okay, embarrassing moment. while cleaning my Doug Ritter mini RSK (and not paying full attention. okay, okay, i was watching television at the same time) i managed to give myself a pretty good slice on the ole index finger. man, i haven't given myself a good cut from cleaning or sharpening a pocket knife in years. but for some reason the RSK just seemed to cut into my finger like a warm knife through butter. <img src="/images/graemlins/shocked.gif" alt="" /> to be fair, i underestimated its edge. but no more. from now on the RSK gets my full attention. <img src="/images/graemlins/smirk.gif" alt="" /> man that little sucker is sharp. i'm just glad i "learned" my little lesson while at home. i was able to clean and dress it up no problem. (it sure was a bleeder though) anyone else have a "i wasn't paying attention" moment?

A knife isn't really yours untill it has tasted your blood.

Also gives you the chance to use your FAK..... <img src="/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

Honestly, IMO anything isn't truly yours until it has 'tasted' your blood

I still have scars from cutting my hands when I was a little boy some 40+ years ago.

The tv remote qualifies ONLY if blood is drawn while struggling for control of the remote with your wife. <img src="/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />
