So I bought this new Scotty Downrigger for my boat.It was tied toa cardboard
display box with heavy Nylon Tie Straps, no problem,I always carry a Buck Knife
on my belt. I try to cut the Tie strap and think to myself "Boy thesetie strapsare tough"
A little history here- I've worked in the bush falling,using chain saws,axes,
knives,hunting,skinning animals,fishing,filleting, all my life you name it I've done it and never had a mishap.
Back to the story: The first Tie strap finally cuts through. One more to go. I start
cutting the second one an it snaps, "Ouch". There's my buck knife stuck in the soft part of my thumb on the opposite hand.
You dummy I said under my breath,down to the emergency for 2 stitches
I will never cut another tie strap with a knife,Thats why I have...yes you said it...
