busybee36 Every boy should have a knife! I had a pen made out of a bullet when I was younger - at least recycling them into knife handles and pens is a better use for them.

MARETKA88 As a small boy, i also was fascinated with knives. Probably because they were considered dangerous and i wasn't allowed to play with them. When my father gave me my first knife and taught me the dangers and also the postives that knives can bring...i thought i was the #1 shit on the block. Look Greggs dad gave him a knife...thats so cool !!! Until i almost cut the tip of my finger off in front of my friends, probably showing off....and thay were probaly thinking what ind of dad gives there son a knife....and what a dumb ass Gregg was being trying to show off what he could do with his new knife...cut the tip of his figer off.....thanks for the memories though !!!!

SADHYA I just love the way this series makes huge leaps, from a history of the world and the history of Everyman, to small details of The Life of Jon.
I also like how your posts provoke memories and anecdotes for other PBs.
