Yes! I was out in the city a few weeks ago and i had my balisong trainer and the waitress of a restaurant saw it in my pocket and called it a switchblade. Absolutely ridiculous!

Don't worry, most people don't know where their @$$ is, either.

I don't ever hear anyone calling SB's evil...but the word dangerous is mentioned. I pay no.attention as I keep mine in a curio cabinet and only bring them out when asked by a guest or just get the itch to hold one. The S&W .38 stays close by for GP.

I find that many times at my work I need the use of a one handed knife. I carry a Ravencrest RCT1 org knife daily. There is nothing EVIL about doing my job and God forbid that it never happens but if I ever need it for self defence I have no doubts on its performance.

Was that the switchblade or the needle for the record player?
Set your goals low and your standards lower and you're gonna have good luck with the girls.
