Episode 12

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.

VDP:

Aaron:

RJ Martin Overkill and McGizmo Haiku Hi CRI edition

Me:

Charles Gedraitis Small Pathfinder and Muyshondt Aeon Mk. II

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.
