Ishpeming – July 1, 2011 – Record crowds attended this year and numerous families went downtown Ishpeming earlier in the day. Dan and Debra Choszczyk of Champion had a booth on main street. They use reclaimed steel to make blades, knives, survival knives, axes, and letter openers. Nothing is manufactured with new materials just recycled items.
Black River Blades uses old ice skate blades, gun barrels, and even Harley Davidson pipe. All items are made from reclaimed steel. Black River Blades even fires up a portable forge at area festivals and create blades as people watch.
I found this booth very amusing and intriguing. Black River can be reached at 906-631-7477 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
