Thanks.

Yeah, the big one is my fave just to look at and hold. I don't take it anywhere. The only one that goes out is the smallest one.
It does not make me seem like a crazed axe murderer.

Pics or it didn't happen!

Seriously, I hope it wasn't to bad a cut. What BM did you pick up? I have a Griptilian and after a couple of years with it, I STILL have to remember it is an axis lock. I so prefer liner locks. I now have a Sebenza for EDC.

I got the Griptilian too. I originally went for the pink mini one for the proceeds go to breast cancer but they only had the brown, black and green. I got the black one. Here's where I put the link: https://www.bikeforums.net/showpost.p...51&postcount=4

How do you like it so far? I got the full size one - it felt better in the hand and more balanced for some reason.

I can relate Siu.

About 6 weeks I was opening a bag of tortillas with my newly sharpened knife, when... owiee. I was in my car at the time and good thing I carry a first aid kit. Sharp knife and fingers are never a good combination.

dull knives and fingers are an even worse combination. I'll take sharp knives over dull any day.

this morning I was cleaning out our basement storage shed and bringing a bunch of cardboard boxes to the trash - the building super came in and asked me if I could cut them up so they could break 'em down and bundle them before taking them to the curb....I said "sure," and told him I would have already done so, only i didn't have a knife on me.* He told me he left me a knife to use by the pile of boxes = I expected a cheap xact-o or a box cutter, but it was a very cheap and flimsy bread knife - sort of the ginsu sham-wow special type you get at the 99 cent store. Let's just say whatever edge it had when I started was well gone by the third or fourth box. I worked quite a sweat up by the time I was done....it was like chopping down a tree with a nail file.


*I should add that had this been pre-9/11 I would surely have had a knife on me. I don't carry much anymore due to surprise inspections and bag searches, and it pisses me off.

OTOH as a chef we have a belief among my chef friends, that until you cut yourself with your knife, it's not really yours...

What happens if you cut yourself on someone else's knife? Do you get to keep it?

Well, I'm guessing the fact that you are still typing answers here means the finger is still attached. That means the knife needs sharpening.

*looks at finger*

The first application of superglue came off with the shower last night. It's still hurting pretty bad, is swollen and I can see the edges of the injury are red. It's probably infected from the oils on the blade.

After I rinsed it I put alcohol in it and then hydrogen peroxide. Dried it and then the superglue.

But it still hoirts. Bad.
