I haven't heard of this type of cruise before, if it is in real then i would like to go for it. It will be very adventurous and even i want to know that how this experience will be, I have some friend

It keeps getting better. When you were offered "constructive criticism" and the advice which you now say you need, your response was to block the writerrs and post a poll as to what readers thought the two fools should do - stop and turn back or continue along. Presumably you took the poll results and decided to continue while belittling as "chicken littles" all the people who offered advice. And now the person who has been so arrogant and so free with his condemnation of posters who didn't offer a sprout recipe or tell the idiots they are models - now you want nice? Now you "could use help?" Call 'em up, tell 'em it's over - they've been found out. Tell 'em the contributions have dried up. Tell 'em the truth - you don't care anymore and neither does anyone else. Tell 'em they're boring. Tell them their ONLY hope is continued good luck but even God takes care of fools for a limited time - He's got lots of fools to look out for. Tell 'em the bood and the movie won't work. Tell ''em Oprah may call but the chances of that happening diminish every day. Tell 'em to beach the tub somewhere on the African coast and to enjoy the rest of their lives.

 

Oh - tell US if you've talked to a doctor about your diagnosis and prognosis about their health. You sound like the skipper of a ship before limes were discovered and before scurvy was recognized for what it is.

Thank you both for your voices of reason. Your are both examples to the lesser elements that frequent this site. Certainly as a friend and promoter of this voyage I would be heart broken were anything to happen to them: But guilty? Not for a second. For they followed their dreams and were willing to die trying. The foundations that America is built upon are the pursuit of dreams and exploration. Even if they were in it for nothing more than proving that man and women alone the high seas, as an alternative to land, they have already proven themselves. In an age or greed and consumerism, they have proven they can live off the grid. In and age of multi-million dollar sponsorship, the have proven they can sail without. Unlike this site's praise for Carrie, "who called tactics at the M-24 event for the rookie skipper of DivDat Racing, and had a crew who'd never sailed the boat, yet still managed to finish in the top half of the most competitive Nationals fleet ever," while risking her crew, you condemn Soanya for trying. Why? Is it that they dare to try?

Evenidently you have already wrote them off!

art house does not equal broadway, nor the UN, and telivision does not equal film.... hey but why not do us all a favor and take her out for a date? then you could really "prove her credentials!"

Whatever she's done, she did it ON HER OWN, and it's more than YOU'LL ever do! And, again, this isn't about bashing Suzanna...this is about lying, cheating, tax-evading, non-child-support-paying, NARC rat Reid. You're an ass, Oberon/Jesse/sff&s/.........

There is no loss of physical strength due to diet: they simply lost the fat that comes with giving up alcohol and rigorous sailing. Open question: what is the longest time anyone here has ever sailed? The 1000 Days diet works: I have seen them live on it during their years of preparations. Perhaps you are the first to have seen the boat: were you on it? Do you know it has been sailed thru the seven sees, from pole to pole? Do you know that due to his seamanship the crew survived falling off a 90 foot rogue wave? There are many praise worth aspects of this voyage, and the world is starting to agree.

 

All I am suggesting is that anger is good if the resulting criticism is effective. Most of the hatred and sour grapes spewed here is just that: hatred and sour grapes. If this site wishes to play the role of the greek chorus, excellent. Society requires social commentary. But two lives are at stake here. So why not add constructive advice to the slate of aspersions listed here and then let history be the judge of whether they were mad to go, or whether or not SA's members were simply to cruel to help them succeed? We could use your help.

 

I know that he hasn't sailed "from pole to pole". No one has. Obviously.

 

I doubt that he has sailed "thru the seven sees". I doubt he (or you) could even name them actually.

 

I also am willing to place a very, very large wager that the Schooner Ann has not "survived falling off a 90-foot rogue wave".

 

Please recall that the waves that sank well-prepared boats in the Fastnet Race were in the 30' range. The waves that pitch-poled well-prepared boats in the Sydney-Hobart were in the 50' to 80' range for the unluckiest boats that got the worst of it. "Falling off" a 90' wave would strip every spar off the boat, strip every bit of gear off the deck and no "seamanship" could prevent that. But how about a display of "good seamanship" by Ol' Reid once or twice. Good seamanship would start with a good storm avoidance strategy (to avoid that 90' rogue for example). Or in the case of the 1000 day lunacy, finding some time in the three years prior to departure to clean the bottom, find sails that fit and repair the rot that seems to be a constance source of problems. And rig a bow sprit that doesn't collapse in the middle of the night with a loud bang requiring more fatuous, unlikely explanations about mystery freighters.

 

 

Constructive criticism? OK Here's some constructive advice: Do not take that miserable, ill-prepared tub into the southern ocean.

 

 

I'm wasting my time here aren't I?

Shit! I can't go sailing for a day anymore??? I spend an hour trying to read through the posts, and I gave up. Is this lunacy now creating one page a day? EXCELLENT!

 

SOM: it seems like you had some major issues in your life, that somehow explain why you got involved with Reid. These other pronies of Reid, Jesse, Oberon, etc. must be truly fucked up and have some traumatic childhoods for which they should go into therapy. Instead they ended up in this ridiculous voyage into the void.

 

Is anyone checking the weather in the position where they claim to be? Is there really any rain?

i think perspective; if not the key to this story lies in the hearts of the women that surround and infiltrate this story.

som, i'm sorry i haven't had a chance to welcome you properly here, or tell you that i believe you are on the right track in purging yourself from this unwholesome past, but i am quite happy you are here. its been alot of data to absorb.

i'm trying to fix the players in this drama, and i'd like to hear from as many of the women in reid's past as possible as i believe they must have experienced him in his most 'candid' states where he would confide and reveal perhaps more than he intended.

you have mentioned in passing that you had a knack for befriending reid's women. this is, by the way, not so uncommon as men like to believe, for we women often are grateful to confide and swap tales with another jilted ex or walkaway girl to gain perspective upon one's own motives in a romance with the man all shared.

i'd like specifically to know about libby e...

is she a friend of yours?

she has written to sailing publications in defense of reid and soanya and of this voyage.

does she still feel this positive vibe?

and finally, is she here already, hidden with a user name?

if the latter is the case, i can well understand that she would like to voice her feelings yet remain anonymus.

i actually don't think you are underestimating the threat the reid followers attempt to frighten you with..but i do think that opening all windows and letting the fresh air will help you dispell their power. i wish you the best in your acting and art career.

Ok, I was just browsing the 1000days.net store and I noticed one of the most amateurish attempts at overlaying an image on a mug that I've ever seen.

There are a number of other clues, but the most obvious are the absolutely rectangular images that are supposedly on a curved surface -- abso-phuquing-lutely laughable. In fact, I wouldn't doubt that the Reid Worship Hour crew actually has any product to sell. Take the money and run.

 

What's more, it appears that every item in the store has had an image overlayed on it very poorly.

 

If anyone cares to refute this, post a picture here of a real mug, mouse pad or stein or any other product and we'll examine it.

DAY 160

 

Made a succesful rendez vous with the drug couriers. We can now sail back to NY. Damn, why are we going so slow in that direction, we keep ending up in the same position. It was much quicker going here. I wonder if the moon has something to do with it ...shit .... I am just checking our position and we are back at yesterday's location. If they don't get the dope in the next 100 days I am fucked!

I looked again at the 1000 days website and I changed my mind: I thought the boat would probably sink, but I now think that one of them (probably Reid) will get seriously ill so that they have to give up. In either scenario, a decent storm will definitely bring an end to the whole fiasco.

There is no theft or fraud here, although sailing history is ripe with it. No-one was shanghaied, coerced or abused. Yet in tradition with some of the most ancient recorded crossings, they are succeeding with their minimalist voyage, thrilling their 500,000 plus registered fans. If you truly care about protecting the valuable resource of goodwill that the public gives sailors, then you better begin at home with the members on this site. For I have seen no good will hear, no sportsmanship. Would you ever dream to criticize the Volvo team in the middle of a race?

Exactly.

 

I was going to get around to this point, later, but since Dave mentioned it, here goes.

 

What do they need money for now? They've done their preps (as such) and set off. They're not going to be re-supplied en route. What's the money for?

 

Oh, sure... the website says its needed for... let's see...

 

Contributions would go directly into Reid Stowe's bank account or PayPal account. This can be a flexible arrangement on a case by case basis: funding monthly, quarterly, or onetime on a yearly basis. If members choose to continue year 2 and year 3 all the better! Funds go to Satellite communications, Boat registration, Reid debt and general operations costs: webhosting, phone, weather reports, email services.

 

What? Donations go directly into Reid's account? Howzat work? Shouldn't there be a transparent foundation or association managing the cash? Like, you know, make cheques payable to "1000 Days at Sea" kinda thing, not "Reid Stowe", y'know?

 

Besides, website fees, bandwidth, communications stuff... shouldn't that have all been sewed up with sponsors or prepaid for 3 years? Like, before they left? Its not like you didn't know how long this was going to go on.

 

And what is the website soliciting anyway? $50 or $100 monthly donations?

 

If this organization(?) is truly as transparent as they would like us to believe, then there should be a budget posted on the website along with what donations have been received so far and showing the current shortfall or surplus. If it is there, then maybe the link to it is just missing, right?

 

I will not even comment on the items Boat Registration and Reid Debt; anyone else is welcome to, though.

 

Everything that I've seen, so far, including the Photoshopped product pictures, points to SCAM, SCAM, SCAM!

 

Prove me wrong.

I'm not sure what's wrong with the eyes on you guys. I know a hot chick when I see one, and I'm sorry, Soayna is not one of them.

OK, someone fess up...who contacted Wiki to delete Soyana's entry? There's a disclaimer (or whatever) saying that "It has been proposed that this article be deleted"....... in accordance with blah blah

The saddest thing about the great time we're having discussing all of this is that R&S don't have a clue of what has been found out about him because there's no way Jesse has breathed one word of this to him. Of course, there is still the issue of the planetarium's possible knowledge of this and also that weekly radio show that they do...now that one is live on Tuesdays, I think, and prople can call in and ask questions. Hummmmm.....

Even though I keep telling them to sink, I really don't mean it because this particular forum has to be the most entertaining on the internet!

:lol::lol::lol:

 

I think their next move will be to pretend to head into the Southern Ocean but will really head west and hang out on the coast of Guyana with her her relatives supporting them.

 

And what about those requests for payment directly into Reid's account? How legal is that?

Do you have a woman? Can you sail? Why not try both and then write back to us about your experiences, at stop spitting at others. It is not too late.

Yep. Got a wife and I sail. In fact, just this weekend I went sailing. Then I went home and fucked my wife. I also had parmesan cheese on my jumbo shrimp leone. Not sure what brand of parmesan cheese the club uses though. The salad bar was stocked with sprouts, but i'm more of a bacon bits kind of guy.

 

Hey, Oberon: Eat my fuck, asshat.

Allrighty Oberon... You asked for help.... WELL YOU GOT IT

 

We were sitting around the bar, chatting before a conference call, supposed to be discussing business but kept coming back to VOID Ho...

 

The long and the short of it is..... We have decided to launch A RESCUE MISSION

Without giving too many details that would give away who I am or who I work for...

 

We know of a sail boat in transit with a support boat in attendance... The sail boat can take care of itself and the support boat will have some lay off time after it arrives; SO we have decided to divert the support boat to resupply Reid!

 

Reid isn't moving very fast and we have calculated that the support boat will reach him in about 5~6 days...

 

The boat has 4 crew and will carry 200 pounds of soy bean sprouts, 2 fishing poles, 50 dehydrated meals for some real nutrition, an EMT with a full medical kit, and as much CHEESE as they can get their hands on. The boat has a full nav set, radar, video cameras, and coms... We hope that it will be fairly easy to locate them from calculating their drift rate and position reports.

 

Are they where they claim... We will find out in about 5 or 6 days!

Oberon and all the other Roid-hovians should check out http://www.heavencanwait.com.au/

 

This shows the efforts of someone who is trying to make a statement and raise funds but for something tangible and useful. Also giving to other sailors and making a contribution to something bigger (ie cancer) while still having a good time. Also shows many willing voluteers who are not cult zombis suffering from relevance defficiency syndrome.

 

These guys have made 1000 times the impact of Roid et al (on and off the water) in 1/1000th of the time.

 

Look and learn. And get back to us when Roid-ho busts his head out of his arse and starts thinking about somone else.

As much as I hate to do it, in the interest of accuracy there is a company, called cafepress.com, that allows anyone (yes, even you) to upload images and sell products on the internet. They don't actually produce the item until it's ordered, so the images shown are photoshopped images of what the product would actually look like.

 

I doubt anyone will be able to upload photos of the real thing, because I would imagine the only person who has bought anything is the guy he ratted out, who is now using his Reid and Soayna mouse pad as a dart board.

That means WE could put make Cafe Press products featuring "1,000 Days of Hell" and use the money to ....well....ah.....OK what the fuck WOULD we use it for :)

 

As much as I hate to do it, in the interest of accuracy there is a company, called cafepress.com, that allows anyone (yes, even you) to upload images and sell products on the internet. They don't actually produce the item until it's ordered, so the images shown are photoshopped images of what the product would actually look like.

 

I doubt anyone will be able to upload photos of the real thing, because I would imagine the only person who has bought anything is the guy he ratted out, who is now using his Reid and Soayna mouse pad as a dart board.

Alright, fair enough -- this should be a simple matter for one of the Reid-puppet-websters to clear up.

 

How about it?

Jesse - you're still blocking me at the blog site. If you're still looking for advice, read up on kwashiorkor.

 

This from the Harvard School of Public Health:

 

"Around the world, millions of people don't get enough protein. Protein malnutrition leads to the condition known as kwashiorkor. Lack of protein can cause growth failure, loss of muscle mass, decreased immunity, weakening of the heart and respiratory system, and death."

Ok, this picture is SCREAMING caption contest!

 

Anyone?

 

 

Now if the liferaft won't inflate, you will have to do it by mouth. Let me get my "valve" out for you to practice on. Sometimes there is a "liferaft sealant" that can come out of the "valve", so we can spread this plastic around to avoid messing up the deck.

But this "practice valve" is a little old. You may get some "dust" rather than "sealant".

OK, Reid has done something I did not think was possible: Create moldy pasta!

From their website:

 

"Four of the boxes sat in that damp spot for at least a year. Water soaked through three layers of plastic wrappings, the cardboard box, and the plastic that the food came in. I t was pasta that got a little moldy and spoiled."

The Rescue...

 

So things went quicker than expected with the trip to shore to pick up the bean sprouts... It seems that the guys on the boat popped into the harbor, ignored customs and immigration regulations, scoured the port and found the beens and 2 cheese wheels. Didn't check in with immigration or clear customs. They will probably get there a little sooner than expected. The other equipment that we intend to leave with reid was already on the boat and/or donated by the crew.

 

They do have 2 HD video camera kits with some decent sound equipment. I wish we had more people on the boat to handle the equipment when they meet up but we didn't want to leave the delivery short handed. The plan is to video the encounter and sell it to a news organization to offset some or all of the fuel cost.

 

A problem has occured to us though... What do we do if they want to be taken off the boat??? If Sonya(well either of them) wants to be taken off we should take her. But say we take her off the boat, do we leave reid alone on the boat? Sonya wants taken from the boat and then reid bails as well or he is to weak to be left alone. Do we take their garbage scow in tow? The support boat is equipped to do that for short distances but not hundreds of miles. If we take garbage scow in tow does it then become a salvage? Where do we drop these leeches off, Liberia? Anyone in the peanut gallery have any idea?

Of course! Like i said, simply deposit the Reid Stowe Rescue Funds into my bank account and I assure you all fund will go directly to alcoholic beverages.

 

So I think we should set some fund raising goals...

 

$100 buys enough beer to get Nauti to flash her tits

$500 buys enough beer to get Nauti drunk enough to to a fully nude photo shoot

$1000 buys enough beer and tranquilizers to get Nauti inebriated sufficiently to do a porno shoot with Reid

you guys are actually doing it? that's really great - not only add to the entertainment value, but the right thing too. I wish you the best of luck, both in the trip & selling the video footage - some tabloids will want this, 'early on-the-water crowhurst', or the start of grizzly man II

 

likely it's a little early though - I'd guess both want to stay at the moment, and likely won't take the stuff (still great footage of the refusal!). By day 200 or so, or after some weather or injury - different story.

 

but if your trip starts a trend of cruising & delivery boats stopping by anne, as a sort of marine roadside attraction, then an even better continuing story with a better chance of a comic ending.

 

Btw, a future visitor should bring them an EPIRB (maybe 2 - give second to the girl privately). Ed - why doesn't SA start a drive to buy this for them, inscribed 'From SA with Love' That'll annoy the onshore cultists.

 

again, best of luck - hope you find them & your trip becomes a classic

Anyone been taking note of how many guests seem to be viewing this thread at any given time?

 

My guess is the link on the 1000 Days wiki might be bringing some traffic here for some alternative views.

I will send Nauti $100 for a tit-flash myself, but $1000 likely isn't even within several orders of magnitude of what you would need to get ANYONE near Reid, let alone to get it on film :o

Oh.... but you are missing the genius of it! In the Roid-HOvian spirit....

 

One has to set goals, but they don't necessarily have to do anything with reality.

 

1) Raise 3 times the goal of $1000 to cover contingencies.

 

2) after the funds are raised take 9 years to get the project off the ground

 

3) reid will either be sunk or in prision when the project is "matured" so you are off the hook

 

4) if it does ever hit the fan and reid comes looking for; you take off for a sail around the world... There is no way he could ever catch up to you in that garbage scow of his!

If true would be great entertainment, for us anyway.

I don't know what it is but he has something going for him that I don't. If you read what SOM has to say apparently he has not trouble attracting numerous women of all age ranges. I have never been dating someone and had 2 mistresses on the side at the same time. I don't know how he keeps it straight... Even back in college I was hard pressed dating 3 women on the same day and he is over 50 now. :ph34r:

If you haven't already read their 1000 days post for Sept. 30 about the green pasta (yes, Sayonara, that green stuff is called spinach and it's probably the healthiest item you have on board...but, alas, it's ruined), please check out the blog comments for that day, and oh crap, do I wish I could get in there to comment! A John "Kooz" Kuczmarski comments "Reid looks hard, tough, weathered on the outside but probably very benign internally. Soyana, looks very soft and gentle on the outside, but psychologically or emotionally is like tough as nails -- diamond."

benign = stoned

soft and gentle = nuts psycopath

psychologically or emotionally is like tough as nails -- diamond = see 'soft and gentle' above

 

Let us not forget, all, that Sayonara started chasing Reid when she was 17, and he slept with her and every other young girl in her 20s who he could prior to departure.

I cannot imagine what STD's the guy has as he has been sleeping with little dock groupies around the world for about 30 years, correct? Gotta have herpes and warts, that's for sure, and maybe crabs (not blue), too! He certainly hasn't been going to any doctor all these years (no income = no insurance). Yuk, I'm grossing myself out!

 

Anyway, Robin and Suzanna, who do you think this "Kooz" character really is? Jesse/SFFF/Obiwan??? Gotta be one of his cult followers! <_<

If you truly care about protecting the valuable resource of goodwill that the public gives sailors, then you better begin at home with the members on this site. For I have seen no good will hear, no sportsmanship. Would you ever dream to criticize the Volvo team in the middle of a race?

 

There is no loss of physical strength due to diet: they simply lost the fat that comes with giving up alcohol and rigorous sailing. Open question: what is the longest time anyone here has ever sailed? The 1000 Days diet works: I have seen them live on it during their years of preparations.

 

But two lives are at stake here. So why not add constructive advice to the slate of aspersions listed here and then let history be the judge of whether they were mad to go, or whether or not SA's members were simply to cruel to help them succeed? We could use your help.

 

 

Dude -- you are seriously making my flesh crawl. . . . we "protect the valuable resource of goodwill" when it is actually MERITED by those truly deserving. . . say for example, the fund for Hans Horrovett's children . . . like you have any clue who Hans is (but google will save your pathetic ass so you can say you do). . . .

 

and since you choose to mention the VOR, you shart stain on an old man's jockey shorts, there was much valid criticism and discourse about the Volvo race while it was going on . . . criticism and discourse by some world-class sailors that taught the more novice of us a hell of a lot . . . . and you really are going to compare Reid and Sayonara to the Volvo racers?? Bring that shit on. . . . but let me hit up Costco for bulk supplies of popcorn (again, like you have any fucking clue what that's about -- and it sure as hell ain't to donate to your messianic cult leader, although parmesean is really good on popcorn).

 

And really? There's "no loss of physical strength due to diet?" Since we're sticking with the Volvo comparison, is that why the VOR sailors take up to 30 supplements a day, with various fats, oils etc, every day, even when ashore? Did you know that each Volvo racer takes in 5,000 calories each day and, depending on his role on the boat, burns from 5 to 7K calories a day? And parmesean and sprouts are NOT part of the menu.

 

And before you even begin to spout some blather about how I don't have my facts straight or I don't know what I'm talking about, this came straight from the Ericcson guys themselves when I interviewed them. Sorry, dude -- I take their word over yours.

 

You say two lives are at stake here -- that's kind of the entire point of this. Two lives are NEGLIGENTLY at stake -- if they were in any way prepared for this journey, we would be cheering them on -- heart and soul. You ask why we don't add constructive advice and say we could use your help?? Do the words IT IS TOO LATE mean anything?? The help YOU need can only come from licensed therapists, deprogramming, a lobotomy, and a hell of a lot of shock treatments. . . .

 

And what will I say if they actually do this?? I will say that these two really are proof that God protects fools and small children. . . .

 

You really, really, really need to go away.

Yeah - here's an idea. For the leaks, that is - take your electric drill and drill a hole next to each crack where it's seeping. That'll let the water go back out.

I am sure you did not realize this was a joke! You are busted: you know nothing! So go into therapy now and start crying for a few years.

In fairness to wise old Jesse, he didn't post the other one. The ancient mariner's main problem was trying to patch from inside below the water line. Water pressure, you see - he couldn't get the epoxy to stay in the crack against the pressure. Somebody suggested using a toilet plunger to put pressure on the inside and somebody else suggested sealing the hold really tight so he could then use his air compressor to raise the inside pressure to equal the water pressure. The poster even told him how much pressure he'd need for each foot below the water line. Well - Jesse posted both of those but it seemed they would be very difficult to make work and an easier fix was needed. Make the epoxy patch real thick and then nail a piece of plywood over it to the inside of the hull to keep pressure on it. He didn't bite on that one so that left the old fix that used to work so well in wooden rowboats - make it easy for the water to go back out.

 

It appears Jesse is getting tired. Poor guy - he's running out of posters and everybody is being mean. Even AmberD has apparently abandoned him. She runs an Italian restaurant in St Jo, Missouri and used to post recipes and congratulations almost every day. Jesse - if you're there, my tired friend, buck up a little. They won't last much longer with no more nourishment than they're getting. Say what you and they want - Soanya lost 15 pounds - that's about 15% of her body weight I'd guess. And him? He looks like he just left a concentration camp. They cannot live on what they're trying to live. If they can get some fish - fine. But even then, Reid makes "40 meals" out of one small dorado. They need to be packing in calories and protein and carbs - especially him if he's working as hard as he says. Ask a sports doctor. His heart will quit one day - it'll just stop. And Soanya will be left to figure it out until a ship gets there - if it gets there. They DO have EPIRB, don't they? And then all his "friends" who egged him on and encouraged him not to turn back and gave him cheese and beans and pasta will be able to gather round and toss a wreath into the Hudson River in his and her memory - unless she's rescued. Not pretty, Jesse - not pretty at all. But you and his other "friends" who put him on the "B-Ark" can take a lot of the credit. Idiots with magic mushrooms - all of you.

Who is Oberon? Seems like he is sticking up for Reid quite a bit. Could it be Reid himself???? The two definitions of Oberon are funny in themselves.

 

1. (in medieval folklore) the king of the fairies.

2. Astronomy. one of the five moons of Uranus.

Of todays post on the 1000 days website:

 

The photo shows the big mahi-mahi I just caught and how I make the cut along his backbone to fillet the meat off each side. The knife I am holding is a French Opinel. About ten years ago, they contributed about twenty knives to our project. That one is the last new one that I got out today especially to make cleaning this fish easier.

 

[what the fuck did you do with the other knives?]

 

They have a very fine blade that can be made very sharp. Bernard Moitessier, first man to sail around the world non-stop, had a big influence on me in many ways. The first time he sailed around Cape Horn, he was towing drogues in a big storm to slow him down. When he decided that these sea anchors were dangerous, he grabbed his trusty Opinel, which he never let anyone else touch, and cut his drogues away. I'll take good care of my last Opinel.

 

I took the three fish in the picture out of the mahi-mahi's belly along with a variety of smaller fish. I put one these smaller fish on a smaller hook and caught a trigger fish. They have a trigger or spike that comes out of the top of their heads that must protect them from the larger fish. They can't swim very fast. I wonder what fish eats them. They have a very tough skin and I broke the tip off of my new Opinel.
