When I started Florida Knife Group it was with the intention of identifying all the knife dealers and knife makers I could find so that those of us who love knives would know where to find knives in our own backyard. I’ve spent the last two years building the platforms for this group with this website, the social media, and adding all the dealers and makers I could find and those that wished to participate. Honestly? I’ve about burned myself out establishing a good base with the social media of this group and now it’s time to change things up a bit. The plan is to introduce you guys to those folks who have supported the group and the folks I’ve located in our own back yard selling and making knives. If you fit into these two categories or you know of someone who fits into these two categories please email me at email@example.com. I’d love to add them to the ever growing list of people all of you should know. If we are going to buy knives shouldn’t we support those that live right here in our beloved state? I think so!
Let’s jump this project off with FKG Member James Lundy. James owns J.L. Adventure Gear. Here’s what he had to say:
I’m James Lundy the owner of JL Adventure Gear. I’m a Florida native born in Titusville, FL. I have lived in Florida my whole life except for the four years I served in the Army with the 82nd Airborne Division at Fort Bragg in NC. I am a gulf war veteran and have trained in Georgia, North Carolina, Panama, Saudi Arabia, Iraq and Arkansas.
I’m a family man with two teenage daughters. We love the outdoors. I grew up roaming the woods of NE Florida when my girls where young I would share my love of the outdoors with them. We go to a lot of Florida State Parks and do different family “adventures” like hiking, kayaking, etc. I have always wanted to start my own business so I figured the best way to learn was by doing it. I started JLAdventureGear.com as a way to learn the eCommerce business and to have an outlet to share some of our family adventures. We provide name brand quality outdoor adventure gear at reasonable prices. We have a large selection of knives from all the big names. We are not Amazon or E-bay, but we are competitive on prices. You may find a cheaper price on Amazon or E-bay but do you absolutely know what your getting? You won’t get the personal attention and customer support that you will from us. I stand behind everything I sell. I have lofty dreams of one day opening a brick and mortar store.
If you guys are in need of gear give J.L. Adventure Gear a shot. I plan on ordering a few pairs of 5.11 shorts very soon. Check out his social media links below and give him a follow for regular deals. James decided that over the course of the next week Sunday March 20th – Sunday March 27th, 2016 you will be able to use the coupon code FKGJLAG10 good for 10% OFF the order total on any item on the website. It’s case sensitive so use all caps.
And if that wasn’t nice enough James is also giving away this badass Spyderco Endura. All you have to do is pay attention to Florida Knife Group on Face Book for details.
