My book

I thought I'd share the fact that I finally completed the project I've been working intermittently on for over a decade.

This is how I make knives explained. I won't say it's the best way, and this book is meant to inspire and inform, not necessarily to instruct. There is plenty of discussion on tools and of course, grinders. There's a lot of good info in the appendix and of course, lots of pictures.

I hope this post is welcome here Ray. Feel free to moderate me if it is not.

The book does look great indeed, Andy! If you haven't already, you should list it and your other books on Amazon. My DVDs are on Amazon, it was easy to do and they sell steadily.....

Thanks guys. I enjoyed the process.
Listing with retailers more than doubles the already borderline high price. That's self-publishing for you.

Andy, if memory serves correctly, your table was next to the north wall, I shared a table
with Mike Miller just across from you...I believe you had some law enforcement items, also...
I do know it was at a Holiday Inn(I think!)
