A couple of monster lobsters there I bet they took a bit of air to catch.

Having already posted 3 times and with a WEPS PP II and some Choseras on the way, I thought it was time to get on this. Born in 1940 in New Jersey. Went to college in St. Louis before entering the Air Force in 1960, becoming a meteorologist, and retired in 1980. Spent 12+ years in England, 3 in Germany, 1 in California, and 3 in Florida... where I completed two degrees at the Univ of Miami. After moving back to NJ to take up a job as an operations manager in trucking for over 15 years, I left and became a paid EMT and EMS dispatcher. Retired, entirely, in 2006 and moved to the New York/Vermont border. Have since finished getting my pilot certification and spent even more frequent and longer vacations on the north coast of Maine. Past pastimes were, almost 2000 free fall jumps as an advanced skydiving instructor, and an open water diver.

Having accumulated a goodly number of quality knives over the past ten years, I decided to move up from the sharpening methods I'd been using and finally achieve the edges I want. My favorite, but not most expensive knife: J.R. Cook hand forged hunter. EDC: Small Chris Reeve Micarta Sebenza.
