I'm Peter Reinhart! Ask Me Anything! Monday, February 15, 2016 7:00-8:00 pm EST

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

Ask Me Anything New Forum Feature

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

      I'm thinking it's a medieval back scratcher.

        It looks like a crude but effective weapon.

                  Has to be some sort of spiked mace, so in a sense, it is a meat tenderiser. Those old tyme bastards were pretty hard core with their weapons.

                    Well done.
                    Its a knobkerrie used in the trenches in WW1, you would sneak into the enemy trenches and use the knobkerrie to persuade your opponent to give you his lapel colours so you could see who you were fighting.

                    This one is a genuine Australian one, the timber is Kaurri pine and the strap is off a gas mask.

                      Love your choice of words - "persuade your opponent"

                      Just curious, have you had it swabbed for DNA or traces of.....blood? Would certainly add to its provenance if you had evidence of battle use. I know, gruesome thought, but it is done all the time with war artifacts.

                        I havent had it swabbed, its been looked at by a curator of a military museum and deemed genuine.
                        I will donate it to the Canberra war museum in the future.

                          Good onya, mate. As cool as these things are to own, they do have a story to tell. Far too many people these days don't know much about history (its really terrible here in the US). Any efforts to educate the masses are greatly needed, history museums are #1 in my book.
                          Thanks for sharing these cool finds.
