I know I'm late for Thanksgiving but glad to see you are continuing to feel better Ed.
It's hard to believe December is here already.  We have been enjoying beautiful weather
and are getting wood in for winter here.

Congratulations on another one.  Thanks to Dan for remembering.
Chris is due, I think?
I bought a Council axe for wood service this year.
Not a knife, but a good tool.

Dan, I got your photos. I don't know why Ed didn't. 
It is good to see you are learning some good stuff.
Sometimes I think the skills you are studying are
disappearing.  I am glad you are following this study.

I love the SD area.  The only area that compares to it,
in my opinion, geologically wise, is Wyoming.  They
are close together though. 

Good luck in your studies.  And get back to making
knives when you have time.  I know you will be busy.

Get down to the Bad Lands!

It's good to hear you are out enjoying the weather Ed!
Take care.  We missed seeing you but it is great to hear
you got good news.

Thanks for posting. 
The weapon you made was an amazing creation.  I hope you bring it to the Blade Show this year.   I think the winning blades from ďForged in FireĒ would make the Blade Show more interesting and promote forging and knife making.
What an accomplishment. The wife and I congratulate you and we enjoyed the show.  Thanks for the opportunity to see it.
Go for it man! (And obviously you did).  I admire your fortitude to display your talents in a national venue and you persevered.  Congratulations!

I hope everyone of you have a great Christmas and enjoy your time and company wherever you are.
Ed, thanks for the wish and thanks for the forum. No knives this year for Christmas, just thoughts
of the ones coming on.

If a link was posted earlier, I missed it.  I would like to watch also.  I already have a lot of respect for Jarred's forgeing skill and would like to see him in action.

I am looking on e-bay right now, thanks Mark.
Integrity is a good subject and I am enjoying the posts.

Thanks for the feedback Mark.   I noticed you mentioned HEPK and that in itself is a perspective.   Thanks for bringing it up.  Someone certainly needed to mention it.  For a few years, the Rules of Membership, (charter), stayed on my wall, I cannot find it somehow.  I will keep looking. 
 Ed did say: ďlets have some fun with itĒ.
Just saw a travel show that toured the SAK factory.  If I am not mistaken, they offer over 400 different models.
Oops, my wife just reminded me.  It is behind the South Dakota map.  As usual, she was right. Good stuff.

John,
This is exactly what I referred to in my post in Integrity referring to finding the real cutters.
Knives, I think, have spirits just like everything else that exists.  I use the word very loosely.
They all have different capabilities, some more intense than others.  If you can feel such in
the ones you make, you must be very sensitive, or know exactly what you are trying to make. 
I have enjoyed your sharing of thoughts and experience.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
Enjoy our blessings and our people.

Integrity,
Joe has given a huge measure of information on it.
I agree with him totally, and his experience with those Swiss Army Knives is somewhat similar to mine.  I havenít owned as many as him, but have used several.  My favorite went over the side of my canoe while fishing.  It was a rough loss and it was not replaceable, I donít think they make the model anymore.  They may make it; I think it was a mechanic.  I would own one again if I could find one.

Integrity to me in a knife is one that is never lost, easy to sharpen, and doesnít break when needed. Utility of course is at the top of the list.  Can it skin a deer and clean fingernails at the same time?  Is it possible to bring it to a razor edge with your sharpening skills? If so it can cut.  Does it feel comfortable to be at hand continuously?  Will it come to hand quickly?   Will you let someone else hold it?   Knives are special tools and are like a third hand, they do things the other two hands canít. Can it help you make a meal when you are hungry?  Would it be the first thing or the only thing you would choose if left with that choice?    Did it cut your finger, of course it did, it is teaching you to respect. Knives are not really safe tools, they are made to cut.  I havenít owned a knife that I have used that hasnít bloodied me, some worse than others.  Here is a point; you can find the really aggressive ones.  It may be a hard lesson.  If you have a knife like some of this, perhaps you have one with integrity.
There are several knives I might say have integrity.   I have a few, and will carry as I perceive a need.  I choose my best to be by my side and I know they will cut and provide exactly what I expect them to do if needed.  Thereís no doubt a knife with integrity can make our lives much better.

Enjoyed the pictures!  They are good looking knives.
I really like your etching.
The stag is a good backdrop and not bad either.

Congratulations on being a published author Joe!
I really enjoyed reading your thoughts.
I hope this article is the first of many yet to come. Smiley

Fortitude! And the will to survive. He lived because he kept his nerve. Wow!
Most people would have gone into serious shock from the looks of those wounds.
That guy must be tough!  Mom's said leave us alone. 
I hope he heals quickly.  There are still wild places I guess.
