  • Howdy all

    I was glad to stumble upon this forum as I started out making my first forge with the intention of becoming a bladesmith. From a very young age I was enthralled with the craftsmanship that went into blade making, the art of making something from nothing. Weapons have been a focal point of most of my life, I've been shooting rifles since I could stand and handguns since I was allowed :P and I've never managed to walk by an outdoors shop without ending up with a lighter wallet and a knife or two.
    I hope that in becoming a member here I'll be able to soak up some of the extensive knowledge I've already witnessed displayed here and perhaps make a blade or two worth putting up here. Whatever the case, glad to be on board and lookign forward to whatever the future may hold.

                Welcome to the forum.
                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.
