    I think k that the judges must’ve read Nathan’s piece one the Bowie because the award in the fighters category apparently went to a Bowie knife!

    I have a feeling that the judges panel is more biased toward handmade pieces than CNC machined, even though the handmade pieces may comprise of several different stuck on pieces!

    A dagger isn't really a fighter exactly, but I'd much rather it in a fight over a Bowie...

    My mom used to keep them under the sink in a paper bag if they weren't ripe yet...but sometimes we'd forget about them. Maybe the bookshelf is a better place?

    From Wikipedia:pSo it Must be true:D

    A dagger is a knife with a very sharp point and usually two sharp edges, typically designed or capable of being used as a thrusting or stabbing weapon.[1][2] Daggers have been used throughout human history for close combat confrontations,[3] and many cultures have used adorned daggers in ritual and ceremonial contexts. The distinctive shape and historic usage of the dagger have made it iconic and symbolic. A dagger in the modern sense is a weapon designed for close-proximity combat or self-defense; due to its use in historic weapon assemblages, it has associations with assassination and murders. Double-edged knives, however, play different sorts of roles in different social contexts. In some cultures, they are neither a weapon nor a tool, but a potent symbol of manhood; in others they are ritual objects used in body modifications such as circumcision.[4]

    you'd be shocked how many things mustard can be used for ... Jonny's right about using it on stings ...

    if you ever have bad legs cramps a spoon full of mustard will get rid of them quickly ... pickle juice works to but mustards faster I think ...

    people wonder why I carry mustard packets in a first aid kit ... well now ya know a couple reasons ...
