    Question?? How do you know when you might have too many knives??o_O:oops:

    Answer!! When you lose a knife for up to three years, in your own house, and don't even miss it!!:eek::p:D

    This Oily Creek rolled under a chest of drawers, and hid behind a wide leg of the chest, when I tipped over a box of knives, after coming back from a show with a large quantity of cutlery!!
    I often buy several extras to supply my friends up here in Canada, and I now recall this as one of them!! I remember tipping the box, but I, of course, thought I picked them all up!!:rolleyes:

    Anyhoo, it's a conversation piece for sure! A BIG jack with two full blades, it's like a single end Moose!!;) Firm and snappy, it's a satisfying tool!!:thumbsup: Big Oily Jack 1.jpg Big Oily Jack 2.jpg Big Oily Jack 3.jpg
    I imagine the handle looks like a heavy slick of crude oil on the ocean, reminding us to take care of our planet!!:eek::)

    Cool knife. Wish I'd been your housekeeper before you rediscovered it.

    I learned that when I take long breaks from knife obsessed brain mode I start to forget what all is there. I can see this leading to exciting discoveries in the future.

    That's a beaut.

    Once in a while, outta blue, I remember I have a knife that I haven't seen in a while.
    Then I can't rest until I find it.
    Sometimes I can't find it.
    Sometimes I look for a knife and I find another knife I forgot about.

    It's a rollercoaster, I'm tellin ya....

    I recently found a SAK inside a pack that I don’t use very much.

    It was like Christmas morning.:)

    What a nice feeling that must have been...I can only begin to imagine the look of smug satisfaction on The Charlesters face..
    Winner !
    Only one difference between finding last years knife and finding last years money....
    Knife is worth more, money is worth less.:D

    They seem to help a lot of people lighten their baggage. They helped me a few years ago.

    I know of someone that borrowed a small duffle to use as their carry-on. To everyone’s surprise, TSA found some empty pistol mags in a side pocket. TSA just went ballistic over it.

    I was going to say, how did you know you lost it, with so many knives? But of course, you wouldn't know until you found it, that you lost it!

    It's like Christmas in October!

    Ha Ha!!:D I wouldn't be surprised if another knife turned up in the future!!
    I've always subscribed to the adage;
    "a messy desk (or knife room!;)), signifies genius!!";)
    Yes, I have a room/den, pretty much designated the "knife room", and it's pretty messy!!:oops:
