And now, my full photo-essay on my trip to the SFO.
The flight to Denver was pleasant, the scenery is some of the best the Western United States has to offer.
The SFO is located in a strip mall, fairly unassuming but right off the freeway. The first thing displayed facing front is the World Trade Center knife.
Cool posters adorn the walls…
In all a fun way to kill an hour. My prize was a combo-edge military model in S30V steel. But more on that one later…
(apologies for the obscure title reference, college-days)
Bladeforums.com Spyderhawk. Plain edge, blue FRN handle.
I probably won’t carry this one much. It’s big. Bigger than it looks. The blade barely fits in the handle.
I can imagine it would be a great sailing knife for cutting rope. Perhaps… gardening as well. Years ago when I de-tassled corn every summer, we would begin the season by culling the hybrid-mutant corn from the field. We called it “rogue-ing” i.e. eliminating the rogue stalks. The tool used for this was the “rogueing stick.” Wicked hook for pulling corn down at the base, as well as a flat blade on top for thrust cuts. Very strange to arm dozens of kids with long medieval weapons and send them all out into corn fields. Fond memories.
Anyway, good old #009.
