My name is Keith, and I reside in Kentucky. I have been bladesmithing for about two years now, and recently joined the ABS. I have been fascinated with this craft since I was a child, but figured it was a craft of the past. Once I found a fellow smith, I took a class and got hooked. I have found that bladesmithing has helped me a lot with my PTSD from the military, and from the stress of working in law enforcement. I really enjoy learning all I can, and then applying that to my craft.
