The Twelfth Annual Batson Bladesmithing Symposium & Knife Show
April 7-9, 2000   Report by James Wolfe
Cousin William White demonstrated an "old timey" knife making technic by making a knife out of an old buggy spring. First, he forged the blade, then he filed and shaped the blade to make a nice hunting knife.
While watching Cousin Willy's demo, I first met Merrill Davis, age 21, and his grandad, M.B. Davis, 82 year's young. Merrill, from Mapleton Georgia, is a three-year blacksmith. His grandad became interested in blacksmithing through his grandson. This is the second Batson Symposium Merrill has attended. space
