I was talking to my bro over the last couple of days. He brought up knives.
That got me overly excited about knives, and and the general vibe about them.
I have a bunch in my collection, and one that I happen to carry just about everywhere I go where knives are not prohibited: the Benchmade Griptillian with S30V steel that I had custom made for me. It’s a knife that I’m more than proud of. It’s well made and fits in my hand. It’s been used while camping to chop wood. Overall self-defense (thankfully never really used for that purpose).
When you’re talking to someone about something that you find interesting, it always makes it more fun. :-)
