Everyday objects

Pocket knives


Warren, Connecticut. I used to collect these things but then when I lost one to TSA just after 9/11 I stopped. No hard feelings, just can’t always remember to leave these things at home. Note the various one handed knives, the thin French fruit testing knife and the black Kershaw with the Damascus (folded steel) blade.

Truth be told, the very thin Swiss Army knife is in my pocket more than the others when I’m not doing outside chores. I use the larger Gerber/LL Bean nylon handle knife for chores.



A variety of flashlights including a Surefire headlamp that’s in my pack on hikes and two Surefire G2 lights, all of which run on CR123 batteries (in tube) which have a ten year shelf life.



I’ve had these for a while and they’re incredibly useful.
