That's nonsense. Accidents can happen in all kinds of situations. Just be careful.alan007 wrote: On second thought -- maybe having a knife on a keyring is just a bad idea? Your thoughts?
That's one of the reasons I make sheaths for the ladybugs. I haven't personally had it happen, but a buddy got bit.Evil D wrote:It can definitely be dangerous. I've always had a Ladybug on my keys and one day it managed to open while in my pocket. I carry my keys clipped to my belt loop and tucked into my back pocket. I reached in to get a folded up paper out of that pocket and the blade slit my pinky open. After that I tightened the pivot down to where it takes considerable force to open it.
I may have embellished my initial post a bit to make it more of an adventure. After I finished rinsing the cut in cold water the bleeding had pretty much stopped. My hand was also wrapped and in my pocket at the salad bar. I definitely was not 'dripping blood at the salad bar'!.saw anyone at the salad bar in a grocery store dripping blood
No offense intended, but the lesson here is to always EDC a small, personal FAK (First-Aid Kit).alan007 wrote: .....On second thought -- maybe having a knife on a keyring is just a bad idea? Your thoughts?

Or, at the very least, a handful of Band-Aids in one's wallet or credit card case.

Didn't happen with an Endura, but my first para 2 ended up cutting the tubing running from my insulin pump to the first connection point of the infusion site. Mostly due to the open back design. Cut a pair of headphone cords too. Just dont leave any long stringy items in the same pocket as the ParaSpyderEdgeForever wrote:In regards to this, have any of you ever had or known of a situation where a larger folder (say Delica or Endura sized or larger) was inside your pocket, in closed position, and due to some material or cloth of the pocket getting stuck between the blade edge and handle, the knife not fully closing, and then opening up or cutting when you or they reached into the pocket? That was always a concern of mine.
I guess one remedy, though it would limit your speed of opening if necessary, would be to keep the folder inside a pouch or something, when inside your pocket.
