dittybopper: The dumbass part was keeping the knives on the belt. Just say "OK, sorry, we forgot we had them on", go back to the car, remove them from your belt, and put them in your pocket (assuming it's a folding knife)
fireclown: Marylands knife carry rules seem to vary widely, and I have a creeping hunch that LEOs have no effing clue what they are. The rule seems to be pretty much "don't look like a dangerous tard and it won't come up". Which I dislike, since I like all laws to cover all people equally.Nobody outside of an airport has ever questioned my leatherman though. It's the wood-stocked semi auto of the knife world.

doglover: BeesNuts: some quality factor I'm missing out on.If you like Gerbers, then yes, you're missing the whole damn point of knives in general.Any edge can cut. That's not a problem. A good knife, though? That's a work of art.Much like the real Mona Lisa costs more than a printed copy of the Mona Lisa, a handmade knife from a good bladesmith is gonna run a bit more than a mass produced factory blade, even though at first it appears there's about 90% overlap in utility.
squirrelflavoredyogurt: offacue: Knives, you say? Got this for fathers day. Spyderco Southard Folder. (she paid about half that much)$200 for a piece of sharp steel? Guess she paid extra for the cool description..."When the detent is overcome, the blade rotates on a special captive ball-bearing pivot system and snaps authoritatively into the open position." What the hell are you going to cut with that thing that makes it worth even the discounted price?

Ker_Thwap: Prey4reign: This was formerly known as Tuesday at Great Adventure (aka Gangsta's Paradise).True story. My wife and I stayed at a bed and breakfast in New Hampshire owned and operated by a friend. We got talking to the friend about how does she fit in her busy B&B schedule with anything approaching a social life. She told us she gave up on finding a man in New Hampshire. She said there were two types of men in NH: super wealthy types who are either taken or gay; or some of the finest examples of worthless, knuckle dragging, never account for much drunkards or drug fiends known to man.There's a third type. Just the average nice guy who isn't rich. But we remind them of their dad or brother, we're financially responsible, so we don't have motorcycles, boats and expensive toys, so of course they want nothing to do with us./But, I'm not bitter!//Much.
Famishus: Might accidentally drop in to Smoky Mountain Knife Works while I'm there.
offacue: John Buck 41: Would love to get a William Henry or Chris Reeve someday. I go back and forth between fixed and folder. Currrent EDC is a Benchmade 510.I've got a griptillian in steady rotation. Smooth to flip open. A little bulky though. Can't wear a fixed here in Jersey./waiting for a flashlight thread
offacue: I like to dream around this site. There are many.
pudgyv: You know, some of the biggest hicks aren't in the deep south. They're in Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine./New Englander.
