    is another "Bowie hammer-in" coming up Oct. 14-16 in Knoxville, TN. I attended the first one he had a couple years back and it lasted three days. Lots of experienced bladesmiths attended providing various demonstrations and there was time for hands on experience. It wasn't all forging, but flint napping, sheath making, damascus, etc. There were some contests like hemp cutting and wood chopping, and also a raffle and some vendors.

    If anyone is interested, see this link below to info on last years event which includes the address and contact phone numbers. I believe he allows some camping, but call him to make sure if you plan to camp.


    Maybe crksht will come add the pics, (I don't want to hotlink from the FalFiles...)
