SMOKY MOUNTAIN KNIFE WORKS MEMORIES

This group began as we followed Knives Live together and had some fun.  I have made the choice for it to remain as a place to put up pics of members trips, deals, and SMKW discussions

It was really just a quick trip as my dropped my daughter off (a very long story.)  In the process we were invited on the base and got to see a C-17 Galaxy on the flight line (but was forbidden to take photos by Base Security)     That will have to wait until the the summer or fall when we head out to Lewis/McCord in Tacoma WA.  WAs only on base for about an hour.  My daughter, who is still there has promised to send me some better pics of the base.    The two below are of a C141, one of the jets I jumped out of back in my youth.

C17 from a distance.  A I said no photos could be taken on the flight line.

Wow, Toby, You came within 90 miles of where I live. Altus is around 80 miles south of where I live.

Oh Tobias, I can relate to the just sigh heavy as you drive past.  I hate when you realize something is on the way but time and $ are short

Yes, getting together with folks you only met on the internet  is great, you still  have that great thing in common. We all love knives!

Last year was the first time we went to Shepherd Hills for their getogether in Sept. Fantastic time! The members only dinner they had the night before was quite the shin dig. Had a super time and got to meet people I only new on the Forums! That was our first time there also. Had been to SMKW before.

I have been to SMKW several times but never to Shepherd Hills.  Hope to rectify that someday.

 

Comment by Steve Hanner on January 19, 2015 at 11:55

And Shepherd Hills is about 3 1/2 hours west of me. Probably good because I would do my best to work there! Just love those folks  and just have not been for many years. Hope to change that someday and see SMKW  as well as a few others.

Josh,Jay and Tony are still with SMKW and doing fine, last I heard.  Steve Koontz and Travis Ferguson are  with Bud's Guns and Ammo at a store right next to SMKW.  If you're in Sevierville, it's just one stop to see both stores. I hope to get back down there soon.

This past week-end, I had to drive my daughter from Chicago to Altus AFB in Altus OK.  Had I known that that the Shepherd Hills Factory outlet was at the mid point on my road trip I would've planned accordingly.  Beign on a tight schedule and having no spare cash on me, all I could do is sigh heavily as passed by all those tempting bulletin boards.    Incidentally if you're heading west on I-44  exit 29 is a total let down.   Exit 8, however will be much better.  Don't believe the hype.  Shepherd Hills is in Lebanon, MO.,  off I-44 W exit 127.  They also have a store in Branson.  Nest time, I'll plan ahead!

I liked and miss Knives Live too.  Josh was my favorite too but I liked Jay and Tony too.  I got to meet all three of them when I visited SMKW last.  Josh gave me a tour of the whole facility including the TV studio.

My favorite Josh story is his tendency to cut himself while showing knives.  But I did him one (actually two) better.  I recently cut myself with three different blades of the same knife at the same time.  It was a Rough Rider six blade stockman.  I was opening all six blades to take a picture.  It slipped and three of the blades cut me!  I bet Josh never accomplished that!  LOL
