A .22 is an excellent choice for learning and for the range. And there are tons of very good ideas and very good choices floating around in this thread. Everyone likes what works for them - but thats just it, you need to handle a few, shoot a few, and decide what you like. However, if you need somet...

Honestly for me they are for a cool factor... They mostly do not leave the house and if they do, its for something like a quick run to the store. As far as the advantages, I think fast deployment and for sure an intimidation factor (If you need to use in that type of situation :eek: ) This right he...

I bought a Manix 2 not too long ago and I still haven't used it. I do carry a Benchmade, ParaMilitary and Strider SnG a lot. I find myself never having the desire to carry the Manix2. It is a beatiful knife. I really really like the knife but I have been discovering other knives that really intrigu...

The Buck/Strider is a great "starter knife." But in my opinion, you already have great starter knives -hell, great knives in general- in the form of Spyderco's. Unless you just want to branch out and try something different, the Buck/Strider won't do anything your Spyderco's can't. But, it is a grea...

Best Rear-Pocket Knife?

Hey Everyone, Here's a question for you all...... Who here edc's a Spyderco in their rear pocket, and which Spyderco is it? I'm in one of those moods again where I feel like it's time to change things up, so I need a new blade to carry in my weak-side rear-pocket. Strong-side front-pocket always hol...

Side by side, plus spine by spine would be awesome.

If you have time you could also do one of the Barong in hand, please.

Request: Barong & Manix

Hi Guys and Gals, I hate to bother you all for this, but is there anyone here who has both the Barong and a Manix? I'm really thinking about getting a Barong, but I'd like to see how it compares to my Manix..... If someone could take a few side-by-side pics of these two, as well as spine-by-spine to...

Wow, I can't believe no one has commented on this yet, especially with all the Superhawk fans around here. Well, I'm not going to go into the whole self-defense thing, because I really don't carry for that reason. And maybe that is why there haven't been any commets yet... sometimes people start to ...
