Re: Fake Hubertus

Was the reference to recent outsourcing to Czech Republic or to Slovakia?

Re: New Frank B swing Guard??

I think the horn on that one is really nice, but I don't care for the tactical look of the blade. Just call me a traditionalist when it comes to Italian swing guards.

Re: Cool little OTF

Like button_man, I never had a FB account. I do understand that there are apparently some meaningful switchblade discussions that go on there, but I guess I have to read about them second-hand.

Re: 17cm Kris Rosco

Thom - that one looks superb. Sorry, can't help with the date, other than the obvious. My guess is that the bolsters looking like brass is just due to the lighting - correct?

Somehow I missed the statement about the rams horn scales. Beautiful execution of rams horn!

Girl Scout Thin Mints - hard narcotics disguised as cookies

My grand niece is a Girl Scout in Maryland. She takes her cookie sales seriously and my wife orders a bunch and has them shipped. Included in the package are Thin Mints. I try to eat ONE Thin Mint and it doesn't come even close to ending up that way. Anyone else have this problem?

This is an example on 2 fronts: As long as I have been collecting Bill has been generous with his time, freely willing to share his expertise with anyone who as...

Re: Covid shot

My recommendation is to be proactive and aggressive about getting your appointment. Here is my example. My wife watches the newsfeeds and noticed one Tuesday that the county dept of health was opening some appointments and would begin scheduling them at 5:00PM that day. The State had moved to the ne...

Re: Covid shot

Thanks for the article Allen. This point was encouraging:
Side effects are just a sign that protection is kicking in as it should
