Early Knife Making, Mennonite Sam Stoner and a Primitive Knife Making Session to Come on April 25th



The earliest forms of knife like tools and weapons dates back to Lower Paleolithic period around 2 1/2 million years ago and would have been made from flint, rock and bone. The very first metal knives would have been made from Copper, being double edged and symmetrical type daggers. There are many types of knives, knife designs and uses for them depending on the culture of people and the knives intended use.

It is estimated that around 4000 years ago, in the Bronze age, the first single edged knife was created. The men and women would have used this type of knife for cooking, hunting and carpentry work.

The word knife, itself, is said to come from the old Norse word for blade which is ‘knifr’.

During the early 1800’s the knife making guilds of Sheffield were the largest exporters to America from England. These men crafted excellent and superior quality knives that were consistent. Many blacksmiths and small companies were crafting fine knives domestically but had a difficult time among consumers because of the lack of consistent quality.

There is so much intriguing information about the history of knives and how their are constructed. I will not be getting into the details and immense history but just grazing on some of the information and my past visit with Knife Forger and Mennonite, Sam Stoner from Allen County, Kentucky.

Many of you will remember my writing from a few years back on Sam and other artisans in the Mennonite and Amish communities near where I live. I will be visiting with Sam on the 25th of April to do a workshop, video and photograph session where I will be taught and instructed by Sam, to make an early rendition of a knife. Sam is well known in his community and has been featured on KET.

Sam Stoner is a master craftsman, forger and blacksmith who creates incredible knives and swords in his workshop. These fine knives can be purchased and the best way to get in touch with him is by writing to his address in Scottsville, KY. I will post the address at the end of my writing.

When making a knife, metal is forged by heating a single piece of steel and shaping the metal with a hammer or press while it is very hot.

The lovely jeweling, also known as damascening or engine turning, that is sometimes used on knives and guns is not only aesthetically pleasing but serves a utilitarian function. This jeweling process works to cut down on the internal friction by reducing the area contact from the parts to create a smooth action and end result. It greatly increases the holding capacity for lubricant on surfaces, too.

I look forward to my meeting with Knife maker, Sam Stoner and seeing what kind of knife we will create. Please follow my Blog here to stay tuned on my next story with Sam on the 25th of April!

If you would like to contact Sam he can be written at the address below:

(The moments that align) ‘Lucinda Mae, Jupiter and a Pig Named Pearl in Dusty Spirit Springs’


The moments I speak of now are carved deep within the child I once was. The breath of my soul, fearless in the path of the great mystery, I stood proud, in the place of my time; in the place of my knowing…

I am Lucinda Mae. I was born and raised in Dusty Spirit Springs; an old mining town encroached upon the forest like some large, dead shadow of a place. A large forest, abandoned places, old stone graves crumbled, dusty and sun melted in too many Midwest summers

Ole’ Grandpier Primitive Baptist church once was congregation in praise and forgiveness…

Now spider and dust and the darkness vibrate the ether.

I live with my Father, Magnus. Like his Father before him, he is a miner, woodsman, master hunter and my protector; always watching but has a suffering allowance for my independent and curious nature.

Father, lighting his pipe, sits with me on our large, southern wood porch every evening I can recall since I was a girl child. His stories weave a magic spell; lucid, hypnotic and sensual are his words that speak of the ancient gifts shared by the light and dark beings.

He speaks of the love he has for my departed Mother. Her name meant something to him I will never know deeply nor could I speak of with the finest words. I knew her as Aislinn; He called her, Angell…

I wear her dresses she made by hand, now. My favorite is the antique white slip she kept in her cedar box, wrapped in a satchel of cinnamon and coriander.

I am now 22 and Magnus, after slowly exhaling the dark scented pipe smoke, tells me “daughter, you walk in the light of your passing Mother; you favor her in the good ways I can’t be for you. Lucinda, you will find your way just fine, girl. Gentleman Caedmon sees you running tall in his fields, choosing the ripest herbs and plants for your mixin’s. He has a mighty strong fondness for you child. He might come callin’ soon for you.”

I just stare dreamy into the dusk, listening to the deep sound of Magnus and the vibrational drone of the cicada; feeling a sweet desire for the way Jupiter touches me, not the kind of ‘touchin’ you can tell Magnus about. Do we keep some of the sweetest things hidden, in a dark place for fear of losing the rich memory of intimacy or are we just afraid?

Caedmon may be a proper suitor for me, ruggedly handsome, strong and well off, with him being the largest owner of the the calcite and fluorite mines that dwell in these river towns; but my thoughts, my passion are entwined with another. Caedmon, I believe is powerfully dark. In his presence I always hide my true thoughts.

Magnus says my hair is fine and gold like a child in summer. My blue eyes are the color of a winter sky, sometimes they look darker… I am long of limb from running in all of old man Caedmon’s fields of clover and goldenrod.

My story, like others, will stand the test of time because of the combined and distinctive gifts me and my three friends Leroy Rose, Jupiter and Kane came to be in our time. I suppose I must also speak of the very large, (miniature) Pig that Leroy Rose had and so endearingly named ‘Pearl. I called her by another name I will not speak, for my Daddy would frown upon such language that he felt a southern lady must not utter. These are some of the things I also, keep hidden.

The people of our town were gifted in a strange way. Some of us had a gift they called  ‘the sight’. The townsfolk had a nickname for us, the ‘lanterns’; we were taught to use this for the betterment of all creation, by our town’s Elders. Not all had this particular gift, for there were many other gifts too; some so powerful ‘hot’, they had to be used in darkness and only the most disciplined in will and spirit were graced with. My Mother was one-

I cannot speak of these things, it is forbidden of me and grave consequences will befall my spirit if I would. I am only allowed, as Lucinda Mae, to speak of my own story and my three friends who shared this gift of knowing in our time, in our town…our secret old mining town.

Jupiter, Leroy Rose, Kane and Me had a secret that went beyond what we all shared as gifts…

Our Synfuels Patent-Cannabidiol Extraction Plant and Processes, is a Paradigm Shift in the Hemp/Agriculture Industry!

IMG_6046 Paul headshot at Mammoth Cave Forest.jpg

We are excited here at Synfuels Assets Management LLC to announce that our groundbreaking Patent, 9895404- Cannabidiol Extraction Plant Processes will be a large shift in Hemp/Agriculture industry. This process works equally as well with THC extraction and will extract any Terpenes and Alkaloid oils without any wax content!

This will take the cannabis industry out of the realm of cottage producers to the scale of agricultural industry!

This powerful system provides for the high quality extraction of an extremely bio active oil that can be used in tinctures and also is fat soluble which makes it wonderful for baked goods, etc. The oil can be used in beverages and other liquid products, too.

This is an Industrial Process that will encourage the development of large markets and bring the Cannabis industry out of the ‘cottage’ market stage that it is presently in.

The advantages of this special process are:

1.)  The process is a flow through distillation process

2.)  The extraction process is a pulse batch to increase the alkaloid oil recovery. However it can be run as a flow through to increase process throughput.

3.)  The CBD oil can undergo decarboxylation if desired during the process.

4.)  The alkaloid oil can be further purified through a number of post processing steps.

5.)  The extracted oil is very rich in terpenes and other highly active components that are naturally in the cannabis oil.

6.)  There are NO WAXES in the finished product making further processing very simple!

7.)  This process can handle fresh harvested plants directly from the field without a significant change in CBD/THC content in the oil and provide dewatering for the fiber.

8.)  Final product has a fresh, great taste, making it good for all types of ingestion.

9.)  The process capital cost per pound is extremely low when calculated on a per day basis ($51.50) where as CO2 Extraction methods can be as high as 33,000.00/lb./day

10.)  This process is fully automatic with minimum requirement for personnel.

The Inventor, Paul Baskis, is a well know national and international scientist holding several patents in waste to energy conversion and waste treatment as well as waste minimization. Paul has been involved in technology development for 30 years  . His inventions are in use in the agriculture and food processing industries. Mr. Baskis is the CEO/President of Baswood Assets Management, LLC  that manages the assets generated off of his interests in Baswood Corporation, a company that deploys waste water treatment systems in the industrial and municipal waste industry.

Paul is the CEO of Synfuels Assets Management LLC, a company that provides Licenses to companies such as Atlas, to technologies useful in the conversion of organic compounds into very valuable commodities such as fuels, chemicals and coke for the metallurgical industry and gases for producing electricity.

He has reached worldwide fame through recognition of his invention of the Thermo-De-polymerization (TDP) for which he holds over 60 patents worldwide. The Thermal De-polymerization Process has produced over 3 million gallons of high quality synthetic fuel per year and was featured in Scientific American, Discovery, National Geographic, Money Magazine and many others.

Early Town, the Carnival Lady and An Attic of Secrets



Early Town, the Carnival Lady and An Attic of Secrets

The days set slow in Early Town where shadows arrange in mysterious shapes under hazy trees of late summer.

I walk along a dry path; a dusting of cinnamon shimmer rises and settles in a traveling breeze across the field of milkweed and yarrow.

The path I travel finds its place along Gum Creek Cemetery and the house of the old carnival lady.

Time seems limpid and very still at the old wooden house. Her treasures are all within…the carnival stories told over again on porch swings during hot summer nights, only when children are dreaming. The tarnished charms, intimate letters wrapped in faded ribbon and dried lavender, dead flowers from a long ago lover, carnival posters, moth eaten lace dress slips and secrets….

These things live high in her house among the attic walls.

On moon bright midnights, broken shards of attic window glass shine on wood board floor, like geometric shaped jewels from a strange faraway place.

When the storms come dressed with the “whistling winds “as the old lady calls them, they will rattle the carnival parchment posters from yesteryear.

This sound reminds me of the frantic dying moth stuck inside a small wooden box.

I smile and ask her for a story that was new once, long moments ago.

She speaks to me “The secrets are not for sharing, they are for finding.”

We share…only yarrow tea and moments of silence….

One autumn afternoon, when the yarrow is long and milky white in the field, illumined by a hot sun, I will return to the path past Gum Creek Cemetery, all shadows and silent wildflowers…and settle upon the vine covered porch of the old carnival woman’s house.

An old envelope, showing signs of dust and time I find as I enter through the door, upon the first step of the stairs. Small and neat are the words “For You My Child, Seeker of Secrets” and inside was a clean paper and pen with a small note attached at the top…

“We are receivers of this presence, we are like secrets finding, unfolding unto the light.

The manifested thought is our creation alone. Guide it; nurture it from a place of true wonderment…

Dreams from the Wood Porch

‘Dreams From the Wood Porch’


A stirring of rust colored leaves rise ethereal with clay dust, as the girl child dances under the hazy sun of the afternoon heat.

Not yet Angel gold dipped in sin and prayer, her tinkling laughter is matched by the cicada drone that beats with hypnotic fervor.

He rocks back and forth ceremoniously on the old porch with solemn and careful watching.

The evening damp strangles and descends the smoke clouded mist from the old man’s pipe as a whippoorwill hurriedly cuts through the last lazy moment of heat from the celestial terrace.

He waits in the gathering dark for her to come in as she moves steadfast and barefoot toward the tall blistered wood porch.

Laced with secret and smiling she will lay with thought dreams bathed clean, in star shine.

‘Slippin Creek is Just a Stone’s Throw’

IMG_1152 T barefoot


I’m my Mother’s shiny girl child when she left me here

I’m the seed of love from my Father, distant watcher; proud of my growing

My Grandmother spoke to me on the last hour of her death bed; Child don’t take money for things undone and things that should not be done.

Boy, don’t you know slippin’ creek is just a stone’s throw away.

I see you lolling behind, boy-

Slow moving and strong…

I see you there summer sweat and shadow dark.

Slippin’ creek is just a stone’s throw….

As a child, my Mother told me I had the strength for making up for people’s shortcomings.

So I took off running into the sun of summer, unveiled and barefoot to feel slippin’ creek beneath me; a lithe shadow dancing just a stone’s throw.

Boy, I see your dark shadow watching just a stone’s throw away-

I see your shadow bright, hiding in the darkest corner behind that heavy hanging door.

Slippin’ creek is waiting under summer rose moon, dark scent of purple violet and mimosa, candy sweet.

Blackbird flies swift and heavy with secrets to share over slippin’ creek.

Where shadows lie still and illusions speak-








Angel Blue and Einar in Marrowbone Town

Marrowbone town is as ancient and orphic as the memory is intimate with secrets.

Light is the same at Marrowbone in the morning as it is at dusk, when the sun and star shine, upon silver sheen fog, reach the eyes.

One will find many treasures and visions among the souls of townsfolk here. You will find them waiting for you among the thorned Honey Locust trees, the sun dusted fields of thistle and vines, the river ferry whose secrets are told slowly and the abandoned places of Marrowbone town. These are the truest places when the moon is still and dreams are carried by dark wings of starlings.

Each season bears the weight of a dark sleep and rebirth called the Great Turning.

This is when the sibylline story is shared with spirit among Marrowbone townsfolk.

The story was carved deep, inside, from the dawning by the hand of the alpha light and the first warrior.

All men, women and children have the “knowing” in Marrowbone.

Old man Caedmon says to me “it was never taken from us, just forgotten”

This story is best shared through the eyes and thoughts of two special young souls in Marrowbone….Angel Blue and Einar

All townsfolk in Marrowbone live in joyful light and storm, doing what they do best…creating thought for the highest good of all.

This gift was the beginning.

The gift could never be destroyed or taken. It could only be hidden…

Angel Blue loved to form thoughts in the forests, creeks, winter moon autumns and abandoned houses.

Angel Blue was from the one before the beginning. She is silver light, deepest fire and the most potent thought creator Einar has ever known.

The dark-eyed Junco tinkles a silvery song from a high loft as it watches her presence slowly move close to old man Caedmon’s barn.

Einar is waiting, with silence, shadow clad and cedar smoke.

The shadows that envelop Einar are primal, fierce and protective.

Einar is a watcher and grand seer from the first warrior. His lineage was boldly carved in a secret storm; a watcher in the dark was his seal.

His gift as a seer was to protect Angel Blue in her time of Vision.

This bond was silent but forceful between them.

Even when she lay upon the feathered mattress, listening to the metallic whistle of the midnight train through a dreaming Marrowbone, did she feel Einar’s watching.

He is always the protector of the dream vision, like an invisible silk web shrouding her moonlit flesh.

Angel Blue and Einar walk together with moments bathed in charcoal star skies, smoke and clove scented woodlands, and abandoned places in the season of knowing.

A Loggerhead shrike glides swift through the ether of falling dusk, capturing a field mouse in its talons.

Angel Blue and Einar watch the dance with death as the Loggerhead shrike impales the mouse on a long Honey locust thorn.

Einar tells Angel Blue “The watcher knows the mystery in the living, dances close to what we promised to not remember…”

The vision will be dreamed through the season of knowing…

The vision will be passed on to you and me…
