I don't think I know an Andy Jones. Whereabouts is he?
Yeah, Prendergasts, for having a relatively uncommon/unusual name, we are around!
I may be confused in thinking that he's close to you or Will; he's based in Essex, I'm not sure how close or far that is.
He mostly makes Japanese style swords, and almost exclusively uses home smelted steel.
I'm really looking forward to seeing more of your work.
How long have you been making knives for?
Essex isn't very near me, no. Actually its pretty much the opposite side of the country.
I've done a bit of "home smelting" myself, hearth steel rather than true bloom, just for fun. Here's a blog entry my buddy Josh made about it a while back;
I've been making kitchen knives for about 5 years?
If there would indeed be a passaround in the future, I would definitely be interested as well:-)!
