It could happen here. I would love to see some more blacksmiths doing small production type operations like Takeda does. The only one I can think of that does it is Carter. Most of the others do mostly custom work which I think is a difficult way to make a living. I've toyed with the idea more than once but I kind of have my hands full with this thing.

i would apprentice anywhere in the world so long as anyone would take me in under their wing.

been thinking of doing so since before december but i have no idea who'd be willing to take me on.

this idea sounds good tho.

I would take on this type of education in a heartbeat. I am tied to a job with regular wage to keep my bills paid, but I have enough time to learn and practice. I love manual labor that is more technique then muscle based. I have a strong background in chemistry. I understand why people want the knife characteristics that they do. Think about it. I would work with the right people even if I stand to ONLY learn and maybe get some first hand experience. Im sure there are many people in this world that would enjoy a chance to take it on as a career.
