Carrying a pocket knife- the way things used to be

vintage_boy_scou1Kids today carry cell phones, not pocket knives. Unfortunately, most parents today would freak out if their son or daughter pulled a knife out from their pocket.

Want to hear what it was like to be a boy carrying a knife back years ago, then listen to Robert Simpson share with us what it was like when he was a boy. It is entitled- Nostalgia- the fine art of selective memory.

Got Knives to Sell? What are the options today?

cnjspotlightfinalSo, you have a few knives to sell, what direction do you go? Stick them on eBay? Sell to a dealer? Or post them in a forum?
