If the moose say you're ok, that's good enough for me. Enjoy your new hat!

Loved the happiest moment story. Glad to hear you shrugged off the doctor's proclamations about your ability to do the things you love too.

@ Patrick, I am not the same Brent, though the similarities to my last role are remarkable...

Brent, I went out and bought the same Morakniv you have after reading your review. I was so impressed that I actually went and bought 4 more models and am in the process of field testing them. They really are great. Thanks for your great reviews.
