Dave Catoe is known locally as the original organizer for “The Big Damn Shindig”, a Browncoat Reunion held at the Naro in Norfolk Virginia. He was also instrumental in bringing Mikey Mason into our fold.
Dave is also an experienced bladesmith, based out of Norfolk and recently was a finalist on Forged In Fire on the History Channel. He will be presenting a panel on “The Hand Forged Blade” on Saturday at the con. He will be bringing various blades, will show a DVD on how blades are forged and answer any questions that might arise. For “Safety Concerns”, he will not bring anything sharp nor will he be forging on the premises.
