Two weeks ago I had some fun with @aleks.jank, who offered help in taking a headshot needed for the student registration. She called me an Angel back then, a compliment I find unjustified, but I’m very grateful for (cheesy, I know!)
This set, however, is a good depiction of what the beginning of my PhD journey looks like 3 weeks in.
New faces, familiar places and lots of good hopes for the next 3.5 years. Let’s see where I ultimately gravitate 😉
On the Heath Ledger stage, Director Jeffrey Jay Fowler and Set & Costume Designer Alicia Clements were buzzing to share details with Black Swan subscribers about ‘In The Next Room, or The Vibrator Play. “The play has new meaning in 2018”. Previews this Sat 20 Oct, ticket link in bio.💑 🍆💫
So the Perpetua is a pretty cool knife. I've taken some guff for calling it Griptilian-esque but, hey, it is. Maybe people would be less triggered if I said it was more like the old HK Axis...which itself was very much like a Griptilian, only better. The Perp is slightly smaller, similar in materials, locking mechanism, decent ergonomics with jimping that just falls a little short- just like the HK. Overall fit and finish is pretty good...YouTube talking points like blade centering and action are fine, but you're better off asking someone who really cares about such things. The blade finish and grind on this example are beautiful with swooping, Insigno-ish geometry. I love gray but I go back and forth on the monochromatic-ness. Navy would've been cool. I find the recessed (a la Cold Steel) and very plain pocket clip an interesting choice in this age of deep carry trendiness, but it works very well and is easy to repocket one handed and without much thought. I don't have enough experience with Nitro-V to comment about its performance but the name sounds cool. Anyway, there's your pocket review. Oh yeah, @the_lawnranger, thanks for letting me check this out!! 👍🏽😉😁🤸🏽♂️
