    I've bought some counterfeits (on purpose) and they're pretty easy to spot.  So far (to my knowledge) I've not been ripped off.   CPM steel is hard to counterfeit without using some sintered substitute. 

    Anyway, that's really good advise.

    Also, this:

    That's why I buy cheap pocket knives.  I have found the bad-guys don't counterfeit the cheap ones.

    thats why I only buy from trusted sites.  BladeHQ has been my go-to for umpteen years.   

    Regardless, good looking knife you have there.

    I will have to check out BladeHQ.  That isn't a site I am familiar with.  Thanks for that suggestion!

    Picked up a new to me pocket knife today.  Nothing fancy, but it was my wife's grandmothers knife. A swiss made Wenger.

    She stored cast iron pans in her pockets too.  Only way to explain how she always had one available to help with attitude adjustments.

    Growing up, I heard stories of my ancestors throwing cast iron pans across kitchens and dining rooms at one another, usually aimed above the neck.

    You don’t hear about that sort of thing these days.

    Your wife’s grandmother must have had some deep pockets…

    One night at the bar I went up and ordered a beer from the bartender. There was about 20 empty seats in front of the bar. There was a couple jackets laid over a couple seats where I ordered. I heard some chirping coming across the other side of the bar. Next thing I know I have a group of guys behind me demanding I move away from the jackets and need to order somewhere else. I essentially told him and his homies that they're going to wait until I finished ordering my beer. They didn't like that response. After some more threats and chirping and me not backing down he pulled out a chef knife from the inside pocket of his jacket. Little homie thought he was tough. I told him once again that I'm not moving and he's going to wait until I'm done being served. Now this caught the attention of my group who was on the other side of the room. (The reason why we were at the bar was to celebrate my buddy returning home from the Army) Now my buddy and his Army friends come over and these Wanksters aren't looking so tough anymore. During this entanglement one of the Army wives caught wind that their was a knife involved. She went and told the Police officer outside. Next thing you know these guys are getting handcuffed. The cops come back in for questioning and mention that these guys had all kinds of warrants out for their arrest. The officer says, "These guys are going away for a long time."

    Moral of the story....you can't fix stupid and jackets have big pockets.

    Moral of the story....you can't fix stupid and jackets have big pockets. 
    I had a group of friends who where at a bar one night, mostly empty bar, and some dude walked up and sat right in their seats.  Even right on a friends jacket.  He was smoking too and ashed all over his ol'ladies purse.  They asked him to politely move so they could grab their stuff.  He started to yell and scream and berate them.  "It's not their bar!  They have no right.  He was here first, no saving chairs!".  Guy went totally ape ****.  My buddy suddenly remembered he his chefs knife (stopped in after work) in his pocket and got worried the guy was about to start a fight.  Trying to be responsible my buddy pulled the knife out to hand it to another friend. He didn't want anyone to get hurt.  Well anyway, this guy's ol'lady starts screaming and throwing drinks and elbowed a friend's wife in the nose during the curflufle.  My buddy tried to calm her down, but by then the crazy one ran outside screaming.  Some local police saw the commotion and came over.  My buddies wound up getting arrested, mostly to shut the crazy lady up.  These people weren't even locals.

    Unfortunately my friends got jammed up because of some other issues.  All because a guy needed to show his wife and buddies that he was a billy badass and couldn't just move down a few chairs.

    I'm a pretty level headed guy. There wasn't a person 25' to the left or right or me at the bar. I walked up to the bar and ordered a drink. Like you said, "Billy Badass" thought he was going to tell me what to do. That wasn't going to happen. I told him exactly what I was going to do and did exactly that. It pissed him and his buddies off enough to pull out chef knife from his coat. I didn't faze me in the least. I want to say I started chuckling and shook my head. It was funny that this dude's ego was so butthurt that he felt pulling a knife was best solution. How could I not pi$$ all over the dude's ego. The charges these guys caught over nothing. I think his homies knew better not to cause some big fight between the two groups as their demeanor changed when my buddies weren't going to let that sh*t slide either. Both groups just kind of backed off and went their own ways. (Had no idea one of the Army wife's went and tracked down an officer outside.) It's still one of those stories that you look back on and say was that real? It's just so stupid. They were looking at hard time because their egos got hurt.

    Ego is a hell a thing. I am glad it all worked out, and glad you stood up to a bully.  I don't like to fight and never went looking for one, but all of them have been because bullies mistook my lack of rising to the bait as an unwillingness to actually fight.  I also found 9 out of 10 times bullies back down once they realize they have to actually back up their mouth.  Thankfully, haven't been in a fight since college.  Even if I won, I would be laid up for a week.  Just getting out of bed has been known to injure me.
