    OUT OF THIS WORLD!!!

    Hey all you knife knuts!!! Were about to embark on a great adventure here at HHH Knives. And I want to bring you guys along with us..
    OK so heres what Im thinking!
    Soon, I will start a new WIP of a awesome new project. Were going to be forging some Meteorite damascus! Yep that is the "out of this world" reference. I just received a 4 lb. piece of Meteorite and with a little luck at the end of the process we will have a couple of extra amazing and beautiful billets of SPACE STEEL!

    This is something Jr and I have not tried yet. But thats the awesome part of this great adventure I call knife making. Trying new stuff and working with new materials. As well as meeting new friends and learning new tricks, and sharing in each others successes as well as our set backs and straight up flops!

    If you have read this all the way to here, Please post something to let me know you would be interested in seeing a new "OUT OF THIS WORLD" Work In Progress

    Thanks and God Bless YA!

    I would love to see it and hear more about it do you have a picture of the meteorite as is? It'd be cool to follow it from big rock to iron to Damascus billet to hopefully knife.

    Im glad to see there's some interest in this. Im super stoked about this.. But Im easily excited! lol

    Theres a really amazing and cool story as to how I came across the piece of Meteorite.. But Ill just say this..... God is GOOD! and it never ceases to amaze me how he orchestrates stuff!

    As far as when the WIP will start.. Its gona be a week or so, Randy Jr. is finishing up a order. Then barring any unforeseen stuff. We will start the process to forge this space rock into something resembling a bar of steel.. Then turn that into a billet of damascus! And followed up by making it into a sweet kitchen cutter!

    Also wanted to add a Thanks you to Mr. Delbert, who took a few minutes of his busy day to talk to Jr about the forging process giving us a little better chance of this working out.. right out of the gate. Thanks Del!!

    This is gona be a AMAZING, AWESOME, and PHENOMENAL experience for us, and a learning one at that.. Thanks again for posting.

    Ill start a NEW WIP thread ASAP.
