    Thanks, Nick. Always interested in these kinds of facts. And, on the knife the left prow, when pushed slightly downward, released the blade. I actually got three of these so that each of my then young sons (6 and 8 years old) would have one, plus one for me. I had to almost immediately take the knives away.

    I don’t think I gave each of them their respective knives back until they turned 40.

    Thanks for the laugh!
    Your post also gives me hope, that items confiscated during my childhood years could be returned to me some day soon :bounce::uhhuh:
    Even though I was told that they had all disapeared in mysterious ways and couldn't be found again in the decades that have followed these incidences.

    Different ages, different rules... but not that much different behaviours...
    When i was a child, sooo long time ago, things (most of all sharp ones) that had been "confiscated" to me from my parents had an apposite drawer where to put... and let them been forgotten.
    If i would have been so stupid to take it back off the drawer, "consequences" could have been... dramatic !
    So, i did never touched them anymore, neither i know where finally they disappeared.
    :)

    Thanks, Hagbard81 and Nick4305. I was a believer in “tough love”. (I once took my older son’s driver’s license away and, along with his car keys, locked them in my safe for 3 months. He was a much more responsible driver when he got them back!)

    Been using the Coast utility knife lately, really liking it, best small utility knife I have used.
    Has a premium look and feel to it, more like a knife, and holds the blade firmly.
    Large enough to actually get a nice grip on it. handles and operates like a typical knife.
    Also like that it exposes more of the blade than alot of others.
    And its cheap at only about $14 !

    Oh well...
    This made me remind about the Gerber EAB 1st generation (middle), one of the most well-crafted utility knife i've ever had.

    This is the well-known Czech pocket knife, Rybiča (Little Fish). The blade is 55mm (~2.15 inches) long.[​IMG]

    Made by Mikov in the Czech Republic!

    Nowadays I "scare" my kinds (boys, 6+8yo) with: I'll turn off the WIFI on your tablets, I can do it seperately with the router!

    Darn it, they already know what a router is (or get the consequenses at least).
    Pre-2019: Keep your kids outside with other kids, not more than 1 hour screen time.
    Corona times: Lock your kids inside, let them learn from tv and youtube, get them a tablet computer for home education.

    Without coronavirus and homeschooling (1 month in total) we'd maybe just think to get one of those tools of evil :p

    Might have to root around some, TS. I only vaguely remember that this was made by some brothers … and called a key something or other. Stay tuned.

    A Ka-Bar (but not a knife; a whistle shaped like a Marine Corps Fighting knife):

    Where'd you manage to pick that up? I'd love to find a couple of them.
