SMKW Vendor Rep weekend
« on: October 23, 2016, 09:08:44 PM »
I have been to the Vendor Rep Weekend at the SMKW before and some years have been better than others :tu: A few years ago I was disappointed by it and decided not to go back :facepalm: This year seemed like it may a bit better so I decided to give it a try again :tu: Well I went yesterday and was really impressed  :like: The reps were very friendly and I even had a good chat with a couple of them :cheers: The Vic guy was very friendly and I let my little girl put a set of scales on a Spartan  :tu: It is digicamo pink and I will put some pics up of that :cheers: I talked to the Leatherman rep and after talking a while and me.with my MTO shirt on ;) Told me that November 19th Tim Leatherman is coming to SMKW and going sign tools :ahhh :ahhh :ahhh Needless to saw I was a bit over the moon with this new and will be going back in a month :dd: I also got to meet Neal James from Call of the Wildman and also Dave Canterbury :o I will try later and put some of these pics up as well :tu: Very great day yesterday and was pleased with the way it turned out :like:

Yes I do but with my home internet down (hopefully fixed by today or tomorrow) it is more of a chore to put pics up so I just haven't gotten around to it yet :whistle: :D

My little girl and Neal James of Call of the Wildman :cheers: He was a super nice person and all around as normal a person from my area as you can get :tu: He played the banjo and sang a couple songs with my little girl as well :ahhh He signed a few things and since it wasn't really announced who was gonna be there at the Knife Works there was really no line to meet him :o :like:

My little girl, Dave Cantebury and Me :D I was really excited to see Dave here as well :ahhh He was a really nice guy as well and he brought a crew of people with him and had quite a bit of stuff to buy from him and he was at different counters over the few days and he also done some demonstrations :cheers: I bought the BushCraft 101 book of his and got it signed as well :like: Again if not for FaceBook I wouldn't have known that him or Neal were going to be there and no line really for him either :cheers: Great day and some cool memories :tu:

 :dd: 2200 miles away from me.  I hope Mr Tim Leatherman will be closer to me at some point.  A signed LM tool(s) would be the ultimate.

I really hope that if nothing prevents me from going that I don't get overly excited and run off and leave my LM at home :ahhh :ahhh :ahhh :D Guess I would either buy a new one to get signed or he could sign my Vic :whistle: :rofl:

Put them in the car now  :tu:.  I don't know which I have him sign if I could only have him sign one  :think:.  I thought the Crunch would be cool to be signed, I wonder how many of those he signed?  I have also thought my JPST would be cool.  Hmm  :think: maybe my Surge.

Well maybe you'll have something to say to Tim Leatherman when you get back there.  Dave Canterbury seems to be very down to earth from what I can tell.  What was he carrying?  Could you see anything on his belt?

His flannel shirt was covering his belt and anything he would have been carrying and of course I didn't think to ask :facepalm: am sure he was carrying some sort of sharp though as all his crew seemed to be :like: I think his dad was with them as well as I heard him saying something about his dad being there and they looked a lot alike :tu: He had a neck knife with a stag handle on him :cheers: So you know Dave had a knife as well, of course everyone walking around had 1 or 3 knives on them :D

Interesting! I would like to go next year if possible, I've just recently moved to TN and learning my immediate area still but I knew SMKW was around here somewhere.   What facebook page were you following that clued you in? just SMKW's page?
