The Springsteel Assist, the Lightning Snap, or even something so tacky a Frosted Flake would think was cool, such as the Steel Warrior Thunder-Opening Tactical. But these are the same "professionals" who misspell the most simple of words so it isn't any wonder that they've no room for creativity in those felonious thought processes.
Mum has been the word lately, and I'm happy to see it and so are the real knifemakers too, I bet. Todd Boone stutters when trying to identify what an assisted-opening Frost product should be defined as, and lately as been saying "Call it whatever you want, it's fast." which we'll happily take as something of a surrender to common decency.
Oh yeah and before I forget; the past month or thereabouts Frost has been featuring what most of us remember as the Hobo Knife. Spoon, fork, and blade tuck all together into one handle, but "Hobo" had for years been legally taken by Case & Sons when describing such products. Boone and Frost, O'Dell, and even Trembling Travis the human potato-nose herself repeatedly offered that they couldn't call it the Hobo anymores, and struggled mightily to find something as simple as the Boxcar Tramp, The Scouts 3-in-1, The Camp Knife, or something else that would be instantly recognizable as another name for the venerable Hobo.*
They arrive unprepared, half the time haven't a clue as to what they're looking at, in the case of Trembling Travis and O'Dell argue amongst themselves every chance they get.
And Boone might as well not have the ear piece on because he shouts "WHAT...HUH?" each and every time the director tries communicating with him off the air... then complains he's lost his train of thought....then the director stops trying to speak with him at all...then Boone bitches that he's lost his place and begins screeching that his director doesn't talk to him. Is it any wonder that such misfits have to cheat to earn an indecent living?
Well glorioski kids...Sheila and old senile Tom O'Dell featured the 3-tier Hobo knife...and guess what?
O'Dell of course blurted out "HOBO" then realized that that single utterance may just have cost his company a pretty penny, but the caption on the product actually said "Boxcar", and Potato-Nosed Sheila offered that it'd be "A Boy Scout's dream!" Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks? Well, maybe not O'Dell but Sheila the pooch learned her a lesson from somewheres...
