    Yeah, I'm aware. Can't blame a guy for hoping tho haha.

    I like to hunt and am a proud Virginian. I've also lived in Pa, the mountains of Colorado and upstate NY among other places. Believe it or not I have never been anywhere besides Alaska where people are as into hunting as upstate NY. I know people think the north east is all yuppies and skinny jean hipster, but for every one of them there is someone decked out in mossy oak. I've come to realize fellow red necks are every where.

    I whole-heartedly agree!
    I (when visiting the in-laws in CT) was amazed by the redneck quotient of the Northeast. I think there are more in Mass. and CT than North and South Carolina together(well that's a stretch), but still.................

    Jim, I was not disparaging anyone in NE or anywhere else, not sure how it could have come across as such.

    Thread was about SHOT show, it evolved (as they do) to include some discussion of having it in Northeast. I opined that this was not likely as the NE is not considered gun friendly. As in perceived, generally regarded, thought of, deemed. I did not assert that this was true nor do I agree with it.

    If I expressed that opinion poorly and was subsequently misunderstood I apologize.

    No need to apologize Dave. I did not read it that way at all, I was simply asking why you thought a mod might be upset because I saw no reason at all..

    Going back to kitchen knives at SHOT, I got to handle a prototype of a knife I have a major part in designing. No model name or production date yet but they did much better than I expected with it. On the other hand, it may be a little too esoteric for many here. Time will tell. I can tell you there is no Japanese influence involved what so ever in the knife.

    Very interesting. What can you tell us about said knife? When can we see it on the market?

    I don't want to be accused of exploiting this site for my own commercial gain so I won't say too much about the knife. It is based on a pattern I found in Hanoi Vietnam. No model name yet and I wasn't told when they plan to go into production. These things sometimes take for ever it seems like. The proto was 1095 carbon steel but they are till debating what to use in the production model. What ever they go with, it will be far ahead of the Viet mode I'm sure.
