• Spring cleaning sale: I've reduced prices on the BladeForums.com Logo Tshirts and PVC patches to move these out of here! We're down to sizes Large & XL on the shirts, but have plenty of every colorway left on the patches. Get them before they are gone! https://www.bladeforums.com/help/bfcmerch/
  • The search engine is not working correctly. We are aware of the problem and are working on a solution. Thank you for your patience.
  • I've implemented new password tools to try and cut down on the number of people getting their profiles compromised by reusing the same passwords that they have used elsewhere. If you are using a password that has been exposed in a data breach and is listed on haveibeenpwned.com you will get a notification to change it the next time you log in. When you choose a new password it will show you the strength; you will need a "Medium" strength or higher password for here, 8 characters or more in length.

    Thanks for your support!

Well, today I bit the bullet, and drove 1/2 hour to cross into the USA! Once there I cleaned out my PO box, and drove straight back home, because Canadian Rules say that if you leave the country, you must self quarantine for two weeks upon your return, to make sure you don't bring any viruses back to your family and friends!
They are precious to me, so I would do nothing else!!:cool:

So, to the rewarding part; View attachment 1457834 I picked up 23 knives!! 13 of them are BF knives for our Canadian Bretheren, and 10 are for me!! Some are gifts, and some are purchases, and I will post mine over a few following posts!, The BFs I will mail out to my fellow Canadians over the next couple of days, with the help of my wife and my daughter!!
See you here soon!!:D

Thank-you very much Waynorth! That is a sacrifice rather than just a service you are performing for us. Extremely generous of your personal liberties.

A fine gift from kamagong kamagong , this French Marjacq is a beautifully finished, and sharp, friction jack (ala Opinel) with a beautiful "flame" running through the pile side!!:cool: Thanks Christian!!:thumbsup:
Kamagong translates to the name of an Ebony wood - is it the same wood, I wonder??:D Beautiful either way!! Marjacq 1.jpg Marjacq 2.jpg

It's weirding me out a bit reading the names of all the local communities located near me, lol.
