Not every light colored wood is as soft as pine. Not every dark wood is as hard as ebony. It is a common misconception that darker woods are harder and thus, more desirable than lighter colored woods. It reminds me of the s when every den had to have dark or walnut colored paneled walls, furniture, and accessories. This may be the very reason that these dens were later called man-caves, because they were almost always dark. Guys would stain pine to a walnut color to darken it, and make it seem more valuable, as the most valued North American hardwood is American Black Walnut. But I’m sure the practice goes back much further, as even in historic pieces, they were ebonized to make the wood seem richer and more valuable. There is often a persistent belief that the darker woods are harder, and more durable as well as more masculine and bold in visual punch. This is wrong; there are many very hard, tough, and durable woods that are light in color and well-outlast darker woods like walnut.

Knife Anatomy 12 Here’s the hidden tang knife, completed. You can see how the handle does not show any tang metal for a natural appearance, and the shape of the handle does not depend on the shape, angle, size, or position of the tang, so a full sculpting of the handle shape can occur. Note how the quillons and handle belly make this an attractive and comfortable handle. This is one of my most popular knife patterns, the “Aunkst.

How many knife fights have you actually been in? Professional knifers Choosing a Knife Cost of knife use Dueling vs. Yep, he’s a knifefighter alright Not to put too fine of a point on it, but thinking that training in ‘knife fighting is the same as doing it is like a virgin telling me he knows everything there is about sex because he’s ‘studied’ porno movies.
The only people who are going to be impressed are other virgins. And all the cocky arrogance the world about his deadly training isn’t going to change the fact, that such a person is still a virgin — therefore NOT a knifer, much less a “knife fighter.

At various times during my career in the Army and the Marine Corps I carried most of the knives mentioned above but there was one knife that I carried throughout the entire time that was the unsung hero and full-tilt workhorse of the whole crowd. The term Demo Knife is an affectionate but completely inappropriate and dangerously inaccurate nickname bestowed on a knife manufactured for the US Military by Camillus Knives and made entirely of stainless steel.
Decades ago, the rumor got started that because the knife in question was stainless steel, it was non-magnetic and therefore could be used to de-activate mines without setting them off.

Pinterest Partners in crime: Nick Godejohn and Gypsy. The pair met online on a Christian dating site and soon realised how compatible they were. AP My first question to her is a simple one: If I had to say one word about her it would be… overprotective. That would have been a simple story — this is anything but. Gypsy was a young woman who lived in a false reality. Her life was filled with public playfulness and private abuse. There is no way for us to know what it was like inside that little pink house, nor would it be fair to judge her actions.
When I spoke to Gypsy in interviews at the local jail, she said Dee Dee had told her that her father, Rod, had abandoned them.

Why is the Star of David on the sword of the Marines? Anyone with a historical note on this. This is what I found: The above reference comes from JewishMarines. If the sword is made by the Wilkinson Sword Company the Star of David is on the hilt because the company was founded by a Jew, and the swords made by the direct descendants all have the Star of David on the hilt. Are either of the above known to be true or are they urban legends??
I have no source documentation to compare this with.

Blaisdell, to the many Zippo employees, customers, and collectors who have played a part in its year history. Blaisdell watched a friend awkwardly using a cumbersome Austrian-made lighter. The lighter worked well, even in the wind, due to the design of the chimney. But its appearance was utilitarian. Its use required two hands, and its thin metal surface dented easily. Late in , he decided to refashion the Austrian lighter. Blaisdell fabricated a rectangular case and attached the top of the lighter to the case with a hinge.
He retained the chimney design which protected the flame under adverse conditions. The result was a lighter that looked good and was easy to operate. And, from the very beginning, they were backed by Mr. Application for the original Zippo patent was filed on May 17, , and patent number was granted on March 3, A second patent, number was issued on August 1, The design of the Zippo lighter remains basically the same to this day, with minor improvements.
