At the risk of sounding…”crazy”, I have to say that I love blades, knives that is.
Ha, not in a “I want to cut flesh” kind of way but, in a “I appreciate the construction and design of a good knife”.
I appreciate it as a tool. Its one of the simplest and most useful created by man. I know a lot of people prefer guns but, if you were to be dropped out in the middle of the wilderness, a good knife is a better option for survival, offensively and defensively, over a gun. Theres so much you can do with a blade.
The design and feel of a good knife blade can be downright hypnotizing, if I do say so myself. I do likes ma’blades and apparently, my characters do too. At least three of my Protagonists use/used knives: Christine in “Things People Do”, Warren in “Pushed”, and Tammy in “Two-Sided Triangle”.
I wouldn’t call myself a collector but, here’s a few that I’ve acquired over the years as you can see.
Do you have a tool/weapon of choice? Come on, be honest with yourself!
