Look at this pink knife! (from William Sonoma)

If I were the kind of gal to carry around a knife, this would probably be it.

When I was 20, my friend Jill lived in the North End of Boston, and her apartment was my second home. At that time, there were a series of assaults on women happening in that part of the city and so we always made sure 1) we traveled in packs and 2) we had some kind of weapon on us at all times. The second part sounds monumentally stupid I am sure but when you are 20 years old, and the road to Manray is paved with perverts and dark alleys, carrying a box cutter in your clutch doesn't seen like such a bad idea.
Later, I ended up giving Jill my pepper spray because one night I accidentally sprayed myself in the face with it and that pretty much rid me of my desire to ever have that slim black cannister anywhere near me ever again.

Safety lock my ass.

But I digress. My point is that this pink knife would have been a lovely substitute (addition?) for the pink box cutter Jill used to have. If one is going to carry a concealed weapon (not that I advocater that) one must make sure it is a cute concealed weapon, oui?

I used to live in the north end, too! I was there when that creep was meandering the town, but I think the north end "police" took care of it. Pepper spay was my friend - I aslo always carried my keys between my fingers sticking out

Outside of a baby pink suede whip I randomly encountered the other day...

OMG...I thought I was the only person who carried box cutter around for "safety" in college when walking around in the dark. LOL. Thank God a cop never pulled me aside. Isn't that a concealed weapon?
I totally did that "keyring-as-brass-knuckles" thing in high school too.
Everything is cuter in pink...sigh. I own a pink "Miss Army" knife!
