UFB!

Went over to him and explained that it was a $400 knife and that knives are for cutting. He had no idea that knives cost more than $15 at Walmart. Lesson mine, I will never hand my good knives to anyone, if Jesus himself snags his robe on a thorn tree, No.
Not a knife... but once I loaned out my chainsaw to a neighbor; so he could cut down a tree for a above ground pool. Went over a couple of hours later to see the progress, and he complained that the chainsaw was not cutting well anymore. The chainsaw's bar/chain was covered in dirt because he was now trying to use it to cut the tree's roots out of the ground...

Some people are absolutely stupid. And ignorant.

Benchmade Contego clipped in my right pocket and a Dalton Battle Dragon on my left side. At work, Gerber's manual 06 plain blade, replaces Dalton.

I love my contego blade, materials, and lock, but hated the handle originally. Knocking down the high points to allow your thumb to ride on the blade, and knocking down that bump in the middle of the handle realllllllllllllly helps make it an entirely new knife.

Great custom-grind job smoke, the hump doesn't bother me but I'll certainly keep your idea in mind.

Wow, I carried one of those for years. It fell out of my pocket someplace on the D.C. metro. I'll have to get another one to drop in a pocket, they are a great pocket knife!!

I have been going to many of those places lately. I hate having to take the walk of shame back to my car.

I will offer a 'guess' as to why more folks don't carry knives. About 5 guesses, actually. One guess went into a trash can outside the federal building in Baltimore when I needed to get a copy of my DD214 from the MD Veteran's Administration. One guess went into a trash can outside the National Archives in DC when I attended the defund rally a few years back and realized I had time to stop and actually see the D.O.I, B.O.R., and US Con. in-person. One guess went into the trashcan outside the courthouse on Bosley Avenue in Towson when I got my marriage license. A couple other guesses into trash cans outside other buildings protected my metal detectors and armed guards. Post 9/11 BS. Cheap ones break or won't stay in the locked open position. Good ones that won't break or cut off your finger when the 'lock' fails are too expensive to trash when you realize you forgot to put your knife in the glove box and already paid the $20 parking and choose to lose the $15 knife instead of the $20 parking or walk 5 blocks each way to your car and back from the 'security checkpoint'.

Sorry, but this brings to mind "fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me." Fool me 5 times... I don't even know what that is!

I'm not perfect though - I've failed to plan a couple of times. First time, I just hid my knife around the back of the government building I was going into, then retrieved it when I was done. No sweat. Second time, I just walked the few blocks back to the car. Maybe I'd feel different if the knife in question was $15, but I'm not throwing away a Spyderco Manix 2.
