Victorinox 2011 consecutive lies? Belive it or leave it :)

Nothing special.
Just a guy that likes to keep his hands and mind busy.

Hey man...thanks for the friend request...of course I accepted! As for sending private messages, this is just fine - but if you truely want to send a private message - use the iKC email - upper right hand corner of your page in the area of your name, sign out, Fried requests, etc...

I wanted to start a formal stand-alone CFK group, but I could not accurately gauge  if it would be accepted or not - so I started the it as a sub-group in the Box Full of Knives Box of Knives. I'm glad i did - as I commented to Lead Left Knife Guy , I seem to be the only one playing in that sand box at the moment, and I'm not sure my ego could manage no one join a group!  LoL!

Right now it looks like it's just my thread....but if you add a post to it, then it will be as it is intended - a place to appreciate the CFK/iPAC brand.
