Showing off stabby things

The Pistolero is showing off his cool knife. It's nice.

Here's mine.

It's a Buck, a brand I've always been partial to. But I don't use this particular knife very much.

Why not? you say. Well, take a closer look.

Yep, that's George Strait's mug on that blade. A special edition knife, this is. So, since it's very nice, and I don't want to subject poor George's face to any mundane nastiness, I just can't bring myself to use it like a regular blade. As such, it usually just sits inside its special sheath.

Do you have any special knives that you can't bring yourself to use?

Oh, dude, that is fine. When did you get that?

My dad got it for me, about ten years ago. I think he ordered it directly through George Strait's marketing company. Here's a flyer from 1999 I found online that advertises the same knife. I don't know if you can still get it or not.

You might want to not leave it in the sheath for long-term storage. The leather can cause corrosion on the metal in a humid climate like this.

Hm. I hadn't thought of that. I suppose I could put it on display.
