Re: Disabled Knife Self Defense

Also: How can a person who is in a wheelchair or motorized wheelchair like vehicle make sure some violent punks don't try to knock them over and sabotage or steal the chair?

What are some good tactics you recommend?

Re: Disabled Knife Self Defense

Can't speak for Mike but if I were in a chair I would absolutely have a good neck knife on me at all times. They're far easier to access from a sitting position than a folder and that translates into faster response time in SD. Good point. When you say good neck knife, would you consider something ...

Re: Apple Watch

If I may ask, are there smart electronic computerized watches with similiar features to the Apple Watch but without the same brand and that are less expensive for those interested, and which you recommend? I ask because when I looked up "Smart watches" I found alot of brands and features but which a...

"Why not more knife fans?" revisited.

This question has been raised before and I want to raise it again: Why is it that, except for those out there in the world and on this forum (and other edged tool forums), who are knife afficianados and fans/collectors, most of the human race, unless my reasoning is wrong, does not seem to be "into ...

My Pacific Salt with serrated-edge. I named it "Shark Man" because it bites like a tiger shark and great white shark combined.

That is a well-designed looking knife. It almost reminds me of some of Mel Pardue's designs.

Re: Time Travel Revisited: What kind of effects?

By the way, to add to the above, there is a field of archaeology called archaeoaccoustics and also a more "fringe" area of this field is the idea that certain types of stone, minerals, rocks and clay can somehow record the audio (not visual as far as I know)/sounds of past events, both natural and h...

Re: Time Travel Revisited: What kind of effects?

Doc, those are very fascinating points you bring up, which I, too, and others I have spoken with over the years have considered. "Great minds think alike" lol :) There is a controversial claim, I do not know how true it is or if it is just another urban legend as they say, but, allegedly there was a...

Re: Byrd Knives?

sal, if a person wanted to use a Byrd for basic whittling of wood as an art project, instead of normal wood-carving tools or knives, which one would you likely recommend?

Would a Byrd Rescue be allowed?

Since a Byrd Rescue has blunt tip and not a pointed tip, thus it cannot be used for stabbing, would this automatically make it safe in the legal sense, in places that have the "wrist flick" test for "gravity knife" laws or would it still be considered a knife since it has an edge?

Re: Time Travel Revisited: What kind of effects?

Time Travel is a classic trope of Sci-fi because it's always good fun- with lots of good and bad outcomes to get your teeth into Plus you get to re-use the costumes from the last Julius Caesar play Wardrobe had gathering dust ;) My thinking is that if anyone could cheat entropy and the laws of ther...

Re: Time Travel Revisited: What kind of effects?

If I could travel fwd in time, I'd buy a Wall Street Journal from 25, 50y or 100rs from now and come back and invest in those companies as much as I could. This brings up one of the issues I was hoping someone would mention in this: What would some of the economic and resource and technology effect...

Serrated Axes, Swords, Machetes: How come we don't see this?

Note: I am not referring to saws or sawbacks. There are machetes with saws on the back of them. But my question is this: Is it because of practical drawbacks that we do not see any practical swords, machetes, axes, or hatchets with actual serrations like we in the knife-user community understand ser...

Who would be up for this?

A Spyderco Stretch with LC200N steel blade, Full Flat Grind, in both plain and serrated edges, with Navy Blue tone FRN scales, and the new Fish-Scale Pattern Fiberglass Reinforced Nylon Scales, and the Back Lock as it has now.

Would you all be up for this?

Re: Of all your Spyderco knives, which gives the best, smoothest cut?

In small blades the K09 does it for me. I've sliced, diced, and filleted many gallons of fruit with mine....a scalpel. In larger blades, the Chokwe, or JD Smith both give smooooooth cuts, as does the ZDP Stretch when really sharp. Very cool. Do you notice that different fruits give different resist...
