    This summer turned into a wonderful adventure; 'our' "arkansaw hunter" caused me to elvaluate some of my thinking with knives :)
    At the NRA convention here in the spring; KA-Bar from New York; brought some ware to sell; me KA-BAR 1211; would have gotten some for my friends had I been better prepared {dagnabit}

    I set a time aside to visit "New Graham Knives" in Bluefield Virginia; I haven't been their before! {as it turned out; same city as West Virginia: interesting}

    These folk openly advertised the "Mora" knives; {arkansaw hunter recommend} I knew I wanted 1 or more
    What a wonderful shop these folks have; bright; airy; clean; with many brands to choose from; a bit of knife heaven. I found the 'Mora' as 'ah' described. picked out some; found a couple of others for my son

    Leaving their; I headed for Knoxville, Tenn to meet ''MrsS, MrS" "gng members"; wow weee; what wonderful folks. {will come back soon}:)
    MrS; turned me on to a Fire Burger; and then a ''Hot" hot pepper; {me made the wall of FLAME} wow

    Before; we traveled to "Smoky Mountain Knife Works" a knife store outta this world; dang dang dang;
    That first evening I spent about 2.5 hours looking slobbering; and hadn't made a dent in this place;
    I started finding ''yumm'' and more 'yum' that I couldn't live without;
    They too carry the Mora;
    I ended up with 20 something knives;7-8 hours shopping; some for my son; and friends; all an adventure unto itself.

    What I learned; don't really know; what I ended up with; a wonderfun outing
    Should you have the time; these two Stores are fun; Leave all money at home haha

    The following week; I left for Florida; and found yet another knife; wow weee; I should have something to cut watermellons with now. Friday this week; haha; I'm going to pickup a tomatoe cutting knife. Will have some thoughts after the purchase haha:)

    I have pictures of many of the findings, wow weee. Stuck one in the truck for those times of need, fishing tackle box now has its own, for the 3 day bag, ''Seven's" idea, going to attach a couple to it. {yep; building a ''Seven" bag}:)

    The point to my visits; I learn from each of you; I value your input, your knowledge, your understandings, your laughter

    "Arkansaw Hunter" will forever be with me, his guidance led me to some 'Mora' knives. They will be my daily reminders.
