    Define Normal

    This morning, I was making a quick breakfast and I was standing by the toaster, waiting for my bagel to pop. I grabbed the butter took some onto my Harner petty knife and started to butter my bagel, which was just cut with the same knife. At this point I realized this surely isn't normal, or even close to normal, is it? Then I thought back on my past few days, while at home, and distinctly remembered doing the following things:

    Opened up a box with a handmade knife by Mike Davis.

    Measured the size of a cake we were ordering with a 210 Misono gyuto as a reference.

    Cut gauze with 3 different pocket knives, a 150 Marr petty, and something that resembles two knives with funny handles, hinged in the centre with a single rivet.

    During a casual conversation with my wife, I caught myself leaning on the counter, checking out the grinds on various knives. And she didn't even think anything of it!

    Squeezed in two sharpening sessions with only one good hand.

    Caught myself thinking, "it's a good thing my SAK work knife was in my bunker pants pocket at the fire, because if I had it clipped to my coat, the scales would have melted and I bet the temper would be all screwed up".

    Decided I definitely need a Spyderco Tasman so I have two knives on me at work.

    And I'm sure the list goes on and on, but my hand is tired from entering this post on my phone, with only one hand.

    Do you find yourself looking at a coffee table and wondering what a handle made from that wood would look like?

    No, I am considering whether I really need the table or not, because I could get a bunch of handle wood from it.

    Whenever I see a yard sale or second hand store I look for old burl coffee tables.
    I have ended up cutting quite a few.

    BTW: we don't use the "N" word around here.
