Cool

I never go anywhere with A Knife.

I have two Buck Lockbacks that I wear, one on either hip.

Why?

I was doing maintenance on a processing line that included bagging machines that made their own bags from sheet plastic.

When they got jammed, I often had to cut out a lot of plastic and I never knew which hand would be free and which hand would be tied up holding a wad of plastic sheet.

{And they make great handles for pulling up my pants...}

I carry a knife (a Boker) that the NRA sent me some years ago in my pocket. It has several nice pointy blades that are good for small work like popping a tiny blister or digging out a splinter.

I have a very old and beaten up Case—It has a couple rough blades that I don't mind using to cut a wire or scrape something.....Something that would be ruinous to a good blade.

I used to have a Gravity blade that I liked to carry just to play with when I was bored. The blade was fairly flimsy, dull and not of the sort to be worth stropping and sharpening...

But it is pretty and shiny.

I don't know why, but I started leaving him at home.

I'd like to replace the Gravity Blade with a nice Balisong—but good ones ain't cheap and cheap ones aren't worth having. I want one with Mother of Pearl Grips if possible—probably have to go custom.

So at any rate, four knives is my bottom limit for walking around.

I had a friend who invariable sliced his sandwiches in half before eating. He always carried one dedicated knife that he used for no other purpose but to slice his sandwich—that way he always knew that it was clean and sterile.

"Silly"?.?.?.
