Saturday Nov. 4th will be our next shop tour.  Steve Hansen will be hosting it at his shop.  Plans are to discuss folders in the morning and then after lunch do some forging.  Retired, famed art knife folder maker Tim Herman will be there to discuss folder making.  If you have any extra items you'd like to bring and donate for the Iron in the Hat raffle, please do.  There's sure to be a great time for all with plenty of shop talk.  Everyone on their own for lunch, plenty of places in town or a collection for pizza could be taken.  Steve's address is:                  19626 Anderson Rd. Chanute, KS.  66720



Below are some pictures of three of four of our members at the recent 2017 I.C.C.E. show in KC, MO.  I hope to get a picture of our fourth member, Dan Petersen of Auburn, KS. 


If you missed the show you missed some of the worlds best knifemakers and their wares, along with some very educational seminars put on by the ABS and The Knifemaker's Guild.
