I've been meaning to introduce myself here for a while now but life just keeps getting in the way. Anyhoo...
My name is Dave and I live in the metro Atlanta Ga. area. I have been involved with shooting sports for MANY years and currently enjoy informal target shooting with my wife. My favorite guns: my 1911s.
I am also into knives and have a modest collection ranging from Kershaw to a few Dawsons. Keeping them razor sharp is almost an obsession at times, a trait that may well come back to bite me when it comes to swords. I am new swords and currently own three, two CS Hand and a Half and one cheapie I bought just to practice sharpening longer blades. Ironically, the cheapie actually came sharper than the CS swords. Go figure...
That's about it for now, however, I would like to thank all those who take the time to share their wealth of knowledge with us newbies.
Darn, I trained for the Third World War, but what I got was War in the Third World. "Specialization is for insects" -- Robert A. Heinlein “Do not draw, do not force others to draw. Do not cut, do not force others to cut. Do not kill, do not be killed. Even if one encounters the greatest of sinners, one should kindly offer sermon and show them the path of good men. If the worst occurs and they do not conform, then without hesitation apply kesagiri and send them to Buddha.”
carbon: Sharpened one of my C/S H&H swords for the first time using an adjustable fixture I made. Went from a little better than butter knife to an even, polished, paper slicing edge. It's a slow process but it does work.
