Poor Impulse Control

I took advantage of the tax-free weekend by picking up a couple pairs of pants and some shirts at Cabela’s.  They told me during checkout that they could hem the pants for me while I waited.  Usually I end up taking them to a local tailor, but that often takes a week and costs extra.  However, I didn’t want to wait around on Sunday (amidst the crowd), so I went back this afternoon to have them done.  I had about 30 minutes to kill while I was waiting, so I ended up wandering about the store.

In my wanderings I found myself at the knife counter.  I’m not usually much of a knife person, but something about this one just called my name as soon as I saw it:


It ended up jumping out of the display case and coming home with me.

I really need to work on this whole impulse control thing…

    Cabela’s can be dangerous that way.  On my first trip in, a Savage Model 5 .22 rifle followed me home, and a Mosin Nagant 91/59 damn near did also.

    Ain’t it great!?!

    Nice looking Gerber knife!  What is its model nr?

    Can’t find it at either the Cabela or Gerber site.



  3. It’s a Freeman S30V.  Finding it on the website is kind of difficult, since it’s listed under fixed blade knives, even though it’s a folder.  I think this is because the rest of the knives in the S30V family are all fixed blade.

    Anyhow, here’s a link to it on the website.
