    Had a grand time at Brother Fisk's Mini Show, Hog Hunt and Piggy Pilates Class......Drove over to see Ryan and Christine Wilson on the way......Had a tour of the new Parts of the mfg area.....WoW.....Lovely lunch and a ride in Ryans new Shelby Mustang.....WHOOSH.......Got a Quick tune up on th AR and headed over to spend the evening with Phil and Lola Gibbs.....Great Time, as always and had a few moments with AG and Goldie Russell......Always Good........

    Two days of fruitless hog hunting near Nasville, AR.....With some really great people, cooked a little chili, ate some really tasty David Smith Cactus Soup(think ver tasty ArkanaTex minestrone without the pasta) heard a few lies, told a few lies....Great Time......Jerry has an invitational mini show every year both Knifemakers and guests have to get the call from the Great One....I felt very priveleged as I am neither a high dollar collector or serious artiste working in metal and exotics......Saw some SERIOUSLY intriguing blades...... Most were of museum quality and all were not only beautiful but serious blades capable of serious work...l. Most collectors of blades this incredible are NOT anxious to take them out and prove teir capabilities so Jerry and JR Cook have a little cutting Rodeo and let the guys use a piece of fine art that cuts like a screaming witch to compete.....Too much fun.....

    Jerry and his lovely Wife, Bob offerred overwhelming hospitality......Great food , great knives , great company.......Good Times......Thanks, Mr. Jerry.......

    Is Jerry married to someone named Bob, or am I just reading that wrong?

    -edit- you'll have to forgive me; I just got done doing some grammar tutoring today...

    Hey. Crimson....

    Bro Fisk is a seriously twisted human being......"Bob" is definitely female and puts up with a lot.......

    Good to know. Was unsure about that, because I'd just gotten done teaching a lesson in which my student learned that the ACT (standardized test) actually tests students on gender of pronouns (ex: Colleen realized he should have proofread his test before submitting them)...

    I also would love to see some pictures. Sounds like a lot of fun!

    And for the record, I'd love to see a presentation quality Becker...

    Knives, guns, Bacon hunting and a Shelby. I can't think of anything else you could want. You had beer right?

    We took some time off after the show. Ethan like to wore us out. I went back to the pig camp locked the gates and did not come out for 8 days. I had a good time. Hunted, fished, played with knives while clearing up for a bow stand. Life was good there for awhile.

    The knife shown is the one that is my personal use bowie for this year. By the way I abuse my personal knives all during the year to see what they will and won't do.
    The close up with my snake pistol is just so you have a better idea of the guard and blade pattern. Fossil Walrus ivory handle.
    We had a good time and just now getting back to the computer.

    Dang it I was trying to post from my new flickr site but cannot figure out how to post the knife photos. I will try again tomorrow.
