    "It's not a weapon, it's a tool."

    I was at a gun show a few years ago and one of the vendors had some Benchmade 940's out. A guy was looking at them with a young boy. He said "I can't believe they're selling switchblades, they're illegal!". I just happened to have mine on me and politely showed him the "button" was actually the axis lock.

    I try not to get into arguements with strangers but I don't suffer fools lightly either. I didn't consider the above a fool, just not as versed on knives as I was about this particular knife.

    Anything can't be a "weapon "


    If a person is determined to do harm to someone they can and will find something to use. Pencil etc.

    I have had my share of people that think this way and I try to explain but most of the time I laugh


    Close minded people are difficult and frustrating to talk to. My patience level is very low

    Honestly I'd rather have a big 2x4 than a sub-3 inch blade to use as a weapon.

    @Rev. Chuck: I dunno, some of the Subcoms are kinda mean lookin' :laugh: (I'm looking at the SubClaw for myself).

    With shows like NCIS around, I'm surprised more people aren't versed with rule #9: never go anywhere without a knife. I'm from a pretty conservative state that almost unanimously supports gun owner's rights but every now and again, someone will freak out about a tiny little pocket knife. In these situations, I always look to see if they drive away in a vehicle with an NRA bumper sticker :idiot2:.

    Heck, you could kill someone with a shoelace if you really wanted to.

    I would prefer not to get that close, in case someone had the 3 inch blade!

    The average person doesn't know about the illegality of a switchblade.

    Oh I'm sorry, do you live in Canada?

    Pretty much everyone here knows you can't have a bali or switchblade.

    I think you need to go grab yourself a beer.

    Also, "eh"? Really?

    Don't all Irish people like potatoes? Aren't all Koreans good at video games? Aren't all Americans fat and rude? Aren't all OHO knives switchblades?

    The hysteria that a lot of people display towards knives is odd and, in many cases, nonsensical. I've had the experience where I've been carrying a SAK, and no-one has battered an eyelid, but as soon as I have a single-purpose knife on me, people freak out. The blade lengths are exactly the same, and they don't lock. The vast majority of people I've met just don't display common sense when it comes to carrying a knife. Perhaps that's because knives are totally demonised here (England), and they are definitely considered a weapon rather than a tool. It's crazy.

    I got a "*** U HAZ AN KNIVE??!!" moment with a co-worker when I pulled out a Victorinox Classic (1" blade) to open some boxes.

    Since that moment, I sewed an extra piece of fabric into the pocket of all my pants in order to conceal my Spyderco PM2 from view of the domesticated humans.

    To be fair, another colleague at work didn't bat an eyelash when I pulled out my Spyderco to help her with some box cutting chores. Credit given where credit due.
