Actually I did get something-
Spyderco Para 3 in M4 steel.
This steel is my personal favourite and I love the para 3 pattern.
I’m in the process of selling my other knives and this guy will be it :)



Will probably keep the chaparral too

I have both of those SMW's in my whisky cupboard as well. Whilst on the topic of whisky this came in the mail. I was lucky enough to sample some straight from the cask in June, delicious!

How is it KC?
I can't justify buying locally produced whisky at the moment as they are typically over $250 for 500ml of young spirit. However, I have heard that some distilleries are making some nice drops. Is this one?

Somebody here posted a while back about a shaving bowl from Avalon Pottery. My wife likes pottery so I have purchased a mug for her, personalised with name and date, as part of her Christmas present.



Nicely presented, great work and Alison is wonderful to work with. Highly recommended!

BTW, you can see her shaving bowl here but that would be customisable too.

Yep that was me!

I quite like the bowl i bought off Alison. The size is perfect for me. Packaging is also supremely well done.

Ahhhh, well done you - and thanks for the heads up. I created a reminder at the time to follow up and order something like this in time for Christmas. Might even be my go to present for my Mum, sister in law etc etc ...
