Insult and Injury

When you have an accident with a knife, almost cutting a finger off and requiring reconstructive surgery, you would think your friends would be sympathetic!  Yeah, you would really think that...

Old Yankee Safety Knives

The cover of the box set the stage:

Inside the box were two folding knives.  One had been glued closed with epoxy.  Actually, "glued closed" isn't entirely accurate -- it was more like the entire knife was embedded in a block of epoxy.  The second knife had its blade ground down dull -- so dull that the edge was roughly as sharp as the back of the blade.

These knives were the only ones Mrs. Yankee allowed the Old Yankee to use for quite some time...
