Well, my HHBL called me late this afternoon and when I answered the phone, all he said was, "I love it. And you can tell all those guys forget it, I'm keeping you."

It turns out that he has NEVER had a pocket knife. This is his very first one. And he needed one. He said he is always having trouble at work trying to open stuff. He is just delighted with it. And he likes the greyish color of the handle - he also said he likes the color it is even better than the blue. Whew. (good move on his part!)

Thank you, every single one of you KnifeKnuts, for your patience and help so that I could give my HHBL the perfect first Christmas present. (sigh).

thank you thank you thank you.

Hi Judy, I sure am glad he liked the knife.
Did you say he loved his Christmas present? Seems a little early for Christmas, or have I been asleep longer than I thought?
Merry Christmas, and have a wonderful 2001!

Alright, Judster, the first episode is over. What are you planning for now? Something for yourself? Something custom? A sharpener? Hey, this sport is bleeding all of OUR disposable income, how 'bout you?--OKG

Keith,

Yes, Christmas did come a little early this year. We won't see each other at Christmas (he's up north and I'm down south) because we are spending time with our respective families, etc. etc. And I wanted him to have it for Christmas. I mailed it on Monday, thinking he would be lucky to get it by this coming Saturday. But since he got it yesterday, of course he HAD to open it right then!!!

It's just so nice to know that I was able to introduce him to his first pocket knife. And I couldn't have done it right without the help of the KnifeKnuts!

yes.... now a knife for me..... I have seen several that I really liked - now I just have to go back and research and figure out which ones they were!

I like the 940 - definite possibility. Maybe a Cold Steel of some sort. I also liked the little Cricket. Or maybe it was the Calypso Jr?

I also would like to find out more about that bra knife.

Maybe a different neck knife than the one I wear around the house and in the yard. One I could wear at work as a "tool."

My previous boss, who always carried a pocket knife - wouldn't even allow me to use an exacto knife because he thought I might hurt myself (*******). Of course I never got rid of the exacto and I still use it all the time. But he went out and bought me some of those plastic sliding cutter things that you break off one tip as you go. Like I couldn't cut myself with that if I wasn't paying attention!

A garter dagger sounds great. where might I obtain such a knife? I will *assume* that the garter to be used is not the typical garter the grooms removes from the bride's thigh with his mouth......

For the serious garter carry in you, contact maker Bud Nealy of Stroudsburg, PA. He has a model called the "Belladau" I believe. High end stuff but sure to raise some eyebrows when going for the draw!

Anyone know how I can contact Bud Nealy? I went to the links page, but got a message that said it could not locate that web address.

I should probably start a new topic for this.

No doubt about it. Judy is hooked. It's a dead giveaway when you start talkin' customs. Welcome aboard, fellow Knife Knutt! You are definitely one of "us" now. Be prepared, though, to go without food and sacrifice all disposable income to your habit.

Hi there Judy,
In reference to the garter belt knife you might want to post this as a seperate subject.

Not too long ago, one of the guys posted a picture of his wife sporting her new garter belt knife.

I would direct you to the post if I could only remember the member or the subject.

I think that it was in the old general discussion forum??? But I'm not sure.

It sure was one sweet looking rig she had. I know many would be interested to hear about this subject.
After all, the BFC forumite population is about 99% male?!?!?
And as I'm sure that you know, men sure do love those garter belts and I imagine that this crowd would love 'em even more if they were sporting sharp pointy objects as well!!!
