    Ha it’s the closet in my gun room. Pretty good sized. That’s part of it, the other side has the katanas & swords. The real boo ya is the gun collection but I’m too nervous to post any of that online. This is already way above my normalness of sharing personal things, but I’m trying.

    Thank you for your service. My son was army, 2nd armored. Here’s a picture. He staged out of Ft Polk. I was born in Baton Rouge…

    Thank you and thanks for your son’s service as well!! I do NOT miss riding in the military Humvees!! Road in a civilian version years ago and like night and day of course. Military don’t care about no comfort! How did a good ole Louisiana baw end up in Oregon if you don’t mind me asking? Don’t have to be specific in details as trust me I am usually VERY private. Sorry on the request to do individual knife reviews, that’s just not me. I will sound like an idiot, well some may say I do anyway…..nice chatting with ya…..:hattip:

    I have travelled all over this world of ours, but final resting place looks to be Louisiana for the foreseeable future. It’s not my actual dream place but life also can dictate your outcome. Life gives us all different paths…..

    Love the huge pepper btw. Wish I had the skills and equipment/forge to make my own blades/knives. I watch and enjoy the History channel show “Forged in Fire”, do you all that follow this thread watch that show too?

    I’ve watched it but hate the clowns. I know the guy that says “it will kill” is a legit bad ass, but I want to harm somebody when I hear that cheesy chit.

    That’s a Hungarian goat horn pepper.
    Yeah, I love watching the show. Like all ‘reality’ shows, there’s a lot that isn’t quite real, but it’s definitely entertaining.

    He is actually saying, "It will KEAL"; which is an acronym for 'Keep Everyone ALive'.... This acronym is used in his seminars and within his training environments as a means of motivating and reassuring those he is training/mentoring that the weapon or technique being utilized will do as it's intended (prevent you or those you love from being mortally wounded/killed) and not fail you when the chips are down and you're defending your life or the lives of those around you.

    :cheers:

    I’m not the brightest man out there I will admit to, but surprisingly I knew that. I have 2 uncles that I am very close to & grew up with (when me and my brother were teens we would spend ALL/EVERY summer between their homes learning the trade and helping around the dojos, etc) both use to teach martial arts back in the day (one Kenpo and other Shotokan). Anyway, they have been doing this for a long time and uncle S. I will call him is a very high Dan in the Shotokan world and has meet DM and knows him. DM is actually closer to my age but I have never meet him personally. Anyway, one day I was talking to uncle S. And I mentioned the show and how DM cracks me up when he says “it will kill” and he then explained to me like you did above what he was really saying and what it meant. From all appearance DM is a legit super nice guy too but definitely knows how to handle himself. He’s the actually reason I started watching the show then fell in love with blade forging. I really like it and wish I had the equipment/time/my younger self to forge myself. That time has now passed and I will just watch the show and enjoy it that way. You guys on this thread that forge for a hobby or a living, I tip my hat off to you as it looks absolutely grueling!! :hattip:

    No sir. Both my uncles are well known and have been in martial arts magazines and I probably already gave too much info as is. Don’t need any of you internet sleuths being able to figure it out. My uncles wouldn’t care at all, but that’s just one step away from finding out my info and I didn’t join my first ever online anything for that even though me personally being no one of importance! Just know my uncles can beat your uncles up!!:laugh::fistbump:

    oh I know who that is and I have meet Senior Grandmaster Parker. So are you kin to him? You don’t have to say cause I’m not putting out too much personal info on myself. Just curious. If in his family we may know each other or have at least met. He died right before I went into the military and it hit my uncle hard. He was very well loved!!:bowdown:

    Look at you asking probing questions :boink:; it's crazy how easy it is to fall down the internet wormhole in quest of answers, ties and random connections… No worries, I'll probe no more!!!

    It's crazy the sense of "family" that we develop in these types of circles and even crazier when we find out how small they really are. I'm sure as you were growing up, you experienced a similar dynamic of having these satellite family members being just as influential in your development and path into adulthood as your real family. I can honestly say they shaped my character, were highly influential in my career choices, and ultimately made me into who I would become as an adult. I am forever grateful to those who were a part of that small circle of my "extended" family.

    Have a great weekend!!

    No truer words have been spoke/wrote down. Man you even sound like my uncles, all philosophical and wise. That’s why I enjoy this forum so much!! As far as the weekend goes…..

    Yep, no ricaso, per the client request. I’ve cut myself several times on my own, during rapid mincing. I always ask because people are pretty passionate about having it or not.
