    Hello from western ny.

    hello all. I have been lurking here for a while, but my addiction is getting to the point where just browsing is not enough.
    Started to cook three years ago and got into sharpening soon thereafter. all downhill from there.
    I have a month off starting next week before attending culinary school(tough decision) and am hoping to do lots of tinkering with my free time.
    Fortunately for me, i come from a family of artisans and craftsman and my fathers shop is a short drive away with every power tool imaginable. (hes a glassblower, so diamonds on everything, wet belts lapping wheels, grinding wheels, bandsaw ect ect.)
    it should be a fun month.
    also hoping to learn more about making knives...only thing i have made was a small obsidian sharp thing when i was fifteen.
    (but next summer i will be out in montana, and my uncle does metal and iron sculpture for a living. so hes got fun stuff too.

    id say im well setup to get far too into this stuff.
