Virtualization Engineer, with a focus on VMware technologies by day. Knifemaker, welder, fabricator, by night and on the weekends. Plus [bread] baker, home brewer (ales from the British Isles) and maker of mead.
Latest endeavor has been getting back into knife making. The last time I did this was back in the mid to late 1990’s. I decided to get back into this (starting in the middle of 2017). Going with forging the blades this time, instead of just stock removal. It requires a bit more work at the start of the process, but it’s a more efficient use of the materials.
