Wanted to introduce myself

Hello everyone,this is a cool forum, my name is Kenneth,i am from picayune,ms

Recently had some major life changes,and as i always been a fan of blade smiting,forging,knife making but never took the plunge to try it,that time has changed.

I graduated college this year with a degree in I.T,designed websites to put myself threw school but now that i have a bunch of free time,i want to learn,understand,and put forth effort into keeping this art alive and making blades

if anyone lives close,send me a message dont be shy!

Welcome aboard, Kenneth! The best way to learn is to get started. An easy way to start is with a kit knife. Go to knifekits.com and find a blade you like and turn it into a finished knife, add a sheath, continue from there...
