There's a new knife....in my pocket!
Camera: Fuji X20 
Posted By: Rupert, 01-15-2016, 06:52 AM

Hey, old Norm's got nothin' on me! This is what I got from Mrs Rupert for Christmas.......she got gold, pearls, fancy cowboy boots, clothes...and a new credit card with a big line of credit. This is what I got.....a small black Buck pocket knife. Fact is...it's all I wanted...I've got everything else imaginable....except a FF Pentax.


Sure...my knife isn't as big as Norm's...but my cheese is better!

Yep....my shot is not as good as Norm's either.....but my cheese is still better!

My cheese is "prepared".....what can be better than that?

Regards!

Yep that cheese is ready to go. Prepared for anything. You can even cut it with a knife.

Yep...and it's even pasteurized and only 40 calories a slice! Hard to beat Velveeta with all that "real cheese" stuff!

Regards!

I'm a fan of Buck knives. Xmas 2014 I received (from my wife) a Buck 110, 50th Anniversary.

I like it so much, I'm hesitant to use the 110. But my will to not use it and just keep it as new...is wavering.

I practically lived on Velveet and wonder Bread at times

that's a really nice pocket knife, and one can never have too many.

Great shot.

Long live Velveeta! ....and it will, it has a shelf life of over 100 years I am told!

Cheese snobs hate it, but melt it and add a can of Rotel and you have a dip that even the snobs can't resist!

Regards!

Hey, Rupert, everybody should carry a pocket knife and I like the traditional ones like yours. In fact, I gave both my son-in-laws Case knifes that clones of yours.

Velveeta is indeed a remarkable substance; better living through chemistry.

Rupert, never mind the cheese the knife looks OK but it has only two blades. Where is the cane opener, the nail clipper and the scissors? I don't see a screwdriver or a leather punch either and where is the compass?

Seriously, it's a good picture of a classic knife that anyone would be proud to carry.

Take care,

In 1992(?) a local sporting goods store was closing out Buck 110 Damascus. They had 2. A redbone scale and a brown bone; $80.00 each. I bought the redbone.
I wasn't smart enough to buy both of them.

It took me a long time to learn the life lesson, that it's wise to buy the best you can afford. I've got a few Bucks..... knives that is...I'm still IMO, too short on the green bucks .

As far as Buck knives go, one is a Buck 119 that I keep in my vehicle emergency kit and I have a couple of light weight, pocket Buck folders, in addition to my 50th Anniversary 110 folder.

I bought my son a Buck 119 and a lightweight buck. He keeps the 119 in his Jeep's emergency kit.

We spend some free time going down back roads in heavily forested (Boreal) areas. Although both of our vehicles are newer, you never know when you're going to get stuck or break down in a isolated area. As a result we carry Buck 119's which I'm sure would prove useful, for general use in situations like this.

Good, quality knives....my idea of fine cutlery.

I have never bought anything that was high quality and later wished I'd bought junk instead.

Fortunately, (I don't think) Velveeta has been sold in Australia for many years. A forum "Yanks Down Under" laments the lack of Velveeta in Oz. I don't think the vile looking American orange coloured cheese is available, either.

Our taste buds are obviously better tuned than American ones.
