    Excellent meeting, over 20 people showed. Special thanks to Robert and Bushwacker for their presentations. For the newcomers if you didn't get this as a email please contact me ASAP. Any questions or concerns also please contact me ASAP.

    Robert gave us quite a in depth knowledge of what to think about when choosing a knife. However I repeat his words, choose the knife that is right for YOU and fits YOUR style.

    Here are a couple of links that tell you about materials and parts of a knife.

    Bushwacker gave a prestation on using knitting needles to knit paracord items. The major advantage is that parts of cord can be used without unraveling the whole finished piece.

    Below is a couple of video links for knitting

    The presenter for the paracord knitting topic has requested that if people can bring 10 foot of paracord and some knitting needles (Walmart has them for a couple of bucks, might be able to find them cheaper elsewhere).
