We've had a string of vivitors here in Panaca over the last week, two of which are members of the board here.
Last Tuesday Dr. Sam Wise came up and spent a day and a half forging and making knives.
Thursday TK59 and Kalaeb came and visited for a few days. Tinh had a list of things that he wanted to do and get done. We did some forging and grinding, heat treating, handles etc.
This Tuesday knife maker Keith Ouye came by so that I would finish his damascus order. Inbetween all of those guys, knife makers Jim Sargent and Gary Powell dropped by for a half a day or so.
Professor Tinh ground a blade and did some sharpening inbetween cooking and waiting for his boiled egg to thaw.
Kakaeb (matt) ground most of a blade and we showed him how to make a wa handle. He already does some really nice western handles for Mark. Matt was a sprinter in college and had a time of 48 something seconds in the 400 meter, that's fast. He has an interesting job, ask him about it some time.
Professor Tinh did what he could to keep me from getting grouchy. We had a great time.
Matt got pulled over for doing 35 in a 25 while leaving Panaca. The officer asked him why he was in Panaca, he said that he was visiting a friend. The officer asked who the friend was and Matt said Devin Thomas. The officer told Matt to tell Devin that he just got you out of a ticket. hehe
Nobody was really lost, but somehow they ended up in the middle of no where.
Love and respect.
