Kaylin and I, along with my grandson, Nik, and son-in-law, Matt, made the 5 hour drive up to the Dalton show, this past weekend.

While the biggest topic of conversation was Jan's not being able to come, we still had a great time.  As always, I enjoy seeking out other iKC members and sponsors; special shout out to Ken and Roger, of Blue Creek; Gina, from Smith's; Gary Kennedy, Mark Zalesky, from Knife World;  and Ryan Daniels. Not to be left out, Bruce Voyles, the "Host"  for the day.

While I didn't have any particular knives that I was looking for, and having checked all the usual tables, I concentrated on the "Junk Bins". You know the ones I'm talking about, they're common at the shows.  Dealer will toss stock into a bin marked, usually, $5.00; $10.00; to as much as $15.00.  These are where I spent my meager amount of cash on.

 I also picked up a 6inch Ezy-Lap diamond sharpener.

I Didn't go broke, but I was extremely happy with what I found.

The Piggyback came in today.

Happy to add it alongside the ones I picked up at Dalton.

EDCing the Remora neck knife ever since we got home.  Really liking it, so far.  Ordered a Ka-Bar "Piggyback", on Tuesday, to try out also. 

Debating doing a paracord wrap on the skeleton.  Might go with lesather, to make it look more like a Ka-Bar should.

Doing some research on Paracord wrap, for the Ka-Bar neckers and stumbled across this old thread in BF.. .

Thought I'd share.

What a great haul!  AND you didn't go broke!  I don't think I'd have been able to resist that Sasquatch tool either.  Not to mention all those skeleton knives, which I've also been drawn to as of late.  And time with the family to boot -- priceless...

Forgot this one.

Not a knife, guess it's a multi tool...

Sasquatch tool.

I just thought it was odd enough for me to get.

I thought it was kinda cool, too, Steve.
