I’m really digging this book, The Wolverine Way, by Douglas H. Chadwick, that I mentioned the other day, so sue me for mentioning it again. Today I was searching online to see if Chadwick has a website and came across this video trailer for the book. I really like it. It may take a while to load, but it’s worth watching. At least to me it is.
Adventures Ain’t the Same Without One
Ever wonder about the Swiss Army Knife (the one to the left is the Swiss Army Officers Knife from 1897), its history and where it comes from? This article from The Outside Blog will answer that question for you, and I thought it was pretty interesting in a “Hmm, that’s cool” kind of way. I enjoy knowing stuff like this, even if I forget it moments later.
As every manly man knows (and more than a few women’s women), everyone should carry a pocketknife. What really sucks is how airlines won’t allow passengers to carry them anymore. I call bullshit. Flying out of a place like Missoula International, I can’t tell you how many guys I’ve seen stripped of the knives holstered on their belts, stowed there just after years of habit. I prefer a world where grizzled men have knives on their belts instead of fucking Blackberries anyway. It’s a travesty, is what it is.
