Sanity Check

I have posted quite a few images here on DA, so for your sanity I would suggest you use the folders in my gallery for best results.


Since the first I have driven over 1,700 miles (2,786 km) in and around the Idaho, Oregon, and Washington state area. Needless to say, I have a back log of photos from my travels. I am catching up on the comments and replies before I start editing the next photo-dump; but I will be uploading soon! :D (Big Grin) 


SkyfireDragon's Profile Picture

Artist | Artisan Crafts
United States

A B’hampster (Resident of Bellingham, Washington State, USA. Transplanted from Binghamton, New York, USA)

USN (Retired) 1984-2004; Aviation Fire Control Technician (AQ) 1984-1991(O level), then rate combined into Aviation Electronics Technician (AT) 1991-1996 (O level), 1996-2004 (I level).

dragonwooddesigns.deviantart.c… is my lady wife of these many years. Is my new stock account. (Started 18 January, 2016)

My interests are broad and varied, encompassing many fields of study.

I like to make knives, weapons, and tools. Most of my knives are sculpture in the multi-mediums of metal and wood, plus leather for the sheaths. My skills include metal, wood, and leather-working. I also work with decorative knots and braids. Years ago I was apprenticed to a weapon and sword smith through the SCA, but I could not stay with it due to being on active sea duty in the Navy. When I left the SCA I was a journeyman metal smith. Adding to my skills I have also taken classes in metal casting, tool making, and jewelry smithing.

Recycling is a big part of acquiring my materials. I pick up old lawnmower and saw blades to cut up and use for my knife blanks. I will go to my local recycling company and purchase pieces of copper, brass, and other metals for projects. I will also buy old tools and drill-bits and refurbish or re-purpose them. Some of the wood I use comes from old trim molding and pallets.

Along the way I have discovered that I like photography. I started out just wanting to take pictures of family and the knives I had made. Now I am having a blast getting out and taking photographs of the world around me.

I also draw and sketch, but mostly for weapon and tool concepts. I am not that good at drawing people or animals. I am old-school; I use mechanical pencils and pens on paper. Only recently have I been trying out different drawing programs.

If you have any questions or observation, feel to send them my way.

Which color combination do you like?
