    My daughter too! Who wants scissors when you can get a knife?

    You're right. Can't believe I fell for Rachel's April Fool story about Whataburger giving away knives. Thought it was a great idea, but I should have realized that's not likely in today's environment. Maybe in the '50s or '60s.

    Gender specific stereotyping cuts both ways, Rachel! Way back when, I was content with dark blue scales on my Cub/Boy Scout knives, and didn’t give a hoot about the color of Girl Scout knives.
    Now, I’m thinkin (my wife says that could be trouble) that I should pick one up to match my latest guitar rehab that I painted Seafoam Green.
    Some of us probably need to remind our kids not to take their knives to school!

    Wasn't there a Johnny Cash song about that? "Don't take your knives to school, son, leave your knives at home, Bill...."

    Maybe it was guns. ;)

    I wish GEC would do another run of 68s. One of my favorite patterns.

    It is really cool that you still have your first knife GT :thumbsup: :cool:

    My first was a 2 blade Coca Cola knife that I have tried to find for years but fear it is lost for good.

    Hoping these three are lucky for my team tonight.

    An embarrassment of riches:
    And dragging this one behind me in my Radio Flyer little red wagon.
    What was that movie where W.C. Fields transformed milksop Bing Crosby into "Colonel Steele, the singing killer"? And had some tales to tell:
    "'I unsheathed my Bowie knife, and hewed a path through a wall of human flesh, dragging my canoe behind me'.
    'Where was the goat?'
    'Under my arm.'".

    Thanks Ron, back at you my friend :) :thumbsup:

    I actually missed that trip, must have been ill or something. Sheffield was awash with pocket knives in those days though, and my dad worked in a cutlery factory. The coin knives were very common, but I don't think I ever actually had one. I have collected old coins with matching dates for Stan a few times. Thank you very much :) :thumbsup:

    You would! :thumbsup: There was also a trip to a coal-mine, but only boys were allowed down the mine as the miners supposedly believed it was bad luck for a woman to go down a mine (it was certainly bad luck for the women and girls who had to work down them a generation or two earlier)! By the time that came round for my class though, the trip was cancelled, as the discrimination would have been unlawful by then. I wish they had cancelled our trip to the local sewage treatment plant too! :eek:

    I always think that is a very nice pattern James, nice photo of it too :) :thumbsup:

    The first knife I purchased with my own money was bought on a school trip in front of my teachers. It was a slip joint with a blade about 3 1/2 inches long :cool: :D :thumbsup:

    They did the same thing during the 1952 Coronation, every school boy in Sheffield received a Richards penknife, the girls got scissors o_O From what I've heard, the scissors probably lasted longer! o_O :rolleyes:

    Best wishes for a speedy recovery Harry :thumbsup:

    Great song! :D :thumbsup:

    Cool knife and pic Gev :) :thumbsup:

    Good luck Tom, those are three Bobby Dazzlers :) :thumbsup:
