Well, my <img src="spyder.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>Car story is kind of odd, so look away if you love Taurus' red upholstery!

Back? Still here? Good.

Well, one day my mom and I were trolling through a mall parking lot searching for a spot, when she got a craving for part of the chocolate Easter bunny I had in the glovebox.

However, this particular Easter Bunny is approximately an inch thick and very tough to cleanly break. Mom asks if I have a knife. As I am a <img src="spyder.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>Man, I of course say yes and pull my Endura.

First, Mom starts to cut the chocolate while holding it on her leg. I basically panic, and scream for her not to, explaining that a <img src="spyder.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0> would go through the chocolate, the box, and into her leg.

Then, thinking better of it, Mom begins to cut the chocolate on the seat. I figure she knows not to press hard, but I was wrong. 2 seconds, two pieces, one gash in the seat. She learned the power of the <img src="spyder.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0> that day! <img src="wink.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>

Keepin' it real...real sharp, that is.

My Blue Chinese Lum perfectly matches my beat up old '91 nissan pathfinder. over a quarter million miles nd still going. Depending on where I am and where I am going I often have my millie right there in the council or in some easily accessible place.
P.S. I just ordered a pair of copilots for two of my favorite teachers as way of a parting gift. I also ordered myself a lime green pe jester. ;-) If i like the copilot I may give one of them my ss dragonfly and keep a copilot. Uh Oh almost double digit in personal collection of spydies.

Not quite a knife but I Carry an Ontario SP16 SPAX in my Ford E150, obstensibly for camping and rescue work, but boy is it an intimidating defensive tool as well. It's sheathed in the door pocket along with my Estwing Geologist Pick. No additional knives in the vehicle except for the EDC du jour.

Stay safe! Stay sharp! <img src="spyder.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>

1998 Toyota which sports one non-metallic fixblade by Newt Livesay hanging on the rear view mirror and a Camillus CQB2 attached to the center console. The Newt Livesay blade has seen action but that's a story for another day.

Al- After I finished laughing and wiping my eyes, Mom took her mistake fairly well. Aside from a comment on my knives being "far too sharp", that is. <img src="wink.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>

Keepin' it real...real sharp, that is.
