What me and Angelina Jolie's charactor in SALT have in common

In the movie Salt there is a scene where they look at her skills listed on a computer screen and I just thought "edged weapons" was really funny. It made me think about all the incredibly sharp objects and ways I have to cut stuff up within arms reach.

Just made me think I could put that on my resume too.

OK, now here are some ideas for some fun crafts that I am quite sure involve sharp objects:
