    That's funny. An easy trap to fall into on many levels. One of our Christmas evenings is with my ladyfriend's sons and daughters and her grandkids. Last couple years I had a medium SAK (which I of course eagerly pulled out) which was used to open all the toys. This year, I selected a nice medium Stockman like a girl getting ready for the prom thinking it would get some admiring comments. When I, probably all too eagerly, pulled it out, I got a patient shake of the head as in "No, we got this."

    So, you can be the creepy knife guy, even with a grandpa knife.

    Oh, do go away. There is a cure for ignorance, it's called research. [Reading sensationalist tabloids doesn't count, I'm afraid.]

    If I actually need a knife I just pull it out, use it and blunder through. Screw their feelings.

    If I get gasps or comments then if those same people ever need a knife in the future then I'll mess with them by saying something jokingly like "Sure I have one .. but I wouldn't want you to feel unsafe if I took it out of my pocket. You might stoke out or something" (to give them a glimpse into how their hoplophobia is viewed by others as total cowardice).

    Nice to be the one known to have a nice knife, if needed, but I don't flaunt it. Of course they give a strange glance when I strop it on a piece of cardboard.

    I take this view for the most part, tradesman or not. If they need a knife, carry a knife. Don't ask me to use mine. Go find a scissors or utility knife.... The exception I make is when the job is MY job and time is crucial. But I will still suggest that they buy themselves a knife they are comfortable with.

    I don't think I resemble this at all, but my wife and two children disagree entirely . . .

    That's me, but only after someone uses scissors to open a package and cut themselves.

    Oh, for heaven’s sake. Good for you, old chap, many congratulations. I can buy it too, I just need to write a few words down, fortunately I am literate. Stupid little boys, and I use that phrase to apply not just to stupid little boys, but also to stupid, ignorant, big boys, have been chucking corrosive substances in people’s faces to rob them or just hurt them. Such is life. Hey man, come over and have a beer with me, see if you think that you want acid thrown in your face, disfiguring you for life, by some little scrote (slang - scrotum). Nah. Neither of us would want that. I would want you to keep your good looks. Take it easy, mate. And stop posting sensationalist BS about my country, somewhere I’m guessing you have never visited.

    I would fancy nothing else more than discussing this further over a hot bowl of smoking Bishop! My grandfather was dying to visit the UK but unfortunately only flew over it! Good day sir!
