    I got something a lot better than a free knife from Thomas W


    ADVERTISEMENT
    I got to watch Thomas give my boy a free knife this morning. Then, I got to see my son swell with pride as he walked around Blade Show with a new Kershaw 3650 (Volt II) clipped in his pocket.

    Thomas, my many thanks for this gift. I had a lot of fun this morning, finally getting to walk the show floor and put faces with names. You were on my short list of folks I wanted to meet. I'm glad you were in the booth when we came by. Honestly, I had planned to ask to see the 0777. Then, before you realized who I was, I was going to ask why the Microtech versions were so much cheaper. I didn't have the heart, but I hear Moose pulled a similar stunt.

    Anyway, you helped make the show for me, and I wanted to stop in and express my appreciation. I forgot to take a picture at Blade, and my children and wife went down to visit relatives in Alabama. But I'll try to get a shot of my son with his new knife when he gets back.


    My biscuit would love for you to join the Fans of Becker Knives Group and the Fans of Ka-Bar Knives Group.

    That is really cool. I can imagine your son beaming all the way home. What a story he'll share some day about his early experience with Kershaw.

    Yeah, the Mini Guyon was beaming, and he had every right to be.

    Great show, and T Dubz is in a class above.

    Very cool story. I was by the Kershaw/ZT booth about 5 times on Saturday. Thomas was only there once out of those 5 times and he looked busy so I didn't bother pestering him.

    That is awesome. I am so happy for your boy. I bet you will never forget that moment. And that is something you two will be able to share for ever.

    Thomas has a lot of class behind that grouchiness, underneath that drunken, violent,gambling, leader of organized crime gangs persona he shows the world.

    Actually, one of those descriptors is correct. Guess which one.

    Hopefully your son will keep the knife and sporting goods interest going on down to his kids, and grand kids etc. That's a good thing IMO.

    Thanks Thomas !

    Awesome to hear but not surprising in the least bit.

    I got a little misty-eyed there.

    Glad your son had this experience ... and sorry I couldn't attend Blade this year to say "hi."
