Been on the Road lately.
I was at a Sheriif's show in Santa Fe, New Mexico last week and will be heading to Utah later today for another Sheriff's show. Usually we just sell the Sheriff's knives but I decided to bring some of the Ninja Stuff to the show and see what they thought.
First of all I have to say I should have brought more. I brought some nice swords and sold out what I brought and ended up shipping a few more when I got back. They took all the throwing knives I brought (about 24) and I sold out of several other items. The great thing is the calls the office was getting after the show.
My main focus with them was the $150.00 Proelia knife. Almost every one that picked it up commented on what a smooth mechanism it had using the ball bearings and how it felt and looked like a $300 knife. I sold out of the smooth handle one (20) and only had two of the rippled handle ones left.
These Sheriff's are usually incredible cheapskates ( the tow truck drivers are the spenders) so I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by the reaction.
On a side note I was able to get a Jiu Jitsu session in. Rolling at 7000 ft is now joke. Here is my other blog writing about that. t.
