Reader Skidmark was kind enough to send me some knives from his “stuff I no longer use” box. Please allow me to say that Skid is an awesome individual. I have a couple favorites, and a couple others that, pending successful rabbit duty, will definitely be on the “keeper” list. I honestly don’t know what to say.
Skid asked for nothing in return. He simply shared with a fellow human being, with no further expectations. He did mention old superstition about exchanging silver for a knife or something bad will happen. I’d never heard of said superstition, but I complied. Why tempt fate?
There were about half a dozen knives in the envelope. I immediately took to the little Kershaw, mostly because of the opening mechanism. Others appealed to me for other reasons. I will give them all the opportunity to perform for me, and as per Skid’s request, I will pass on any that I choose not to utilize on a regular basis.
