    Sucks..........

    That's really all I've got....but I'll add more.

    I guess the problem is, I've got about a bazillion ideas, and just as many knives going, and I can't seem to focus on just finishing shit.

    So, what we're left with is balls to the walls the last week just trying to finish up some of the stuff that's halfway done. :decisions

    I'm really f'n efficient, as you can tell..........:popcorn:

    I hear ya, and I'm not even trying any of the smithing tests. That's probably too much stress for me, I'm already one more day from a meltdown. :)

    Q- how do you get to Carnegie Hall?

    A- practice, kid...practice


    I am going to be on your ass to work steadily all year long ( next year ) to keep things on the upward path to be ready for Blade when Blade surprises you next year!

    ( NOT literally on your ass ) :madaddy:

    plan your work and work your plan *or something*

    I learned to stop keeping shiney shit in the shop.... I would be in the middle of working on one knife and see another blade sitting on another bench....and off to screw with that one...then see another....and off to work on the that...

    ADD and knifemaking don't mix :)
