Hi Dick
Nice to see someone else here from the evergreen state :D

I be on the "left" side of the Cascades about as far North and West as you can go . Any farther North or West and I'd be a Canuck
Any who's...great bunch of folks here.

I'm in Colville, northeast conservative side of the state! I'm glad to see someone is from the NW, feel kinda lonely without chile cook-offs and bbq contests!
Thanks for your reply.

Looks like you're settling in just fine DickC - - - I spent 5 wonderful years at 10,000' in Summit County Colorado - - - but at 75, I'm glad I'm not there now :laughing7: :D :lol: You also mentioned handmade knives :tup: do you have a website and do you make them for the public? my youngest son and I messed with knife making on a very small scale and wished we'd had more time to spend learning the trade - - - about the time we quit, I was ready to try and do some of that ornate case-hardening but those days are gone I'm afraid.

I grew up on the Frying Pan River at Thomasville. I did a lot of jeeping on the Blue, hiking and fishing too.
I don't have a web site, got to old to do it; I've made nearly 2000 knives since 1972, still do it, just came in from grinding all afternoon! I try not to take orders anymore, never know if I'll get to make them. Good luck on your knifemaking.
