Since I scored this reclaimed piece of classic chestnut and steel I've been documenting knife movements like I'm on some sort of secret recon mission.  Because of that it may very well consume more space than allotted for one blog post.  Sooooooooooooo, pull up a steel folding chair and a cigar.

Speaking of cigars…….I always use s knife to cut a circular head of the very head of my cigar.  I just want to scalp it.   Yep, just skin off enough to open a passage for the fine taste to escape 🙂  I'm like happy, happy on Emeril right now just pondering the moment. Anyhow, that was the first task handled by this folding pocket knife.

Part of me soooooooooooooooooooooo wanted to knurse, conserve, preserve, and collect this knife. But I overcame that desire and delivered proper steel cutting experiences for both of us…..and NOW for you too!


First thing I executed was the traditional hair cutting ritual.  ICE! 

Knext, was the cigar. BAM.

Knext, later in the day, I conducted the standard paper slicing experiment.  MONEY.  

How about a Flat Rate Priority Box?  ACES!

I really need to cut something, you know……."something" that's got UMPH.  Something hard…something substantial…..oh, how bout some wood?   
Yeah, that's the ticket…….WOOD.  I did some whittling as you can see in the pic below.  Knot sure what type of wood that was but it may have been oak or maple…..
None the less, the Canal Street single blade was marvelous!


On those knife commercials, ya know how they cut a cement brick, then slice a tomato?  Yeah, well, hey, let's try it.
You in?  I'm all in.

The last hard molecules I cut was the wood (see above).  So, on to food.  No sharpening allowed.  Pics of the Florida Orange and tomato:

Knext day a package arrived! Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee……another cutting opportunity!!

I mentioned above that the first item I cut was my cigar.  I "scalp" my cigars.  Ya see, it's vitally important when cutting your cigar that your item be radically sharp or you could mangle the cigar a wrapper.  It's knot a pretty picture smoking a manlged stick.
Here's a pic after all of the above cutting missions had been executed:

I feel like an Indian now every time I cut my cigar. 

Whew, allright back to the review………
