    ...looking at a new EDC online (the beautiful Puma IP Perdiz) and said "not another knife (I have 3 EDCs (used in rota) and a Wenger on my car keys)! How many can you use at once?!?!"

    My response left her speechless. "How many pairs of shoes do you own, dear?"

    The bug has bitten hard. I love the look and feel and general utility of my EDCs. call it a hobby and leave me alone!

    I couldn't use the shoe line on my wife. She only has 3 pair; 1 for running in, 1 for EDC and a pair of Oakley flip flops for the summer. I almost lost count of how many knives I own.

    My wife caught me while looking at the bank account online when I bought my kershaw knockout. Then again when she walked up as I was paying for my sogzilla at Walmart. It's easier to ask forgiveness than permission, right?

    Very true. I may need to hide my order from Pocket Predator slingshots so my luck doesn't run out.

    Honestly though, I think she's just accepted that it's going to happen and doesn't gripe for long.

    Its nice having an understanding spouse.

    I'm just glad I never gave my wife too hard of a time about shoes or bags.

    My first wife complained about every knife I owned. My second wife complained about all the time I spend cleaning and buffing knives. My third wife orders knives for me and helps maintain them. She's a keeper :D

    Let this be a lesson to everyone. The key to happiness is three wives. And let's hope they get along and cook for each other and everything.

    There is an old saying about trouble coming in threes...

    This brief sequence of posts would seem however to confirm another oft observed phenomenom: consider it a manifestation of two sides to every coin!

    And for those of us either in the IT world or familiar with personal computers going back to the beginning, well known for a very long time that any new software from Microsoft was never really useable until version 3! Evidence when Windows first came out ... never took off until version 3.11.

    I don't have to worry. My wife could care less what I choose to buy for EDC unless its something really expensive, which I don't get anyway.

    Shoe argument is moot, i think i might be leading that race with one pair. She's way out of my league on bags.
    But:
    When my wife catches me with new gear i blush from shame so she stops, points and giggles.

    My wife just started to work from home Mon,Tues,Thurs, And Friday. I work from home Monday and wednesday. If it is not delivered on Wednesday or is to large to fit in the mailbox I just have them hold it so I can pick it up. Sometimes i get 3-4 thing a day depending on what spree I went on last and that conversation is never pleasant lol.

    H418982: You could always rent a box at the UPS store or one of its clones...or even (shudder) local USPS. Being self employed, I've done that and treat it as a business expense. Totally legit.

    L'chaim!
