But this week, McNeely, 32, was scratching his back as usual when his fingernail caught on something. His girlfriend took a look."Knife taken from Billy McNeely's back after three years" Read the rest
"I told Billy: 'There's a knife sticking out of your back.' I was scared. I was ready to pull it out with tweezers," Stephanie Sayine told CBC News.
McNeely is considering whether to file a lawsuit against the local health department.
This gorgeous knife is elaborately engraved with scenes replicating Dore's illustrations to Dante's Inferno; I'm not clear on whether this is a knife or a razor (which is technically a knife, I know) -- the forum is called "Straight Razor Forum," the poster calls it a "knife," and the piece does not resemble straight razors or pocket knives of my experience. I'm sure that when I check this post tomorrow morning (it's queued up to go live after I go to bed in London) the comments will have settled the question in excruciating detail.
The theme was Dante's Inferno and the images are based on Dore's illustrations for the book. The toughest part was that I had to alter the images to make them fit the format of the windows. I had to make the altered images still recognizable as the classic Dore illustrations.
The "frames" are sculpted and the images are bulino engraved. The scenes on the hidden panels were also bulino engraved. The knife was made by Joe Kious of Kerrville, TX.
The CardSharp 2 from Iain Sinclair is a folding utility knife that turns into a credit-card object when it's not in use, suitable for storing in your wallet. It's a clever little design, unlike a lot of credit-card tools that leave you with a rectangle of plastic in one hand and a tool in the other, the "card" folds around to become the handle.
