The Knives Will Come Out at Østgarðr Commons

You are hereby invited to bring your choice of blade to this Friday’s provincial commons meeting — knives, axes, scissors, chisels, and the like — and then hone it to a razor-sharp edge as part of our informal blade-sharpening workshop!

(As a reminder, Commons will be on October 18 starting at 7:00 at our usual location on the Upper West Side of Manhattan.)

I am not a master sharpener, just an enthusiastic amateur — if someone shows up who knows more than I do, I’d love to learn more from them — but I have had decent success in sharpening our kitchen knives, household scissors, and wood-working tools.

I will be bringing my wet stone grinding wheel, a flat polishing stone, a couple of kinds of sharpening steels, and a leather strop. (If anyone has any sharpening gear of their own they’d like to show off, bring it along!)

TL/DR: Bring some dull knives or scissors to Commons on Friday and let’s see if we can’t get ‘em sharpened up for you!

(* Please do not deploy live steel during the business meeting.)

— Mathghamhain

October Provincial Commons

Greetings All,

The next Provincial Commons will be this coming Friday, October 18, in Manhattan.

We have some important things to discuss: the upcoming Provincial officer elections and Twelfth Night. All officers are encouraged to attend and the general populace is welcome as well. 

For the new people we’ve met at the recent demos, this is a good way to meet the provincial and local officers.

Socializing will start at 7pm, with the meeting being called to order at 8pm. Pizza will be available, and participants may bring drinks or desserts.

The following Provincial Officer positions are up for election:  Seneschal, Herald, Minister of Lists (currently vacant), Webminister, Historian, and Fencing Marshal.  Letters of Intent are due in as soon as possible to the Viceroy and Vicereine, and myself.  We would then post these to officer mailing list and ask the candidates to speak to the officers and populace at the Provincial Commons in November.   If you have any questions about these positions, please speak with the current officer, the Viceregents, or me. 

In Service,
Alexander (Alec) MacLachlan
