This is another of those "My, what a small universe this is" type
things! I carried a swiss army knife with the amazingly effective
serrated knife and used it virtually every day for 20+ years. Then,
when my son was about to get married, I went looking for a good father
to son gift for him. And naturally, I decided on giving him a
concealed deadly weapon:-) This led me to the same Smokey Mountain
knife company (and who, as you pointed out, now does have an excellent
web-site http://www.eknifeworks.com ) that you kindly recommended. And
you are so right! There are really nice people. I had found Dan a
great turquoise knife and soon after I gave it to him, I realized that
I'd like one for myself, because of it's beauty and quality
construction, and as a keepsake of him (he lives in Arkansas, and me
in the Philly area). So I called the Smokey people and found out that
they had sold out of them. But over the course of the next 1 1/2
years, they kept supplying me with leads of stores and people who may
have them. And I did eventually find one, and have carried it ever
since as the replacement to my swiss army knife (which I still do
carry in my nursing equipment bag). I guess it was this search that
first made me aware of knives and to begin appreciating "Man's first
tool" on a different level. And now I know first hand what Gregji sees
in the Chris Reeves, Benchmade autos, and balisongs knives he is
interested in, and the understanding Sri Jason has of the craftmanship
involved in their making. Similarly, since seeing Kill Bill 1 this
weekend, I can see why Jason's son is into swords, and that the
quality of sword construction it demonstrated verified in a way the
supposition that "knives can be consciousness evolving objects".
Peace and blessings,
PS: Seeing the popularity and political power of the NRA, I have no
doubt that gun shows have an enormous and enthusiastic turnout.
