I have that exact knife, it's been residing in my desk drawer in my office for about 25 years, perhaps longer, and I can't even recall where or how I got it, but believe it was given to me back in the 80s. I use it to open packages/mail mostly.

Here's one from Bark River called the City Knife. The wallet/sheath holds an ID, credit/debit card, and a little cash. I carry this one daily, it fits nicely in a back pocked and comes in handy from time-to-time.

Honestly most officers are far more reasonable they they often get credit for, despite some bad apples. Of the very small number of interactions I have had with them while I was in possession of a knife or firearm none of them have been tense or problematic. Last time I was rear ended by another car I had a J-Frame revolver in a small of the back holster. When the local officer asked for my id I informed him I had my pistol in the back of my belt near my wallet with my permit. His only reply was "If you do not pull yours I will not pull mine". A few minutes and a bit of paperwork later everyone was on their way with no drama.

Unless you live in some Police State location like California just giving the officer a heads up about what you have on your person that could be considered a weapon will go a long way to making it a smooth and uneventful interaction.

Swung by and talked to the guy (good guy) that's doing the framing.

He said that there was a couple of funeral arrangement flower boxes (dried flowers) ahead of us that were really delicate and hard to work with, so that's why it's taken so long.

Fortunately the saber is the next thing in line to be done and showed us the box it's being mounted in. Looks fantastic.

He's had essentially all he can take of that job, but he was so excited about mounting the sabre (flowers and pictures are all he's used to working with) that he wanted to stay long enough to make sure that he at least got that done.

I like the way you think, a couple of times a year i stop by Ethan Becker's house, i like to dual sport ride on the trails near his place, last time i stopped by he gave me one of those Becker Necker's and i wrapped the handle in para cord.
Ethan is a real good guy, his wife is cool too, they live on the river about 30 miles from me.
