It’s kinda got that crudeness you expect of old Italian stuff, but it’s a stout and sturdy knife with some serious heft. I always liked the Kris pattern blade, and while this one isn’t sharp- yet- it will be, and then I’ll be tickled to carry it.

I have always loved the Inspector Morse series, and the Lewis that came after them, and the Endeavor that came before. Tonight’s Endeavor included a good deal of great music, including “Un Bel Di” which is a favorite.

In “Silence of the Lambs” Hannibal carves up couple cops in Memphis while calmly listening to the Goldberg Variations. I have decided that if I ever lose my shit, I want “Flower Duet” to be the soundtrack.
