The Kerambit Handicap
« on: May 19, 2016, 01:43:51 AM »

    "There's an old story going around about me and a kermabit. The tale goes that during a seminar, lunch break, in the 1990s, a guy walked up to me and showed me his kerambit, and I looked at it, opened a nearby window and threw it out the window of a two-story building. This isn't true. I would never do that to a guy's property. I can say confidently that not only would I be so rude as to throw his out a 2-story window, I would never throw my own kerambit out a window either, because I would never own one in the first place.
     Being somewhat in the business of knives, I am all too often shown kerambits and asked questions about kerambits. You know, the curved bladed knife that looks like a single animal claw. Some folks think they are Godís gifts to knives. And I am shown and see way too many karembits. I see photos and photos of them in the web. God, they look cool. All kinda science-fictiony. Klingon-like. Deadly. Tiger-paw looking. I can honestly proclaim I have never seen a kerambit I didnít think was very, cool looking. Wow!
     Lord knows I donít want to be attacked by one. But I donít want one. Donít need one. Donít want one. Because of the Karembit Handicap. I hope I can..."

I feel like I'm defacing this website, writing all over it like a bandit!  Then the thought of Humphry Bogart disarming the body guard in The Maltese Falcon made me laugh because I just couldn't see ole Bogart with a Karambit.
