Re: Dog tag decision?

4th gen looks very cool, but I think it's a shame to lose the chisel grind. I've got a Squarehead and love the grind on that.

Re: Para 2 as EDDC

Yeah I agree. Even a baton is a vastly better weapon for self defence than a knife, because it actually hurts and you can maintain distance better. I'm Australian, so all the better self defence options (guns, tasers, capsicum spray and batons) are considered prohibited weapons where I live. Even th...

Re: Para 2 as EDDC

I'd like to come along and watch sometime is all. :) I certainly intend to get into no more knife fights in my life, I've had enough of that ****. Fighting with knives is always a lose-lose situation, even if you've got a massive skill & experience advantage over your opponent. Which is why I don't...

Re: Para 2 as EDDC

I think people incorrectly focus on blade length for self defense. I believe that the only real advantage a longer blade offers is more reach and 1/2 to 1 inch more reach is not a big difference in a face to face situation. Many meat cutting tests show that a knife will often cut twice as deep as t...

Re: Para 2 as EDDC

you can kill someone by using a knife, but you can't stop someone by using a knife. Sorry, this does not compute. And fencing has nothing to do with using a knife for SD. If you are armed with a knife it is much easier to inflict lethal injuries on someone than it is to stop them from attacking you...

Re: Para 2 as EDDC

If you're after a knife to defend yourself with, I'm not sure why you would choose the Paramilitary 2. I've used a knife to defend myself, and also used to be a competitive fencer. If you want a knife to use for violent purposes, I don't recommend that you do this, but if you insist then you should ...

Re: SpyderCard 2 Concept Idea

I thought the idea of the Spydercard was to actually fit into a wallet as a credit card would. Or, it would be really cool if that were possible. Wait, maybe I'm visualising this wrong. I thought it had a money clip on the other side, which would prevent it being that thin. If it's going into a wal...

Re: Sal - Is the Military 2 still happening?

I don't understand. Are your knives opening *prior* to hitting the ground? If I drop a knife and it opens, it only opens on impact - so it can't damage the edge or the tip on the initial drop, only on the bounce, and the bounce is like an inch or two maximum. I guess a knife could bounce further tha...

Aha, I see what you mean. Yeah, I guess it could be a problem. I don't really see this as a knife you're going to chuck in your pocket and sit on though, that's more a PM2 job.

Re: SpyderCard 2 Concept Idea

I'm not sure if linerless G10/CF would be rigid enough as thin as it would need to be Linerless CF is more rigid than just about anything. The story of CF: 1. People invent it, it's extremely rigid and light, but expensive. 2. People use it in high-performance applications because it's extremely ri...

Re: Sal - Is the Military 2 still happening?

Eh, I don't see it as a huge problem. If I drop the knife on the ground, I'm not going to pick it up blind - I'm going to look down first, right? So I can't accidentally cut myself in that situation.

Re: Sal - Is the Military 2 still happening?

Wouldn't you agree that any knife you can wrist flick open can open on impact. I dropped my Native 5 and had it partiallly open once; 90 deg. I would say that any folding knife can open on impact. I've got a ZT0452CF, and that knife has a very strong detent. It exclusively opens by flipper (no hole...

By the way. Is your name SURFIN GRINGO, or SURFING RINGO? I'm not sure whether you're emphasising your identification as a white guy, or your identification as a Beatle.

Re: more high-chromium steels please

Why do you want high-chromium?

Do you like 20CV/204p/M390?

Do you like corrosion-proof nitrogen steels like H1 and LC200N?
