New Guy - Looking for help/advice in Durham area

Good evening all,

I've always been interested in blade smithing and recently took the plunge, got some steel (1084) and started grinding out a few simple pieces. I posted over on the newbies forum and someone suggested that I post over here and see if anyone is interested in giving me some advice before my first attempt at heat treating. 😀

Thanks,

-bill

Are you sure the meeting is the same weekend as the Forged Knife Blade class?

I don't think we remembered that class when the date was decided. I will touch base with Chris and we will decide another date.

Hey Barry,

I'll try and make the meeting on the 23rd if I can.

I posted pics of a couple simple kiridashi style utility knives that I had ground out (still need heat treat). This was over in the newbies area:

Thanks,
