We are all unfaithful to our Queens.
Be honest with yourself. We all have those top-dollar one-of-a-kind beauty blades that we keep stowed away in some concealed 3-lock box at home. Like a jealous king, we protect our most precious and beautiful princess from being taken out too much and preserve her for some abstract future “marriage” of perfect opportunity and appropriate task. These “Vault Queens” never see the light of day, even though they were intended to be your tactical Dragon Slayer.
Instead, we have our one or two trusted “go-to” blades that sit out in the open, on the dresser, right next to the wallet and watch. This is the knife that we put on before grabbing our truck keys and heading out the door.
This one is definitely light by TOPS standards, but it felt tough to me when I handled one.View Linked Article
