  • hello from the states

    some of you already know me from bladeforums. bernoulli and i were talking a few days ago about the paper wheels and i decided to join the australian bladeforums (as if i'm not busy enough already )

    i'll be glad to answer any questions members might have about using the paper wheels and offer any help. i'm also a knifemaker and i'll be glad to share what i have learned in the 20+ years i have been making knives.

    Nice to see you here Richard. Hope you enjoy your stay.
    Quantum physics is a bit of a passion of mine. It's extraordinary. There's a branch of mathematics that is based on lunacy, and that's wonderful.

        Oh good!! So happy to have you here. It should make life a bit easier for me.

        For those of you who don't know, Richard has been sharpening for about 40 years, the last twenty with paper wheels. I've only been using the wheels for three years or so, so I don't have the experience that Richard does. Beyond that, sharpening his his profession and it's my avocation. I call Richard when it gets over my head.

        You should also know that Richard sharpens knives free for first responders and military personnel - in the U.S. that is.

                    The plural of knife is knives.
                    One knife.
                    Two knives.
                    The plural possessive is knives'.

                        Hi richard, welcome along,
                        i believe i have read a thread you started on paper wheels and am glad to call myself a born-again paper wheel user.
                        I look forward to seeing some of your work.

                          craig, i have 2 websites that i posted pictures on but my google website is my newest one. i need to upload some pictures of the knives i made in the past few years. i put 3 links to my google drive where i posted high def pictures of 2 knives i made this past year plus a vid of how i do my pinless tangs which i hope to have on a tv show i was asked to be on. the host seen a knife i made for a friend and he asked if i would make a vid to show his viewers how i do my pinless tang knives. here is a link to a thread i started on the knife. http://www.bladeforums.com/forums/sh...76#post9965276

                          i'm not sure these links will work for everybody. if not i'll have to post them on my website.
