I just got home from Illinois and noticed a package in the mail from Denmark.

It was gifts from Mads in Copenhagen…...an official marking tool from Denmark, a couple of leather strops for pocket knives, and a cute orange paper bird beautifully crafted by Mads himself.

I have tried out the strop and it works very well on my pocket knife. I did use the marking tool on a piece of wood and it does an excellent job of marking. It has two markers so you can set two dimensions at once.

Thank you so much, my friend. I’m glad your life is getting so much better and that your new place is very good for you!!!!! You deserve it!!!!!!...........some day we will drink a beer together!!!!!...........Jim
