Bloodwood. This one:
that musta been a viscous divorce.....mine was simply signing papers & checks. Sorry to hear that your's
was seemingly protracted & painful.
Glad yu made your discovery David.....
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.
Did she take the ice cube trays out of the freezer?
LOL, "what kind of sick bitch takes the ice cube trays...."
No, CJ she kept the whole fridge.
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 remember those. very sharp
As long as you're not texting.
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.
I just ordered up a new Case Custom in green Malachite, Mother or Pearl and Jet.
Thanks. Just got a shipping notice too, it's on the way - :)
Looks purdy.....you must have quite a collection
That's nice. I've got an old Case folder around here somewhere... but not decorated like that. :)
