    Congratulations on getting your own forum Chris. I'm proud to know you brother. You're a hell of a knifemaker, and its a great thing to watch you grow as a craftsman! This is a big step for your business so congratulations on that part too.

    For those that don't know, Chris came on as my apprentice and as a sander at Fiddleback Forge around October of 2014. He was quite skilled already by this point having studied with Stephen Fowler and actively participating in the Georgia Custom Knifemakers Guild. Really all I did was teach a few tricks and help a bit with his designs. Chris is now the Shop Foreman at Fiddleback Forge. He graduated from my apprentice program recently by submitting this knife to me.

I plan to start adding threads and posting pictures this weekend, I am excited about the opportunity to build my own Subforum and community here on Blade Forums. I am geared up for Blade Show this year and already well into my batch of knives I am preparing to bring. More to come as time permits.

    Thank you, I really enjoyed seeing your review. It was good to see someone who still uses the old horse. I grew up riding,its a shame I haven't been able to get in the saddle much over the last 10 years, but I make sure my daughter rides most weekends she can on her horse.
