Hello from Arkansas

Post by dmgibs1 » Tue Jan 21, 2020 3:18 pm

I am enjoying learning AAPK. I inherited my fathers collection and am using this site to find out what it is and why he loved it. Gathering a new appreciation. Thank you all for the great info. Donna

Welcome to AAPK. Glad to have you aboard. There are no stupid questions on AAPK, only unasked ones.

Hi Donna. ::welcome:: Feel free to ask all the questions you want. If you have questions about a specific knife, good clear photos, especially of the tang stamp will certainly help. I'm assuming that since you inherited your fathers collection it means he has passed on. Very sorry to hear of that.

Hopefully, by engaging in dialogue here about his collection, you can gain a deeper understanding of why he enjoyed knives so much. We're glad you came along and welcome you.

Before I found this site, I didn't know what that stamp was called. ::facepalm:: And yes, ALL dogs go to heaven, it is the people heaven is picky about!

Hi and welcome.

My in-laws were down in the little town of Kirby, 'bout an hour south-west of Hot Springs.
Nice area, albeit too hot for me to settle there :mrgreen:
Take care and God bless,

I am in the NW corner in the mountains, I don't think I could survive down there. With climate change, I guess we will all be there soon.

I am in Eureka Springs, NW corner of Arkansas. We are considered the poor man's Hot Springs. A little tourist trap in the mountains. Thanks for the "Welcome'.
