    I'd ask your uncle and see if he owns up to it.

    It's long ago enough what could it hurt?

    Funny you say that cause I actually have asked him a couple of times and he denies having anything to do with it and has a shit-eating grin. Can never tell when that man is serious. He's an old-school practical joker/ funny guy. I just wonder what kind of knife it was. Back then the cheap flippers you can get a dime a dozen wernt around like they are now. Could've been a good collectors item now. Oh well I guess...

    Growing up, my Pa was a Copper in a big urban area where he was regularly dealing with folks that needed to look out for their own well-being as best they could as a normal part of their daily M.O. Various weapons were always a part of the equation but, for whatever reasons, confiscated knives weren't necessarily always turned in (or back over) during stops and arrests back then. (early-mid 60's - bullshit to be sure but it was a different time) Consequently, by the time I was 10 or 11 my dad had turned over to me a small duffel sack filled with a variety of knives for me to peruse and basically do with as I pleased. He saw it all as pretty harmless, I guess. I ended up with all kids of crappy knives over the years but every so often a nice one would become part of the mix as well. I remember a lot of cheap manual and automatic Italian stiletto-type blades in various states of disrepair along with the typical Pakistani crappola and "butterfly" style knives that proudly proclaimed "Kung Fu" in bold white letters plastered on their cheap plastic scales. The difference in quality, fit and finish between the various contenders for my affection began to become clearer and more obvious over the years and that was the genesis of my eventual obsession. I still have a few of those cheapies around to remind myself how far down the rabbit-hole I've gone. For some of us it's been a long, slow trip indeed.
