    I had a cheap swiss army knife. Side note: the corkscrew apparently wasn't actually meant to be used-it snapped off the first time I tried to use it.

    awesome necropost @Balibuyer !

    i’m not sure why but i don’t trust my kids with knives yet

    my first knife was a sak tinker. my dad gave it to me when i crossed from weblo to tenderfoot. still have it

    i was very into knives as a kid and still am as a grownup kid

    in 4th grade i wrote a short story called “One knife to live”..... still have it (my mother watched a lot of soaps LOL)

    in 5th grade a friend and i got caught with butterfly knives and had to cut soup labels for a week or so. i buried it in my parents backyard and never found it years later when i looked.

    i love knives

    The first knife I remember, was a Camillus US knife with big blade, screw driver/bottle opener, can opener, and leather awl. Like this one....

    Different times. I carried that knife to school every day for many years. Now, a picture will get you suspended.... :wtf:

    Dude, that is pretty freakin awesome.

    Just about everything I got or did as a kid, I can look at my oldest and say NOPE..YOU CAN FORGET IT BUD. And then you'll usually ask yourself, "what the hell was mom or pop thinkin?" Knowing that of course they MOSTLY had it all under control.

    We'd leave the house early summer mornings on our bikes...pellet guns laid across the bars, knives in our pockets, MREs in our backpacks. And off in the woods we went.....FOR LIKE ALL DAMN DAY.

    I can't/ don't let my kids out of my sight....ANYWHERE. Why? Hell if i know.....Never had any bad situations throughout life that would make me parent the way I do today. I'm like the Risk Accessor that Ben Stiller was on Along Came Polly. Always thinking about what could or might happen.

    I'm not super uptight by any means....just always a super worried mother fucker LOL.

    Of course! You'd do anything for your kids you love them there's nothing wrong with being worried if anything I'd be a bit happy with that my parents always cared for me especially my mom but my dad would sometimes be kinda eh I remember the first day he introduced me to power tools and taught me how to use them he said to me look it's a power tool it's dangerous but if you cut your fingers off its on you I won't be the one without a finger:bwah: of course I knew he cared about me but he was really trustworthy in the fact that I knew what I was doing and it would have been a bit nice for him to be a bit cautious with me since there was things I wish I would have known like not getting iron sparks in your eyes but eh overall It would have been awesome to have a parent who did those things with me and I hope your kids enjoy spending time with you camping all day sounds amazing and I hope you guys are doing great!

    It's not his fault. He just cannot reach the punctuation keys on his keyboard because of the missing fingers.

    I don't remember my first knife, we had so many laying around and my pops was all to happy to show me how to use a knife, and shoot a gun lol. Don't get me wrong, he wasn't irresponsible or anything, and I'm grateful that he took the time to teach me. Probably why I never really cut myself as kid.
    I do remember my first butterfly knife tho! I was like 8 and this older kid pulled out this new type of knife I had never seen before, I wanted one the moment I saw it. He got bored with it and traded it to me for some pogs or something. I was so excited to flip it open that I flipped it open holding the bite handle and cut myself pretty good. I hid the cut from my parents and hid the knife in the woods lol. I knew they wouldn't let me keep it, my Dad wouldn't let me have a pellet gun, but said I could have a real one instead "you or a friend will shoot an eye out with a toy, a real one will stay under lock and key" or something like that lol, so I knew he wouldn't let me have a "useless dangerous knife". It had fake pearl handles and an unremarkable blade. It got stolen from my little hiding spot like 2 days later, probably by one of my "friends".
    The first knife I remember having was a hand me down Swiss army, I don't remember loosing it but I'm sure I did.

    I hear ya' - It scares the shit out me to think about my kids doing shit I used to do! In hindsight, I probably could have died on a couple occasions.

    Well, my first blade was a sword, Knights of Columbus sword my uncle gave me when I was in middle school, and technically first knife was a TINY peanut knife I won at a carnival. Mostly been into swords until recently I caught the $ bali bug.

    My first "Knife Knife" was a Swiss Army, but my first tool with an edge was some sort of multitool with a blade on the corner after it slid out. It was badass it had a compass little eyeglasses screwdriver. It had wrench cutouts on it it had a flathead driver it was cool. The swiss army was like the recruit but it had a sawblade it wasn't as crazy as the modern "camper" model it was a bit simpler. Great SAK I chipped the plastic on it and somewhere along the line it went missing I replaced it with a SAK recruit.

    My first pocket knife( age 10) was an Imperial multi blade folder. Black plastic handle scales, with the bail on one end. It cost me a whole quarter, at the corner store . I carried that knife for a long time, until I saved enough money to buy a Case slim line trapper. Which I purchased from the local hardware store. Back then we all had some brand of pocket knife in our pants pocket. Those blades took a beating!!!! I still have a fondness for those old style folders, and have drawers in one of my knife chests loaded with all brands that I pick up at flea markets , pawn shops etc...... most not for a quarter anymore. Lol!

    After months (years?) of nagging my dad for one and my mom saying I couldn't have one until I was 12 my Dad pulled a classic dad move and got me one when I was 7. I think he was tired of me escaping from my house (literally walking out the front door) and knocking door to door in my neighborhood and asking all the neighbors if they had any guns, knives or swords in the house and if they could show them to me. It's something I did everywhere. My grandpa still talks about me doing it in his neighborhood in San Antonio when I was 6 (which they were way cooler about than my home in Washington state).

    Like others in the thread I still have mine to this day. Just dug it out of my closet. Was this tiny Schrade "Uncle Henry"

    Got the whole knife safety talk from my dad and followed... most of his advice :firedevilI loved the shit outta that tiny little thing. Sharpened it a million times good ol fashion spit and stone style. Broke the tip off at one point (no pun intended). I lost it for like 5 years which was devastating since I always wanted the knife that started my collection to be a part of it. Found it in my late teens stuck in the top of a stump I used to play on as a kid. Polished it up and it's still with me.

    Women have come and gone, cars have come and gone, dogs have come and gone but old "Uncle Henry" has stuck by my side.
