Hey Charles, sure appreciate the kind greeting. I've learned alot from reading various forum posts over the years, but never participated. Enjoyed what I'd been seeing here, and I look forward to being part of the conversation. Take care, Jim

Thanks very much. I confess I am not a collector but a direct descendant of Samuel Bell, and I would like to ask Mark about some of the biographical info he has. This was the only way I could figure out to reach him. I am impressed by the warm welcome I have received!

The Second Amendment

Posted on August 23, 2015 at 3:04 8 Comments

  1. The Second Amendment of the United States Constitution reads: "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."

What does that mean?  Well let us examine it and see.  It is a fairly simple and short statement.  It has two clauses or sections.  The second states that a particular right of…

I did buy knives at SMKW.

This one is a Rough Rider Mushroom knife RR1400.  (The nation is now safe.  If that mushroom that came up in my yard was just a scout for a full scale invasion, I now have the means to beat it back!)

 

I am going to save this wooden Case knife kit until my grandson, Danny, is old enough to help me put it together.  May…

My visit to SMKW wouldn't have been complete without meeting the Knives Live guys.

Here is Josh and me in the Knives Live studio.  (It's a little bigger than a two holer.  I believe you could fit a three holer in it!)

 

And here is Jay.  (Like his T shirt!)…
