Made some new Spydie-nutz!!

Postby transistor » Sat Jun 05, 2004 12:00 am

Hi all!



Haven't been posting lately, but I thought you oldies (even the newbies, maybe) might enjoy this.



I neglected to shave over the Memorial Day weekend and I wore the stubble into work on Tuesday. Naturally a (not so) witty wiseguy said something like; "What happened, lose your razor? I'll rent you mine for a buck!"



I said I would shave with my pocketknife before I'd let anything of his touch my face.



Next thing you know, I've got my tie off and my collar stuffed with paper towels as I lather up with dispenser hand soap in front of the mirror in the mens room.



I whip out my Calypso Jr. and proceed to shave.



I may be crazy, but I'm not stupid! I took my time. About eight minutes later I rinse and towel off.



No nicks. No razor burn. A flat out perfect shave.



Everyone (even the ladies were in there by the time I finished) is going " holy cow, I don't believe it! What kind of knife is that anyway?"



Now everyone in the office wants a Spydie!



Calypso Jr. rulz!!!

Yep I know the feeling, did the exact same thing (minus the office) with my SpyderCard a few years ago just to prove to myself just how sharp the sucker was, the 30 degree edge is quite nasty.

Cheers

Aloha!

Cool story! Can't do that with what I have in my bag i bring to work...Why?

It's a Rescue Jr.! To quote you transistor, "I may be crazy, but I'm not stupid!" LOL!

That'd really be something wouldn't it? "Shave on" brother, shave on!

That's awesome.

But at the same time, thank goodness you're not a surgeon!
