Flowers in Hawaii

“I did this one at home. This is a picture made by me with lots of colors and designs and stuff. I got the idea from the flowers in Hawaii. It took a long time. When I was finished, I thought it was a masterpiece.” – The Newt (6)

The Newt and DD told me to go look on the patio for a suprise visitor last night.


My First Benchmade

This was my first Benchmade knife, and one of my favorites. I think I got it around 1994 or so.

It has a tanto style blade with reverse serrations. The handle is very basic, smooth and with no guard to prevent your hand slipping down the blade. This knife is for slashing and cutting rather than stabbing.

At 9″ open, it’s a decent sized knife with a 4″ blade. I didn’t measure it, but I’d say the blade thickness is about 3/16″. It’s 5″ closed.

There are no markings other than ‘Benchmade  USA’ and the Bali-Song butterfly logo. I’d love to find out what model this is and who designed it. I either threw the box out long ago, or it’s sitting somewhere in the abyss called ‘the garage.’ If anyone has a clue, please comment.

This knife is also the only one I’ve ever dropped in a public toilet. 😛

American Airlines “Loses” Israeli PM’s Bodyguard’s Glocks

Glocks in Israeli PM’s bodyguard’s luggage on American Airlines flight have been lost stolen.

A bag belonging to agents travelling with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was mistakenly put on a flight from New York to Los Angeles, not to Washington.

Alarmingly the bag contained four 9mm Glock handguns, which are now missing.

By the time the luggage was located and recovered, the guns had disappeared, and are presumed to have been stolen.
