    Can you believe my doctors had the audacity to schedual an appointment at the same time as The Fun Friday sale? How rude and inconsiderate. I’m late, to boot, because of traffic.

    Oh well, had to put in an appearance for such a fine set of knives. Mike

    Awesome man! Glad you're happy :thumbsup: I took a split second to imagine what the ghost blue scales would look like on that beautiful satin field knife, and then imagined the look on my wife's face if I had bought three blades today :eek::eek::eek: I hope you enjoy them in good health sir, they are beauties.

    Man, you look her straight in the eye and tell her you’re “accessorizing”.
    Let’s see her argue with that...!

    I'm running out to buy a lottery ticket RIGHT NOW!

    Dynamite comes in small packages, and that's all I've got to say about that! :D

    Conversation with my wife from earlier today...

    Wife: You need to find a special project.
    Me: I already have one.
    Wife: What?
    Me: Working on my knife collection
    Wife: You're going to build something to hold your knives?
    Me: Nah.. just going to get more.
    Wife: <silence... no sigh, no death stare, no nuthin>
    My take.. that's all the permission I need. Worst case, I'll be sleeping in the dog house with 2 knives to fend off anything coming at me.

    That or she was already having the papers drafted and you just confirmed it was the right thing to do.

    The perfect silence is the most dangerous. You can read a sigh (how much intake of breath was there first). You can get a feel for a stare (is it just cold, or are one or both eyes just a little squinty?) Silence is bad, man.

    Things changed for me with my little stick of dynamite when I had the brilliant idea of buying her one for herself. Nice little fixed blade with beautiful Desert Ironwood scales...;)

    If you can't beat 'em, convert 'em. I like it.

    Yep. As embarrassing as it is for me to admit, that knife sees more use than any of my fixed blades. I carry and use a folder every day at my office job. But she runs a small business and always has flowers and boxes of inventory etc. to cut...
    Oh, and because it’s a jewelry business, the “accessorizing” claim was virtually impossible for her to argue with... :D
