I had occasion to use mine, attached to a pole, as a make-shift spear after my Beechcraft King Air C90GTx suffered a catastrophic engine failure over Welling Channel, just off the coast of Cornwallis Island. Fortunately I was able to preform an emergency water landing and grab a few necessities before she sank in twenty-fathoms of ice-cold water. After swimming six miles to shore, I found myself on a rocky beach strewn with driftwood. I used my Fumio Inagaki AUS-8 Slip-Joint Neck Knife to quickly construct a comfortable survival shelter and then build a small fire to ward of the howling pack of wolves I could plainly hear in the distance. The next morning I constructed the above referenced spear to harpoon and unsuspecting Arctic Walrus which I then skinned and butchered--again with my trusty Fumio Inagaki AUS-8 Slip-Joint Neck Knife. After a leisurely breakfast of blubber and kidneys, I began the arduous twelve-day walk back to civilization--or what passes for it on that god-forsaken, snow covered rock they call Cornwallis! By the time I reached the remote Government weather station at Resolute bay, I'd used my Fumio Inagaki AUS-8 Slip-Joint Neck Knife to kill and skin three rather large polar bears and seven reindeer. While I admit there were moments along that torturous trek where I wished for a longer knife (and a decent single-malt), my Fumio Inagaki AUS-8 Slip-Joint Neck Knife never let me down. I guess I wouldn't be stretching the truth too far to say...I owe my life to that knife!
Clever Ray - Very Clever. 😉 And quite creative.
I'm sure I have no idea what you mean!
