Re: Official knife comparison pic thread!

For a budget priced, Endura sized knife that will provide good service and less concern about abusing or losing, consider the Byrd Caracara. Five years ago, I posted this image on this thread comparing them. http://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-XZLxkadItDU/VpfTFDGrKVI/AAAAAAAAl_A/PKD8jz0Nnl4/s640-Ic42/...

Re: The Tactical Bottle Opener: Spyderco ClipiTool Standard

Faithful readers, I must confess that I have gone on the wagon, temporarily. Going “on the water-wagon” meant to drink water, instead of alcohol. ...

Re: The Last Gun You Bought

Thanks. I've been wearing it around the house for a few days. To my surprise, it is thinner but almost the same size as my Springfield XDs .45 which weighs 21.5 ounces compared to 12.7 for the PF9. (An XDs 9mm is actually a bit heavier because of the thicker barrel.) That makes the XDs 75% heavier t...

Re: Family friendly jokes

I asked my dentist if we were going to use gas.
"Would you like gas?" she asked.

"No, I'm fine," I replied. "But you go ahead."

Thank you for that. This Bud's for you! In the relentless battle of the beers, brewers struggle for new ways and gimmicks to increase market share. The latest fad is nitro infused beer.

Re: Does anyone here ride motorcycles?!?

In 1969 I had a Yamaha 175 Enduro. In the 1980s a Yamaha XT500 and a Yamaha RD400F Daytona Special. Finished with a BMW F650GS, a Yamaha TW200 and a Moto Guzzi California. Probably racked up about 100,000 miles all together but my main ride was a 1998 Yamaha V-Max that I rode 67,000 miles in six yea...

Re: Coffee and Tea taste better out of certain mugs

This is my favorite coffee mug. We visited Snoqualmie and North Bend, Washington where Twin Peaks was filmed. Loved that TV series. Had "a dam fine cup of coffee" with a slice of cherry pie in the same cafe as Agent Cooper. Purchased the mug and a CD with David Lynch's haunting music in a gift shop ...

It sounds like you are describing the Spyderco ClipiTool with the screwdriver tipped bottle opener except the blade does not lock. The stubby blade is a dandy letter opener.
