A view through the wheel. The black, horizontal line is the axle, the single largest forging to that time.

"From here to Eternity"

Paul Valery

"You are in love with intelligence, until it frightens you. For your ideas are terrifying and your hearts are faint. Your acts of pity and cruelty are absurd, committed with no calm, as if they were irresistible. Finally, you fear blood more and more. Blood and time."

The Wisdom of the Ages

"When a young man, I read somewhere the following: God the Almighty said, 'All that is too complex is unnecessary, and it is simple that is needed',"

Mikhail Kalashnikov

What's with the tutu?

Oh man. The Madogre made a crack about my "skirt". It's a tutu, George.
Maybe an explanation is in order lest someone think I have ballet skills and wants me to audition for the lead in "Giselle" or something. The whole thing could get quite embarassing.
Long, long ago, when I first started making knives and selling them on E(vil empire)-Bay and dreaming of the day when I could have my own website, I started shopping around other knife sites to see how they were put together. In short, I suffered some feelings of insecurity in the face of all the very polished "photos of the artist" pictures I ran across. With no real purpose to it other than a symbolic "me too", I came up with the tutu photo. I like it. It was even taken on a film camera, my old Canon FTbrick (for sale by the way) and colorized to look old-timey. And, I think you should all be pleased that I wasn't wearing tights, that my lunacy had some limits.
