I was at the Home Depot this morning buy a length of plastic carpet runner. The young man was trying to cut the 2 foot wide plastic with his "utility knife" - box opening razor blade thing, but wasn't having much luck. So... I whip out my switchy little Boker and slice that plastic sheeting just as slick as opening an envelope. The young man sort of jumped back when the blade appeared and then exclaimed "Now, that's a man's blade." I wished him Merry Christmas and smiled.
