There's a creek that runs through our property that I fish in(I catch trout in there) and I took the camera and just shot a few pictures while I was at it

Nothing much,


Waiting for spring!


the endless road....reminds me of my knife making path  Wink


I just had to share this picture of our cat! she sleeps for like 18 hours a day and still seems to be tired!



Like I said nothing much, just a nice day and a few pictures!

Have a great week all!

As a side note: I was up against my deadline for an article for Blade Show. I was about finished reading John Toland's book on Hitler, 1,000 pages about one of the most evil men of  all time. I found I could not even start my article, I could not put 10 words together!

I finally decided I had to get some good thoughts running through my head and picked up one of my more enthusiastic books, read highlighted parts and finally was able to write my article in 20 hours.

It never ceases to amaze me exactly how great an influence our reading material can have on our minds.

Got my field of inquiry narrowed.  I'm ready on that end.    Last year I was just lucky I struck up conversation with Butch and that lead to Ed.   This time I won't be torturing my poor sore feet wandering aimlessly around.   MUCH MUCH more prepared this year.

Wonderful collaboration!   The real breakthroughs come from individual effort.  You know the committee gets the credit but the actual idea came from an individual on the committee.  The refining of the idea can come by working with others.

I've done enough narrowing for the moment.   I have compiled a list of about a dozen makers I want to visit at the Blade show.

I realize that you wanted a photo of the handles being glued up to also show the blades and they are beautiful.

Still seeing the naked blades sticking up in the air is one of the most dangerous events of knife making, puts chills down my back. Jerry Fisk was teaching a new maker and cautioned him about a naked blade in a vice. The new maker either forgot or ignored his advice. He was working in Jerry's shop and left a naked blade sticking out of a vice, Jerry walked by and reached for something on the bench and stuck his forearm into the blade. The blade went all the way through and Jerry had to go to the Doctor. He was very lucky, no tendons were cut and although probably still a little painful he healed up and still has 100% use of his arm. The accident could have ended his knife making time.
That's a good observation! thank you Ed, I'll remember to not do that again.

Thanks guys, I appreciate the feedback.

She's a beauty, looks very comfortable to use and I love the the Loveless bolts as well.
