Hey everyone! I know it's been a while since is posted last, so here's an update from my recent shenanigans. I just got back from BLADE Show as well as spending some quality time with fellow makers and friends up in Connecticut.
Firstly, BLADE was awesome, as was expected. I love going to shows because it gives me the opportunity to put my mug in front of my work, as well as the opportunity to talk to folks face to face and share my love and enthusiasm for the bladesmithing trade. BLADE doubly is an awesome opportunity to catch up with fellow makers and friends that I really only get to see once or twice a year. It's also a great chance meet and make new friends, and to get all fan-boy over the many makers who's work I admire.
The boys of Forged In Fire, and yes, Jason Redick really is that much taller than all of us.
