You're at the airport baggage carousel late at night, waiting for your assorted baggage. Several times, a cardboard box passes by on the track. It's marked in large red block-printed letters: "TRIPLE ENTENDRE 619-2891". Finally a guy walks up next to you, wearing two shoulder bags, a funny straw hat, and sunglasses. He picks up the box. You can see it's nearly weightless. He holds the box, frowns at it for a moment, then suddenly punches his hand through the top, lets the box fall away. You can't quite make out what remains in his hand, but it's something metal. He flips it around once, superfluously, catches it, and it slides into an empty holster on his belt as he turns and walks away.


(Darned airport security. I remembered this time that my money clip is a folding knife, and my keychain with the Craftsman Folding Compact Multi-Tool was also safely packed into my checked bag, but I'd completely forgotten I was wearing the Leatherman pocket tool.)

No, that's just the entry fee for being the triple entendre.

I can recall back in high school when we were at a youth convention. I think it was probably registration or something, because there were just a bunch of high school kids milling around. Jokingly, someone from across the crowd calls out, "does anyone have a screwdriver?" Matthew reaches into his right knee pocket, grabs three, holds them up, and shouts back, "which kind?"

I'm not so big on airport security either.

I have the original 5500, but the others are pretty nice. If I were buying one today I might go for the 5560 S.S.T.

To anyone about to buy a money clip knife, it might be worth comparing the Gerber Ridge™ as well.
