An expert in flashlight-ology and wise man named Max Tolkoff recently told me that “you can never have enough knives”. Never mind that me and said wise man were hyperventilating with glee having just walked through the front door of Cabela’s, a hunting supply store as big as 5 football fields. He was right; you know it and I know it. So, for your amusement and my own obsessive fun, I document for all to see – Jay’s Knives. Knife #3 is “the knife that saved Terry Dry’s wedding”. I don’t have many stories that are of the calibre worthy of repetition for the rest of my natural life, but that story makes the cut (snicker).
I wear #1, the Griptillian Tanto (w/ a combo edge), just about every day now. Good action on those Benchmades. #8, the Utili-key, is on my keychain too. So I suppose that means that everywhere I go, I have not one but two knives on my person. It should also be pointed out that I’ve never cleaned a fish or done anything particularly macho with my blades… It’s usually cutting stray strings or those motherfucking blister packs.
By the way, the hunting supply store was so big that it had it’s own food court… not a cafeteria, a food COURT.
