There's a time & place for everything.
I've walked into a bar with an axe, and have had everyone oohing & ahing over the hardware ... The bar was the Welcome Inn, in Fort Bragg California. The axe was my latest forging, a throwing axe. Several days later, I came in second at the Paul Bunyan Days competition.
And that's just the sharps ... I couldn't tell you how many times I've walked into a bar with my Precision Big Block ;-)
