By bringing his talents and experience to Lansky customers can expect the high-quality functionality and modern aesthetics that define his work, combined with Lansky Sharpeners unwavering dedication to quality. We are ecstatic to be working with Mikkel, said Lansky Sharpeners CEO Chris Fire. Mikkels designs are not only unique, but also redefine the acceptable uses of simple folding knives. By partnering together, well be able to open up a larger community of knife aficionados to Mikkels designs without them having to spend top dollar for one of his handmade custom knives. The partnership between Lansky and Willumsen resulted in producing three knives for 2014. The Responder X9 features a 12C27 Sandvik steel blade with G10 handles and full stainless steel liner lock and hardware. Made with rugged military use in mind, the Responder X9 was designed to perform in the harshest conditions and then come back for more.

Are any areas particularly strong? Weve got quite a lot from Dorset and Devon. Scotland is strong, too. Wales is due a visit so we can gather more Welsh goods. For Catherine in particular, traveling to find new work is really important. We dont take anything we havent seen, and we always visit the workshops of the makers before we stock them.

Men were mostly quiet with some occasionally humming the paratrooper anthem Gory, gory what a hell of a way to die, the traditional gallows-humor combat veterans use when confronted with potential mortality. The pilot eventually toggled on the green light indicating the approaching drop zone. The jump master shouted STAND UP over the unmuffled roar of the huge twin Wright R-1820 nine-cylinder radial engines. Paratroopers hooked their static lines to an overhead cable and shuffled forward toward the hatch then jumped into 150-mile-an-hour wind and prop wash. Within a second each static line pulled open the big parachute.
