I have a very similar knife. It's locked in a drawer and I haven't cut myself yet.

Well, except the day I got it. But that's why it's locked in the drawer.

Just so you know, I'd never hear of "Scottoiler" and i'd never seen it posted on these pages. I had to go out and track it down on the internet. I can't imagine a lot of cyclists going for that...

I bought a 2002 OCR-3 and spent a season in Sora before the upgrade to Ultegra. If it wasn't for the startup price being so reasonable, I never would have gotten into road cycling.
