Lost and found knives
A few of you will remember that the Fallkniven lockback folding hunter 39 H9 I lost for three years was pushed out from under my chest by my Roomba. It had been missing so long I bought another, then after three years, it was recovered. I rejoiced. The replacement rests in my chest, from which it was recovered.
About a month ago, I misplaced the original knife. I searched far and wide for it, eventually thinking I'd lost it in my truck....which I searched to no avail.
Then, a final look in a junk box...and voila'. I think the housekeepers placed it there, but it could have been me. I rejoiced again.
Today, I found two knives I'd hidden away and then sharpened them. A Leatherman tool, much better IMO than the Gerber, and a Kershaw Blur.. They were on my fly tying table, which is covered with feathers.
Am I the only one who feels really good when I find something Imisplaced but am attached to? I've got knives I'm NOT attached to, but would hate to lose them. But these I found are special.
I'm not a collector of knives, yet I probably have a dozen or so over the years. Most of which are not expensive. They range from a NRA knife (made in China) to a Victorianox with aluminum handles. Thin and useful A good enough pocket knifel
For some reason, I carry two pocket knves.a Gerber lightweight knife and the Fallkniven because it's sharp...very sharp. And has a much thicker blade. But Mainly because I don't want to lose the Fallkniven again... its a superior pocket knife.
Concealed carry is for protection, open carry is for attention.
