I cut the Valentines Day cake

Oct 14, 1998
I had to cut the Valentines Day cake with my Tactical Folder. I wasn't sure whether I should smile sheepishly or frown or what...

We went to Jerry's Subs to celebrate, but didn't take a proper knife for cake cutting. I was forced to use my discreetly carried knife to cut the cake. I believe I was somewhat embarrassed, but have somewhat mixed feelings.

Has anyone else ever had to do something really dumb like this? I hope I'm not alone. If I am, it serves me right for doing such a dumb thing.
I used my Ascent to cut bagels the other day, but it is my daily carry knife and is expected o perform such duties. Worked real well. I hear the Civilian makes a terrible bagel cutter...I wonder how well the Outsider would do?

I do not understand what would be embarrassing about it. Perhaps if another knufenut saw that there was frosting caked around your thumbstud?

You got it. It wasn't really long enough to reach the middle of the cake. There was frosting around the thumb stud. I did the best cleanup I could in the establishment bathroom.

Looks ok, and still opens the same. I think it survived. As you say, a daily carry should be expected to perform this kind of duty.

I believe the Outsider would have cut the cake in half without touching the tang. The real trick would be to spare the cake holder and table underneath.
