Re: SOG knives. Good, bad, worth the $$?

Kershaw Gerber Smith and Wesson SOG Benchmade Blackhawk HK Those are the top companies in terms of knives. I forgot all about posting here, came back to see what I wrote, and LOL'd again at this... again! I sincerely hope you are joking calling these the "top companies", because 1: S&W doesn't make...

I like that Izula folder, clean looking but also fairly robust.

Re: SOG knives. Good, bad, worth the $$?

Maybe he did, but if he didn't then its a bit harsh to call him out on it like that man. "They are quite expensive for being made in china. I'd spend my money on an American made for the same price." To me it looked like hes saying that Chinese knives are usually made at a cheaper price point, which...

Re: SOG knives. Good, bad, worth the $$?

Generally their older style fixed blades are good, most people avoid the folders. Often overpriced flashy crap, with mediocre steels. And avoid Gerber, S&W. Generally the top middle is Spyderco, Kershaw, Benchmade and Cold steel (even though people love to hate 'em) If you want the best in productio...

Re: NAFFI Bar -Open

Picked up a lovely Thomas Turner Penknife from the furnace end boot fair in the west mids the other day. Cost £2, lovely little thing and had a good chat to the seller about knives, British army issue kit and Section 139 of the CJA1988 :D He was a collector of trinkets, old badges, lapel pins, Hohne...

Re: Thoughts on non-gun z-day weapons

Tomahawks are a bit weak, i own a CS trail hawk one and for humans it would be ok but it lacks the weight needed for a solid head breakage. Something like a large framing hammer, small sledgehammer or a nice wrecking bar would do the best. Wouldn't use a machete either, dont think it would deliver a...

Re: What would you buy?

A common problem with some of my friends who own shops and internet sites as well is that they have to advertise the online prices cheaper, because its a lot more competetive. If you want to keep prices similar then i suggest using the online one as a reference/reserving for the shop. I prefer to lo...

Got a bit bored the other day and after remembering a Mod somebody did on EDCForums regarding a Gerber Clutch and their house keys i too decided to have a try. I used a Magnusson Star/Torx key tool holder which i took the Star keys off of, i had to drill out my house key holes so they would fit the ...

Re: Spyderco Delica serrated to plain edge mod?

Krylons crap anyway. Compared Belton, MTN, Plastikote and Wilkos own brand (lulz) recently on my own wall at home. Belton was the smoothest out the can but it was with a NY fat cap, the others were all with Montanas thin to medium cap (the white one). Plastikote is thick and blotchy and doesn't spra...
