      I always preferred a chinese cleaver. I used it more than anything else.
      They told me if I voted for Hillary Clinton the president would be emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable. They were right. I voted for Hillary Clinton and got a president that is emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable.

      I'm not saying you're stupid. I'm saying you have bad luck when it comes to thinking.

            I've carried a Leatherman for over 20 years. Don't leave home without it.

              If I had to choose just one tool it would be a Leatherman.

                  Strap a Marine K-Bar from your bunker coat... That will solve all your problems.

                      That knife seems decent, and I also carry something similar to that, but get yourself a nice Gerber or Leatherman Multi-tool. Ya know, the one with pliers, and knives, and all that good stuff. You'll find it very, very damn useful.

                        Don't be swayed by "Rescue" or "Firefighter" in any advertising. I'll tell you my Leatherman is just for Firefighters if you'll pay an extra $20. Gerber makes a good product but they're standard Multi-tool is more versitale than the Rescue Tool.

                          This addage is not exclusive to hand tools. Anything that is made for firefighters will cost at least 10 percent more.

                            Dang, you beat me to it.

                            My son-n-law got me a leatherman a couple years ago. Nice tool.

                              Which Bowie? The folk singer phase, Garbo phase, Ziggy Stardust, The Thin White Duke/plastic sould phase, Tin Machine era or electronica?
