    This was excellent! My wife came over and read it, said it sounds like a conversation we would have, and that she likes your wife :D

    No pics (sorry), but I cut some smoked chicken and an apple for lunch today with my L08. Recycled pic, just for show. I must say, this thread has become a very interesting version of the knife workout thread. Maybe after the giveaway we should start creative knife challenges just for fun.

    Yes Vince, this was just tongue-in-cheek, I have always completed these duties when called on, I find it rather interesting.

    As have I, I'm always being chastened by my better half about some of my knife related idiosyncrasies... Of which there are many.

    Not too much today. Biggest tasks were liberating an HDMI cable from this zip-tie and opening an Amazon envelope.
    Wished the blades had a little more aggressive point for the packaging. Seems like the buffing they got when it was “pocket worn” may have rounded them a bit. Probably nothing some time on the stones won’t fix.

    Went and picked up a chunk of leather today at Tandy after work. Trying my hand at some basic pocket slips to go with the winners. First one came out a little short... More practice required ;)

    Getting ready to do some myself, Mike! Looking good!:thumbsup:
    Beautiful Lambsfoot, as always, Harvey!:) Looks like a "fruitful " carry!:D:rolleyes: (I can hear the moans out there):D

    Isn't there an old saying..."another day, another doctor", or something like that...
    Patiently waiting for the Doc to come in.
    Then the Spearhead side helped me with the manly task of opening up a box!

    I love and use my knives, but for the life of me, I can not understand the desire/need to use a pocket knife for culinary duties, except in the field or in emergencies and the occasional fruit opening. I would no sooner use a pocket knife blade as a screwdriver or pry bar. I have culinary tools for culinary uses, and avoid eating at "restaurants" that lack knives needed at the table. But that is a personal opinion and y'all do as you need. (If I tried to use a pocket knife to prepare a meal, Miss Norma would know that senility was onset. But, that's me.)



    I'm new to the system, but it seems really good. We hunt farm ponds and tributaries of the Potomac River. I need to be able to adjust weights and decoys, so I'm using snap swivels at the decoy and weight.

    I understand the feeling, but I saw your reply that you do serve. KUDOS to you! It is our civic duty and a privilege of participating American justice. If we do not serve, how can justice and democracy continue in America?

    Preparing to embark on day 3 of the challenge. At 2.5 days into carrying just this one knife I'd say that so far I haven't found anything I could complain about in regards to the knife. Performs well for a cheapo knife although I haven't had any
    demanding cutting task to test it with yet.:thumbsup: cheapo - 1.jpeg

    I know for me it is a matter of opportunity—I don’t have many non-culinary opportunities to cut, so I rotate preferences between kitchen cutlery and pocket cutlery. Today I cut some ham for my wife’s breakfast.
