Thanks, those prices are believable, but I think 40 hours is way short, 120 is believable since he had to start over when he was way along with the blade.

Slicing paper, or perhaps Mr. Boddy in the Library.

Very cool. I'm pretty impressed that the axe head was constructed traditionally. A lot of folks just make the entire thing out of steel, instead of splitting mild steel and welding in steel at the edge.

Making some hammers and axes is on my list of things to try, when I can find some room in the supplies budget.

I've been making a few nails here and there to practice hammer control. It takes me 5-10 minutes for each one. Fun and good practice, but those nails are expensive!

People used to burn down their cabins when they moved so they could collect the nails for the next cabin they'd build.

That reminded me of Jonathan Nedbor. He came to teach at a local blacksmith workshop last year. His home/shop is in High Falls, NY. He is a student of Dutch Colonial ironwork.

He talked about this and how nails retrieved this way would be straightened by children.

Unfortunately he has no web presence. If you are ever down in his neck of the woods, I would stop by.

I'm trying to get my children to sort my miscellaneous fasteners into broad categories. nails, screws, bolts. They are pretty good, but the attention span isn't there. Maybe I should put an audio book on for them...

I've got the first of two knives for classicman finished, packed and ready to ship tomorrow. It's going to BigV for a sheath.

When I've got my pennies lined up, I want to start making my own sheaths. I think I'll start with Kydex/thermoform sheeting sheaths. Which leads me to the next round of porn. Covering up that naked steel:

(Warning: These are somewhat in-depth, from what I've watched so far.)

One of my less pleasant chores when I was young was to read the Bible from one end to the other. Reading the Bible straight through is at least 70 percent discipline, like learning Latin. But the good parts are, of course, simply amazing. God is an extremely uneven writer, but when He's good, nobody can touch Him.
