VPN rich, VPN.

It was through TorGuard, and only to see what was occurring regarding the scandal, I got a message saying You have been banned twice Nice65. That was my BB username, but not there, it seemed a bit gleeful so I left it at that.

BB was the best UK knife forum because like BCUK it started before YouTube, Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook etc. The Internet forums were the beginning of social media, you could find people with similar interests easily and I have good mates I still get out with or am in touch with to this to this day, creating loads of other bank account shattering interests like stoves, bags, tents, hammocks, clothing, torches etc :D @Diamond Dave (need a meet mate), Stew, Beachlover, lots of good people. It had all the makers and characters sharing stuff, Stu M, Russell White, Shing, grumpy and bolshy Farid who’d cop a strop if you even looked at his knives the wrong way :D, Danzo, Mojo and the rest, that metallurgist nutter Zackerty who always said he’d never make another Serrata but still does. You know, the sort of forum where people made an effort and posted pics and information of work in progress, organised passarounds of knives rather than YouTube and Amazon links and enjoying a cheap pint in Wetherspoons sort of thing.

I must get a Serrata one day, I’ve been hovering for about 12 years. :)

I see the tongue in cheek... :)
Sorry to go off track...

THIS batch is REALLY the last...it was started in 2017 and still a few left, as most of those folk that "booked" a knife or two, pulled out...:(

It was 115 blanks in total, not my usual 12 to 16 at a time.
I am still paying off the making costs.
Lost my job along the way, and my body is old and falling apart.
Affected my personal life, and I am selling off personal stuff, including my wife's car.

Not all fun and games. Not at all.

I know mate, it’s in good humour, and a nod to you and the persistence of the Serrata over the years. Affectionate banter.

It is not the destiny of the custom knife producer to become wealthy through his product unfortunately, many a genius has become poor as a result. All the best fella, stay in touch.

I joined in 2008. Been away from the knives for a few years since I moved to Canada. Just started getting the workshop going so went to BB for some inspiration to find it gone. Shame. Had some good times in there. Really enjoyed the knife progress shots that people posted.
I still use a torch given to me by ZDP189 when I joined
