Sorry I haven't been around here much the past few months, I've been in a fast moving current of interesting changes. I'll try and get back more often and keep my foot in the door. The quick and dirty is I'm woodworking back in Boston with a friend (Kevin) who makes pretty large scale stuff. We just finished up a beautiful restaurant front, now working on a custom kitchen pantry for a fancy house. Kevin has a second house about an hour outside the city that he offered me to stay in as a caretaker so that's where I'm staying. It's a sweet little cottage in the middle of the woods, which suits me just fine. But I told him not to expect me full time because I need to start making knives and he said 'why don't you put a knife shop in behind the house?' I went and looked and there is a primitive shack out back that could actually work.... I'll get some pics of all this stuff in the near future.

My hip is healing up pretty nicely, after a brief period where it clearly wasn't. Happy to be on the other side of that for sure.

I hope you guys are all doing great, and I'd like to thank everybody again for all the support, prayers, and well wishes. It really meant a lot going into and coming out of the surgery.

I'm looking forward to having some time to get caught up around here and see what you've all been up to. Until then I hope that everybody's knives are sharp and seeing lots of action.

Cheers,
Ken

ps. I currently don't have an internet connection where I'm staying, and no data plan on my phone :rolleyes: so it'll be sporadic when I get on here until I get that sorted out. But I've been thinking about you all a lot and wanted to get my butt in here and say hello.

Ken who...? :p


I am really happy to hear that life is going well for you and the healing post-surgery has finally turned the corner in the right direction. It sounds like you have found a great living situation away from the masses where you can pursue your passions for woodworking and knife making.

I wish you all the best my friend. Stay in touch. I hope that you are still planning to come to the Blade Show this year.

Best regards,

Phil

Great to see your name popping up around here. I am glad to hear your recovery is progressing on the right track and you are able to get back to doing what you need to do.

Sounds like you have a unique living situation many would be envious of, myself included. Enjoy the peacefulness; signs of Spring are among us in the northeast - it's a great time.

Glad to hear you are doing well Ken. Sounds like you are staying busy and making a strong recovery now. Only spoke with you a handful of times before you left, but you left a good impression and were always kind to me when we interacted. I wish you all the best in your future endeavors, and hope to follow along your updates and what you are working on in the future. Cheers!
