Dune, I dug around and found my copy of "How To Make Knives" by Richard w. Barney and Robert W. Loveless. Definitely worth a read. Mine cost $14 a few years ago, they might have it at a nearby library. I'm going to read it again in honor. Would suggest it to anyone.

I love ya JD, you've been damn decent to me since I discovered this coffeeklatch, but I think sometimes you're a wee bit fond of bringing the hammer down with a "declaration of truth".
I think if you knew Dillinger as well as you do knives, you'd have read JD's post as the humorous response it was.

It's true, that post was entirely in jest and was not meant to offend. Mea Culpa.

No offense taken. I've just been being misunderstood a bunch lately.
