Surely you didn’t think I would go out in the field and not do a little checking around as to the type of knife Boulderers (the participants of Bouldering) use, did you?

Here is what I learned while in a big outdoor shop in Birmingham, where all the guys working there are into Bouldering. The number one seller among the sport, at least according to their knives sales, is the Montu made by Columbia River Knife and Tool Company.

I wanted let you know I did ask around, because I doubted those around me climbing rocks carried an Elephant Toenail, and I heard you snicker when you read I had carried mine.
