    Belt Knife

    Tired of losing knives, I was thinking about making one that was part of my belt, so I made one of 420 stainless steel. This discreetly hides in the belt taking advantage of the shape of the buckle.

    Very clever. I used to carry a pocket knife all the time. Came in handy so many times, for things too numerous to mention. Someone at lunch would be struggling to cut an apple or orange at lunch with a plastic knife, I would slip it out to let them use it. Then, being a teacher, I had to stop carrying it to school.

    Do people look at you funny when you get that out to open a box, or slice your apple at lunch, etc.

    Thanks Mikhandmaker, for a very well made video. Very soothing to have with my first coffee, being very quiet before anyone else is up.
