<signing up for the list> I look forward to it, and yes I can flip a switch.

Subject: NK - This blacksmith and his sword
Thank you to those of you who wished to help me with my project of the
Norse Sword I will be attempting in the fall. I will be happy to have any
who want to come and enjoy the birth of this blade, however this will be
at Yoshiie's home so at this time I cannot commit to much untill I clear
him. It has been his policy, to teach those who wish to learn and I do not
see a small group a problem. I will know more as the time approches.
As to tending to the bellows.... well, How good are you at fliping a
switch? We have an electric blower on the forge, it is one of the few
luxuries we afford ourselves in this art. I eventually plan to build a
period forge and bellows along with a workshop in the medival fashion of
consturction ( i.e. timberframing and cob walls). I am currently
the piss and vinager out of the subject but, it is a slow process.
on financil stability and time constraits I hope to start construction in
spring. Once done I hope to be able to make it available to interested
parties in the populace as much as I can.
In service ,
