And for me no trip to Jacksonville is complete these days without a stop in to another of my favorite knife shops, the Carefree Buffalo, which is devoted to items for "Modern Western Living." They are a William Henry dealer and over the past few years I have gotten several knives from them.
In a week's time, they will be offering a major William Henry event, but I got a small preview which comprised more WH knives than I have heretofore seen in one place. With some help I was able to compile a short list of half a dozen candidates for acquisition.
Than, although it has not yet been officially released, Joe Surges, the shop's owner was kind enough to show me a special edition he put together with the folks at WH, "The Carefree Buffalo Route 66." Joe said I was only the second client to see the knife and shortly thereafter it became mine.
