    A couple weeks back, Jacob Beach from prepers bunker outdoors came over to my shop to shoot a video. He just finished up the editing and it turned out very cool! Just thought you guys might like to see it. Thanks for looking!

    Cool video. This may sound silly, when grinding on the belt sander, do you have something fire resistant on that back wall where the sparks fly? I thought, man, what if his shop catches fire? Great knives. :dblthumb:

    That's awesome! I didn't know you hand hammered the blades out!

    That makes me like my Wilder Forge knife even more now!

    I don't, but I probably should..... I normally just clean out the sawdust once in a while.

    But it would be cool to send a shower into a tinder bundle and use it to light the forge. :)

    I am totally loving the one you made for me Chase :dblthumb:

    You hammered the resulting cross-section practically all the way down to the edge and I appreciate the time and patience it mandated to do so. It's a lotta blade!

    I made a fold-over kydex sheath for it and have been using it a lot for the past couple of weeks. It is performing as designed - just WOW! :4:

    I promise to do a write-up at some point so I can share your really excellent work.
