my 2 cents

pLEASE -- no liners - its supposed to be about a knife that is easy to maintain in the field...not the office. I'd love to see this design offered in H1 ---I know that may sound crazy to some but I would love the no rust, no babying quality of the steel. I'm more than tired of the "ring of rust in t...

Entymology Lesson

:) ticks are in the spider family - they're all arachnids - eight legged insects. So yeah, it looks like a tick because it is a tick. The part of the tick that's sharp is its mouth, and there in the place where the tick's mouth ought to be is the "V" groove of (I think) the Triangle Sharpmaker.........

Light duty - Co-pilot or Cricket

Almost everything else - Lum Chinese (I probably will be buried with one of these on me)
