A Big Shout Out

I would like to thank Bruce Deachman for catching wind of In The Air from our Meetup group; a mere two months into its activity.  Bruce bragged about it being one of the catchiest things to do in town.

He noted the dedication of our throwers, the diversity, as well as the simple enjoyment that was expressed on everyone's face.

Gil Hibben: THE name to knives, as Tesla is to electricity & Henry Ford is to cars.  Though you may not think you know his stuff - you do. Gil made the elaborate Klingon weapons and armor for Star Trek, as well as Rambo knives, and more.  If it is an incredible blade, Gil most likely forged it!

I would also like to thank Xolette for her incredible tutorials, reviews, demonstrations on a huge selection of blades, techniques and more.  By all means, check out her YouTube and subscribe.
