A Gift From The Brits

The "paralyzed" student at 10:00 must have been inspired by one we had at Brierley Hill, an older guy who dreaded working in the medium. Why he was there was anyone's guess.

Malcolm Andrews? Yes, though he was always called Andy Malcolm. Did you do a hitch there?

He came out of the factories, so he could make anything you want, just so long as you could show him a design to work from. I don't think he ever made anything from his own imagination. Some of the demo videos may seem less than impressive because he usually would have students assist, and would roll with whatever he had to work with. He also liked to talk a lot, as you can see.

I'll always remember him as having one hand on the pipe and one hand constantly hitching up his pants. He put me up at his home my first night in Brierley Hill, and I introduced him to duty-free Wild Turkey 101. Good times.

A few videos here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P2uKxOhGr_o (He made a pair of much more ornate swords than this one for one of the Royals when I was there.)
