Sorry it took me so long to get these up... most of these were taken by Sara (though i took a few). I also have some videos that i will be uploading when i have time. The album is located on facebook, but if any of you have trouble viewing them, let me know and i'll see if i can upload them somewhere else.

Thanks for the pictures Jon! Looks like a lot of exciting stuff was going on. Man it's amazing how much things have evolved in a few years.

it's a set up my Dad used. He was a chip carver, it has 4- 8 inch wheels 2 with abrasive belts and 2 with leather strops, some paper and fabric strops.
He made many tools out of old straight razor blades. Del looked at it and calculated on the fly the final output at 220 RPM.

I dont use it, I dragged it along to see if someone could.

WOW ! thank you Jon and Sara for the photos .

I think its really cool. At that speed, you could use it to slowly flatten blade roads without worrying too much.

It's such a wierd feeling to actually know the knives, even individual knives and stones (as opposed to a particular model) but not recognize hardly any of the people... I think I have a problem.

The Zapruder film came out clearer than that! :razz:

dont judge... its a SLR, not a video camera... plus my 60mm lens has no image stabilization

Heres another video... this one is a short clip of Del's (Delbert Ealy for those of you who dont know) forging demo:

Thanks for the excellent pictures, clearly you know what you are doing behind the lens of a camera. This year's ECG looked like it was a great time but I have to admit I am glad I did not go because I'm not sure I'd be able to pay the mortgage with all those awesome knives laying about. I still cannot believe how legendary Butch's tuna sword is, that right there is the ultimate!

Who had the spoon?That was me -- I could not pass up a chance to show it off :cool2:

Really got me wishing I could have been there!Even though you could not be there you were well-represented :thumbsup2: Your suji had the honor of slicing up the briskets, and the petty and paring were on display.

Sounds like you guys had a great time. I liked the pics of all the great food. Don't suppose you have any leftovers...

I like your Shempp hat, Butch, Ed is one of my friends and mentors.

Very cool, wish I coulda made it. My fave pic is a tie between Del's table and Sara fittin to go all ninja with the Butchasword.

Finally took the time to look through the pics, very nice! I'm sure you had a great time out there. I recognize some faces but there are a bunch of new ones also. And, if I may say so, Sara does equally well before and behind the camera.
