    I have a Zero Tolerance 0300, cool knife to be sure.

    This one fellow who looks like he's done some bad stuff in his life popped it open, grabbed the handle, brandished it a bit and said, "Man, you could cut someone's liver out with this."

    Got the knife back from him right quick!

    How about you? What's the craziest thing someone said to you about one of your knives?

    =====

    Edit: Actually the fellow said something even a bit more outrageous, which was "Man, you could dig someone's liver out with this." I wonder where he came up with that idea; don't really want to know.

    My friend asked to borrow my knife, a FFG Delica 4. I asked why and he said he wanted to use it to pry a nail out of a board. WTF? I told him to try to cut an apple with a hammer while he's at it.

    That one is nuts, to be sure.

    I've heard similar things, but not exactly that one. I just tell them there's this knife forum where some of the guys have over 600 knives... they're collectors. Ever hear of collectors, as in stamp collectors, coin collectors, gun collectors and so on? :D

    Was having a conversation with a buddy of mine on a starbucks patio. He had just gotten a Sebenza and was showing it to me. The conversation was based around that and went to what other knives we had and then on to what guns we owned?

    A young lady walked over from her table and said "Excuse me, I don't mean to pry, but why do y'all have so many guns and knives?" My friend turned to her like he didn't understand why she would ask the question and said "to be ready, of course!" She said "Ready for what?!" He got an incredulous look on his face and said "THEM! We have to be ready when THEY get here!!!!" . She just walked away, got her purse, got into her car, and sped out of the parking lot. :D

    Someone told me once that collecting knives was dumb because scissors could do everything my knives could.

    "That's a Rambo knife"

    Yes, my 4.5" blade .115" thick Benchmade Nimravus is a "Rambo knife."

    What does that make my BRKT Rogue then? A Conan sized greatsword? I'd wonder what the same individual would have to say about a Busse BWM.

    The other day I was sitting in class when the guy next to me got an intrigued looked on his face and asked what was clipped to my pocket. I told him it was my knife thinking he was another knife enthusiast, but he just looked at me and said "What could you possibly need a knife for?" He wouldn't accept any answer I gave him and ultimately just stopped talking to me and the next class session he intentionally sat on the other side of the room.

    I really never have gotten much said to me...

    However, I get some strange looks when I unfold my Spyderco Police 3. A large blade to be sure. :eek:
