I didn't know they named it after him. Very fitting. RIP Sir.

While there I told Chris and TR that I'd done a project for Col. Nick Rowe in 1984. That meant something to stand where he is honored. Must have been the humidity, my eyes started sweating a little bit.

We were having a cold snap while you were here.

A minor rainstorm arrived while we were there.

Students still had to hustle.

Around the time TR made that pic a bolt of cloud sparks lit up a tree a couple hundred yards (at the most) past the guy walking. Nice special effects you have available there...

Good training.

Now do it in the rain, like Mr. Harsey.

You looking for a point of contact at Paraclete?

All I can do is to hook you up with their Business Manager. He is a former SF Detachment Commander who I know.

Yessir!!

Mr. Harsey worried me, till I remembered that he was a logger, and is immune to falls under 100 feet.

Reaper Sir, the pic where you are in front of the Nasty Nick it looks like you are about to draw pistols from either side lol. Gets me thinking who is behind the camera. :D

Still, he has the 5.11 gear, and with the vest, that is the guy you have to worry about first.

I'd rather go bear hunting with a switch than mess with any of them - and I'm a bad ass SOB. LOL

Reapers too mean to take a picture of, I tried but the super smart digital camera we had was flashing the electronic message "DANGER! DO NOT TAKE PICTURE!" and automatically shut down.

Okay, I went back out to CMK and at great personal risk, took a pic of the steel fence post Chris Reeve attacked with a Yarborough Knife.

He took a full on chop with it that was very hard (and loud).

As he steped back over by us, I expected to see the edge of the blade chipped, bent, or severely nicked.

It was none of these. The fencepost, as you can see about midway in this picture, did not escape quite as cleanly.

He took a ceramic stone to the blade, and while I am not even sure that it needed it, in less than 30 seconds, had restored the edge to hair-popping perfection. I dragged the edge on my thumbnail and there was no defect or damage to be found.

If I ever get one of these knives to beat up on, I will take requests and push it to the limit, but given this demonstration, I will have to say that I was truly impressed.

Well done, Mr. Reeve and Harsey!
