I, like a great many, feel Bernard Levine has gone to great lengths to try to make as clear as possible what's behind the names of various patterns and where they originated. If you are not familiar with Bernard Levine and his unprecedented research, please read this and/or go to his link to get more background on him and his research - …Continue
Memorial Day is a US Federal holiday observed on the last Monday of May. It was called Decoration Day, after the American Civil War, to commemorate the fallen Union soldiers of the Civil War. Southern womens organizations and southern schoolchildren decorated Confederate graves during the Civil War, but each region had its date mostly in May.
For those iKC members who do not live in the US, this day had been extended to honor all Americans who have died in all wars. It is a day of…Continue
I find my choices in knives change weekly. One week I'm all about you get what you pay for,the next week I make a new buy and say I could have got 4 of these for what I paid for that.
The knife world is changing and its tough to keep up. I guess that's what keeps us moving on.
If this happens to you let me know so I know I'm not out of focus.

Although there are better, not to mention more informative, "survival" programs on television these days (Dual Survival, Survivor Man, etc), I must admit that I am an avid watcher of Bear Grylls' 'Man vs Wild.' Although I disagree with and would never recommend many of his methods, the program is often quite entertaining. That's a good bit of advice; it's entertainment. Never base any survival methods on a tv show; no matter how convincing it may be. There's a reason there are disclaimers…Continue
Know I know that seems like a unexpected request here but hear me out.
