Céad míle fáilte (welcome) to 1all’s Pub (blog), where the beer is cold, the cigars are tasty, the craic (fun, entertainment, enjoyable conversation) is good and your humble proprietor will review knives and cigars (two of my personal favorite things) and share my point of view (i.e., rant!) on a variety of subjects (be they related to the knife and cigar hobbies or world events or politics or whatever–pretty much whatever I want to rant about).
But what is 1all’s Pub? Well, it’s not an actual pub/bar/place of business, but rather a home pub (Irish themed) that my wife and I converted our den into. As such, it has become my “man cave” complete with a bar, kegerator, small pub table and fireplace (admittedly fake). I’ve chosen to name my blog after my pub because my pub has always been a place where friends and family have gathered and where many great times and many a great conversation has taken place (about many of the same topics I will cover in this blog), so naming my blog 1all’s Pub seemed logical. Anyway, here’s a couple pics of my home pub and the namesake of my blog… 1all’s Pub!
A little about me (1all) just so you know where I am coming from. I am a typical American male in his mid-40s. Irish by descent, American by birth and glad for both. I lean pretty heavily on the conservative side of political and social issues, but with a significant streak of libertarian instinct thrown in for good measure.
Christian by birth and by personal faith, I am a supporter of Israel and the Jewish people. Additionally, I am a strong supporter and advocate of the founding principles of this nation–Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness! You will also find me a strong proponent of the 2nd Amendment and of the right of self-defense (whether by gun or otherwise). I have been a practitioner of the martial arts (Japanese jujutsu) for 21+ years and have been teaching it in a small, private dojo for the past decade.
Anyway, I could go on, but I think you get the picture. So if you can handle hanging out in a “conservative” pub and enjoy such topics as knives (e.g., Hinderer, Spyderco, Kershaw), cigars (e.g., Padron, Fuente, Punch) and don’t mind the occasional venture into the world of politics (maybe even some martial arts talk if the mood strikes me) then belly up to the bar and let me pour you a pint. Sláinte!
