    Dumbest question? Who makes your blades. This when everything on my table indicates that I make everything myself.
    Most encouraging question? "Do you make damascus?"that was asked by a young female cashier at the supermarket where I bought a copy of Blade. She also knew that Ebay stuff from Pakistan was not "real" damascus in her words. There is hope for the youth of America!:D

    Your friend's an idiot. He must be a good friend if you're keeping him around. I have a couple like that.

    OH MY GOSH!!!!!!! Stop sharpening his knives and give his address. I would like to rummage through his trash when he takes it to the curb. :):):)

    My wife always ask:
    "What's in the box dear"
    It's gotten to a point where I just ignore her..

    I guess I don't get many opportunities for people to see my EDC that don't know me, because I don't remember many questions.

    Neither do I. This thread sounds like it's on the very edge of reality and fantasy go me.

    Someone once asked me "If you carry a gun, why do you carry a knife?" To which I replied "The last time I opened a box with my glock things got messy."

    Only dumb questions I ever get is "can I borrow your knife?" From non knife people which the answer is HELL NO, or my wife asking if I really need another knife, HELL YES I need another knife.

    We are out there. Few and far between, but there none the less.

    The best so far has been "Why is it clipped to your front pocket? That's only for self defense."
    I get a lot of "Are you planning on stabbing someone???" and the classic "What do you need a knife for?"

    Good point, forum admins should consider replacing knife in loge with shipple friendly version ex: butter knife in hot pink?

    The next time someone asks you, "why are you are carrying a knife" simply reply, "if I told you, I would have to kill you".

    I've probably been asked most of the ones mentioned. Except price. Oddly nobody has ever asked that. Come to think of it, people I tend to be around almost never discuss what things cost unless it is very pertinent.

    If a casual acquaintance asks to use my knife, I ask, "What do you want me to cut?" I will not loan them my knife.

    I have a couple female friends I trust with my knives. They carry knives but usually in a purse so not as accessible as mine. They make the mistake of asking "Do you have your knife on you?" I give them my best sarcastic, WTF look, and then they quickly change the question to "May I borrow your knife?" I'm getting them trained, slowly.

    Now that would be ridiculous, but a buck 110, KA bar, or Swiss army knife would be nice :D
    I personally think the v42 makes for a cool logo, but I can just see the media finding away to use it against us if a situation ever arises.
