Hello fellow bladeforumers! I am also a knife dogger and recently Bruce Bump that is also on both forums invited over Jesse James of West Coast Choppers that is now making Damascus slide 1911's and has a pilot of a new show he shared with us. This has some EXCELLENT comments by Master Smith, Jerry Fisk and lots of other great points by jesse about the learning process and a great woodworker as well. I have never met jesse, or talked/communicated with him directly and don't receive anything from postings thing link. I thought others could learn from it as I have. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y_DTKASREEM Jesse James made in America, If it says, Pay up suckers, just click on it a few times and it will start.
