are there any knife makers near Cobb county, GA?
or anywhere else?
You should come to the GA Knifemakers Guild meeting in Alto this weekend. There will be lots of talented makers there. There will be 3 demo's starting at around 8 am. Scott Davidson is going to show how to weld on an extension to a stick tang, there is a friction folder build with Wayne Hensley, and I will be leading a 'Business of Knifemaking' discussion as well. My part is the least worthwhile part of the meeting to me. Its in there out of desperation because no one else stepped up for the 3rd demo.
Alto is NE of Gainesville. There is also a free shooting range just around the corner from Scotts shop there in Wilson Shoals WMA that we like to visit.
