For the same reason my friends, relatives and neighbors can come over and shoot my 300 Winchester magnum long range rifle and think nothing of it but are visibly uncomfortable and borderline fearful when I bring an AR-15 rifle to the bench. The media, politicians, social media have convinced them that the AR is a military style killing machine and that my bolt rifle is a hunters tool. Never mind the power/range differences.... The AR is all black, has a pistol grip and one of those million round clip thingies.... It's evil incarnate. Idiots.SpyderEdgeForever wrote: ↑Sat May 04, 2019 11:17 amOld Hoosier, also, here is another question about humans, with particular attention on knives. Why is it that a person can be fully comfortable using a 10 or even 12 inch long kitchen/food preparation blade to make dinner, but, that same person will become "antsy' and nervous and even downright fearful and upset over someone with a 3 or 4 inch blade sporting knife?
Yes SEF, I'm very familiar with SAK's....an executive rides in my LFP and a tinker rides in my RFP...along with whatever Spyder I'm carrying that day. Different tools for different jobs.SpyderEdgeForever wrote: ↑Sat May 04, 2019 4:19 pmThank you Old Hoosier, this perfectly explains what makes some of these people think that way. As an example, I showed someone who thinks along those lines a picture of the Spyderco Endura and the variant with the patented Emerson Wave Opener. The person looked that over and gave me a quizzical look and said "Those look like useless knives, only good for hurting people." I asked the person "Why then do you have chef knives at home?" and they said "Those are for cooking." That is exactly the kind of mentality you just mentioned. When I see those pictures of those Spyderco knives, the first thoughts that come to my mind are: 1 Great and well thought-out designs and engineering, 2 useful tools made from excellent materials (VG10 steel and FRN handles), 3 Useful tools. This person seems to have the attitude that the only personal folding knife a person needs is either the kind with the nail-clippers and the little blade with a file on one side, I am sure you've seen those, or, one of the smaller Swiss Army Knives.
