    Yeah, the German slang term for methamphetamine/Pervitin was actually ‘Blitz’, which gives a new meaning to ‘Blitzkrieg’.

    Nice one r8shell. Context can change meaning, but the characters basically mean ‘Smooth and Sharp’. The first character means a river, so presumably it’s a poetic modifier to the smooth cutting claim. The ‘river’ character might also be a family or persons name.

    By the time I got here with my quotes, they'd been taken care of.
    Cool knife and translating.

    I don't think this question rates its own thread. Does anybody hunt with this blade shape? I think that was what they were for, and I think they were popular, but I don't think I've seen one in the "Trads and hunting" thread.

    the schrade trailing point hunters were very popular for many years - i'm pretty sure there are versions of that still in production under the new owners.

    Maybe. My grandmother was of English ancestry.
    Actually, what I had was parents who were born over a hundred years ago. Some of the expressions that I picked up as a youngster are a bit dated.

    A shame so many have been lost or simply gone out of use Frank :) One that I recall hearing, and finding funny was, "He'd follow a muck-cart and think it were a wedding"! :D :thumbsup:

    @Jack Black

    We had a bread box when I was a kid.

    My late FIL told me about the first time he saw a bread slicer back in the 30’s. “The best thing since sliced bread” was a familiar saying of his.

    We saw hand-cranked circ-saw bread slicers in Germany in 1967, and bought one and mailed it home. Mom made all our bread for years. Mostly honey whole wheat, four loaves at a time on Saturdays, that we would eat warm with French omelettes. Who cared that Saturday lunch interfered with Sky King?
    Of course, as a knife knut, I prefer to use a knife these days.

    "Out of the clear blue of the Western sky comes Sky King!" I remembered the name of the plane too - Songbird :confused:

    Yikes - out of the fading gray matter of the eastern man comes these memories! :)

    I would have enjoyed Saturday lunch with you guys even if I had to watch Roller Derby. :D

    This question prompted me to look around, as I only use internet from my phone. In the upper right corner the 3 lines indicating the menu, touch it, scroll down the menu to "paid subscriptions" but dont touch the text, touch the down arrow beside it. Then a new line appears will say "purchase details" touch that, and you'll get a search bar letting you look up other people's details (I find that one odd) but below that it'll give you yours, for example mine runs out Sept 2

    @JB in SC - :D - I never liked that show very much (preferred ZORRO) but it's what we had, so I watched it. Still, I might just sit back for a 1/2 hour tonight and tune in. As we know - $ 15,000.00 is a lot of loot :rolleyes: so I'm intrigued ...

    Thanks.
