My son just picked up this as a EDC. Pretty impressed so far.

cool idea about the quick field stripping. nice knife. looking forward to a 6 month review.
dragon i spoiled myself over xmas with a benchmade bailout tanto blade. its half the thickness of any other folding knife i own, and half the weight as well. which initially sold me on the choice, but now its so f*cking light that i cannot tell when its in a pocket. which sounds silly but drives me nuts if i cant do a quick kit check while on the move. if that makes sense. otherwise its a helluva knife.

Yeah but I want the fork on the FS as HT life is getting old. Maybe I'll just snag another from the buy/sell.

Have prices gone down on Trust forks yet?

What's the long term service situation look like? I think at a certain level when you're working on it suspension is suspension ...

Well f*ck 2021. I am ready to go back to 2020..


A huge Pine came through the corner of our house this mourning. Royally f*cked the entire corner of the house and ripped half the porch off the front of the house. Broke and pushed the foundation of the house around.

Smashed in the roof of a Ford Excursion that I have as a flip that wasn't insured.

Truck Injector control module died today while trying to get the truck fired up to go get the trailer and tractor to pick things up.


House took a beating today.
House took a beating today.

House took a beating today.
House took a beating today.

House took a beating today.
House took a beating today.



My box trailer was sitting at dads property and had the start of my mobile bike shop build out and the trailer got completely crushed... And it wasn't insured..


Mother in laws house got center punched as well and she has branches into her living room..

A little overwhelmed with today overall... I usually drink my sorrows away with water beer.. But its a scotch type of night and a early wake and full day of work tomorrow.

What a clusterf*ck.

Shit Swan! So sorry to see that. There was a ton of downed tree related damage and power outages stemming from last nights' wind storm.

Hopefully the damage will look better through scotch-tainted glasses!

The wife took the dog today while I was dealing with getting the tree off dad's shop and while I was having an absolute melt down.. I realized how much my dog is keeping me from going off the edge on the daily. I legitimately thing I could register her as a therapy dog, because she is what keeps me together.. Lol

f*ck bro, tough break on the house. I'm glad nobody got hurt, that's some serious damage.

And I feel you 100% on the dog... I'd probably be in jail if not for Gideon.

Holy crap,it is like 2020 never left the Old Balls thread!
Crappy luck there for sure. We had a big front go through today, might have been part of the same system.
