Man this realy sucks.

If you got a list from stolen stuff and pictures i'd sure make a pawnshoptrip. Might be tickets from the shops may give police a chance to locate the thugs..

Thanks for the video-review wouter.! Great to see the inhand cuttingtasks so we get a good idea about it's handling and abilities. I had some difficulties with my caly 3 blade removing and polishing myself. Maybe attaching a ziptie to the backstring alligned with the back of the scales helps. So spr...

David, I wouldn't be against adding a few more emoticons, but it's not as easy as you think. They aren't there, they actually have to be built. Unfortunately that's just not something I have the time to do. Perhaps in the future. Brad (And Tony), It seems that might be a little of both. I can see t...

Well, let me put a positive spin on this....at least for me. I did not realize it was going to be limited production. I also didn't realize that it had nested liners. I always liked the original custom JENS ANSØ Rock Lobster, which I cannot find, for the life of me, on his site anymore. Due to the ...
