    i bought myself a new toy too...

    custom ordered knife from a guy by the name of B. Goode... I made a sheath for one of these knives and had to get one. 2 year waiting list and a price that made my jaw drop, but i got it in about 3 or 4 months and I even got to send him the wood to make the grips.... same block of wood that i made my revolver grips out of - matches nicely.

    Curly narra wood.

    Brian hand selects the grain of the metal for cutting his own knife blanks, teats the metal, etc etc etc....
    The blade is acid etched to give it the dark color.

    Hes stress tested his blade designs by bending them to braking point, and using them to cut holes out of metal folding chairs. Tough Stuff.

    I'm in. The bike needs a new rear tire (arriving on Jan 4th) and new front brake, but I will make it up in the bravery/stupidity department. If I die I will do it riding, not in an arm chair :D

    Ripper- after a lengthy discussion last night over beers, we decided that there will be 3 of us trailering from Tulsa. Tomski74, JumpJet, and I will be headed over to your place for some grub.

    I'm psyched and ready for a ride.

    If I can get away from my remodel project, I will meet you guys at Gruber. I'd like to get the KLR out and get it dirty. It's way too clean right now.:D

    Yep, home remodel. I got rid of the "honey" a little over 3 years ago:clap
    So I just have to convince the g/f that riding takes precedence over staying out late with her:zilla
