I bought her a RS for our anniversary last year. That didn't go over so well. So I then went out and got her a watch. That went much better! My justification was that the "traditional" anniversary gift was steel. What better steel than Swamp steel?

Heck I told my wife I was going to get a RMD with G10 handles and she decided we should go to Alabama to see her family. I get a great new knife but I get the joy of spending a weekend with my in laws. Thats almost enough to make me not want a RMD. ALMOST!!

Let's face it fella's, they are born knowing all of our ploys. No way to get away with anything involving what they call "non-essentials".

Having taught survival, I did get far enough to have my wife agree we ought to have two blades of swamp caliber ....but I already have many more than that ...so another purchase??? That puts me in the same boat as you.

Indeed, they're funny. Buy them a useless new handbag (why so many) they will appreciate the gesture, usually the model or brand will be wrong... but buy them something useful like knife and all you get is a stare... confused
