KGA SHOP TOUR
MAY 2ND, 2015
The KGA shop tour will be held at the home of Ray Kirk.
Time is from 10:00 AM till around 4:00 PM
Also, could you bring a chair if you have one, there will be a good crowd here and I am not sure I have enough.
The main course will be pulled pork with potato salad and beans. Side dishes are welcome, especially pecan pie.
This is the knife kit you can use to make your own knife in the afternoon forging class. A predrilled cedar block from a 100+ year old cedar tree, a 7″ piece of 3/8″ dia. 52100 and some fast epoxy to help eliminate waiting time.
For those that was present at the Facebook for business presentation. My daughter said she forgot to tell all makers to be friends with your customers. When you sell them a knife, take a pic and tag them in the photo. That way all their friends can also see them and hopefully, a smiling face. 🙂
There were over 40 that signed the guest book and we had a great time.
Gary Robertson won first choice of the grand prize drawing of the Iron in the Hat and he chose the Raker Medicine Blade. Jim McGuinn was the second ticket drawn and he got the Gary Crowder folder. Two happy winners.
The afternoon was spent forging knives in the back yard. We had two forges going and a lot of enthusiasm for some that had also never done any forging. They did a great job and several had to take them home and complete them. Just not enough time to get every ones done.
As I get some more pics, I will post them on the web site.
