Some of the process of making Helm Enterprises tomahawks

I finally got video edited and uploaded that was shot back in the cooler weather. Here is a look at the grinding and heat treatment on my tactical 'hawks.

Be sure to watch all the to the end for the nuttiness after the seriousness.  :D

A look at handles is next, and I need to shoot an updated look at making sheaths.

Why I love TeroTuf for my handles

'Nuff said.

Home again, home again, jiggity jig

Whew!  It's past 11:30 at night, and I have just now settled down at home after returning from the Blade Show.  I haven't stopped long enough to be able to catch up on e-mail since before I left, so I you sent me a message in the last few days and haven't heard back yet, give me a little while!

I had the most successful Blade Show so far, and needed about four more days to get around to see and talk with everyone I wanted to, much less see everyone I don't already know.  My loverly bride Allie always makes a trip better, and on a practical side was a great table monkey.  I wouldn't have had nearly as enjoyable a show just by myself, and I know I wouldn't have been as good at the world's largest shoe and purse convention as she was at the world's largest knife show.  :)

I'm hitting the road again tomorrow to go attend the Robert E. Howard Days in Cross Plains Texas with my brother and my friend.  Good literary discussion about sword-wielding barbarians, in the heat of early summer in central Texas, thirty miles from where I grew up.  I will endeavor to catch up some on e-mails before I come back home earl next week, and am about to hit a few critical ones before my eyes droop right now.

So, had a great show, glad to be back, excited and energized to get back in the shop.  And catch up on sleep as I go!

Blade Show!

I'm on my way to the Blade Show with the trunk of my rental car stuffed full of goodies!

I'll be at table 4CC with my loverly bride.  Hope to see y'all there!
