When selecting a knife, my specification is really quite simple. I want a knife that is not to big. It needs to be slim enough to get into the pelvic tunnel of a Deer and just long enough for bleeding. It must be easy to sharpen and hold a good edge. It needs to be dishwasher proof and have a non slip handle.
Until today that was it. My mum has bought me a subscription to sporting shooter and it came with a free Buck knife. The box has an advisory on it.
The sticker reads 'This product contains a chemical or substance known to the state of California to cause Cancer, Birth defects or other reproductive harm'
So my new specification. Not too big, Slim, long enough for bleeding, dishwasher safe and finally, not give me Cancer or cause my nuts to shrivel up and die.
Am I being too fussy!
