    This whole thing was born over a few drunken evening during A.G. Russell's show back in July.
    I was hanging out with Chad Nichols, Jody Muller and Michael Burch. They were talking Damascus ( like everyone does when they are hangin' with Chad). Of course I always have to get into the middle of a good Damascus conversation.
    So, all of a sudden Chad pipes up and suggests that we all come down to his place and do some collaborative Damascus and knife building together.
    Budda Bing!!!!! The First Annual Redneck Summit is born!!!!!

    This past week we all invaded Chads shop down in Blue Springs Mississippi for the Summit.
    It included 5 days of steel making, DRINKING, knife making, DRINKING, eating great food, DRINKING, and just some straight up DRINKING!!!!:cheesydevil::cheesydevil::cheesydevil:

    Since I got there 2 days ahead of Michael and Jody, Chad and I decided to do our first ever NICHOLS/KELLY COLLABORATION knife.:devil1:
    Then when Jody and Michael arrived we worked on a 2 knife 4 maker collaboration together.
    The first ever BURCH/MULLER/NICHOLS/KELLY COLLABORATION set.:devilzeek:devilzeek:devilzeek

    Attached are some works in progress pictures of the week...

    ENJOY!!!!!!!!!
