    I'd swear that's a theirs penny knife.

    And it looks like some kinda big ol' recurve hanging on the wall those guys are guarding.

    I like Kyle. He marches to the beat of a different drum. And he likes bright green. Anybody that likes bright green can't be all bad. :)
    Though one has to wonder what the point of having a folder you don't close would be...

    that's a mighty big gap there between the support and the belt. May want to think about closing it up so that it won't grab your hand or finger.

    Thanks for the photo

    Its made to break apart in the event of an accident. It wouldn't work all close in. Its just a hand rest, not a work rest.

    BUT. This stuff is dangerous. Get your Fiddlebacks while I still have hands. Once they get torn off the prices will go up.

    Between the dust, epoxy amines, and now a buffer, I've got my concerns.... Just keep Phillip off the ladders...

    I use it to cut the tape off the scales after I'm done with drilling. It's sharp and if it gets beat up it take about two seconds to bring it right back. I also use it to trim the scales if there is a burr holding them up and making them not sit flat while I'm drilling....I'm trying to save the mileage on my real folder I carry :D

    (Belated Thanks. I couldn't place the swedge with the relative handle size-- forgot about the 'frog!)

    ... In which a slow and growing remembering was catalyzed, and panic began to rise, even before reading the following:

    OH NOES!!!!!

    One the way home from the (wonderful, too good, [email protected]d-now-I-want-a-BLUE-Bowfinger-Joe) Open House, I visited a closest friend in Durham before heading home. Flooded by all the super-good interactions Sat-Sun, I 100% forgot about the lanyard bead-- SINCE NOVEMBER-- until @Lady1911's post above, and 150% panicked when @VANCE's post confirmed the best/worst. Oh, my brain.

    HOW TO FIND THE BEAD NOW?!

    I scrambled through Everything in the house, every bag and container I'd taken with me to NC, every zipped, buttoned or fastened pocket in every article of clothing I'd worn those two days, the bottom of the washing machine....

    [​IMG]

    I re-remembered securing the bead when Phillip gave it to me-- what a tremendous gift, even cooler because it matched the EDKarda I'd won from him in a recent Giveaway-- but not What Happened Next.

    ... I wouldn't be writing this had I not looked Again (and again and again), until:

    As it turns out, after the Open House, back at the hotel, I had carefully zipped the bead into an interior pocket of a knapsack, easy to overlook the first 5 or 18 times searching that particular bag.

    Oh, my little heart. BUT HERE IT IS:

    Thanks, again, Phillip(!).

    Yeah, it sorta does, but it's still cool, and I'm still grateful. o_O

    I look forward to having it attached securely to the EDKarda, for all good reasons. :confused: :cool:



    We now return you to your regularly-scheduled programming.
