First of all, thanks for accepting me in this fine group. My name is Lucas Silva Calado, I'm 26 years old and I have a degree in Chemical Engineering. I have been practicing Budo for 10 years or so and last year I've started studying and trying to make japanese style blades and fittings. I was introduced to this group by Remo Nogueira, who also gave me some directions in this fine art. I hope to get as much experience as I can in this forum and make new friends.
