Up to you...the original is a more robust knife. The new one has a slimmer profile and a slightly longer blade...and I just like it better. But buy what you like. Personally the only thing I don't like is the partial serrations. I hate serations on a fixed knife.

Shruiken and boshruiken are really only effective with poison on them or of you are trying to get a person to stop paying attention to your actual attack. They make little holes in a person and don't have the weight to do significant damage. I have a bunch of boshruiken that I have made that I grind...

Yes, Sog knives are pretty damn good. You can't go wrong with AUS-6 steel and it has a full tang. The handles aren't bad either. I personally prefer a skeletonized handle and then I wrap it myself. But these make great tough effective knives. Buy with confidence.

Hmmm...allow me to clarify a few things that were stated earlier. This forum is largely a survival forum. So, you are quite correct on the popular feelings on martial weapons. I personally think machetes are not the greatest weapon. If you were to try to cut off heads with one...it would fail on you...

I'm with Ednemo on this. Cheap machetes are an everyday tool in many parts of the world, for a good reason. They are lighter than a sword, can be used for a huge variety of tasks, are cheaper, and would not be looked at oddly if attached to a rucksack. Listen to Ednemo, he is obviously a genius wit...

The wakizashi is a very good weapon. However...I would switch it out with something that you could use as a machete, for more versatility. I have a few waks and while I practivce with them, they do not have a space in my BOB. Instead I have a Junglee Short Sword, that also acts like a machete, and i...

I can't say I have ever hunted boar with a spear...but my friends have...and they used the spear and came down on the boar from a tree. They did have friends with rifles and pistols nearby though.

I have my Cold Steel Shovel and my Junglee Short Sword. Both are multipurpose and both ride in the truck of my car with my BOB. I wouldn't mind having a titanium crowbar...but I am not spending $78 for one!!

I will agree to the usefulness of the tool. I personally have been thinking about picking up a good quality air rifle with a scope to sit next to my back door to shoot at the possoms that try to eat my dog's food. But, unless it was a folder that could be made small and tight, I don't see it going i...

They sell them at one of the police stores I frequent. I will attempt to stop in and check on the price this weekend.

Hollow, Some people, especially on this forum, have money they are willing to spend on their weapons. They want the best available. Some people have tons of guns. And they are not inexpensive. For much less than the cost of a new gun...you could buy a great deal of this rather expensive ammo. Or, sp...

I can't stand lights on my guns. Even with the custom holsters for them, I've yet to see one that is easy and fast to draw and reholster.

I just sold one of my revolvers and never picked up a replacement. So I am down to 2. A SW 627 Performance Center 8 shot 5" 357 magnum. And a Remington 870 18" 7 shot with a Copstock Folder on the back.

Yeah, at gave out their full names to make a bigger post. :twisted:

.357 magnum is my caliber of choice. Versatile, you can find it at any little hick store since hunters use it. You can use 38Special +P in it for cheap and there is a good balance of ammo out for it...

The price really isnt that bad. A Mossberg Mariner w/ those accessories...that's about right. I would say do it yourself, but ghost ring sites need to be installed by an armorer. That being said, the price on that is actually quite good.
