Greetings from Houston, y'all!

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody, and Happy New Year!

 

I have been browsing this site on and off since I stumbled across it in 2016 while looking for information on the Mil-K 818 pocket knife. I can already tell that the amount of collective wisdom on this site is amazing!

 

My primary interest is military aviation, survival gear, and knives, especially pocket knives and multitools. While I don't have a large collection (or the budget for one!), I have already secured two MIL-K 818's and I have a few other bits of U.S. gear. I'm a mechanical engineer (2017 OU grad), so I admire and appreciate well-made equipment and I try to find gear that is still useable. I also enjoy building model aircraft and vessels, although I haven't built any in several years.

 

Anyway, I decided that it was time for me to jump into the U.S. Militaria pool. I look forward to participating in lots of interesting discussions and acquiring new knowledge.

 

Happy New Year, y'all!

Welcome. The folks here are certainly knowledgeable and ready to share that knowledge. I've been saved several times from bad purchases. Enjoy.
