    I don't need them made specifically for my custom knife, I'll shape the tang after the scales. I guess I'll keep an eye on the Sales threads. I just wasn't sure where exactly to look for them. Thank you.

    it seems to me that a bee sting is a non-consensual penetration from a protrusion extruding from a bee's abdomen. There's a name for that...

    Picked up a sandblaster for $50 and some rock sliders from a buddy on a Toyota forum built for me.

    Got 2 coats of self etching primer and 3 coats of topcoat. Will probably install before a trail ride this weekend.

    Something that I find kind of funny. YETI products are made in China. There are supposedly fake YETI products. Guess where they are made.

    There was a test done on YETI vs Wally World tumblers. There was virtually no difference.....except the price. Having said that, I bought a YETI 18oz Rambler because I liked some of the features. Of course, Walmart has now copied them. YETI is suing everyone. :D

    Yeah, I won mine at a company Christmas party...no way I would have sprung for it myself. That being said, I was amazed when I first got it about 5 years ago...nowadays there's a lot of comparable options.

    Fairly common. People catch big groupers with live sharks/rays as bait all the time.
