From Marietta, Ohio, we chat with Courtney (@bladeantly_obvious) who’s studying to be a Medical Cannabis Technician. Growing up on a tobacco farm, she always found a use for a sharp blade, whether it’s the SAK from her father or the Case fixed blade from her Pawpaw. Read on to learn all about Courtney’s sleek carry and her wonderfully diverse interests and hobbies.
I was born and raised in West Virginia. I moved to Marietta, Ohio about 3 years ago. I have worked in an elementary school as a librarian and one-on-one with special needs students. I’m also currently a college student studying to be a Medical Cannabis Technician.
My dad gave me my first knife when I was around 8 years old. It was a Swiss Army knife. My Pawpaw also gave me a Case fixed blade around the same time. I grew up on a tobacco farm and we were constantly cutting twine. A knife was always a useful tool to have.
I also used the same knives while ginseng hunting, fishing, and trapping small game. Carrying these knives became a part of my life and it felt wrong not to have one on me at all times. To me carrying a knife is more than just convenience but it’s memories of my childhood.
In my free time, I enjoy anything outdoors. Fishing, shooting guns, riding ATV’s, hiking, walking my dogs, and camping are some of my favorite outdoor activities. My fiancé and I also enjoy antique shopping and working together on our home projects.
Favorite EDC Tool:
My favorite knife to carry would be the custom Farmer X. Not only is it ready for any task that comes its way but it’s also reminiscent of the first carry I had as a child.
What's On Your Gear Radar:
A Chris Reeve Small Tanto Sabenza is next on my list right now!
