We (Doug and Brian) recently visited SHOT Show 2017 in Las Vegas. After the show we took some time to sit down in our hotel room and film a conversation about our highlights from the trip.
The highlights of the trip can be summed up in meeting some of the people that we (Doug and Brian) respect the most in the knife and gun world. These include: MMA fighters Royce Gracie and Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone, knife and weapons trainer Fred Mastro (Mastro Defense Systems), James Yeager (Tactical Response), Tom Krein (Krein Knives), Ed Schempp and Gayle Bradley at Spyderco Knives, and Duane Dwyer from Dwyer Custom Goods.
Apart from meeting these amazing people we also enjoyed seeing many new products and prototypes, the generosity of the people and companies who welcomed us like family, and the overall experience of seeing some of the best craftsmen and materials in the knife, gun, and outdoor world.
Just like so many of these hard-working individuals, we at CanYouHandlebar have a huge appreciation for using the highest quality materials to make a fantastic product. We're looking forward to traveling more in 2017 to spend time building relationship (and even filming) some of our favorite manufacturers!
