    Here is my current desk collection. Just have to remember to mute and keep them off camera when I start playing!

    Yeah, just have to remember to mute when you start clacking or you'll hear some interesting comments :)

    With everyone WingFH there are a lot of background noises that aren't what you'd 'normally' hear. I've been WFH for a few years now and get a chuckle out of the dogs barking, kids screaming, cartoons in the background, road noise etc.. It can get pretty crazy with some of the overseas calls.

    Literally whatever is in my pocket. I am a Sales Manager at a Ford dealership. At one time my coworkers thought the sound of locks engaging was a problem with my computer... lol. This caused people to ask to “borrow” my knives to cut something ridiculous. I now carry a “Don’t tread on me” Victorionox as a loaner.

    They still have conferance calls?
    With the Internet, WiFi/G Networks, "smart" phones, tablets and laptops, I thought conferance calls were as obsolete in business, as the manual typewriter, room sized computers, punch card readers, and carbon copy paper. (anyone else remember those?)

    I don't remember what (if anything) I fidgeted with.
    Maybe my pencil or ink pen?
    I know I fidgeted with them in school when (not "if") I was bored in class.

    My last conferance call was at least 30 or 40 years ago. :)

    I eat pens if that helps but have never fidgeted with knives.

    Mostly I practice a smooth and fast draw of my finger-guns.
    I have 2 on me at all times that are equipped with excellent silencers when I end up shooting the phone.
    My desk phone is very advanced and instantly repairs itself, using similartechnology like you saw in Terminator II, but WAY faster. I got the phone for 5 bucks at a yard sale just outside Roswell, NM.

    I seldom fidget with knives or anything for that matter. The only time I might call something fidgeting is just after I get a new knife and I am discovering whether or not I like it as much as I think I should. In most cases, it is a ho hum thing.

    Nope, they are still very much used. Especially if there is information in a room that others should not see.

    That's nice looking. Did you make the scales?
