The new Gerber I ordered came in today. Thank goodness there was a warning included. I might have hurt myself! <_<

I gnu you needed a new knife.

To stay safe in bear country, always carry a small pocket knife and hike with a friend.

If a bear attacks, stab your friend in the leg and run.

Good GAWD!!   That our society has descended to the point where that is necessary. 

 

Of course,  in the early '70s I saw an ad in Guns and Ammo for surplus bayonets with a warning that they were sharp and could inflict serious or lethal injuries. 

 

That was also around when we started seeing warnings on hand held blow dryers about not using them while in the shower.   One of my brothers commented that we should be thankful that people who needed such warnings bathe at all.

And, you'll be safe if you travel to the UK also. That is, IF you can sneak it past TSA agents.:ph34r:

Only US/UK, it is acknowledged that others know how to handle knives.

The warning was in numerous languages. I just showed the English one.

US and U.K. have the most lawyers. :D

Looks like a nice knife, Utah Bob. :)

Is it “assisted opening”...spring assisted?

 

I like that blade shape.

I am not a knife guy , am generally indifferent to them , but this one is interesting. More research may be in order.  I have been carrying the same Buck Stockman for something over 40 years.

Rex :D

Buck has a similar knife. I have had one for a few months and really like it.

I get most of my working knives from Blade HQ in Utah.They have a huge selection.  Cheap or free shipping depending on how much you spend. Good customer service.

For the traditionalists, Buck also makes 110 and 112 autos now.

Funny, one can buy them here, one cannot carry them here. This is a screwy place.
