    Carl, early in the process I had to make a list to exemplify the types of things I'd like to keep. I listed the major stuff, TV receiver, etc. It became THE list. anything that wasn't on the list I didn't get. None of the knives, save what I happened to be carrying, and a number of other little things. Stuff like wires connecting stereo gear, and their remotes - none of which I thought to include on the list were all lost.

    No biggie, I am way better and don't miss the small stuff all that much.

    anyway - thats all in the past, and really for another thread, but yes, it wasn't so nice as yours.

    I am insanely jealous.

    The wood inlays used to be only an annual limited edition, its really cool that you can get them all year now. Sooooo nice.

    I wore it whenever we were in the field. When I was on active duty a full scale field exercise would typically last 4-6 weeks and we go on 4, sometimes 5 a year. We would also have 'local' exercises that lasted 3-4 days, maybe 10 of those a year. So I carried the Gerber close to 180 days out of the year.

    Some years back I worked for a company that sold large polyethylene tanks. As part of my job I would routinely have to climb down in to these tanks to replace fittings or whatever. At the time I carried a fairly large Uncle Henry lock blade.

    Several times I was asked about the knife on my belt and my reply was always “at some point I’m going to get trapped in a tank and this knife is my way out. Of course the response was always “you don’t really think you can cut your way out with a pocket knife”. To which I replied “just hide and F&*($!~G watch how quickly I’m through the side of that tank”.

    I only had to do it once but that day I was glad I had a substantial knife on my belt. In this case had I not been able to cut my way out it could well have been weeks or maybe months before my corpse was discovered.

    I still have that old Uncle Henry and it's still razor sharp. A couple of years ago a co-worker of mine offered me absolutely stupid $$ for it but I declined his offer. I just kind of want to hang on to the knife that saved my bacon.

    Here it is:

    I still have the Porsche inlaid logo Swiss Army knife my sister brought back from a trip to Germany back in the mid 70's. I actually used it back then. Today it is a momento from my since passed sister.
