    I had to get a new small pocket knife.

    My wife and I had tickets to see Buddy Guy at the Paramont theater. Near the door was a sign saying what was not allowed and near the top of the list was knives. We had taken the bus into Denver, so there was no car to go back to. We were instructed to empty our pockets and I just showed one of the security guards the knife. She said "You can not take that in" so I handed it to her. Before she took it she was very emphatic that if I gave her the knife, she could not give it back, so I made it clear that I understood and handed it to her and went in to see the show.

    It was not an expensive knife, a Buck Revel, but I really liked it and it is no longer in production. The ones on the bay are way overpriced. I replaced it with a Kershaw Hotwire.

    One of my new requirements for a small light knife is that I can throw it away without a care in situations like this, and the new knife certainly fits this requirement $10.

    Sorry to hear that, Victor. Having young kids is nice as I’ve been known to bury things like that in the diaper bag so as not to donate them to security.

    Over 40 years ago I managed to slip my Buck folder in a flower box and retrieve it after the show. Peter Frampton was awesome!


    Guess I did not learn. A few years ago my daughter and I were seeing Robert Earl Keen....
    Had my Case green bone russlock with a pocket-clip on board.
    Told her about it and she said 'put it in here' holding her purse open.
    She covered it with some hair extensions that were in there.
    They won't go past that, said she.
    Made me take off my belt to inspect the buckle but never went past the hairy glob in her purse.
    Gave it back after the show and found she had a HUGE folder and a can of mace under there as well!

    The visual inspection was followed by a wand in this case, so that wouldn't have worked. Could even be worse if it looked as though I was trying to sneak in a weapon. I'm keeping the whole thing in the 'no big deal' category.

    Yeah, it sucks to be accused of trying to sneak in a weapon when it's a tool that goes in when the pants go on.
    The days we live in, I reckon.

    Right front pocket is a Ken Onion Leek. I consider it the "town knife".
    When it's working pants, there's also a Ken Onion Blur (smooth edge).
    Now I gotta go back and see what other folks are carrying.

    I guess I won’t go to these freaking dink run concerts. I wouldn’t even check my gun much less my knife, f them,, I go to lots of concerts their at every bike rally and ain’t never gave them up. The day the security and the cops give them up I will. Sorry you lost a good knife, she should have given it back ,, she’s an f@#*&ing thief
    Even better advise, " don't impede on a 850# Harley with me aboard, then I don't care what your driving, my 10 takes care of it"

    She was actually pretty nice about warning me that if I gave it to her she could not return it, actually pulling her hand back a bit as if to say 'are you sure?'.The way she said it led me to believe that it was a strict policy thing.

    Brother-in law told me there is a store in Chattanooga that sells all the knives and such taken from airline passengers.

    My current EDC. Not the best, but it does its job. Nice and sharp, and if I happen to drop it off a 300ft cell tower while at work, it's easily and cheaply replaceable.
