Welcome to the J W Bensinger Bladesmith subforum. I'm Jim, and I'm the guy that makes the knives. I've been making knives since I was a kid-1979 or so-and have been at it pretty much full time since 2005. I will be posting works in progress, stuff for sale now and then, and general musings on knife use, geometry and design, and the occasional digression. Thanks for checking it out!
