I ordered more MNOSD swag while it was still on sale. :bug-white-red
I got the email too . Since I ordered two T-shirts, I want to wait to see how they fit . I ordered two different styles . I expect since we are on their mailing list more specials will follow . Hope your hand is doing better .Just got back from hospital few minutes ago . My wife had surgery on her hand , doing good . 0002
Oh, I'm sorry to hear that. Carpel Tunnel repair? Glad she is doing well.
Actually wife has had that surgery twice in both hands . She had surgery for trigger thumb , they did other hand last year . She is a landscaper so it’s from operating weed eaters , mowing , and pruning . Thumb catches and locks up and painful at times . It’s a minor quick surgery just wasn’t thrilled going to hospital today . They are at full capacity. 0002
Man, how long was she dealing with that? I have a mallet finger from an injury playing goal keeper last fall. It has been around 4 months and it is still tender.

Thanks guys , she and I both appreciate it your concerns. It will set me back a little doing the thirty day challenge with the Pacific Salt . I have everything I need to start and have carried it for a week so far . Itching to start cutting cardboard and resharpen. Something about this knife, it is really growing on me . 0002

She has had this problem for over a year . They did right hand last year and left hand today . She had the surgeries while she is off for the winter and she can recover better . Jeff if your problem keeps bothering you , I am not a doctor but you may need to see a specialist. Injured hands are the worst because of all the nerves in your hand . Thanks again .Dan

I have a question on membership.

What happens to a members status when knives leave the sock drawer? Let’s say one knaf at a time is taken out, and dare say used? (This must be the lowest level of membership right?)

Are we all low tier members?
Let us all consider this...

Hahahahahahah!!!!!!!

I feel there was a mistake here much like in one of my favorite movies Brazil. A fly has landed on the typewriter and instead of terminating the evil Kevinim83, a fly landed and was smudged by a key, has made the 3 into a 2… and I am erased from this world.

No tiers here . Simple solution , put a extra knife in to replace the one you take out . Your drawer will never know the difference. We run a serious operation here , trick questions put a lot of pressure on me . ;) Never the less it is Friday and I will make an exception. 0002
I have done just what you recommended! A Native 5 will be coming next week. I shall try this solution and see if it works.

Alas I run into another problem… I told my wife I would be limiting my knife purchase this year… say this “place holding knaf” made 50% of my estimated knaf purchases.

Where shall I sleep?
A:With the wife on our nice bed
B: With the dog on his version of a nice bed

MG2, a most speedy recovery to Mrs. MG2. May her sheers ever be sharp. May you also not upset her armed with sharp sheers.

I may eventually. Mallet is not as severe as trigger since it is a smaller tendon. It is very rare to require surgery unlike trigger finger. They said 4-6 month recovery after 8 weeks of immobilization, but I thought that was crazy at first. It appears they were correct.

I hope she gets back to work quick.

Yes, that is exactly what I had in mind.
Use the millie blade wings but put the left wing behind the sock. It would kinda look like a sports team logo lol.

Gimme a couple of days, so I can clear decks. I'll try. Full disclosure, I'm not an artist, I'm a hack, and my designs tend to look very static and block-like. I should have been a designer for Soviet style housing, or maybe Al Gore's debate coach. What you want is something lively and artistic, something that could fly, and frankly it's beyond my skill-set. But I'll give it a shot; no offense taken if y'all don't like it...I rather am expecting to be underwhelmed myself...!

PS: My best to Mrs. Manixguy, please.

You guys underestimate what you have done for the Most Noble . I truly appreciate the time and effort that has been put into these projects . I really don’t think we are here to judge efforts that’s not what we are all about . Al Gore’s debate coach ? That is hilarious ! Thanks for kind words to The CEO ! 0002

Thanks for the support, guys, but praise is the wrong motivation for me. I'm motivated out of fear. I saw what happened to Kevinim82. (Still LOL'ing about that post...he he he, oh, funny. So much fun.)

A more complex design, required color to distinguish the elements. In all black it doesn't "read." It's not very refined (could use a 3/4 view of the sock, not "primitive egyptian side view"), but if someone wants to continue to develop the design I can send you an .ai or an .eps version of this. For now, here's .png. And for those curious, yes, the middle blade is a Caly 3.5, one of my absolute faves. PS: These logos designed against a white background. For colored backgrounds I think more tweaking would be necessary.

Where did you find the devilishly handsome James Bond clone to model the shirt?

And more to the point, how's the fit...as expected?
