my new knives

ok… so happy! my motorcycle is out of the shop!! i picked it up this afternoon. i am also now mostly outfitted for my road trip. tomorrow i will do a sample packing. it shouldn’t be hard since i’m not taking much with me. i need to pick up my granola bars and whatnot.
before i went to pick up the bike, i went to world of knives in hopkins, which is where mike has a discount for his students. the guy there, mark, showed me a bunch of knives. i picked out a small folding knive for my pocket, in the style we’ve been practicing with, and a neck knife, because it was cool. both are tiny. i really like them. i was a little worried mike would laugh at me and tell me to return them and get something else. but he didn’t. he fully approved.
i now have knives.
this picture has my hand in it so that you can all see just how tiny they are. 🙂 isn’t that little neck thing sweet? i LOVE it.
so we did some practicing with the knives themselves today in class. i need to practice opening the pocket knife quickly. mike recommends that i tape the blade a little so i don’t cut myself while i’m learning.
so, tomorrow is my last day of training here in minnesota. it’s been fun. now i can feel prepared to find a place to learn more in maastricht. not such a pansy.
on a side note, matt’s parents have a full, professional massage table. rock on.
Good luck with everything. It was great seeing you again.
thanks, joel! it was great to see you, too. it was nice to meet your girlfriend, too. she rocks.
Have fun on your road trip!
thanks! it was nice to meet you!
