    There were some violent confrontations at times mostly due to arguments over who got the first slice of pizza:

    Come on Tango, where are the pics? Scott's inventory was depleted to nothing after you left.

    I hate I missed it, but I got to hang out with this fellow yesterday. It's hard to complain about learning from him.

    Is that a Gibson blade DJ Jr. is holding?

    Guys thank you all so much for coming! It was a good time but as we do this each year we learn and hope to make next year better. I will get some pics up soon. I had multiple people taking photos for me and I should have them all coming to me this afternoon!

    Made a heck of a haul from USA Made Blade this past weekend. Thank you Lord for a wife that has a great job and the fact that Whitty doesn't have a camera system or very good inventory shrinkage system.
    Couple Hinderers. Whitty anodized my ZT with a purple camo pattern. Got a really cool custom beard comb from TM Hunt and a gentleman's pocket sheath and knife from Backwoods. A new Flexx Strop and about 5-10 pounds from all the good eats.

    That is great. Where did you train?

    That is Tangomike's Gibson.

    It was a great time and it's so nice to talk to the knife makers and see what they're like and they're take on the knives they make. I usually forget pics.

    I actually went down to James's residence to interview for an upcoming article. We spent about 3 hours discussing smithing, carving, primitive skills, and of course fire starting. Outside of a great conversation for the interview I learned a lot just from picking his brain.

    After seeing his knives in mass I know I'll soon be adding a custom Gibson to my stable of blades.

    Thank the wife for the pics. Will try to get a few more up. Allen did some outstanding kydex work on the M-18, 63 Chopper, Wolf Creek Forge Striker Knife, and some others. Not sure that I showed them to you but will post 'em up when I can.
