I would like to invite my friends and fellow knife makers from Michigan and surrounding areas to our HHH Hammer in.
DATES: October 5th and 6th
LOCATION: Marlette Michigan
We will be starting Saturday October 5th at about 9:30 AM and we will run late into the night Saturday. Then start again Sunday morning around 10:00 am. Working until approx 6:30 pm Sunday, or until we are all good and dirty and ready to call it a day! Whichever comes first.
This is our 3rd year doing the Hammer In. Its always BIG fun and we get to meet new friends. and share in the passion of this crazy thing we call knife making!! As well as eat way to much good food. This year Im thinking PIG ROAST!!!! As long as I know we will have enough people attending to help eat that delectable little pork chop!!
Last year we had a great time and forged feather damascus billets, a few integral blades were hammered out. As well as a bunch of other cool stuff! From blade grinding demo's to heat treating and handle making. Its was alot of fun.. For me the highlight of the weekend was the making of a LARGE and awesome Chopper. Starting from raw materials to finish knife. Then we tested it thoroughly. Chopping down small trees. and cutting 2X4's etc.
This year is sure to be a BLAST! Not having a "plan" is always half the fun.
Anyone interested in joining us this year. Message me for more info. and details. Post on this thread to help keep it visible to all KKF members. Your welcome to set up camp at my place or there is a hotel approx 30 miles down the road if you prefer.. Between Randy Jr's and myself we also can give some of ya a place to rest your head. (our homes are side by side) and I think between us we can comfortably accommodate 8 friends..
I look forward to meeting some new friends and connecting again with some old friends.
God Bless YA!
