NOTICE:
To all y'all,

The year 2017 has been and will continue to be extraordinarily CHALLENGING and BUSY for me. Blog entries will likely be even more infrequent than usual until all projects and issues are completed or resolved.

Thanks for stopping by. I really do appreciated it.

Best wishes,

Zack

Blog knife meme



The knife in my pocket is a USA made Schrade Old Timer… because I am an old timer.  It has been my pocketknife for somewhere over 30-years.  Today if you see one for sale in a store, it is from China, which is where the jobs went.

There are still plenty of good pocket folders made in the USA.  We need the jobs.  Buy American!


 

I also carry one of those multi-fangled-tool gadgets, but that is on my belt and the meme did specify “in your pocket.”

Greetings from Texas,
I'm pretty hard on knives. Even the good ones break tips. And sometimes, they go missing.

What I have managed to hang on to is a 'pen' knife that belonged to my grandfather. I still have it because I don't carry it. It stays in a drawer at home.

On the other hand I still have the Smith and Wesson Model 10 I bought less than a week after my twenty first birthday.

Heh, I too have lost many over the years. The reason I did not open the knife for the photo is that the blades show their age and use... the spear point blade tip broke long ago and the carbon steel blades are all stained.
