    Hello!

    I've been lurking for about a year, finally joined the forums this morning. I have been an on off knife enthusiast for most of my life. Different brands litter my meager collection, but I have noticed a trend that spyderco knives have started to multiply. I am a user and won't purchase a safe queen. Spyderco is the best company, I've found, that blends aesthetics with high performance seamlessly. I have learned a wealth of information while perusing the forums. There are some VERY bright people on here! I purchased a sharpmaker a year ago due to the positive reviews read on here and can say that it has been the single best purchase I've ever made regarding knives. It did not take a lot of practice to put incredibly sharp edges on all of my knives. I also am very impressed by the owner, Mr. Sal Glesser's presence on here. Shows a lot when the owner of the company cares enough about his business to personally address questions and concerns over his products. The company, though enormously popular, still has that small family business feel. I love it. Keep up the good work! Look forward to many more informative hours broadening my knowledge of spyderco knives!

    So far, I have a blue and a green frn delica 4, stainless delica 4 I had engraved, DLC para 2, g-10 manix 2 hollow grind, and orange endura 4. Seriously want a GB next. Only thing holding me back is worries of rust or corrosion. That said, I'm sure it'll be next because it's so highly recommended. Looks like a good user blade.

    I guess if you're into gambling or shows, the strip is the place to be. When you live here, the city doesn't have the "wow" factor. In addition, I work on the strip, so I am loathe to go back there on the weekends. That being said, we do have a lot of great shows and residencies in town. Tim mc graw & faith hill, Celine dion, Elton John, Donny & Marie, too name a few. The cirque du soleil shows at the various properties never disappoint. I'm working on a remodel now named the Cromwell that opens in a month that has, in my opinion, the best day&nightclub on the strip. Pool is on the roof, location and view are perfect for watching bellagio fountains or New Year's Eve fireworks. There also are so e cool things to see or do if you're more the outdoorsy type (as I am). No trip is complete without going out to Hoover dam. Take the tour. It's worth it. Red rock canyon has excellent hiking opportunities, beautiful red sandstone formations. Not pleasant in summertime though. Mt charleston has beautiful wooded mountains, excellent hiking and camping opportunities, and lodge at the top with cabins for rent. The hotel 3/4 of the way up has modern lodging and great food. Really nice drive that I take often when I wanna get out of the heat. Valley of fire is another must see. Like red rock I recommend it for every season except summer. Summer here is like winter in anchorage. It lasts forever, and you never feel comfortable. At least I don't. Honestly, the summers are the worst part of living here, in my opinion.
