Hello all. I'm reintroducing myself since it looks like thats a must after the new changes. I really am a lurker to be honest though, lol. I've bought some knives over the last couple years from this forum and mostly browse the threads learning new things every time I log in. I'm a yooper from the U.P. of Michigan. Spent the last decade in an iron mine digging up orel for all of our awesome blades. I'm a welder by trade and have recently started playing with a forge and anvil. I do a lot of hunting and bush crafting and take advantage of the fact that I live close enough to DLT Trading, KnivesShipFree, and BRKT to visit when I feel like it! Glad to be a part of the knife community and am happy to be a part of the JD.
