    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 :)

    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".

    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....

    That's great! :thumbsup:

    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.

    Hey
    I just picked up a couple of Kershaw knives.
    They're made by Kershaw but an Al mar design. Eric

    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.
