In Norwegian multitools are non-gender. Knives and scissors are male though.

How do these things get decided anyway? It there like an official gender examination program? Somewhere there are full time employees trying hard to associate a gender with various stuff? How do you become a recognized expert at that? Or maybe the official title isn't expert but grand master, ninja, prophet or similar? Gender whisperer?

My mind is blown. I'll be useless the rest of the day.  :facepalm:

Hard to know without any live sightings of them? Maybe it is the profession of choice for big foot? Surely they have more than one foot though? Although one really big foot might explain the name. One big foot might lead to the infamous circle walking syndrome.

Edit: I think I just solved the circular patterns in corn fields mystery.

Finally, proof that aliens are here. I'll blame them for all the silly comittees then.

We might need to probe for that? With we I mean someone else.

In portuguese, everything is female! Huh... I mean, MTs and knives and scissors... Although pliers are male, just like hammers.

...one of each multitool.....
One of each? Tsk tsk, you know "one is none, two is one"   :twak:

 :D


Now we have to come up with a proper name for our ark...  :think:

So, according to your previous statement... The Ark of Threesomes?

 :think: :think:

I was more thinking in the lines of "GLMS Unworkable"  :P

How about a compromise? "Unworkable threesomes"? I've already did the footwork and the internet domain is still available. Amazingly a google search on that shows that the Canadian High Court, no less, have ruled that it is unworkable to use the law against immoral threesomes. Geez, I should really get back to working!  :D

I noticed warriors and wonders carries Spyderco again so theyve been getting knives again.  Can't find any mention of what changed.  Amazon canada sells Spyderco too and theyre in stock.  So doesnt look like we're missing out any more.

I shall try and explain gender specifics in all things mechanical.

As explained to me by an elderly tradesman many years ago.

I asked him why he referred to machines and cars as females, whereas the tools we used as males.

He stated that was because females were temperamental, unpredictable, usually played up at the worst possible time and could kill you.

tools, on the other hand, predictable, functional were used to do useful things, and, while they could hurt you, they rarely killed you.

He was never married.

I now know why.

tools is what defines us as humans

Some ZT and Kershaw are alledgedly comming in ( as per several people on Canadian Knives and Gear ) well . Spyderco stuff is deffo comming in Warriors is selling out on new stuff , and bringing in more .

Not sure WTAF is going on . Outfits like MEC and Victorinox have lots of OHO stuff ( visited the Swiss Army Store in Toronto ) .

Best Regards ,

I may not be up to date on this.  I see that the mountain equipment coop (mec.ca) carries the victorinox soldier lock blade and rangergrip.  Both have one hand opening lock blade knives but also have several other functions including separate screwdrivers and saws.  They also carry the Gerber Order drop point knife which certainly looks like a oho knife and the Buck Spitfire knife which they advertise as OHO.  There are at least two more that are single blades and at least designed to be opened one handed.  They used to carry the Sentinel - a oho single blade knife but do not have it in their catalogue now (at least on line).

I also see that Warriors and Wonders seems to be carrying a lot of one hand opening knives - not sure if this is old stock or they are now able to bring in new stock from across the border.

My question relates to the definition of a one hand opening knife - are the knives (OHO) with other separate implements not covered by this ban?  As you may know I had a sanrenmu/land oho knife seized by the "gentlemen" at the border about a year ago.  I don't really wish to donate further to their cause but would like to know the answer to this question.

Also are there changes to the application of their ruling because it certainly seems to me that the wholesalers in Canada have managed to get around the border "security" ruling.  One way would be to have the supplier tighten up the pivot screws - I wonder if this is the case?

Thank you.

Further to the above Warriors and Wonders has under New Products a number of oho knives - mentioned by Chris above.

Anyone who can clarify this - it would be appreciated.

hey John, here are the news I read yesterday about this "situation":  :salute:

W&W just got the first shipment from ZT in years. Also, for the first time in years (if ever?) knifecenter policy has been updated where they will now ship ZT knives to Canada.

ThePeacent - thanks for the information.  Can you let me know where you saw this?

I was by a local shop today and noted that they had quite a good selection of oho knives - including Spyderco and Benchmade (a lot of other makes also).  I had a discussion with the younger gentleman behind the counter.  He advised that they do not import anything - they get it from wholesalers.  Before Christmas (Dec. 2018) he said they were very low on stock but just before Christmas they were able to get a good supply in.  He seemed to think that bringing in small quantities and "non threatening" looking knives was the key to getting them by customs.  I did note a number of flippers and others that certainly looked like customs would stop them.

In short I am somewhat at a loss as to what is going on.  Could it be that commercial entries are now allowed but personal ones are not??  I just don't know.

I don't propose to "beat this to death" however I see a bit in our latest federal budget saying that there will be money to have the same civilian oversight group that deals with the RCMP, deal with the border people.

From CBC Internet:

"Tucked away in the Liberals' 2019 budget, tabled Tuesday, was an announcement that Ottawa will assign an independent review agency to the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA)."

At least now we will have an independent body to complain too :D
