I'm Rudy Joly from Plainville, Massachusetts. Save the snickering on the name, I've heard them all. After a long conversation with my freind BillT, I was pointed in this direction which I wasn't aware even existed. After noticing some of the familiar names on this site, I know there won't be a shortage of useful information and instruction. I got involved in knifemaking (seriously) around 1986 but have always had an interest since birth I think. Dad worked in a steel mill when I was an embyo. I forge and do stock removal but kitchen cutlery wasn't a serious consideration untill recently. I'm looking forward to learning something new and expanding my knifemaking skills with your help. Some of you may recognize my participation in other forums.

I'm a MA kid myself, grew up on the South Shore (Abington) but I've mostly been gone since the mid-80's.

Welcome to KKF! :)

Thanks for the welcome.
Dave, I'm a 25 minute ride west from there...right at the end of rte 106. There's a lot to catch up on in all these threads, I'll be digging around for the next few days.
