Suppose you have a friend who (believe it or not) does not want to get into very many knife fights.  Here's the perfect gift.  It says loud and clear whenever it's drawn in front of world-class Kentucky knife fighters, "I'm a lover, not a fighter."  The handsome 7-function knife (not shown actual size unless perchance you happen to be viewing it full screen on a screen which happens to be 11.66" across) that you'll receive will be just like this one except that it will come beautifully appointed with durable plastic handles engraved with the words Dry Branch Fire Squad --SECURITY SYSTEM (like the ones shown below in miniature unless you have a reeeally big computer screen [math computations not yet completed]). Note that the knives below are shown with an attractive legal pad in the background,which is something you may see a lot of in the future if you're not careful how you use the knife. The cost is only $10.00 plus $2.00 for S & H.


Send orders to Dry Branch Fire Squad, P.O. Box 404, Cotopaxi, CO 81223.  Allow a passle of time for

delivery; the "handlers" are frequently "on the road" trying to make music.  You can pay by check or money order.  We regret that we can no longer accept credit card information through the mail or email; banks are going to card present accounts for small businesses like ours.  Simply enclose payment with your order. If ordering more than one item, the total S & H is still just $2.00 per order--no matter how many items you order. 


We appreciate your business.  We don't need the money, but the people we owe have assured us that they do.
