    As long as you bring your EnZo to the DKE I say yes!

    They seem good for the money, for sure. But I'm too lazy and busy to do some proper research at the moment

    So yeah, err, I'm not Dutch but after talking in JPE's thread yesterday there's a chance me and the family may be coming.
    Priced up the ferry last night and it's too bad but looking out to see if a deal can be had!!


    Edit, that's supposed to say the ferries not too bad!!

    The more the merrier! Hope you can find a good deal on the ferry.

    Is it a ferry ride? It doesn't really ride now does it?

    Yeah, meant to say not too badly priced but should be some deals around. Return trip with a vehicle and cabin at full price is £300 for the four of us.

    Not sure what it is really, all I know is it makes me feel sick:D

    That £75 each, car included. That's pretty decent as it is. Still hope you can find a better deal, then the rest can be knife money!

    Yeah you and me both.

    Would be nice to get it a bit cheaper to free up more funds!
    We get travel sickness tablets from the doctor which eases it a bit but depends on how rough the sea is:)

    That helps, but those make you really tired and give you headaches right? That's what they do to me anyway. I'm generally okay on busses and boats, unless I read anything. It's not a pretty sight.

    Let's hope the sea will play nice for you

    Thanks for the tag Joost!

    I'm not sure if I'm going yet but I've noted the date. I'm kinda curious but I also think I might be done buying knives for a while (got pretty much everything to meet my needs) so I might want to avoid temptation.

    Still a couple of months to go though, things can change, we'll see :)

    Yeah, that would be fun. But it's still a long drive, although I can't really complain about that now that even Gwac is making it over there :rolleyes:

    I'll let you guys know what I'll do when we're a bit closer to April.

    This will be my first time this year. Looking forward to it! Will there also be famous knife companies like Spyderco or only custom made knives? Just curious :)

    I think it a little early to be already thinking about April, I'll decide so much later.

    I do think it very interesting to see what they're making and doing over there thou but I don't think I'll buy much over there as it's all probably a little rich for a old miser like me.

    i just made a little wish list of stuff i want to get, they probably won't have some of the stuff on my list but i'm stil hoping to get some of the stuff that's on there.
    and the stuff i don't get there can always be ordered online.
