This isn’t the most profound question we have ever asked, but Sam L. sent the above picture to me and I needed a way to work it in.
The gun-industry has gone all out on the pink thing. I admit I bought my daughter the pink Red Ryder, but that was her choice. There is some godawful knife stuff out there, but in general I haven’t seen too much of it. Which is a good thing.
Most of the pink knives I have seen are fairly low price-point knives for the non-enthusiast. The ESEE above is one of a few exceptions in it is a mid-priced, more technical knife. It still seems like pandering to me.
Kershaw makes many of their knives in all sorts of colors, so it is a bit more natural that pink would show up in their line-up. Or rainbow-colored for that matter.
Have you ever, or do you think you would buy a pink (or other gaudily-colored) knife?
