I love them. I do not know anything about them, but I am endlessly fascinating by them.
Yesterday a package arrived from my friend Ce. She comments on the blog as poniegirl. She is one of those really cool people that makes you glad you are alive and lucked out to not only cross paths with her, but actually get to be friends with. She is just that cool. Her hubby, Mark is also very cool. When I broke my ribs all he said was, “Well, that’s what you get for [email protected]&ing with a Marine.” I like him.
So, this package…Ce had told me that her hubby made me a knife and it was on it’s way. What I didn’t know was that he also included a knife for TSM. A very awesome surprise. Here was how they were packaged…
My knife. The handle is South American Red Wood…gorgeous! Mine is nickelson file. I don’t know what it means, but the blade is crazy sharp. I spent the entire night cutting everything including cardboard boxes, an unfolded newspaper, a shoestring and some arm hair just cuz I always see people doing that.
I should have tucked my shirt in and looked more picture like, but I wasn’t paying attention when my son took the shot. It’s me in my natural habitat doing my normal activity…eating (in this case an orange) and texting.
TSM’s knife. It is made from coffee and cream bamboo and is (or has, I don’t understand the lingo yet)a farriers rasp. Again, no clue, but a crazy fricken cool knife. Very comfortable in the hand. The sheaths are made from saddle leather.
These are not self defense knives per se. Of course, we know that when our life is on the line anything and everything from a chopstick to a gun can be used to fight for our lives, but these are made as utility knives.
Here are a few YouTube videos that other people made that show off what these knives can do.
Good news is these are fabulous knives. Bad news is that Mark is no longer taking any orders.
We are very fortunate to have such neat people in our lives. Thank you Ce and Mark for our knives. We love them!!!
P.S. Holy crap, I think I actually inserted the videos all by myself!!!
