My father in law passed away several years ago. He was an avid outdoorsman and drove a logging truck through the forests of the Northwest for over 50 years; almost up until the day he died. One day the knife below fell out a box of his old things. It’s not valuable and it has a big chunk taken out of it, but it has sentimental value, and that’s why I have been using it in my blog photos.
At first I thought it was just a ruler and put it on the shelf. One day I was looking at it and I noticed that it a seam on it, so I pulled it apart. I was surprised to see that it was a knife! A well designed knife, since it’s a fisherman’s knife that floats. And the markings indicate that it is made in Japan, a country with a long history of making good steel.
