The window was covered by a security grill - the knife was jammed between the wall and the grill, and I think maybe the window was inset, and the grill stood out from the window a bit. I can see how there'd be a gap there, if I'm imagining it right, I just can't describe it better at this late hour.
Now what I cannot fathom is, why wrap it in tape and then an orderly layer of string, just to jam it in that gap (in a supposed fit of sudden, suicidal depression which involved wearing a sheet over a sunhat, if you get my drift..)? Why not a heap of tape alone? Why is the string so neat? It's just weird.
Respectfully snipped by me...
Ausgirl - I think the same -
I got the impression that the tape was at the end of the handle, wrapped so it would fill the gap and make the wedge tighter.
But even using string and tape doesn't guarantee a really tight wedge - both those materials compress easily under load.
I dont know - just seems to easy a way to fail as an ideal way to jam a knife in solid.
