My Dear Friends,
Sincere appreciation for the birthday wishes!
I admit that I don't post much these days - work keeps me from the various fora to a great extent. That said, I do check in here from time to time and try as best I can to keep up with the goings-on. I still carry Spyderco knives as my primary edged tools - my Tasman Salt is always clipped to my kayaking vest and my Harpy is never far from hand.
As far as the injury is concerned, I am likely as healed as I am going to get. I had a close-call/bad scare earlier this year when I re-injured it, but I managed to get the pressure off of the tendon quickly enough to avoid any serious complications (it ended up pulled a bit rather than torn).
Again, my sincere thanks for the birthday wishes - I will endeavor to stop by here more often and contribute as time permits!
