What's sad about that is, in my house there are plenty of unopened surgical scalpel blades from all my nurse relatives, and I have a bunch of #11 razor blades I use for modeling my little 1/72 WWII vehicles and aircraft.

Long ago I had a wood shop teacher who was teaching us how to sharpen wood plane blades. He tested the sharpness of his blades by shaving some hair off his arm.

I don't think any of us young students ever advanced to the level of hairiness to put our sharpening skills to the test.

I used to keep the hair all shaved off my arms testing the sharpness of my knives, but now, my skin is so dry and rough, that if I tried it, I would cut myself.

My left arm never has hair on it for that exact reason. Sherlock Holmes would notice that.

Well guys, we're never too old to learn! Just had two squirrels in my feeder and went out after them. One took off for the woods and the other went up the tree. Very elusive and tough to bring down. Actually emptied the gun on him. He was still moving so I hit him in the head with the muzzle of my empty gun and "BROKE" my stock. First stock I have ever busted in my life after repairing many other peoples broken stocks. Unfortunately, it is not repairable so am needing one. Local gunshop has one so will be heading that way soon! As a gunsmith, I should know better but I have never seen a 10-22 stock break so easily. It's been on the gun since 1967 so the wood may have become brittle. (dried out) I rarely empty the gun on "one" squirrel but I will be carrying that extra magazine with me from now on!.....................Dick
