    My wife has family in France and they invited us to go to their vacation home in the French Alps last week.... I could not go as I am in the busy season at work, but I encouraged her to go to what she calls her “ happy place”. My daughter had vacation time and ended up making the trip with her. It’s near the Italian border way up in the mountains.... beautiful!

    They did a lot of hiking and crossed this cool bridge. That’s her in Blue!

    Well she came home tonight and told me how happy she was that I was so supportive of her going.... and she was in a small town and met a blacksmith who made custom knives..... and she purchased one for me!

    She said he was very in to Bushcraft and made this style knife for himself. It has a cork handle with white bone at each end.... super sharp, looks and feels very robust! I can’t wait to get out to use it.
    I’ve got a great wife!

    Very nice knife and nice gesture.
    Great, that your better half not only tolerates your 'outdoor addiction' but has a good taste in knives as well.

    That's pretty sweet. Nice of her.

    Does she realize this is not the last knife you'll ever buy?

    What a wife and a great knife. You are a lucky man. Would love to see more of your use of the new knife. What a cool trip for her too.

    Great knife.

    I’m a bridge builder, and that arched bridge is cool!
