Most of you know ARKM's long history with the IRA. Not only has ARKM had a long history of productions but he's also had some groundbreaking innovations to the hobby. From the first ever razor blade plugs, to perfecting the art of salt water etching on saber hilts, to custom sabers and parts, these are just a few of the things ARKM has done in the past.
ARKM has also served as moderator for several years as well.
It was always a pleasure to work with ARKM as mod and he's always been a valued member of the IRA. And now it's my pleasure to reinstate him in the Imperial Armory.
I have a saber in mind that when it get's made (which may be a very long time from now), will be the ultimate in etched hilts, at least to me (that's right, I said it!). Etching/engraving from top to bottom. It will be my magnum opus... and yet will probably still pale in comparison to some of the awesome hilts I've seen here, lol.
I don't offer etching and have no plans do so. It's one of those things that has a high margin for error (at least for aluminum) and when it goes wrong, the part is ruined. Too nerve wracking to do on other people's saber parts.
ARKM: Happy birthday rblscm!

ARKM: Happy eclipsemageddon day! I live in Oregon within the path of totality. The sun should be fully eclipsed here at 10:19am PDT.

ARKM: If I don't get super powers from this, I'm going to be very disappointed. Crap! I'm going to be very disappointed.

ARKM: The eclipse was cool. It got really dark during totality. I don't think I got any super powers though... wait. I may have x-ray vision... I can see through my retina.
