Here's one you can't get at the store - this handmade knife came a little late for Christmas but it's a rare treat nonetheless. The wicked-looking thing was fashioned from an old SKS bayonet, and the maker ground and heated and hammered it into a knife. Complete with a brass hand guard and antler handle, it's proof our system is hard at work. Having tried to make knives a few times over the years, i'm duly impressed by the time that must have gone into it. Somebody put a fair amount of effort into delivering it too. Why? Because the old friend who made it for me, well, he has a little temper problem that landed him in prison for almost 7 years now. Now see? They CAN learn in there! heh heh - Kinda makes a person wonder, doesn't it? :)

DC, sometimes I worry about you!! Not often or very long, but sometimes I worry.

Well DC, knife making is one of the most popular activities in America's prisons, today. Usually refered to as a "shive" or "shank", that one sure shows it prison lineage. The handle on it is certainly above average. Excellent for thrusting and usually applied by a strong thrust upwards, under the ribcage and into the vital organs of the victim. Over the years, in prisons, I've seen them used quite effectively on several occasions.

You can repay him with a file in the cake!

A guy I used to work with makes knives of all kinds.

Or i could send him a quarter and a spoon. (If they allowed spoons) Remember those coins we tapped into rings years ago? Used to take days of tapping to curl those edges over. If they came out right, you could still read the date inside ...
