I’ll be visiting the forge in May and while I was hoping to take a proper knife making class with Oz, it’ll have to wait. I’ll be happy to watch him work & take pics & maybe I’ll get to do manly things. Of course I dunno how manly I’ll be in pigtails & lip gloss but hey.
:D


I am hopeful Oz will take photos when you are though.


I'll try to look as manly as possible.

Indeed... :roll:

"manly men" doing "manly things" and slipping knives where they don't belong... :shock:

Except for Angel, obviously. 8)

I had a quick google on it and found the following:

"This species occurs in the warmer parts of KwaZulu-Natal, Mpumalanga, Northern and North West Provinces as well as in central Africa. It is found in deciduous woodlands, often along watercourses in single-species stands. The flowers (which are either male or female) are borne on the same tree in lateral spikes. The fruit is a smooth capsule of three parts. This three-lobed capsule is a clue to family identification as it is characteristic of the family Euphorbiaceae. The bark is black or almost so, thick, rough, and neatly cracked into rectangular sections. The tree is widely known for its fine wood, its toxic properties, and its "jumping beans". The latex is acrid, raising skin blisters on those sensitive to it and causing severe pain and even loss of sight if it enters the eyes (the antidote is said to be cow's milk). The smoke of the burning wood may induce headaches. Parts of the tree are used medicinally and in magic. The seeds are frequently parasitised by the larvae of the moth Emporia melanobasis that, as they straighten themselves out within the seeds, cause them to jump as high as 300 mm into the air. "

Which explains the headache I had last night after drilling this stuff....


You too huh? I had a banging headache last night, I figured it was all the talk about Mazdas...

There was this one time, oh nevermind. I was going to say something about the tatoo parlor but it doesn't matter anymore.

Oz, I think I've found an artist for my tatoo design. I trust the guy. He's got some nice work.

It was the thing with the parrot and the guinness wasn't it?

You have? Awesome! And not before time too... ;) I must admit, the urge is on me to get another. I want something like the one I had done with you but across my chest...

Hah! I'll never trust a tattooist again!

He knew I am a keen fisherman, so when I asked for a pair of pollocks tattooed on my back I assumed he knew what I wanted!

This surprises you? We've all known that Karl blows monkeys for ages ... of course, we just don't like to talk about it too very often out of respect for the monkeys. :lol:

Well, that explains where he is then. If it takes him ages to blow a single monkey...
