We had a great time in Statesboro this past weekend at Twin Blades Shop. We want to thank Charlie and Harry Mathews for hosting, and thanks to Susan for all her hard work. Also thank you to the four individuals who presented the very informative demos. Look for more details in the next Steel and Fire Newsletter. We had 58 present including members, guests, and 5 new members. The day began with cool weather (29 degrees) but after lunch it felt like spring (about 60 degrees).
The demos will be one done by Don Tommey on wire inlay on knife handle. Another will be Wayne Hensley on how to get a mirror polish shine on the knife blade.
