My Eastman T486SB
Picked up the 9.7in 2017 5th gen iPad 2017 in GOLD at Target for a measly $265 ($280 w/o Red Card discount!) 😎 and it’s AWESOME 😍. My last iPad was iPad 3 way back in 2013 and I’ve really missed not having one and it’s great to be back in the fold. 😇
This purchase fills the last slot and makes me 3 for 3, I am now full Apple with Apple watch, iPhone and a home computing device. My gear score is through the roof! 😆😄👍🏾
Just put a deposit on this Gretsch New Yorker acoustic archtop 😃.
It’s new, but shopworn, a 2014 model that’s been sitting there unsold for 4yrs!
I should have it out by May 👍🏾😃.
In the name of Dr. Martin Luther King, sing! Pride, in the name of love, what more in the name of love!
I’ve been wanting a Boker knife for quite some time but never found a knife of theirs that excited me. Since my purge of tactical blades I gave Boker another look and came away with this beauty: a 182 pattern camp knife with gorgeous stag handles. I am very pleased 😄.
$134 to Amazon and it arrived incredibly quickly in just 3 days, sweet! It was packaged quite nicely (companies have learned a lot from Apple) and the entire blade exudes quality.
Apparently Boker have been making this pattern nearly 150yrs and it’s the most popular and respected of all their knives. I have always loved scout knives and owned 2 larger Case ones. I gave one away and misplaced the other and have been in distress for years because they no longer make that particular pattern anymore.
The Boker is smaller and contains LOTS more tools so it is not an exact copy of my old Case utility, but it’s an upgrade in quality and materials certainly.
(I once dropped my old Case in the grass near my motel. I searched high and low and found it the next morning but incredibly it had started to rust badly just from the morning dew! Case quality is not what it used to be 😒)
I’ve decided this Boker will be my edc and will leave the Backpocket at home. Here are some pics, enjoy!
It’s me Cloud Elvengrail 🤗🐝
Grasp all your dreams in 2018! Happy New Year! 💥
😆 I’m a little late but was I was having such a merry time I forgot to post! Guys, have a Merry Christmas and a Wonderful New Year! 👍🏾❤️
My friend Dorian gave me this for Christmas and I am just beside myself, it is a genuine Swedish mess kit from the ’70s! 😁👍🏾
He had 3 of them and allowed me to mix and match parts so I have a very clean example 😎.
Mine is the one on the left; ty Dorian!
The tactical trend for the past 15 or so years has produced some very interesting knives that I have cautiously wielded but has left me unfulfilled and longing for knives of another age and what they represent.
In this age of Trump, pulling out a tactical knife sends all the wrong messages. I reject their militarism and mindless aggression. I choose old school Case and other blades of that era, even if they are now China-made. “Made in America” has been permanently soiled for me by the Trumpanzees.
This is a humble knife but beautiful and strong as well as finely made.
