Just a real short update this week and I’ll start with the Blade Show. I didn’t go and I’m not sure how many of you made it but there seems to be quite a bit of grumbling. In just the last couple of days I’ve talked to 4 people that went ( one didn’t even go in when he saw the line) and the complaints were all the same. Had to pay to park, pay to get in, crowded as hell and the beer ain’t cheap!!! It also sounded like they had split some displays off into different areas making it hard to get around to see everyone. That’s too bad. Let’s hope they make some changes to smooth out some of the rough spots next year.
I received the Red Micarta Clip Blades and OD Green Boys Knives today. If you had an early order in you should have an invoice in hand by now. Just a blunt reminder that I do expect the invoices to be paid within 3 days or you are SOL. I’m really firm on that as there is another large group of 15’s coming in the next few days and I want to move these out as soon as possible. Later next week I’m heading back out to North Dakota for a few days so if things don’t get picked up in a timely manner, I can guarantee they won’t ship in a timely manner either.
I did order fairly heavy on the Clip blades and should have some decent numbers left available in the store after the early orders are filled. The OD Green was completely sold out so no spares in that category.
Some of you may have noticed I had some Whalers that were added to the store. I have an old customer make a non-knife trade with me and I’m basically handling these on a consignment basis. I don’t typically like to do that but we’ve worked on deals like this before and it’s worked out for both of us. Just glad to have some extras.
Just to wind things up quickly I have to share a few more posts from this past weeks Police Blotter. Just about the time you think the boys and gals in Blue have things under control….
Been there done that!!! Haven’t we all? VERY common mistake but usually happened to me after closing time.
Hmmm….didn’t notice they hit the goats until they noticed the damage to the car?
Wonder why it’s important we know the complainant is ‘female’….
Have a good weekend and watch out for roaming goat herds!!!
