Lets see your work blades while on the job
Here’s my Ontario Model 1 posing in the oilfield
Here's my GSO necker about to open some boxes of shoes at work.
Is that a wooden turtle your mora is on?
lol yes. A wooden turtle that needed a repair job
Haha cool I like it.
Caulking a log sided cabin in Northern Wis. The gaps are so large I can stuck my knife right into them. I took this picture to show the homeowner why the caulk lines are so wide.
I had to join in the fun.
Pacific handy cutter s4 left handed
- quick change blade
- 5 blade storage
Modified sheath for quick draw and reupholstering.
I wanna play too. Notice the shine is gone from six or seven years of daily carry.
Staging linemen in the Carolinas and Virginia, to assist with power restoration as soon as Florence is done doing her damage. GETS helps you make contact with emergency workers when the phone lines are overloaded.
Mine while I finish paperwork for my new job
Work Order 13082: Replace damaged plug end on large portable fan.
(Used the knife to cut the insulating sheath)
This is how big the gap was above the garage door trim. I have a hard time understanding why someone would do such shoddy work. And a funny thing, this garage butts up against a neighbor lot, and there are brushy trees about ten feet behind the garage, so that wall isn't very visible...well....the siding job done on the back wall had the best fitting cuts if the whole project....
That looks like typical construction in the Poconos. It could even be a show piece.
Most of my job is indoors, so knife use tends to be un-bushcrafty. But a knife does get used. This was from a One Knife Challenge a year or two ago:
When you work around salt water, a rust-proof knife is a handy thing. My Pacific Salt goes to work with me most days.
I’d love to play but I would be terminated for having a “weapon” on company property.
The ground lug was broken inside of it (as you can see). The results of someone snatching the cord to unplug the fan...
I'm retired but I served as the Chaplain for our local Police Department. I carried this knife because it was good at cutting seat belts.
That sucks man. It seems like more and more companies are allowing workers to carry knives again though. I saw a mail man in New York carrying what looked like a Turley green river on his belt...
^^^^^ That is just wrong.
It will forever be too soon. I was reading along all on board and suddenly the comment turned and I was all like
My new knife from @Poeschel . Makes quick work of electrical tape on my wire heads for pulling through conduit.
Same here... Granted I work inside a jail.. But still lol
No "weapons" at work for me. I still carry a leatherman skeletool discreetly even though I don't think I'm supposed to.
I work for target. We aren’t even allowed to bring silverware for our food. They provide plastic.
Wow! Gotta love working for a company that is so scared of violence, that you can’t even bring your own silverware for fear of being stabbed with a fork
Apparently a Jail with murderers and rapists is less strict than target... Interesting lol
Currently a blacksmith/rancher after designing medical imaging systems for a long while... cattle are currently at the butcher, so pics of cutting bails will have to wait, but here goes:
It may not look like a knife now, but after lots of manipulation...
Infant knives normalizing after forging...
Knives ready for heat treat:
Knives ready for handles...
Knife whos sole purpose is cutting sandpaper to round:
Knives in progress at the forge...
Knives ready for grinding (and billets ready to be re-welded):
Knife out of the quench.
more to come - testing knives...
I know they sell knives at Target, who do they get to stock them and how do they avoid becoming bloodthirsty murderers?
(please do not answer if it will get you in trouble)
Interesting. I'm a flow tl in Springfield, va. I think that's more of your target. We allow silverware here. They dont want to see "oversized" knives though
Our own team members stock them.
My store doesn't object to silverware. Must be a thing at his store. However I did get in "trouble" for forgetting to take off my esee3, had to stop working and put it in my office. I really wish they didn't see it as a weapon but as a tool.
I had a buddy that went to a target store. The ap(security) there tried to tell him guns weren't allowed......no signs no indicators...he kept walking in. The kid was immediately corrected by a police officer that he called.
Figured I'd post a picture of my normal work carry since I finally touched up the edge last night.
Better judged by 12 than carried by 6.
I'm willing to face the music, rather then be a victim .
I refuse to go with out my tools .
There have been few events that I was asked to lend a hand and provide tools for the problem ,my knife being one of them and no one questioned me .
Most of my jobs had no issues with knives being some of the work included such tools .
I have had theaters ask me to put my knife inside my bag, fearing it might make some one nervous, or some one might try to take it from me . You comply, it's no big deal.
Theaters now know me, and some don't even bother to ask to look in my bag any more but I offer just to put their mind at ease .
Thanks for the answer Luchtaine. Guess I should have realized they have individual store policies. For what it's worth, the stores in Hampton and Williamsburg have kitchen knives at least, and the Target website lists pocket knives too.
For the record I work at T-3802 distribution center not at a store. We had a start up meeting a few weeks ago reminding us of the no pocket knife policy. I am in a rural area and they also reminded us guns stored in the truck even for hunting season would be grounds for immediate termination. Now to be fair they don’t go looking someone has to report it. No silverware has always been a policy at the DC as well and the provide plastic ware.
As far as concealed carry in a target store goes. Legally (at least here in NY) it’s not a crime. If the store has signs posting that they don’t allow guns in the store they do have the right to refuse to let you be there and have you removed from the premises if need be if you won’t comply. Target made a stand wth their anti-gun policy a few years ago that made big news. I haven’t paid attention to what extent they actually followed through though.
If only Target knew the knives and "weapons" that were in the pockets of many of it's guests....
I'm an IT Admin, and today our third-party hosted Exchange email system is down; I'm between checking for status updates so no knife necessary (a CS FinnWolf is in my pocket, Mora Companion SS in my laptop bag) so instead, here are some sketches in a gridbook of some knives I'd like to make or have made.
Can we get back on track with pictures of knives at the workplace please and thank you
i used to work for the "fun fascists" (aka Target ETLs)! they actually confiscated and destroyed my personal box cutter because, even though i purchased it from target and it was SAFER than the "approved" box cutter that deployed itself in my pocket constantly, it wasn't the "approved" box cutter.
To be fair, I did post a picture of knives while at my workplace... they may not exist off the paper (yet), but they are knives, in spirit at least. I hear what you're saying though, sidetrack convo on corporate politicking.
Office duty! Breakfast today
Nice Benchmade! Always like to see non-traditional colored handles too.
i cant help but point out that (oh, the irony) Target's Logo is a TARGET!! hahahhaha..
sorry, i am on a carb high from my bagel..hehehhe.. back on track friends.
