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

    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. :D 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.

    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. :thumbup:

    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. :D

    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 !

    It feels good when someone does something nice for us, but it is an amazing feeling when someone does something nice for your kid. Good on ya Thomas!
