Several of us have already left for Las Vegas to set up our display. I leave tomorrow. This means that for the rest of the week there'll be no one here to answer technical questions. So if you need answers please e-mail us and we'll try to respond each morning before the show opens. There is no phone tech support this week, sorry. The shipping department is unaffected so orders will ship with the usual promptness.
12cm slim knife for the several fishermen here, myself included. The stainless steel blade is perfect for filleting or cleaning a trout or other small fish. It's also nice if you just desire a longer blade for camp cooking.
expedition version of the classic No.8 features a lightweight plastic body, orange of course, with an integrated whistle. The blade is stainless with a serrated base and shackle key. The cord end is a nice touch for quick attachment. The wooden handles of traditional knives can swell if they stay wet for a long time, so this knife is recommended for kayakers, sailors, and folks in very wet climates.
a special version of the #8 stainless steel knife made for mushroom hunting and foraging, something a few of us here at VO enjoy doing. It has a curved blade that will cleanly slice off a mushroom, fruit, greens, and many other things that you may find or grow. The boar bristle brush is used to clean the dirt off delicate mushrooms. This knife is also very useful for light pruning duty in the garden.
Okay, enough about knives. We have another container arriving soon with new bike stuff to write about.
