Welcome aboard guys! It's a good thing to see so many people join the forums it's hard to keep up with. You must have been doing something right in getting a WEPS ;) .

Don't hesitate to ask any questions if you have them. You've just joined a bunch of very helpful and fun-to-be-with people!

Hello all,

I have been around here a few weeks now, reading and watching everything I could find about the WEPS. I finally jumped into the rabbit hole today and ordered a WE PP with PPII upgrade kit and a full set of chosera's. I am a small time knife nut, also like guns and flashlights (everyone here as talked about guns but forgot the flash lights). I have had a knife and flashlight since cub scouts and a gun shortly there after.

I am an electrical engineer by trade and an industrial engineer by schooling. So I am also into manufacturing and metallurgy and enjoy studying knife steels. I have definitely enjoyed seeing all the micrographs of sharpened edges here.

I live in SC now. My other active hobbies/interests include computers, programming, bicycling (on and off road), fixing things around the house (at least just to justify buying the tools), photography, and hiking. Other hobbies include shooting and SCUBA.

He Geocyclist,

Welcome here!

Sounds we have a lot in common, apart from a love for sharp knives. I love biking too (I have four bikes and that is quite normal where I live), particularly with a GPS device. And I too do things with computers and like diving.

You’ve definitely made the right decision with your choice for a WEPS! And you’ve also joined a great community of people that like to help each other. So if you have any questions, before or after your WEPS arrives, please don’t hesitate to ask.

And uh… is Apple another hobby of yours?

I am an Apple fanboy. Depends on how you define hobby vs. addiction. That and after looking through a free avatar site all i found was Apple and Milka German chocolate bars. Thought Apple was more fitting as I am impartial when it comes to chocolate.

Welcome Dave!

It sounds like we are lucky to have someone with your background and experience as part of the WEPS community. I hope you have some time to share some of your expertise one day soon!
