I have always been interested in in swords/knives/bows/all types of weapons.
With the show Forged in Fire, there are a lot of blacksmiths out there and I found one in PHX that does classes. Saturday/Sunday there was an advanced knife making class, which I took. Since I am only home Friday eve to Sunday afternoon, I had little time at home.
Still it was a lot of fun.
