Blade Show 2011 “The Gunny”

Posted: July 5, 2011 in Events

I recently attended the Blade Show in Atlanta Georgia. It is always good to see the state of the industry, make new friends, and revisit old ones. I must say, however, that high point to this years show was an opportunity to meet R. Lee Ermey “The Gunny” and spend a few moments speaking with him. It seems he is a knife guy and enjoyed showing me the knives he helped SOG create. He also took the time to look over a few of mine and signed the sheath from one of my CL2’s.

Following our conversation I thanked him for taking the time to speak with me and review my knives when he stated, “I learned a long time ago, its doesn’t cost much to be a decent human being”. I guess I have a new quote for the quote book.
