Re: Knife Rights Ohio Knife Law Preemption Bill Introduced

Kind of like not going after Antifa and BLM for riots and murder yet going after anyone that attempts to defend themselves from them. Riots sponsored by the DNC are patriotic but riots not controlled by and benefiting them are the worst attacks on our country ever. Sort of like that? :) You nailed ...

Re: K390 Police 4 LW SE

It is nice to see those mellow serrations. :spyder: This knife could represent the perfect storm of performance attributes… A high wear, tough steel, which should support SE well, shallow SE, long edge, FFG, light weight package, production model, in a nice colour. :) I am not a big fan of SE, but ...

Re: Knife Rights Ohio Knife Law Preemption Bill Introduced

All that the arrests amount to is anarcho-tyranny. Anarcho-tyranny is a concept, where the state is argued to be more interested in controlling citizens so that they do not oppose the managerial class (tyranny) rather than controlling real criminals (causing anarchy). Laws are argued to be enforced ...

Re: Reveal 8 ETA?

I'm intrigued to learn more about Sal's phrase "The Edge is a Ghost" and the meaning behind it. Also, after looking over the mugs a bit more, I wanted to decipher the symbols shown below the phrase. The seemingly random symbols make much more sense now. They're ghost edges . ;) First line is the ed...

Looks like Reddit hates the idea behind the "thin blue line".
Yes, of course!

Reddit took a hard left during the Trump Administration. I'm not sure why, I was rarely ever on Reddit, but that is how we ended up with TheDonald.win, which is now at Patriots.win.

Larrin and BBB are informing and teaching everyone something about knife steels. From metallurgists, to steel manufacturers, knife makers, and end buyers. Dr Larrin Thomas has done an excellent job of bringing his corner of the world to the layman. I am able to understand most of what he writes on t...

My bad. I thought the lines under The Edge Is A Ghost was supposed to be the image projected by a goniometer.

Re: Knife Rights Ohio Knife Law Preemption Bill Introduced

That’s absolutely ridiculous.... you get charged for defending your own life???? That just doesn’t make sense??? I'm hoping to get out of Illinois to a more conservative state. I've had many years of martial arts training and it is useless in Illinois because one may not defend oneself, especially ...

Re: Covid-19 vaccination starting (UK)

Everyone in my immediate family except for children(so far) has had the Moderna or Pfizer vaccines. My mother and I both had the Pfizer vaccines. We received our 2nd vaccine shots early last week.

Nobody should go through that. I hope that he receives 10 years for it. Since he was already a known sex offender, IMO, 10 years wouldn’t be long enough. He’s just going to do it again. And again. And he’ll keep on doing it as long as he’s physically able to get around. Jim I completely agree. I wa...

Re: Are big pocket knives back in style???

Hi Guy, I believe that is a "trend" towards larger knives recently. I know I've designed a few. We see where it goes? sal We will be watching what you come up with @Sal! Exciting to hear this.

Re: Are big pocket knives back in style???

I've always carried a 3.5 to 4 inch blade here in Illinois, except when I'm in Chicago then I carry 2 inches or less. May one day move to a state with a larger carry knife and I'll gladly move up to 5.5. If I lived in TX, I'd have a Kukri in the car. Big blades have always been around and popular. I...
