Jason did a blacksmithing demo for a local small town festival last weekend. I was able to go up and briefly see him on my lunch break, so I snapped some pictures while I was there. These are some of his railroad-spike knives.
Oh, sure, it may look like a glamorous life, but he comes back with arms completely gray-black from soot and dust.
And then eats basically a whole pig all on his own if one is available.
