Hello from Spokane Valley

I was unaware of these Hood forums. I have collected them for a couple years now.  Picked up a hollow grind thug a couple weeks ago.

My user. Making leather  sheaths also as a hobby.

Welcome friend! Big Grin Yes I was (and still am) simply ecstatic about the Hoodlums forum, their magazines, merch and videos--they are my greatest survival resource and best entertainment!

I have here the Punk, Hoodlum and I gave the Thug to my boyfriend--Ron and Karen sure knew what they were doing when they designed these knives! Some of my favorites....

but I dont have that little one!! hmm

Is that leather sheath for your "user" one that you made yourself?

Many fine leather workers and bladesmiths on this forum, even a few who have been featured on tv ect....

Nice collection! I picked up Karen's last knife at the local shop and fondled it for a bit. It sure felt superior to so much garbage that's for sale now.

It just felt like it was made for the wilderness!

Are methods we use to cleanse our spirits.

Hi Makael,

Thanks for joining us. How did you get a "Bootlegger"? That was supposed to be the last knife in the series but Buck pulled the plug on them. I didn't know they had any actually made. I had only gone in to approve the prototype..... It was only month's after that, I found out that the head of the Co. had authorized giving all employees there one of them for their Christmast Gifts. And I didn't get ONE from them. After one of my good friends at Buck found this out she gave me hers and said "Karen, you deserve this!" She was so sweet. She was not aware that I was left out of the loop on this decision. It really left a bad taste in my mouth. Then month's after they gifted their employees the blades, I had to endure watching them one by one post them on EBAY - selling them for exorbitant amount using Ron's name and my company name,Hoods Woods, to make a few bucks on us! I didn't see ONE dime from them! Not a good way to handle a business relationship with a widow!

Anyway - rant off. I am over it. But it was "dirty pool" and was handled poorly in my opinion. Was not a good note to end on after my (I though was good standing) relationship with that company.
