Dealer " Rep " Days at SMKW, Sevierville, Tennessee. October 17 - 19

I had the good fortune, last week end, to spend most of three solid days at cutlery mecca - Smokey Mountain Knife Works.  Saying it was an educational and fun week end would be classed as a dramatic understatement,   Taking three days off from the shop was a welcome change of pace.  One pass through the aisles of the 100,000 retail space and you may find your head spinning.  As I stood behind the sales counter I definitely noticed that glazed look on many of the faces filing by - especially…

Donnie & Jan will not be going to Ohio

As much as I hate this, we will not be going on to Ohio from here.  Something has come up at home and we need to be in Tampa on Wed.  With my health a trip back to Tampa and then up to Ohio is just not going to be possible.

If the trip home were not absolutely necessary, I would cancel it but alas it is not something I can pass on.  I apologize to all that are going, there are so many I wanted to meet.  There is another one in April and I have every intention of making it there if I…

Talking about the knives he had own and about how to be careful with them as he had some scars to show how easily accidents happen, he told me he, as a little boy, got a knife from a British commando at the end of WWII when Eindhoven was liberated. It was used heavily and the tip was broken off and…
