That was the second and last tour I saw of RJD. There was a huge Egyptian themed mural which lit up especially for a "Heaven and Hell" act--Vivian Campbell on lead guitar. Friggen awesome, and one of my top three concerts.
Never would have thought to have seen this subject here.
My old Koa wood Kamaka, I owned from the mid 60's on. Its a basic model. Used to be pretty decent with it.
There's a crack on the back--took it in to inquire about a repair. One year waiting period, but now they use a cool tint clear finish, and use enough gloss coats to achieve the currently desirable smooth plastic-like coating look.
The warm (red) finish in this vintage has of course a warm glow, and...
Went way crazy but have settled on set of 6 pens. This including a cheap Indian Ranga 2C, from eBay that I don't count.

Probably should have waited for the coming production run to save some bucks, but due to arrive next week is a Burple S110V Para 2.
I'll probably sell one of my...
Have been out of it for a while.
Looking for a non-black or non-tactical colored Spyderco Military, and want a shop I can reliably exchange if the blade doesn't lie centered closed. Imo bright colors are best for urban edc.
Any comments on Knife Center, or Bento Box? BB is too pricey, don't need S90V, but I'll take it if I have to. What about Cutlery Shoppe or New Graham, which were among my go to shops in the...
