledy to blame for that, and I can't wait to see him demonstrate again.

 

Oh, well... maybe next year...
