Does that mean that you accept the challenge?
Local Fire department honoring the 383 firefighters who died in 9/11
Found a stash of orange zipties while I was cleaning up my side of the bedroom!￼ Gotta coordinate, ya know?
Your pooch looks skeptical of their use!
That's about par for the course
I wonder how much certain dates impact other generations, if they noticed them for years after. They had to to, right?
It seems crazy that it's been 18 years but I still remember every sight, sound, and smell of that day. I was on a field training exercise and me and my best friend hit the motherlode. We hit the command Humvee of the OpFor battalion and they were just sitting in front of the radio stunned.
We got called to muster for the CO to talk us, he seemed so certain then. Poor guy couldn't have been 30 yrs old but had to manage us numbnuts.
Then we got bottled up for a year before we got cut loose on someone. It's easy to say the war wasn't fought for good reason but I think people like to forget how frothing mad we were to knock somebody in the teeth after taking a hit like that. Looking back, it was silly, but at the time? Patchouli slinging pacifists were howling.
Anyways, I try and take 9-11 off. It's a holy day to me, not a holiday. A day to do whatever I feel appropriate, cause that's what we're all about.
Cut myself on a knife I made with my own 2 hands.
Make a pie? Homemade crust, first time for both?
Dicking around with a knife with a questionable heat treat and worse design? Yes please.
I hope you all had a wonderful day.
the look is crude, but the design seems pretty solid
'silly' pretty much defines our era. If dead lemmings could talk, what would they say?
PSA for those folks who are looking for EDC2s with burlap handle scales (buffed or unbuffed):
To the best of my recollection, no EDC2 came from CPK with burlap handle scales! The burlap was offered on the EDC3 when the EDC3 was in production and I can tell from experience that EDC2 & EDC3 handle scales are completely interchangeable (no thickness differences as far as I know like there were between EDC1 and EDC2 scales).
JJ was fortunate to locate a set because there was an EDC3 offered with extra set of unbuffed burlap scales, but if you must have an EDC2 assembled and tuned by Jo's own expert hands at the source, you are probably SOL!
That LC with antique micarta @aquatimer has! Good night, what an opportunity to scoop up a great blade! Pretty rare bird there.
I have been fighting the temptation to buy that LC all day ... I keep telling myself I don't need it ... but damn I sure do want it ...
and yes thanks to a couple of the good CPK forum folks giving me a heads up I FINALLY got ahold of a set of unbuffed burlap for my EDC2 ...
I'm not sure if they were an option on any of the regular EDC2 or EDC3 sales but I know they were gone very shortly after the EDC pattern was retired.
I've come to terms with the fact that we never went to the moon and that NASA is full of shit.
Username checks out
Sadly, Timmy, you are mistaken. I’ve been to the moon. There are even Cape Buffalo there. Mike
Wow. Even the buffalo are lying to us. WHAT NOW?

The fun Friday Buckeye Burl made it
My Goodness it is so bad ass! Its absolute perfection
Random thought: we are going to start "the league of geriatric knife makers". Our motto will be: forgetful, confused, concussed, constipated and forgetful.

you forgot herniated
Old guy turns to the lady in the bar: "So tell me, do I come here often?"
