Well, my daughter couldn’t sleep and she came out when Cruel Wife and I were watching The Brothers Bloom. I hit pause on the movie and she sat on my lap with a blanket for half an hour or so. Best Father’s Day present a guy could get.
The family, knowing my love of fountain pens, got me a Schrade Tactical Fountain Pen. It is a kubotan that can write purty stuff. (Let’s see a machete do that, hmmm?)
It is heavy – really heavy. 1.6 oz may not sound like a lot but it is noticeable – compare that to 0.2 oz for a normal pencil. It is heavy enough that posting it may take some getting used to (it’s my normal habit) but I see even odds of not being able to write without thinking with the extra mass there.
You could incapacitate a rabid badger with that thing. The pointy-tip end opposite the nib is a chunk of solid aluminum and it will dent the hell out of what it hits. I’m thinking that this is not going to be a carry-on pen when I go on travel for work. The TSA is obviously so unable to discriminate between real risks and legitimate travelers that I don’t want to chance losing it.
Love that copper color.
