    You are not supposed to give a knife or scissors to someone you care because it cuts the threads of friendship, so, you sell the knife. The coin is in case they have one at the time to pay back.

    If someone gives you a knife, then you pay for it with a coin.

    The way I have heard it is that they are supposed to give you a coin because a knife that is not paid for supposedly cut cut the ties of friendship. Giving a coin with a knife is just a back up plan just in case your buddy is a broke deadbeat and doesn't have a coin to give you. haha. Also ,yes it was a cool cake . I think another friend of theirs made it for them. I guess it is good to have friends that make things.

    The tradition of giving a coin with the knife is intended to prevent the friendship from being severed by the gift. The recipient can then feel he has paid for the knife and is not in debt to the one giving it.

    Picked up a new little toy to tide myself over until the 562cf arrives...

    ...size comparison, I don't think it will displace the 940-1 from my pocket given its size and shape but it is a very cool knife...
