Okay folks. I don't know how much I'll be able to post over the next few weeks. I have the last bits of homework for my classes to finish up this week and next week I have finals. It could be a little bit hairy.
It's time to share a bit. I am somewhat of a knife enthusiast. Scratch that, I'm somewhat of a shiny-pointy-sharp-object enthusiast.
Generally speaking, I carry a folding knife in my back pocket. I sense that some of you may be asking why.
There are a few reasons. One, I tend to walk or bike on campus during the night hours. I like the feeling that I wouldn't be entirely defenseless. Two, a properly sharpened knife is incredibly useful in my new line of work. I have to cut cords and cables and such all the time. Three, did I mention that I like knives?
So, normally I buy a veritably cheap knife that's on sale at some random sporting goods store. They generally cost about $10 to $15. I have to replace the knife every two or three months. The simple fact of the matter is that I don't feel like spending the better part of an hour sharpening a knife that I didn't pay a whole bunch for and isn't worth a whole heap of money in the first place.
So, I have been searching for a new knife.
Last night, I was watching a movie with my parents and my dad was looking at a catalogue. He handed it to me and I started looking through it. I found my new knife. It's beautiful.
But flipping through that catalogue got me thinking. This is an incredible sight with lots of quality products at extremely reduced prices. Why have I not shared this with you guys before?!?
Please excuse my tardiness in this matter. But, the Sierra Trading Post is well worth a gander.
For our foreign friends, they do international orders as well.
