OK...so I just bought a second Karambit Trainer (While they were in stock) so I could do the 2 handed drills on the DVD.

I actually used the 'points' on this purchase. I had 255 points and that gave me $2.55 off the purchase. Plus they gave me 117 new points for the trainer.

Interesting how they calculate the points. The Trainer costs $119.95 and it states that this purchase will earn 120 points. However, because I redeemed 255 points, they subtracted 3 points and I received 117 for the Trainer purchase.

This time of year absolutely. The 15# of shrimp was next to it

I typically have 3-5 traps in the water off my bulkhead

My house from the water. I'm wanting to buy it but with the flood insurance turmoil I'm holding off

I'm slightly concerned that there is a problem specific to the chrome blades that has held this up. I agree, either next week... or perhaps not at all?

I've read things about chrome blades corroding inside on the steel base due to minor breaks in the chrome surface. Some makers still managed to produce good products that maintained a solid finish. Then there's the problem of sharpening a chrome knife and breaking the seal. I used to see dive knives with what seemed to be chrome finishes, but titanium was the only thing I liked.

Also...Emerson Knives has an App for iPhones, iTouch, and iPads. I installed it on my iPhone today. It says it was developed by his son, Lucas.
