That first one is a BEAUTY!
He was holding the electrical plug from a desk fan that wasn't making a good connection and he mumbled that he was thinking about expanding the brass to get a better grip in the recepticle. I didn't think anything of it but I probably wouldn't have held it in my hand to do it.Cool story Wicked. Knives and cut thumbs go together like ham and eggs. Bet he just had to try the sharpness before he believed you.
Here you go, you can dress up the kitchen table as well... options in the link belowI'd love to have a couple of those
I have both of those knives. The buck since about 1980 and I too carried it on the former Carlswell AFB, they closed the base and made it a reserve base I think. The other is clipped in my bug out/bad weather/mobility bag. I have a large number of knives and carry changes with need.This was one of my earliest EDC knives while I was in the military. The Buck 501 Squire, I did a bit of embelishing on it to make it stand out and be different than anyone elses. A coworker in Ft Worth Texas (Carswell AFB) asked to borrow it for a moment, I told him it was sharp so be careful, I distinctly remember hearing "Oh damn, it is sharp." I turned around and he was bleeding like a stuck pig from his thumb. We took him to the base ER to get checked and some stitches as it turned out. I took a photo of him with his bandaged thumb, made a safety poster called it "Safety Awareness Recognition" with a brief explanation of the incident and stuck it on the bulletin board. When I filled out the safety incident report that goes to the squadron commander, 1st Sgt, and our Safety Rep, I included a copy of the poster...it was provided to all the different sections in the Squadron, he was famous.
Here's a photo of the Buck knife with a Gerber
