      The photo section now has 2 new pictures
      in the Zen and the Art of Knifemaking
      albums (pics 15 and 16). The first is
      a 12 1/2" long maple burl handled knife
      with a brass guard and a 1095 steel blade.
      The second is 19 3/4" long and has a
      beadblasted 1095 steel blade, and a brass
      and steel guard with a buckeye burl handle.
      I again found the focusing that takes place
      during the construction process brings about
      an excellent "high". Unlike tossing around
      concepts and words to make some point, you
      must be very focused and one-pointed when
      working with tools, machines, and sharp things,
      or some of the points you make can quickly end
      up in you. And there is no doubt that the more
      one practices, the better one gets at IT.

      When done working on any specific craft or task,
      the intense inner and outer focus that was idealy
      used during the creative process need not end just
      because you leave your workshop, as the whole world is
      your real working environment, and perfect attention in
      every moment is always appropriate...and a great "high".
