Maybe very small donations should be contributed when people want to add to the book so we can pitch on something for whoever actually compiles this monster?
also a separate train of thought what if the forum can commission a colab. blade; Ealy Damascus or DT Damascus, Grind, Profile, Handle, Steels. Sharpened my Dave, forced patina, Handle design, Blade finish. Pass around for the builders, then us Build a super blade and show Japan what North America's got
Sorry for the double post 20/20 hind sight.
