A little segment over on the Youtube discussed the "one knife for life" question. Just to be clear: that's not what I'm asking. We've done that question to death, resurrected it by internet magic to be killed all over again, and this terrible cycle will continue, forever. One of the knives that came up was the Buck 110, obviously. Which led me to thinking that there was a time when a man carried one knife, if not for life, then for many years. Maybe the childhood knife was retired when he became a Journeyman, and perhaps he allowed himself some extravagance when he retired. Those knives did their work, without any of the over-thinking that we apply to cutlery, today. Some of you may have one of those knives, passed down to you by one of those men. If you do, I would very much like to see them. Even if you don't have the knife, feel free to share any stories you may remember from a time when "one knife for life" was the expectation, not a point of debate on an internet forum. And thanks in advance.
