Re: 9mm vs 40 S&W vs 45 ACP

Long ago when we raised our own meat, we would butcher two pigs every year. I always shot them half way between the eye and the ear hole with a .22 Magnum. It only took one.

Re: Vote: SMOCK v.s. IKUCHI

I have often been fooled by how a knife looks rather than how it works for me: balance, grips, overall ergonomics, cutting and slicing performance, operation (opening, closing, unlocking, security when carried). Clips are replaceable or removable so they don’t make much difference to me. I was meh… ...

I don’t really have a system but usually my Great Eastern Cutlery Pemberton with a Spyderco. The Chaparral FRN is pictured here, but lately it’s been my Ikuchi.

Re: Disabled Knife Self Defense

Wow! Bonjoc is something to behold. In some ways, a chair may provide a psychological and perhaps positional advantage. Perhaps the end of this year, or early next, we will be in Northern California, a ways from Stockton. But I will see if there are any basic clinics that I could begin with in Color...

Disabled Knife Self Defense

Mike Jancich, thank you for your serious and well stated approach to knife SD. From what I have read here and other places, training that puts various knife SD philosophies is focused on individuals that have all of their basic motor skills intact. But, I and some of the people I know are either eld...

Re: Ikuchi - fantastic knife!

So the customer/user has to modify a new knife to prevent cutting their hand? Doesn't sound very fantastic to me. No, the customer implies everyone. We don’t know the ratio of issues to non-issues so that implication is incorrect. It’s like explaining that most does not mean all . It is implicit to...

Re: Who else is getting an Ikuchi as soon as they are released?

I have been using mine for about everything. I don’t worry about the point when it is closed since it fits nicely beneath the top of the liners but when open that point can do some damage. Thin, sharp and needle-like. Which is one of its attributes. I’ve also worked out how to more easily close it b...

Re: Ikuchi - The New Kiwi?

Yikes, seems to be an issue with these types of knives. The Ikuchi I handled at BLADE last year did not exhibit any of those problems for me. Granted I only handled it for a brief time at the Spyderco booth. I mostly checked to see if I could feel the edge through the open back and I couldn't, even...
