    New member, new maker

    Howdy. I'm Mike, newly retired and have been making knives for about 3 months now. I'm having a lot of fun learning about this craft, and look forward to doing it for a long time. I use a Jet 42x2 belt sander right now, will have to save my pennies for a real machine. I also have a small kiln to heat treat with; I've used O1, 1084, 1095 and 52100 steels to make a few skinning/camp/hunting knives, and have made 2 chef's knives and two paring knives now; will post pics soon. I've been a woodworker for 13 years or so, and have quite a lot of equipment for that hobby. York county VA. Nice to meet you.

    I haven't lived the life I wanted, just the lives I needed too at the time.
