Holiday Family Time

Life is all about balance. Trying to keep all the important aspects of our lives clearly in focus- best we can.

Last week I shared with you about the CNJ staff all taking off the rest of 2009, and that includes me too now. I’m off investing time with my wife and kids in a Winter Wonderland. And while I did look to see if I could locate a speciality knife shop around where we are- with no luck- we’re spending our time playing in the snow.

I hope you are enjoying your holidays too.

When you see it you got to shoot it!

gerber-test-194A knife friend of mine was recently telling me about his hiking trip into the Utah Mountains with his daughter. There is no doubt the purpose of the hike was “family time,” but he is a professional photographer, so you can imagine how difficult it must have been not to “see” shots as he hiked along. 

His name is Derek Smith of Salt Lake City and you know what- he did see a shot he couldn’t resist. So, being a knife guy too, he pulled from his pocket the knife he happened to have at the time and shot it. And while this isn’t his favorite knife, it is a killer shot anyway.

Thanks Derek. Maybe one day we can work out getting you to Alabama to sh0ot my collection.
