    Hello everyone.

    I apologize for being absent here on the forum. Im working with another knife making, creating kitchen knives for and with him, in addition to trying to run my own business, and take care of home life. It does not leave much time for sitting on a computer or even getting outside much. I'm working on changing that and just got a new to me camera to do some videos of camping hunting hiking fishing and general farm and forge life again. So, hopefully I can budget my time a little better in the coming year. The plan is to acquire some land and build a small cabin. We'll see what happens.

    -Matt

    I hope our conversation didn't inspire that post. Everybody needs some time here and there. I think you've been more than accommodating, especially with the holiday season. Best of luck with the cabin. I'll be watching for pics.

    Life’s sometimes better unplugged. Even though I love seeing your work do what’s best for you bud. Hopefully in the coming months I can help pay for part of that cabin... haha

    Hey @556mp , two quick questions. Do you have a set list of steels you work with if I wanted a custom? Also, do you have any plans to do more hunter gatherers in the near future? I hate I missed that last one.

    It just made me realize that Ive been absent.

    I have some more in the works, should be able to heat treat today I hope.

    I use:
    80crv2
    1095
    52100
    w2
    15n20

    Thickness depends on the type of steel, for example I only have W2 in 1/4in at the moment, 1095 in anything from 1/16 to 3/16, etc etc....
