funny story for the knife enthusiest

We have a huge Hardware store here in Boulder called McGuckins. They have just about everything you could ever imagine. They have a really nice display of knives. I have had my eye on the Kershaw E.T. for some time. I went over there one day to check it out and asked one of the employees in the sports department to show it to me and demonstrate how it operates. He sighed and said : “ I hate that knife, every time I try to use it I cut my self”. Sure enough during his demonstration he cut the end of his finger. The Kershaw knives are razor sharp and it started seeping blood in a hurry. He was pissed.

Check out this video; at around second 18 of the vid you will see the demonstrator operate one of the various closing methods. This is when the McGukin employee nipped the end of his middle finger off.

I knew I had to have one after that

Not only power on the open but power closing, I would lop something off for sure.
