I made a quick movie to show someone how to “Spyder-drop” open a small knife like the Kiwi. I present it to you now in all of its crapful glory. I used WMV (sorry CHoM followers.)
I got to reading some old blog entries tonight and ran across the peculiar navel-gazing practice of listing the states and countries that you have visited. So in the fashion of following late, I’ll post mine.
Now, as for the World:
create your own visited country map
Clearly I have been neglecting some continents. And the tiny island nation of Japan has gotten an unfair amount of my attention.
I really want to get over to Oz and NZ sometime.
This was completely unexpected. I recently read a photo caption in a knife magazine regarding a small Cold Steel push knife being an invaluable EDC to a soldier in Iraq. Thanks to ebay and sniping software, I obtained one for a ridiculously low price. So! Without further ado, my first Cold Steel knife, and my first push knife: the Urban Pal. (also an inside joke for those that know me)
My first impression was: holy crap this thing is small! Really small! It fits in your jeans watch pocket.
I also note that the blade, sheath, and kraton handle are a pretty high degree of quality for a knife that cost me less than ten bucks!!
Short story: I love this little guy. It is fun to use (in a limited application sort of way).
