    been posting around the place for a few days now, and never stopped in here to actually say hi.

    So... HI :wave:

    I'm not what I would call a collector by any means, but always have a knife of some sort on my belt and have accumulated a few different knives over the years, have even made a few myself - mostly stock removal but did hammer out a couple back when I had access to a nice gas forge years back.

    Boy, if anyone thinks it is easy to shape a 3/4" O1 round bar into a 4" loveless style fixed blade with nothing more than hand tools and a 5 pound cross peen hammer, I got a different story to tell you...

    Welcome! Looks like we almost have enough Albertans for a M&G! Red Deer?

    that's a strong possibility, I'd be up for that, but would have to be a good couple of months down the road for me to make it. Work is just way to crazy for me right now, and the foreseeable future.

    maybe somthing towards the end of Feb/early March that I could plan for would work.

    I'd be game for a little later in the year. My wife and I are having a baby due January 13. So it might be march or April before I could get out for a day

    This is looking good! We could also plan for the big Easter Gun Show (Easter weekend :) ) in Calgary. I know a couple of local guys who would be down for it.

    Surprised just how many there are here. I am used to being just about the one and only on these bigger boards, never have I seen such strong representation.

    I guess that just means that we Albertans are serious about our daily carry. ;)
