Just remember it takes about 2 weeks to get all the benefits.  I'm going to get the shingles vaccine too.

When I had the annual "wellness physical" the Medicare pays for my doctor said I should get the Shingles shots (there are two of them now given about a month apart).  The old shot was only 50% effective and the new one is supposedly 70% effective.  At $178 per shot which medicare doesn't cover it ought to be a bit better than 70% effective.

I don't know what ws paid, but I doubt it was full retail... ya didn't did ya woodsorrel?
  Which might be what you'd do at a brick and mortar hands-on, eyeball selection rare-purchase...

I tend to agree that two blemishes are a bummer, especially if the extra fee of return shipping can free all buyers remorse. Its not mine and I'm only looking at pictures, but the first one bugs me more than the second. But with the name of Super Gold Powder Steel, correcting the inconsistency on your hone is none too easy.

Woodsorrel, you have some excellent photos there. I am somewhat surprised by the width of the secondary bevel you show so well. Does the TK3 not share the convexity of the F1/TK2? As a folder I could understand why. Maybe there is none(flat) or a little(pretty flat) geometry to the grind? your pics made me go look at my tk2 and there is just the shimmer of microbevel. Much closer to the "flawed" section in width, so I figure the geometry is just way different.

I don't discourage my Parents from theirs. I'm super-young early 50s. 4 days sick is like a vacation and the soups...I'll usually fake sick to get my wife to make me a real deal bone broth chicken soup
   I let her think it works like magic

Michael made the old-fashioned, garden-variety F5 NEBRASKA tornado look like the proverbial 'fart in a whirlwind!' :shocked:    Makes me believe IT'S NOT TOO BAD here, after all. ;)

Well the scope of the destruction of a big hurricane is stunning.  But I rode out a tornado in a root cellar in IL when I was young.  We got a glimpse of it roaring across a corn field towards us.  As they do, this one was a near miss on our land,  but destroyed our neighbors operation.

I'd rather not experience either again.

Count me in as a member of the 'me, too' movement, also. :shocked: :lol:    I've kept an item or two that I wasn't completely satisfied with and always regretted it.  You end up seeing only the flaws (no matter how small) instead of the merits......and it never goes away.  For that kind of money they should be able to deliver. 8)

I've never had one. However; I did have had the influenza once. I see it as a challenge, a test of ones immune system and hygienic practices.

I got the flu 5-6 years ago.  I ran a 101-104 degree temperature in the evenings for 4 days, could barely breathe for a week and couldn't cough any of it up.....thought I?d reached the end of my rope.  Never again, if something as simple as a flu shot will keep it at bay or help relieve symptoms! :-\

Good idea!  Take it from a shingles 'veteran'......you don't want 'em! >:(    The flu vaccine just became available here last week, I KNOW because I went to the clinic and requested it week before last. :shrug:
