    My inner child is sooo with Eddie on this one Hey, I watched MacGyver, I have a swiss army knife. Never know when you’re going to need a knife. Or any other item tucked into that tiny little knife.

    Go ahead and give him the knife.
    And teach him how to play mumbly peg. What’s the worst thing that could happen?

    …having too root the peg?

    I had a Official Boy Scout knife in my pocket and a 4 inch bear killer on my hip. I once needed them to carve a peg for the roll by the latrine. Ahh, the smell of nature.
    I never told anyone about dropping my flashlight down the second wooden hole of that latrine that dark night with the wolves howling. I said I never told it and I’m not stupid enough to tell it how. They made me sleep outside the tent.

    How old is Eddie? Dad taught me how to shoot a .357 when I was five.

    I think Eddie is 6 years old.

    Eddie, is, as Number Three knows, is six. Or so. Those into Cub Scouting know that makes him a ‘Tiger’ cub. Too young to be doing much with knives yet, by BSA rules. I guess Larry will have to teach him to use a Bowie knife at home.

    @Greg Cravens

    That’s what I thought. Same age as Calvin. I never thought I’d say this but…I think I’d much rather trust EDDIE with the bowie knife. LOL

    I wish I had a bowie knife…
    I don’t know what I’d do with it. But if Eddie gets one then that’s not fair and I’m pitching a fit until someone gets me one.
    (I’m too cheap to buy my own)

    My grandpa used to throw knives a lot. Dad tells me when he was younger that grandpa would throw a knife about twenty feet into a tree and the knife would stick in so far that my dad could stand on the handle and it would support him.
    One day when I was about Eddie’s age Grandpa gave me a knife throwing lesson in his backyard and let me keep one of his knives to take home for practice (grandpa’s are awesome).
    Well shortly after I got it home it disappeared. Some four or five years later (after I was much taller) I found it hidden in the tall windowsill of my bedroom. Turns out my folks thought that was the best place for it to be as long as I was too small to see up there.

    I also like Eddie’s reaction when he’s asked for an explanation. He has no clue why he wants a bowie knife. He just wants one because they’re cool. But he knows there’s no way he’s getting a weapon unless he can assure ol’ dad that he intends to use it for reasonable and constructive purposes.

    You should market that.
