I hope you are having a great time at Blade. Come back safe and sound when you're done making a fortune.

Second the motion.

Will report if I see he made it out alive.

Shadowflyer should see him there.

Sources tell me Mick and his boys had a blade stolen off their table. Maybe the BladeMaster can get in a little Martyr Makin' while he's there.

AM,
You're killing me brother. I never thought you'd be like that.

Just got off shadowflyer's phone with him and Mr. Harsey at Blade.

They were in the Chris Reeve booth and it sounded like a real party.

shadowflyer said that he just saw Ernie Emerson as well.

Everyone seemed to be doing well, though I think Mr. Harsey mentioned that he was a bit thirsty.

Little early in the day for me, but to each his own.

AAR Blade 2004

The 2 hrs I got to spend at Blade were awesome. I had to cut short the visit due to some prior engangements with family. All in all it was an absolute delight to meet Mr Harsey and to speak with him. What a great American and Patriot he is and a true artisan with the blades. I was saddened by the fact that I did not come out with any knives, but I did return with a great story to tell about meeting Bill Harsey and Ernie Emerson. Emerson Knives had a keg in there booth that tapped off at 11 am....too bad I couldn't stay longer, would have been having a few Adult beverages courtesy of Mr Emerson. Mr Harsey, please tell Mrs.Reeve that it was a pleasure meeting her and I really appreciate the hospitality shown to me by the whole CRK family.

As always it was a pleasure Sir (TR) talking to you. I am saving up for one of the Sebenza's for a collectors item to go in My gun safe here.

Side Note: I got to hold one of only 4 Applegate-Fairbairn Knives to be made in S-30V steel, what a work of art. TR I am jealous Sir.


Pictures to follow.....

Mr Harsey told me the "kids" (Strider and crew) kept him up too late last night as they were howling till the sun came up.
