Hello guys, This will be the first HHH Knives shop visit/ mini hammer in. It will be the second Sunday in October in Marlette MI

Anyone that would like to join us for a fun day of forging and grinding and just goofing around in general should PM me for more detail.

Im also looking for suggestions that make for a good gathering. So far we have planned to have plenty of steel and lots of propane. Lots of sanders and tools with all the extras, Bits and belts and blades needed to play all day! Lunch and dinner and some cold drinks.

Hope you can make it.
Randy

Salty, Now thats a loaded question.. Are you asking about bringing a dog, or speaking of yourself? Or the third option could be you want to bring some ugly chicks!!

Of the 3, the first two would be a YES!! :) lol

Until further notice I'm in. When I told the wife about it the only thing she was concerned about was not having to take care of the dog. I'll bring some knives. Think about what you may want to take a look at. Or anyone else who is coming.

I'd also be curious if you are able to repair the "beast".

OK, with Salty and some of the other Chefs coming over, I really wanted to have one or some of my finished knives on hand. So they can use them, and help evaluate and critique my work.. Now I am a knife maker/user but dont have a bunch of my knives on hand normally. They are almost always sold B4 I ever turn on the lights in the shop to make em. So I was gona try and whoop up a 140 gyuto in time, just so I would have a HHH Knife here. :)

Good news, Son offered to let me hold onto the set of 4 damascus knives I just finished for him so we will have them on hand for the gathering! Son was also kind enough to let us use em! Yep, he told me to use em nd have some fun. So needless to say. Im gona!! :) This is cool! Thank you Son.

Just had to google where Marlette...not too far at all, just shoot up the VanDyke expressway.

Not sure if I will be free yet, but if so, I want in.

I'm not bringing a knife I made but I will bring a big hunk of meat. The question is....what kind? As far as putting a knife to something it all depends on what people are up for. Cutting steaks, slicing beef or both. Do you have a band saw?

Not sure if Mike has warned you, but I am planning on driving him up in the morning.

I am looking forward to meeting you and hanging on what looks like is going to be another fine fall day.

That and learning some new things. . .
