I got some booty for my birthday and I didnt have to make a booty call to get it, now thats some good booty. Pirate booty that is, I got some goods. I got some beach trekker shoes since I prefer barefoot or sandals this was a happy middle. I got an azurite necklace since I am hippified like that and I wear that kind of thing with my barefeet or sandals, and I got a new knife and a case to carry my knives around in from this guy that I have known for 30 years now.
All in all it was a great haul and the knife gift was out of the blue and a big surprise, I even got to pick it out. This Japanese beauty came from Korin. It is a fine damascus steel santoku gem that I will cherish forever. I dont have a lot of knives but I dont have a few either and each one is treated with care from my humble little pocket knives up to my custom made sushi knives. I have had a knife in my pocket for as long as I can remember. My grandfather gave me my first pocket knife when I was about 8 or 10 and I still have it. I have some inexpensive kitchen knives that I use constantly and my good kitchen knives that I use as much, all my knives get some 'play' now and again, and a rag tag collection it is!
