After a bit more discussion, he told us he needed to think about it and off they went. Both of us expected that was the end of it as we moved on to help other attendees who stopped by with questions.
Much to our surprise, a few hours later our Boy Scout was back, mom still in tow. He explained to us, “The knife will still be there, but if they take away my rights, then how will I use the knife?” You could have knocked us over with a feather. Mom watched proudly as we accepted his fifteen dollars. A wise and mature decision from a young man whose future, we expect, is quite bright.
Thanks again to KA-BAR, whose assistance and support allowed us to get a good booth location in the center of the floor, instead of being stuck off in a corner.
Blade Show in Atlanta, Georgia, is just around the corner, May 30 – June 1. We hope you’ll stop by and visit us at booth #148 between the Handmade and Guild sections at the front of the hall.
