Busy weekend...Kornmarkt in Witten
Celtac design, ball bearing steel, rather thin at 3 mm x 115mm length
EDC En-Nep, 3 mm x 85 mm, laminate wrought iron / tank bearing steel
Integral En-Nep, spring steel
Two "Birka" pumpkin carving and kitchen knives made from spring steel in autumn:-). Great for stuffing zucchini and cucumbers and the like, too, and work like a cinch on pumpkins.
And another friction folder blade. Spring steel, and yap, I shortened the tang;-). And cleaned up the surface, too, for it was bit of... erm ... scrawny?;-)
www.alte-drechselkunst.de. He offered courses for kids and adults alike and is another friendly guy I had the privilege to meet.
The location in Witten city near the Jhannis church.
Made working next to the stage a real cinch. Thanks for those really nice and gentle songs!
I came home on Sunday night a wreck, but I was deeply contented by the thought of having done a great job with great people and getting to know interesting people who love what they do, too. I bonked hard at the end of both days, but it gave me more energy than it all cost me. It was simply a great experience being there, having fun with the kids. Volker is simply a great guy to work with, too. And I am right grateful for the course my life is taking these days.
