    Orrin Bliss here, from just east of Calgary. Only been knifemaking for a year or so, still figuring it out , I have just finished building my first 2” x 72” grinder which will make things a bit quicker. It’s all still new and interesting, except sanding that gets old quick.

    Welcome Orrin,

    Just "east of Calgary" says Strathmore, but I won't hold that against ya. LOL.

    Yup there's a lot of sanding involved in making a piece of steel into a knife; but that's like about 13% of the total fun!

    Thanks for joining us. If you have any questions (or pics to share) let us know.

    Hi Dan,

    Not quite that far East, between Chestermere and Langdon. My aforementioned grinder is based off of plans you compiled and posted, when it’s complete I’ll be sending you a pic or two for your build page if you’re still posting them. Thanks for the welcome.

    Welcome Orrin. I'm with you on the sanding. Though I have heard that some really enjoy that part.
