wow.

we are cranking out handles, plus the Marines attacked my shop and gasp! cleaned and organized it. i am paying them a lot, but it's not much of a gamble, as they do everything perfectly or better, and in my experience, if you make a proper hawk, it will sell.

i was going to complain, but then one Marine was going to work cleaning the mill - he has nefarious plans for a project obviously - and i keep finding everything, most of which i forgot that i had.

3 days, almost sixty 2 foot handle blanks made perfectly.

one of the vets had five extra minutes so he grabbed my hundred pound tomato plants and moved all eight of them upstairs onto my deck.  Shocked he will never be able to buy beer in my presence again. us old guys need the help.

that is very good. goal is to make 400 handle blanks within a month, mostly in the 30 - 36 inch range, some longer, some shorter. get a bank of them going for lower prices and faster turn around to our clientele.

i bought a bunch of glass and resin with the first sale we had right away. just got another unrelated order for a quick $2K, so that will give me cash to pay the guys with. if we hit our goal in thirty days, i am sure a couple of the vets will move on and a couple new ones might come on, and then there are a couple hard-ass youngsters that might stick for a while, which is great, i really like them.

we lost our Air Force guy, and i (ahem) had a lesson in communication with our Army brother - he is licking his wounds and hopefully will be back. big baby.

mostly Marines now, which should probably make me feel bad, but i gotta tell the brethren watching, on the few times that i even have to speak to them, i only have to say things once, even if it is about something that has to be remembered exactly for a week, being punctual, etc. - and it's not because they are my culture, it's because they are the CORRECT culture.

it ain't braggin' if ya can DO IT.

shoot, move, communicate. that's Marine Corps.

and that's enough.


Navy side is going strong so far, i like their style, especially since they obey Marine barks so well.  Grin


wish us luck.

Semper Fi.

Good luck and Semper Fi.


Does that mean the price of a VecHawk is going down?

we are going to try to crash the price down for a basic hawk, yes.

that's the goal. if we can keep selling them, we can keep the price down.

if ya can, talk to other buddies about it, the more we can do, the more we can do for them.

it's helping vets. these are sharp customers and good guys.

i certainly understand if folks don't want to participate, i just want the word out, no harm done, someone else will.

any Cold Steel tomahawk head will do. maybe you could customize one for yourself, make it extra special.

we are a little short on heads right now, which is typical this time of year after the SHOT SHOW.

Marines are about to storm the castle this a.m.

coffee pot is on. pork chops and eggs are sizzling. Coronas are chilling. turtle wants a finger.

we are gonna kick some serious ass today.


we are gonna beat the heck out of the shop and make some handles. maybe build a porch if supplies arrive today.

these guys are animals.  Grin

....'gonna push the ponds back to the far side of the back yard and elevate them about four feet, as i have done with one already - we are experimenting for the desert shop that i hope to develop ASAP. - if we do that, gonna LALO (can't HALO, we gotta go in hot, or we will be executed before we are recognized by His Dudeness) into venerable-elder dude's compound with twenty of my favorite snowflake triggerers, grab all the gold, silver, lead and steel, stick dude, three multi-lingual stripper nurses, and his recliner in the Sea Hawk, whisk him to our compound and make him king, while we use a combined captured labor force of illegals replevined from the local border patrol road checkpoint to bring everything else and then make lunch for every buddy.

venerable-elder dudeness will be up in the saddle between the two nuke shield hilltops, directing until he is 200 years old, then we will have his clones take over while he gets renovated for our breeding program....

that's the way we roll, you can't die until you are relieved.

whoops, i hear my favorite Harley pullin' up....

that was an awesome day.

we made a bunch of epic 30 inch hawk handles.

evidently it's supposed to rain tomorrow, so sadly, to maximize this glorious weather beforehand, i am going to run downtown and have a double date with Saint Erica and my EOD buddies while we watch our offspring do parkour training as we eat fish tacos and ...well, hell, isn't that enough? ...no, we must drink more Coronas, because fish tacos!

....and it's all dude's fault, i must keep up.

Whew, I was worried you didn't do that intentionally. I know you like to keep everyone guessing!
