Even more knives..I need more epoxy to keep going

I'm trying to  get my knife stock bumped up to a nice level for the start of hunting season.   It's time to grind out another couple of dozen.

More Damascus Blades

 Fun with etchant and the polishing wheel.  I think the patterns turned out very nice.  Now for the handles....

Working on a BIG anvil was a joy!

At the steam show in Esko,MN we had a blast working and demonstrating our craft.  The crowd enjoyed our work and we had a lot of people stop by.  There were awnings over our "porch" so we had a place for the fair goers to watch while escaping the rain.  There was a lot of rain. 
It was a joy to work on the huge anvil in their shop.  It weighs 400-500 pounds and had enough room for two of to hammer at the same time.
