Hey Limey Pete, I heard that old time hobos shaved using a piece of broken glass because they couldn't afford a good razor. Do you think thats true?

  Laissez les bon temps rouler
Posted by: Rougaroux - 10-02-2018, 12:30 AM - Forum: Welcome To The Hoodlums - Replies (7)

Hello y'all.  I'm Rénald from Manchac, Louisiana. A buddy gave me a knife called a 'Karen Hood Chopper'. Nice knife, but then I had to find out who is Karen Hood. Lookin around on the interweb I found this place and signed up to see what I can see. I am a hunter, trapper, and fisherman by trade; and on occasion a scout and guide when someone gets himself lost in the swamp.

  Blade Show West
Posted by: ddennis2 - 09-29-2018, 04:34 PM - Forum: Knives and Assorted Weapons - Replies (11)

In case many of you do not know it, Blade Show West will be held in Portland, Oregon Oct 5-7, 2018.

At the show will be several Hoodlums, including yours truly, Brumbie, Stormcrow and Swede225, also know as Luke Swenson.  Luke and Blade Show West are mentioned
in the November issue of Blade magazine.  This is not the first time that Luke has appeared in that magazine and I daresay it will not be the last.  In addition to offering several examples of  his top notch knife skills, Luke will be involved in a roundtable discussion, "The Road to World Class Slip Joints" with Bill Ruple and Rusty Preston.

If you plan to attend, I highly suggest you sit in on this discussion from these award winning and extremely talented bladesmiths.  I know I plan to.

I was unaware of these Hood forums. I have collected them for a couple years now.  Picked up a hollow grind thug a couple weeks ago.

It has been a very busy summer and I haven't kept things updated as I should.

Had an awesome Blade Show this year (first weekend in June!  I am way behind!), and two full tables of inventory.  This year had the distinction of the *first* show I've ever had a table where I wasn't having to sharpen blades in the hotel room/at the table.  My wife was happy about that.  Big Grin

One table was dedicated to forged blades and the other to mid-techs.

I've used (and abused) many an "oilskin" article in the last two decades. Most were storebought, but a few were homemade. None of the ones I did myself came out as nice as the product he achieves.

This is long, but it's an easy stream while you're folding laundry or something. The nice part is where he looks at the actual properties of the organics he uses so that his blend won't leave oily stains on the furniture. Smile
