There's a whole host of benefits allotted to those, who, like myself, possess these very specialized sets of skills. One of the benefits is, that afterward, you sleep really good at night and I mean really good. What? Well, it’s true, it’s hard to believe I know, but trust me it’s true. Sam, my uncle, sent me to this exotic land that used to smell of frankincense and myrrh. He sent us there, my brothers-in-arms and me, so that we could become proficient in the art of death. We we’re good at what we did, because now it only smells of gun powder, burnt oil, and death. That's a hellofa predicament you’ve found yourself in, isn't it? Well at least now you know I'm good with a gun and thanks to my Uncle Sam I am also very comfortable with a blade. This ten inch beauty here is a staple, its sharp enough to be use a machete. But this one, with the gut hook, is my all time favorite and I'll show you why here in a minute. Now, I can understand why you broke into my home, these are tough times, and a guys gotta eat I get that. I do. Maybe I would have let you live if you had simply demanded my money and jewels, but, then again, I was never known for being charitable.
