Your Order Has Shipped July 29, 2010

I tend to get a lot of email during the course of a day so I have to go through my inbox regularly to keep it from getting out of hand. But there’s one email that I like seeing as it pops into my inbox. It’s a message from Amazon telling me that my order has shipped. I like getting those emails. It means that in just a few days I’ll have a package on my doorstep.

I received a “Your Order Has Shipped” email earlier this week. Yesterday, true to Amazon’s word, a package was delivered to my home. Inside the shoebox sized package were two knives I’d ordered recently.

Both knives are manufactured by Columbia River Knife & Tool (CRKT). As with most of my purchases, I did a fair amount of research before I made a buying decision. I read review after review that touted the knives so I have high expectations for them.

I intend to carry one of them, the M16-13T, as my everyday pocket knife. It’s a little big for that, but the size is offset a bit due to it’s light weight. The handle is made out of titanium so it’s incredibly strong yet not excessively heavy.

The second knife is noticeably larger and wouldn’t serve well as an everyday pocket knife. The size and weight would make it cumbersome. Besides, it would probably alarm anyone around if pulled it out to open a box at a client’s. Yes, it’s that scary looking. I intend to Cathy this knife while in the woods on camping trips. It’ll make a great survival knife.

I’ve only had these two knives in my possession for a day now, but I really like them. They seem solid and well balanced.

Wondering where Timothy is in that photo up top!

I guess I need to update the picture up top. It was made before Timothy was born.

Maybe you should just wait a few months and then you will have FIVE kiddos in the picture.

I’ll probably need a camera with a panoramic view. 🙂
