Thanks for the welcome!
Lots of hippies here! How hip are you? Hip enough to name your girl Sugar Magnolia? I was a few contractions away from having that name according to my grandmother. She convinced my mom and dad that they may want to rethink that.
Thank you grandmama! My mom and dad will neither confirm or deny. I had green hair before anyone else because that was my moms favorite color. 3rd grade. My nickname ended up being apple for the longest time.
As for what I like in knives I'm not sure yet. I always looked at them as a tool that I seldom used, perhaps occasionally cutting a seatbelt or something. I didn't even pick that knife out. My dad did. It's a serrated police model. I remember when he gave it to me and I thought Spyderco was a weird name for a police knife. It looked different from the old man knives I was used to seeing. Lately when my husband started collecting again I took an interest because we share a bank account! After seeing what he was buying I thought that they were as different to my work knife as my work knife was to old man knives. I guess that's when I started picking up his knives and admiring them. Not sure what I like more yet. I would carry the sliverax that my husband bought me to work if it were serrated. Not sure if it would be the best for the job but it's fun to fiddle with!
Maybe I don't know because there are so many! My husbands motto is Buy all the things! So I admire lots of different kinds.
