Old Blacksmith Skate Session

My blacksmith friend Eric came over today to show me his Japanese style chisels, which are a sweet design.

He did the little sun in the corner of a buckle from the scrap pile for a quick demonstration.  The messed up half finished palm tree is mine.  Didn't want Eric to get blamed for that!

It wasn't long before we got down to the serious stuff - riding the motorcycle and thrashin' the parking block.  Turns out we both used to be little skate rats back in the 80s.  I quit for a long time and just recently started skating again.  Eric stuck with it for a lot longer and is really good.  Oh yeah, and he's even better at blacksmithing - check out his website
