Blades [Jun. 1st, 2019|11:11 am]
Tony Grist
I've been picking and top-and-tailing gooseberries- which takes me right back to childhood. How old was I was I when I was given a paring knife and told to get on with it- eight or nine, perhaps? Younger anyway than would happen with my grandchildren I think. My parents generation was blase about blades. Small boys had sheath knives; I had two. I could have killed someone with them- but I didn't.

I had penknives too. I can remember carving my school desk.

Well, you and I are the same age. Both my brothers carried knives, and I have the one my Dad carried right here beside me. My MOM also carried one in her purse.

I have a small penknife on my key ring. The blade is short and fairly blunt but I find I use it all the time.

I always had atleast one knife on me. I loved to build little things from wood scraps and other things. I never hurt myself seriously but my hands were allways full of little cuts and scrapes, just like nowadays when I cook 😂

I carry a knife to this day. It's very small and blunt but it's in constant use.
