    This year for the featured event, for every four hours a guest blacksmith demonstrates, he/she gets to drop their name in a hat for a drawing to win this knife and sheath. I donated the pattern welded steel blank, Jim Poling forged and finished the blade, Phil Ylitalo installed the ironwood handle, Roger Cook will be making a sheath for it. I'll post more photos when I have the sheath. Those of us who man the shops every year will be excluded from the drawing.

    That is a GREAT looking knife and sheath! You folks came up with a good way of allowing people to get in the drawing.

    Can I get an "honorary blacksmith" title and sign up even if I don't work in a blacksmith shop?
    Can you be bribed? How many chocolate chip cookies would count as 4 hours of work?;)...

    Later,

    Now, really one end thick and one end thin---it all averages out--just turn every other board end for end. Ya know we really need to give this poor guy a break here. :)
