    Pacific Northwest Gathering

    Where? Mareko Maumasi's shop in Tumwater, Washington.

    When? Early October 2016

    What?

    Food, BBQ, Drinks

    Forging Demo from Mareko

    Lots of table space for displaying your collections and using them. All the cut up veggies will be used for a seafood boil.

    Friendly Cutting Competition

    The guidelines for the competition are as follows:
    -Each competitor submits a blade from the provided profile, made from monosteel with no defining marks and with the provided handle.
    -Standard Japanese handles will be provided for each competing knife so that these blades will be judged solely on their performance.
    -Heat treatment and finish grinding is to be done by each maker.
    -Each knife will be put through a series of standard cutting operations. We'll have score cards and everyone can vote on their favorite knife.
    -Once competition is complete the knives will be put up for sale, with all proceeds going to charity. (input appreciated here as well, Northwest harvest? Another that has a broader reach?)​

    Weekend of 10/8 would be perfect for me (right after I finish the sword making class with Michael Bell) - though I could maybe swing 10/2 as well.

    If anyone is coming up or just wants to stop in at Taro's place in Eugene, let me know I will definitely be stopping at Mame in Eugene =)

    This could be a great vacation, I have been wanting to visit seattle anyway. I wonder how good the fairmont olympia is? As for who's winning I'm guessing of those 4 Haburn is taking it. Saying that one of the true masters of metal could join the fray like Bill Burke, Ed Fowler or David Lisch and remind these youngins how far they have to go. Super excited, won't know if I can come till end of august though.
