    Did think ‘don’t all knives have a laceration hazard’? Then I read it

    A knife recall is pretty pointless

    I’ll take a stab at judging the quality of the locking blade myself!

    This should be a friendly forum. I suggest we keep our cutting remarks to ourselves.

    I have one of those Victorinox multi tool pocket knives. Carry it all the time. I've had it forever. It seems a little odd that these particular knives are a hazard, purely based on them being a knife. :confused:

    They should recall beer ... It poses a drunkenness hazard ... And automobiles, which may pose a crashing hazard...

    .

    I needed a picture to know which one ... I probably have this one. I think these were sold as $7 knives -- the astute could find a 20% off coupon which gets it close to the $5 repayment and then a store credit .... by the time that is all added up it looks like a recall that makes a profit?

    I remember the days when almost no one had a locking blade...

    No mystery, it's Occam's Razor, that's all...or maybe it's not.

    Buying a knife at Harbor Freight is like buying underwear from a junkyard.
