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. Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki Welcome aboard Chris!
