As I think I told you, I was in the Armed Guard, a division of the Navy, during War 2. We served as the gun crew aboard Liberty Ships, carrying supplies to Europe. I have only one memento from that war.
On one of our trips to Italy, I found an interesting knife. Google has identified it as a Hitler Youth Knife (or dagger). The total length is only nine and a half inches, and the blade is about five inches long. It takes an incredibly sharp edge!
We eat a lot of fruit, and my wife says it’s great for cutting tough things like pineapple, etc. I keep it sharp by touching up the edge on a stone every few days. I’ll tell you more about that in my next post.
