1. Due to the amount of SPAM from foreign countries lately, we have made the decision to manually approve all new members. While we regret that this must be done and the added time that it will take for new members to be approved, it is necessary at this time. We hope to have legitimate new members approved in a timely manner, no longer than a couple of hours. If the Administrators are online at the time, it can be as soon as a couple of minutes. Thank you for your patience.

    Anybody here ever gone to one of Bark River's Grind-In events? http://www.barkriverknives.com/index/grind-ins/ If so, how was it?

    I just finalized all my reservations and travel arrangements for the June Grind-In this year. Anyone else going to that one?

    ...a couple of pics of my red Gunny so we don't end up with one of them picture-less threads ;)

    I keep thinking about going some day, I should've done it already, I live probably only an hour and a half from there.

    Enjoy. It should be a fantastic experience.

    Sweet! I was hoping there would be somebody from BCUSA there.
    I already have a hotel reservation but I'd still be down to hang out around a camp fire.

    I have a 2 week layoff at that time and would love it. It really sounds like just Friday and sat. correct ? kind of hang around sunday ?
    I want very much to start to learn this trade, been a machinist for awhile so I got a very small start.
    Glad you posted this, I was gonna go last year but couldn't. I have a couple of questions to any of you that have attended.

    Had a great time meeting you at the Grind-In (Tom here, btw). Really enjoyed your company. Glad we went back for knife #2. Wish you could've built the Nessmuk, but your Wolf River came out awesome. Hope your travels home went well. Just wanted to give you a heads up for my near future knife order. I've got a few ideas I'd like to run by you, as I'd like to add your build to my collection. We'll be touch soon...

    It was great meeting you too! That was a lot of fun. Hopefully we'll all be able to go again next year.

    Man, that sounds like fun! I think I might check that out. Make your own Bark River.
