Where are all the Santa Barbara County Makers ~ Several months back I met a kid from a craigslist add I had posted and he asked if he could come by and see my knives and my set up, so I invited him over and gave him a Signed copy of Wayne Goddard's how to make knives books along with several pieces of 1095 I had.....later I was invited over to his house to see his homemade forge him and a couple of his friends had made out of was a big forge enclosed in an overhead outdoor patio his dad had built for him.....he had showed me a couple of pieces he had tried his hand being a ninja sword but it was very soft steel and would I shared my two cents with him by suggesting he starting out on something a bit smaller and showing him how to test steel to see if it would be good and suitable for a good knife or not using the heat, quench and break method. Today I wonder if he is even still making knives and if his passion stuck with him or not. I think I will try and make contact with him and see what he's been up to lately and if he is still pursuing his knife making passion or not. As for this one encounter I rarely if ever see anyone around my parts that's close by as to local makers and wish there was ~ "J"
