Re: Hunting knife needed

I do have a whole bunch of stuff partially finished in aebl/nitrov/1084 let me know if interested. There is also a bunch of nice stuff in the knifemaker for sale section at blade forums . Bark rivers are excellent, I also love the stuff at fiddleback forge. Big Chris makes some awesome stuff too.

Re: What was your first job?

got a job as soon as i was old enough, grocery bagger making 5.15 an hour. the pay was almost good enough to cover the cost of the car/gas i needed to get to and from. It wasnt long before I would only work sundays at 1.5x pay and worked a few hours a week in a machine shop for about 8/hr i think.

go to recipes for the whole fam (young children)

What are everyone's favorite go to recipes when you need to accommodate young kids as well as the adults?

Re: How do you decide between 210 and 240mm gyutos?
