"I like to make functional items. So things like Hooks, or Handles for drawers, Bottle Openers, I've done a few knives and tomahawks. So a little bit of everything, it's great. Plus if I've had a bad day I can go out beat on some metal…"
I've been doing a variety of martial arts once or twice per week for the past 10ish years (give or take). I also read a lot (mostly online) about martial arts, their roots and origins, their inter-connectivity, how…"

But even if we are talking about isis. I still don't see the nazi connection. What I see is a…"
