Not sharp knives, but chainsaws.

I prefer flaming swords, while listening to my ipod, at night, with no lights, wearing all black, on the wrong side of the street, on a 60mph road while taking the lane... and no helmet, it could get in the way..

Yes, how else can I get a manicure? I also juggle my helmet around trying to decide if I should wear it on my commute

No ... but I try to always carry a knife when I go kayaking. But there's rope involved...

I ride with scissors, as I found that running with scissors just wasn't dangerous enough.

And here I thought I was the only one. Sometimes I throw in a chainsaw just to liven things up a bit. Knives alone can be a bit dull.

Why would you need a light with flaming swords?

No, because it's way too risky. I'd be grounded for a week if the wife caught me taking our best knifes outside for a ride.
