I finally have this beautiful pocket knife in my hand. It is a custom left-handed gentleman’s folding pocket knife with exposed flip-stem for one-handed opening. The body is African Blackwood enclosing a hardened steel blade. The flip action is light and smooth and within a few tries am able to quickly open and close the knife with ease. The grip fits well in the hand and the moving parts have an elegance and refinement of fit forged with much care and attention.
After watching an episode of Parks and Recreation where a hilarious Ron Swanson quote inspired me to transcribe the quote. I then wanted an icon for the document of Ron’s quotes so Googled “Ron Swanson”. I came across a site featuring Nick Offerman and his talent as a Woodworker. Yes Ron Swanson in real life is a man’s man. Nick Offerman it turns out is a highly skilled woodworker. He started is career as an actor / theatre set builder. He has even built his own canoe. To us sterile of manual ability city folk , this might not even register but a truly talented woodworker only achieves boat building level after decades of mastering the craft. Nick Offerman is for real. He can fish, craft just about anything from wood, including a cabin and of course is hilarious. We need more people like Ron Swanson on this planet…I mean Nick Offerman.
