    Yeah you make one and I'll find a buyer for my kidney. That cleaver you're working on sounds like it's just my taste!

    I have seen Caig sell a pair of scales for $248(!), it's just crazy. I am holding back this time because I have tons of great stuff that I had stabilized myself, but I am still using some wood from Craig which I had picked up 2 years ago.

    I created a thread where we can continue the wood talk without swamping Pierre's thread...

    I just love these WIP posts. It is so cool to get a glimpse into the process. So much heat, so many wonderfully large and mean looking tools. Exciting to know that so much heat and force and brutality makes such beautiful and delicate blades. Love it!

    Last picture is vermeculite. Once done forging and normalizing, it allows the billet to cool slowly, keeping it in an annealed state.
