Today's blogger meme comes from Neanderpundit- 

Take the knife out of your pocket and take a picture of it, and post it. Or post a picture of the same knife from a brochure or whatever.
No, not your favorite knife, or your prettiest, but the one that never leaves your side. Mine’s a Schrade 897 Uncle Henry, made in USA, from when they still were made in the USA. it’s stainless because I can’t find carbon steel ones anymore.
I'm sure it's been done before, but hey, I'll play.

Kershaw Ken Onion designed Leek.

I got the black one so it blends with my work uniform, and the non-serrated version since it's easier to maintain and I don't cut rope on a daily basis (I do have a serrated version for days I'm doing climbing stuff though.)  Speaking of climbing, I fell in love with the spring-assist concept when I was teaching climbing and rappelling on a daily basis.  Fast, trouble-free one handed opening rules when 30 feet of the ground and clinging to a rock.  And at about $40 I'm not heart broken if I loose (another) one.

Plus that last little bit of text on the blade gives me a warm-fuzzy.


Lest ye forget, it be International Talk Like a Pirate Day.
