damn, that would have been perfect!

at that point I would have probably let him just keep it. "You've earned it. now call 911"

That's one of the reasons I carry two knives most of the time.  If I have to lend someone a knife it will usually be one of my Swiss Army knives but I try not to lend a knife as I have seen people use a knife for some stupid purposes.

My knife was covered in blood when he gave it to me......the blade, the handle, the clip, the button. 

he goes "sorry I ruined your knife"

me being a smartass replied "sorry I ruined you finger"

He almost looked like he was going to faint. It was deep as hell. 

I paid my bill and got the hell out of there. lol


I guess this is off topic but this sparked a recent experience:

Some Russian guys were in town visiting Miami Beach and wanted a Halo V.  They were staying at a hotel and I guess they had someone with them to be their driver and translator.  That guy called me and asked if I could meet him halfway so he could pick up the Halo V.  I met with the guy and we did one of those very shady cash deals out the back of a black SUV.  He then asked if it was real.  I told him yes and that I got it direct from Microtech.

So I take it out of the case and sheath and hand it to him... thinking... you know.. that he knew WTF a Halo V was.  As soon as I handed it to him, he proceeded to press the big shiny button with his other hand in front of the handle.

Now I'm scrambling to give him paper towels to put pressure on the grand canyon wide slit at the base of his finger (the spearpoint blade went point first into the bottom section of his index finger and probably hit bone).  Of course I had no band-aids in my car and he probably needed stitches or superglue.  He grabs the cash out of his left pocket with his right hand and gives me a wad of blood stained hundreds.

To this day I'm surprised he didn't drop the knife.  Now before I hand anyone a knife I ask if they are familiar with it.

The end.

Great story. 
The opening force on the Halo is just too strong not to cause significant blood loss, lol.
Probably hit bone? without a doubt.

I don't even tell people I carry a knife anymore.

Thanks for the oil tip GZB


I agree. As a MT newbie; that oil tip is gold.

I just saw a video on youtube, the idiot, had the nerve to put out a video on a Microtech UTX 70, and how he oiled it.

Watch the video, but skip to 8:35, and watch how he oiled the knife, totally mind blowing fail..

Here's the link:

When all that oil attracts the dust that it will, he will get major issues. There's just no need for that...

Microtech titanium funnel. 250$

That must be a worst case scenario like when you drop your knife in the sewer or septic tank and don't find it until a month later.
