What is old is new again–Aaron is back. Andrew had a fancy photoshoot in the Artic with Kate Upton so he couldn’t be here. Can you blame him? I am just kidding about the Kate Upton thing. Aaron from www.practicallyeveryday.com stepped in to help out.

New and News:
We both comment on the triumphant release of the Tuffthumbz Tanic. If you can hear a lump in my voice and the American flag flapping behind me as I speak about how awesome it is to see someone reach for their dream and achieve, well good for you. I am sentimental sap. What can I say?
We also discuss the quirky and slightly disappointing Spyderco Southard.
I talk about a $7 pen, yep, a pen. The Tombow Airpress is a quirky, rights anywhere alternative to the Fisher Space Pen. It is a Japanese pen that pressurizes the refill when the knock extends the writing nib. And it is $7. Super cool.
Finally we discuss the new LL Bean high end soft shell hoodie, marketed as a hunting jacket, but clearly aimed at the TAD Gear Stealth Hoodie.
Aaron talks about the new Dave Coye Whiskey 2 Ti Framelock Flipper. Its a big blade, 4.25″ and the second run is open but filling up fast.
Main Topic: Knife Terms
Aaron and I go on a wandering journey through various knife terms. It was intended on being a glossary of sorts, but it really became a ranking and discussion of preferences with a few definitions thrown in for good measure.

Special Gear Geeks Live What’s My Wife Cooking in the Background Bonus:
This week my wife was cooking Haluska in the background. It is a traditional Hungarian comfort food. It is also excellent this time of year because of the wide availability of cabbage, a central ingredient.
