I wanted to give a quick shout-out to Joe at J.T. Knives in Port Jervis, NY. Joe runs a nice knife shop with a good selection of knives and other gear. His service is great and his knowledge on the stuff he sells is top notch!
There is nothing quite like visiting a good Brick and Mortar shop to experience how a particular knife, or other piece of gear, feels in your hands. You can’t get that experience online or through a catalog.
While I was there today I picked up a Buck Vantage Pro liner lock and a Tops Baghdad Bullet – which is a small EDC type fixed blade. Look for my impression on these two blades in the coming weeks.
I also had my first opportunity to check out the Fenix TK 40 and the 5.11 ‘Light for Life’ flashlights. The Fenix is a light I’ve been jonesing for for some time, but the 5.11 light was new to me. It appeared well made and apparently has a 90 second recharge time?!?!
Anyway, thanks Joe and hope to stop by again soon.
