Hi from Alberta, Canada. Really looking forward to this Journey.  I started 2 years ago making my forge and tools.  Took a blacksmith course at the local college and have really enjoyed the craft.  I am a full time IT manager and the time in the shop is perfect for escaping the internet.  I loose myself for hours.  Plus I have found it is a hobby that makes me some extra cash.  I am working out of my garage for now, but am building a shop at our lake lot (3.8 acres) that I hope to move into in 2 years.  So far I have made a total of 9 knives (I know not that many) but have found I am getting a loyal following of clients.  I now have commissioned work for the next 3 months.  Something I never thought would happen.  I am finding that come September, everyone wants hunting knives and for some reason a 10" bowie.

Ive started stabilizing my own wood and making sheaths so people get a complete package from me.

My work can be seen at  

This was the 3rd knife I made, by hand hammering a 104 layers of damascus.
