There were a couple more notes I meant to add to yesterdays update regarding delayed shipping and the upcoming Fergus Falls, MN Gun Show.
I’m going to be out most of next week so there will be a brief suspension of shipping. First, i’m going to spend a few days in the northwoods enjoying the fall colors and just kicking back. It’s not often I get to go up in October and am really looking forward to it. Summers are special in that part of the world and Fall can be gorgeous.
As soon as I return, I start packing things for the Gun Show in Fergus Falls the weekend of
10/21 thru 10/22. THE SHOW IS 10/14 THRU 10/15!! There will be one day to unpack from camping and get things sorted out for the show. The show is at the National Guard Armory and I’ll have 4 tables of necessities you can’t live without. Randy, Muskrat, Jim and all the rest of you I hope you can drop by.
It was a quiet week for new knife arrivals with GEC shut down for the week. They’ll be back to work next week and I anticipate they’ll be working on the Churchills with a few knives going out next week.
The main addition to the store this past week were the Hess fixed blades. Don and Andy Hess are getting busier then ever and extended delays between placing and receiving orders is becoming the norm. Its a great line at a terrific price and more people that spend time in the outdoors are finding out about them every day.
I finished cutting the wood slabs for the Trestle Pine Gunflint just over a week ago. That was shipped and should be just waiting to be applied to the knives. With any luck we should see the finished knives in the near future. The new curly maple is great looking and i can’t wait to see it on the knives. Another wood that was a shocker to me is the Hawaiian Mango. Wait till you see it!
