I spent a week on a houseboat with my Delica. I used paracord to build a short lanyard. I could un-clip the lanyard from my belt-loop, and snug it around my wrist, before drawing the knife. It prevented loss while carrying, or using.

I understand that the great majority of Black Widow spider bites occur on men. Black Widows like to hang out in warm, dark wood- like below outhouse seats. Women can use the outhouse without incident, but men have certain appendages that protrude into the Black Widow territory, and that’s where they...

A knife is a wonderful gift. Be aware that knives are tools, and tools that get used, also get worn, broken, or lost. Would that upset you unduly?

No one addressed the topic of toxicity. I use my Spydie for everytying, including food preparation. I would insist that my knife lube be non-toxic.

Maybe fifteen years ago I needed to chop up a bunch of brown onions. I guess I'm an onion wimp, but my eyes tear up something awful when chopping onions. I was determined to invent the tearless onion-chopping method. I figured that onion juice jumps through the air at you and your eyes, and if the o...

vampyrewolf Your system of maintaining an angle by keeping the spine, one thickness off the sharpening surface may not give you the consistent angle you seek. The attached extreme example shows two blades, both 1/8” thick. One is ½” wide, the other 1-1/2” wide. Both spines are 1/8” off of the surfac...

So you scared yourself, embarrased yourself, paid a paifull price, and learned a lesson: A small wrong. But you did a very big right- you didn't drive. Well done!
