Right now my workshop is collecting dust, but not in the industrious way it normally does. I have not spent an hour at my workbench since February. After a lifetime of thinking about it, I joined the military in my mid thirties. After three years of patience and persistence I was offered a position with Air Force Combat Search and Rescue based out of my home in Alaska. This demands all my time and attention to be successful. I will return to knife making when time allows but for now I'm honing myself to be a member of this elite group.
