But still, Weer'd Beard's blog is participating in a fun little thing, so I figured I'd play along:
Take the knife out of your pocket and take a picture of it, and post it.
Actually, I have three. Well, technically NONE, since I'm not wearing pants and therefore currently have no pockets, but these are the three that I typically carry.
- Mora of Sweden Clipper 840 in carbon steel. This is my "open carry" knife. I typically leave it at home when I'm running errands, but when I'm going for a walk I always have it with me. I have used and abused this poor knife more than it deserves, and I'm obsessive about keeping a razor edge on it.
- SOA MT1. This is my "every day carry" knife. I admit it, the design is over-the-top macho, and the blade is only 440 stainless. Still, it's a decent knife for doing knife-y things, and I like the integral glass-breaker and seatbelt cutter. And well, the thing looks mean, which has actually gotten me out of a jam once, even though I don't know how much use it'd be in an actual self-defense situation.
- No-name Leatherman knockoff the NRA sent me: It's a multitool. It's useful. I carry it everywhere I go. I usually forget it has a knife blade, because if I need things cut, I have the SOA or Mora at hand.
So, yeah. I like knives....
