Who's JDL ?

Post by Bob Rebbec » Mon Feb 11, 2019 2:36 am

I know I asked YEARS ago on a different venue, I think it was Mr. DeShivs that answered. I forgot. Who's JDL. I've two well made Ka-Bar Grizzly style switchblades I bought at the big Chicago show, I think in the early '90s. They are stamped on the blade tang JDL. what can anyone tell me about him?
I was at the Gator Show last weekend. No one I asked there knew.
