The Golden team have brought me to tears

Postby demoncase » Fri Mar 29, 2019 12:43 pm

So, over in off topic I celebrated our little miracle Georgina.
viewtopic.php?f=5&t=82858

As a result I had a couple of emails from the lovely, lovely folks in Golden including Tazkristi. A few weeks later, all the way across the Pond, I had a another little suprise.

I have actually cried. It's actually left me speechless at the utter kindness of Sal, Eric, Gayle, Kristi and all the team there. My wife is amazed.

Georgina's first knife is just perfect.....I'll keep it safe until you are old enough. (Provided I can stop welling up long enough) :spyder:
Warhammer 40000 is- basically- Lord Of The Rings on a cocktail of every drug known to man and genuine lunar dust, stuck in a blender with Alien, Mechwarrior, Dune, Starship Troopers, Fahrenheit 451 and Star Wars, bathed in blood, turned up to eleventy billion, set on fire, and catapulted off into space screaming "WAAAGH!" and waving a chainsaw sword- without the happy ending.

I somehow missed your topic earlier. Congratulations with your daughter! Hope you and your family are doing fine.
What an amazing gift from Spyderco. They are really involved with their customers and us forumites.
Sure she is going to like it when she is old enough. :)
