Flying today. I feel naked.
That seems funny -- and all too true.
Strange days, indeed. I prefer the times when they automatically gave you a little 4-pack of free cigarettes as you boarded the plane (!). Once, when I was in Florida, (pre-1970s) I bought a nice little Barretta .22 auto pistol in a Montgomery Wards Department store, just slipped it into my pocket, and carried it home like that on the plane....no muss, no fuss
Those were the days!
I wish I was born a couple or more decades earlier. In another thread someone mentioned 1980 as a general turning point in "how things were" versus "how they are now". I tend to agree.
Here's another of my regulars. It's a Spyderco from the 2" and under airline carry days ironically named the "Co-pilot".
Today`s sharp & pointy selection is a Viper Start....(a friend referred to it as "a SERIOUS gentleman`s knife")
Today was "Take your child to work" day for this Microtech Whaleshark....
Love the blade style of that smaller one. Ive got a cheap Kershaw with similar blade.
Yeah, I really like the blade-to-handle ratio on both of them....it gives you a LOT of useable knife in a relatively compact size.
Kickin` it OLD school today, with this little Stockman, the first knife I ever owned, and damn near as old as me. Truly surprised that I still have it after all these years....
I remember having a knife that very well could have been the same as yours. I lost track of it at least fifty(!) years ago.
I just picked up a couple of Kershaw knives.
They're made by Kershaw but an Al mar design. Eric
And here's a couple of Al mars I've had for a while.Eric
Mines a 4.5" stag knife.
Well....you know what they say here on the internet....
"Useless without pictures !"
Its a plain skinning knife w a ripping hook.
You can describe it verbally until the cows come home....we wanna see PICTURES !
Today, my daily ride along is a collaboration between custom maker Tom Mayo and Buck knives. Close to perfect for an EDC, it`s thin, light (titanium/S30V), extremely sharp, it pretty much disappears in your pocket.
Here's one of my favorites - Reate Horizon Ti with one of my custom machined beads.
