A look at the Kabar Hobo Slide Apart Knife

the Kabar HOBO, the Complete Slide-Apart Outdoor dining kit.

Despite their marketing I mainly used the knife indoors eating a variety…

The 2015 DKE (Dutch Knife Exhibition) and my personal experience this year.

So this past saturday we had the DKE. And unlike some previous years where I was able to take LOT's of pictures and write commentairy for them.

This year I didn't get around to that at all. But let me tell you about the show from the perspective of a fairly novice maker. (This was only my 3rd show attending as a maker)

At 6:30am a friend of mine came to pick me up. The guy is one of my closest friends and although we sometimes don't talk to each other for weeks…

Yard Sale Finds!

Thought I would put this on my blog page, I'm still struggling a little with the format of this forum, so I thought I would post today's collection of booty here. The little "city" next door, (Morro Bay, Ca; pop 10,000), is having their annual "Community Yard Sale" weekend, and here is what I scored today. The highlight was a Camillus USA nautical knife, jigged brown bone handle, no dents, scratches, very sharp main blade, and a beautiful patina. I'll be posting a photo of that on Tobias'…

Gentlemen's knives by Stefan Schmalhaus .

As I guess a lot of folks will have seen that Stefan brought out a knife book, last year I think . The problem for most of us is that it is only available in German . In this link a fellow knife reviewer MrDagon007 review's the book and presents a selection of the knives. I can say that I have enjoyed the video a lot and of course it is in English !…

Buck 119 Brahma vs. Ka-Bar USMC vs Buck 119 Special

I was torn between just posting the picture or adding a description of what the picture was about, so I figured why miss an opportunity to wax poetic over pretty sharp things?

The new Buck 119 Brahma that was just announced at SHOT Show 2015 has been much anticipated among Buck fixed blade collectors and stacked leather blade aficionado’s.  Comparisons to the classic Ka-Bar USMC are inevitable.  This photo shows the Ka-Bar USMC on top, the Buck 119 Brahma in the middle, and a Buck 119…

Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse (04-04-2015)

I attempted to watch the blood moon lunar eclipse from my vantage point just south of Kansas City. Saw the full moon, 3/4 moon, 1/4 moon, and just a sliver of the moon before daylight beamed. Darn, I missed the 4-minute blood moon stage. Oh well, next time maybe. But I did enjoy some invigorating chat time with a couple of friends of mine!

Good day all.....

Kansas Concealed Weappons Passed

TOPEKA – Gov. Sam Brownback is preparing to sign a bill allowing Kansas residents to carry concealed firearms without a permit.

The Republican governor’s office set the Statehouse signing ceremony for Thursday. Legislators approved the measure last week, and the new law would take effect July 1.

The National Rifle Association says Kansas will become the fifth state to allow concealed carry without a permit everywhere.

Kansas still would issue permits for gun owners who…
