Weekend Open Thread: Jolly Ol’ Big Brother Edition

Seasons Greetings and Salutations. I am doing my best to get into the holiday spirit, but it is tough. After growing up in the snow-belt of Cleveland, OH, TN just never quite feels like the Christmas season. It is cold at least right now, but I miss the snow.

How are you folks doing? Anyone in the Northeast and want to stab me because I want snow?

Anyone buying knives this Christmas? For yourself or for others? Don’t fall into the “You don’t have to get me anything” trap. A good reason to hang onto some boxes from production knives. You can always give away a knife in box. It is the thought that counts.

Hey Hocky – do you want a Spyderco T-Shirt? You were my winner for last week’s drawing. You get your choice of Black (Large) or Green (XL). Or you can pass. If he chooses one, the other is this week’s prize. If not, this week’s winner gets their choice. So comment away everyone. Last week was a bit on the sparse side, though the boxing stories were an interesting read.


I love how many variations there are to this meme. Of course it reminds me of Yukon Cornelieus – the OG of EDC.



I was today years old before I made that connection. Or rather, the connection was pointed out to me.

Ok, that is about all I have for tonight. I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas.
