    Missed opportunity to discuss the superlative, butchest knife.

    Also, butt-chest? That must be one long-ass knife.

      I guess the butchest knife would be one wielded or made by a goat, since that’s the origin of the “butch” in “butcher”.

    This butch example actually begs the question.

      Butchers were either very good with sharp edges or strong enough to overcome any resistance and had a lot more protein in their food then the general population. Messing with them was a bad idea. /bad_history

    see, owning a knife and using it at the shop makes a shop owner butch, and thereby makes it a butcher knife.

    so if it’s a paint shop and the owner paints with the knife, it’s a butcher at a butcher shop with a butcher knife.

    It’s actually named after Butcher Pete, who was known for chopping all the women’s meat

      Makes sense. It is a long, sharp knife. You could just start choppin’, and don’t know when to stop.
