This seems like pretty much the most suitable thread at the moment for this.

Okay...I'm kind of wasted again, but I'm here to assure everyone...that my panties are still assertive.

(Despite whatever Muso says).

The fact that any person can drink any ethanol at work is "showing off" in my opinion. I agree that Guinness is low on my personal list. It does beat water though.

Actually, after looking at your new purchase, I've been fighting the impulse to purchase something similar myself.

Seems to be legal in the UK - I'd probably be stuck on a list somewhere, but still.

You can buy a spring-assist knife in the UK? Can you carry it, or does it have to stay inside?

Well, I don't actually know the details, I've just searched on Amazon.co.uk and there are some examples present.

I believe it's illegal to carry a knife in the UK - unless you use it for work or some such, I think Naib has a collection IIRC - I'm sure he has a better understanding of the regs.

I was thinking that I'm being a bit unfair to any home intruders, the axe that I keep for such occasions belonged to my granddad. It's more a blunt-force trauma weapon with a side of tetanus thrown in from the rust.

It'd be fairer to stick the little buggers.

As far as I recall to legal carry without a very good reason here it's gotta be less than a 3 inch blade and non-locking. It can be a bit more restrictive here in Glasgow where we've been fans of razors and blades outwith bushcraft and barbering for a long time, at Police discretion which is a bit grim.

I'm a fan of Opinel Knives, lovely budget friendly folders that have a carbon steel option.

*edit*

shit, sorry....I'm drinking a pleasant enough 2017 sheng pu-erh tea the now.

Illegal in New York State. They won't ship it here.

Now now Muso surely you are aware that the vast majority of US citizens cannot handle actual flavor. I live in New Mexico so I see people from all over the country come here and are confronted with flavor for the first time.

True story, no exageration, I was once at a get-together in my friends home and I cannot recall the dish but his cousin was amazed and asked what seasoning he should use to get similar results back home. He was astonished that all that was used was salt. That's right this visitor from the Great Lakes area isn't even used to seasoning with salt.

Oh my god you should see people try New Mexican chile for the first time, either green or red! So much fun! They are expecting some crappy salsa and POW!

I'm not sure where wswartzendruber grew up but Idaho is not known for big flavored cuisine. To me it only follows: bland food == bland beer.
There is actually a reason why US beers are so tasteless and it's to do with US barley and German immigrants.

When the 19th century German immigrants in the US first tried recreating German beer with the native US barley they found it had too much starch and therefore created a cloudy beer, not like the clear crisp ones at home. To make it clear they put less barley and added less starchy rice and maize which had the desired effect of making it clear but obviously diluted the flavour. Over time the US palate just became accustomed to this bland fizzy mess until the micro breweries came in recently

illegal (as an EDC) :( its locking ( Plunge lock). The spring-assist is EXTREMELY questionable as it would be getting closer to a flick knife (which is outright banned, like butterfly knives, no arguing with these types).


The devil is in the detail though, if you can justify why you are carrying it *IF* you got stopped and there was a valid reason you could be let off. But locking raises a lot of eyebrows, like fixed blades. And in the present climate in the UK (and Brum got 48h of emergency police powers, no chance). The shortlist of banned types (flick, butterfly, disguised knives, kusari...) are a do not pass go
This is my recent purchase https://www.topsknives.com/tundra-trekker and lulz if I was to carry this in the street (use in-garden, or camping)
