Spyderco Ladybug. 17 grams. $22.

The little chore knife for when I don't carry a knife (Fastpacks, long runs, etc.)

(Edit: Sorry folks, not for sale. Just showing off my new knife here...already received 3 PMs, didn't realize it looks so much like a Gear Swap FS ad.)

I'm getting a kick out of the juxtaposition here. You really do know how to "slum it" while simultaneously classing the hell out of things don't you Craig?

Is that a length of Kelly Triptease line?

I'll take it for $22.

Yes, it's Triptease. A 3" loop tied with an overhand knot by yours truly. $22 shipped CONUS. Travis, I guarantee you'll never find a better 3" loop for the money.

I use the same knife (but the 1/2 serrated, 1/2 straight edge version). Perfect sub 1 oz knife!

Good idea to add a loop of reflective cord; I think I still have some triptease around here somewhere...

Sorry dude, this is a Triptease loop.

But for $18 I could sell you one of those really good blue rubber bands off of a bunch of asparagus.

Let me know.

@Nick
It's a sweet little knife, eh? I used to carry nothing but a Victorinox classic but the blade on those is just so small. The Ladybug is certainly tiny, but the blade is a bit more functional.

Switchblade from Italy. Imported by my own hand. Maker unknown, but when a friend and I walked into this little shop in Firenze and asked about switchblades, the little old lady behind the counter, without a word, walked to the front door and locked it. Walked to the back room and came out with a shoebox full of knives. "No say anything," she said.

My eclectic little addition

books and such

The book is an original published during the war by Overseas Editions, Inc. Don't know if you can read it at the bottom of the book, but it says: This edition of an American book is made available in various countries only until normal free publishing, interrupted by Axis aggression, can be reestablished.

The knife came from the Karl Marx University cafeteria. The Irish Whiskey seemed to fit the theme (and is quite tasty, to boot!)

He seems like an author I'd enjoy as I dig Kerouac, Bukowski, Selby, Palahniuk, Hunter Thompson, etc.

The book in my photo is a 1937 printing of the Complete Works of William Shakespeare that I picked up at the Theater in DC. I should note that I'm not a metrosexual but play one on TV.
