Glad I came in to visit my fellow co-workers today, and to also check out the threads since I am on vacation until the New Year.
Got to reply to this one before leaving.
You know all those pesty clam packaged items that are sealed so well you need a HEAVY DUTY TOOL to open them with. Well, my twin boys got stereo walkman style radio/cassette players from there Aunt and Uncle. Had to whip out my SOCOM M/A to open these with. Every one's eyes lite up as though I had a weapon in my hand. I was able to open those pesky clam packs with ease.
Also had a tough ribbon on one of my gifts, used this knife again. Hardly touched the ribbon with the blade, and it was off.
I can't figure out why so many run afraid of a little bit larger knife or blade. A small knife can do just about as much damage to a person as a large one can. They both can cut you if they they are just as sharp and if taken in the right place on your person. But, yet people still have that terror in their eyes when a big blade is pulled out.
You would think after all the years that I have been accumulating knives, this wouldn't be such a big deal.
Maybe I have a sick humor here, but I find it kind of fun to see their eyes get as big as my knife blade!
Take care, gotta get back home now before the wife thinks I am in love with my job here at work.....
