    My wife and my daughter went shopping across the border this afternoon and they went by the UPS store to pick up John's package for me.
    So I called to check on them ( I mean to check on the package lol ) and my daughter tells me there is TWO knives in the package !!! .... and that she loves the "Brown one"
    WOW !!! TY John
    I had my daughter take pics and text them to me... the brown knife is a Remington r1178 !
    Thanks again to John and to Vince for entering for me :)
    Two great knives !!! ... and now I am onto researching and learning about the Remington company :thumbsup:

    That's a GREAT picture.
    If I knew they looked that nice, I wouldn't have given them away. :D
    Seriously, I hope you enjoy them and they bring happiness to you (and your daughter).

    Just before sunset I went outside to take a pic of my boats with the knives.
    The red one I build myself 11 years ago for my parents. It's a rowboat for two people, it can also take a very small outboard .
    My parents used it a lot on the Rideau Canal between Kingston and Ottawa, now it lives with us and we are sill using a lot on the Saint Lawrence river for rowing ... or if you are lazy like me ... for slow river cruising under power :)

    Ok ... I hesitated a bit to post this pic ... but hey, here it goes lol :)
    Whatever is confessed at the porch stays at the porch lol :)
    This may happen to you in the first 30 seconds after receiving the knife you won in a GAW ...
    Yeap... when you are excitedly opening and closing all the blades and getting to know the knife :)
    My 12 y/o daughter said " What ! ... you cut yourself already "

    Aw, that's nothing: I almost cut my fingertip off a couple of months ago!

    At least you know it's sharp! My Victorinox knives are sharp. Haven't had to sharpen my Tinker or my Spartan yet. I have sharpened my Classic, but I've had it for many years.
