Message JD and Joseph,

Congratulations on a really nice website.

I was lucky enough to handle a few of your knives at the Blade Show in June. The photos are great but the knives are even better up close.

Keep up the super work.

Message Beautiful site! The Persian fighting dagger that JD made for me many years ago still causes jaws to drop when I display it. The real beauty of these works is in the heft, balance and "rightness" in the hand. Ergonomics is too cold a word for it. There is probably a Japanese word for aesthetics in utility, but I don't know it.

Message Hi JD,

You visited my blacksmith shop today and I was very impressed with your portfolio. The damascus and wootz patterns were incredible. You have an amazing command of the material. The gorgeous blades combined with the unbelievable handles made for museum quality work.

It was great meeting you and see your work.

Message Seeing forged in fire for time 6mo ago in the break room at work and witnessing Mr. Smiths expertise in the forge I've been inspired to undertake blacksmithing or metalworking as a whole.
