I would rather have a knife in my Christmas stocking on first thought.  There is no problem with what you hang in a Christmas tree but ........... doesn't work for me.

I suppose people hang all kinds of offbeat things on their Christmas trees......me included. :P    In my case it happens to be shooting medals that I've won in competitions over the years.   I never knew what to do with them after I won them. :shrug:    They are quite attractive silver and gold medals suspended from colorful, pin-backed, striped or solid color grosgrained ribbons, but what do you do with them?  I'm not vain enough to wear them to shoots and brag on past accomplishments and they look kind of silly pinned to the bibs of my everyday overalls. :lol:

One year, Heather got the idea of hanging a few of them on the Christmas tree when she was decorating it with some of our most treasured old ornaments.  I thought that was a tremendous idea because they are not only 'glittery' and decorative, but they bring back memories of when I used to almost always place in the top echelon of the competitors at regional competitions.  That's all in the past now.....my eyes, joints and hearing are all shot, so seeing those medals on the tree every year brings back memories of my better days. :thumbsup:

Kelly let me do a fishing lure tree one year.  But I think she might not go for knives.  lol

Nice work. I really like the spark stick idea.
I think this idea might work well with SAK's and Peanuts, and Old Timer and Schrade pen knives.
I'll never know though. My son and I divide our labour when it comes to the tree: I drive, he picks, cuts and hauls the tree. I secure it to the roof racks. He and I both put up the tree and I do the lights. At that point, he does all the decorations because he has some artistic gifts, and as he points out, "Dad, your colourblind."
