I’ve been a bit quiet lately on social media as I took some time off to go on a family holiday to North Spain. It’s a fabulous place and even though I was on holiday I couldn’t resist picking up a few new pen knives - all in the name of research of course!
This month we've started the filming on a short art film I’m making - Walking the Iron River. It’s certainly been the best time of year for wading (and sometimes swimming!) down the river Sheaf which flows through Sheffield. The river provided the power for the grinding wheels for knife makers of times gone by and is full of old treasures!
Next week will be the last knife sale until the end of September. I’ve been busy making some really interesting pieces for it including this one, using the cogs from an ancient grandfather clock.
