I'm going to spend some time with this guy tomorrow and probably buy a knife from him for my dad. He makes some excellent stone knives and it's a pure joy to watch him work the stone. good thing sitting and watching doesn't cost much because I'm just about broke. We get paid a bout 4 days early next week because of Thanksgiving. It can't come soon enough. Most of the bills paid but i hate not having much to speak of in checking.
