Hi Richard, I got your name and website address from Pete Farrell at HABA. I've got a 15 year old son that has very recently taken up knife making. So far he's been limited to cutting 1095 and we've created a very simple forge in the back yard to heat treat. Nathan (our son), is very interested in learning to forge, and Pete indicated that you might offer some training. I thought I'd shoot you a quick note to ask you if that's the case, and to see if you'd be willing to meet with Nathan some time in the future if we were to come out to your shop. I've been able to help him with basics, and get him set up with the basics of what he needs so far, but I'm about out of shareable knowledge. I look forward to hearing from you soon. Enjoy the holiday! Jason Bowker

You may not remember- I was the A&M cop that played around w making knives. Retired now, may put shop back together. Saw you on forged in fire, told my wife, hey I know him!That challenge was the stupidest knife I've ever seen, do they make that stuff up??

I visited your site this morning. VERY nice. I am jealous of your shop. The burls are awesome, along with the damascus. I always wanted to really get into learning knifemaking but think I will have to wait until I get some free time. I want to do a custom stock out of burl or AAA fancy walnut (less trouble) and start doing customizing on each of my guns. Anyhow, thanks for the card and that is a very nice setup you have.
