I own this Blackjack 1-7 and have had it since I bought it new in the mid '80s sometime while the Effingham plant was still producing.  It's a limited edition with white imitation ivory Dymar…Continue

Love to see and hear about any of you with Effingham and pre-Effingham Blackjacks. These are the knives that put Blackjack on the map! Where did you find them? Was it a deal, or one of those knives…Continue

Since someone "tried" to sharpen my Wasp and completely messed it up, I am slowly re-profiling mine (ouch) to make it a usable edge once again, and since that will pretty much kill the collector value, I guess I will have a very expensive boot knife. LOL.

So, there I was, sitting in the Chat Room (I know, right?? Who'd a thunk it??) and somehow the topic in the room gets around to packages in the mail and whatnot. Just at that moment, my kid heads up to the mailbox to check what's there. Jan asks me if I've received anything yet. I figured she meant the knife sharpener that I am waiting very patiently for. (Ya right!! HURRY UP!!) "Nope", says I...must still be stuck in that magic place between countries that I believe lies somewhere under Chicago. Deep under...then Jan asks if I got anything from her. Nope as well...I didn't think I should be waiting for anything else. Enter kid...

"Nothing for you, Dad...just stuff for Mom."

Silly me, I believe him. Sooo...as I am up grabbing a coffee, I happen to double check...lo and behold, the name on it is mine, not the wife's! (Says alot for my kid's education, huh??) so I wander to the couch and am looking at this..

Well now. A day with a surprise parcel is almost always a good one, right?? Sooo...after fetching my ZT0300 Parcel Removal and Extraction Tool (PRAET...gonna copyright that) I got to work. What I wasn't expecting was this...

To Be Continued...says I am over 4000 characters. ??

Blackjack?? Never heard of them...HAHA...sorry...anyway...after picking my jaw up off the floor where it had dropped to, unbeknownst to me, I started to open the box. I'll admit, fingers were kinda shakey! Pretty excited! And to my utter amazement, I behold this! A Blackjack I never even knew existed! Drumroll please!!! ( Hog, that's your cue! Drumroll away!! )

A Blackjack Tactical Pen!!! Holy Crap!! And what does it say right on it?? You guessed it!

If you'd have thrown me in the creek right then, you'd have been skimming Stunned for a week! I honestly couldn't believe it!

So, of course, I had to go change into a more appropriate article of clothing to accentuate my newest treasure! ( Okay...I put on a shirt with a pocket...sheesh...) and now I shall flaunt it the rest of the day through!

So...THANK YOU, Jan! I truly appreciate the wonderful, unexpected gift, and rest assured, that pen will be my undisputed EDC for many weeks to come!

...and here I thought I was getting a pie! :P
