Did my first forge welded knife. I joined a railroad spike to a old piece of tractor rake I found in the back yard. It gave me more steel to work with and the rake is high carbon so it will hold a wicked edge. This one turned out how I wanted it to, for the most part. Even kind of matches my style of wood work.
Made a hair slide clip while working on a new knife.
Finished a rigging knife for a friend. No tips allowed on the Brig Niagra. Really only my second wooden handle looks way better than my first.
In Erie PA in January to get a sunny 44 deg day with no snow means we have chance to prune the fruit trees and grapes without a snowsuit. After the January we had 44 is tee shirt weather for me. All the kids helped and even the chicken got in on it. Great to be out in the sun.
