The Rolls is really a straight razor on a handle. The box has a sharpening stone in one side and a leather strop on the other. The wire handle, affixed in tracks in the box, is used to draw the blade back and forth across the sharpening and stropping surfaces. The tracks are designed with little gea...

I just wanted to thank everyone for all the suggestions and helpful information. Just as an update, as of yesterday, I am the proud owner of a brand new Springfield Armory XD(m) 4.5" 9mm. This was one of 8 or so 9mm's that I thoroughly researched and got to shoot over the past couple weeks. It fits...

I've been shaving with a straight for about a month--ever since I got my straight back from a fellow forumite (thanks Butch!!!). I still clean up a few awkward spots with a disposable, especially on the off-hand side.

I too have a Rolls Razor--haven't used it yet.

Buddy, I hate to break it to you, but physics doesn't care if you believe it or not. The 5.56 does not have the momentum to carry itself through barriers like what you're making it out to be. Thanks for making my point for me. According to the info. you provided, 55 gr. JHP .223 penetrates about as...

Not relevant given the weight of the projectile. Consider that 9mm ball penetrates a sandbag deeper than 55 or 62 grain 5.56 ball. Come on!! My neighbors don't have sand bags, what they have is vinyl siding, compressed saw-dust and sheet rock. .223 doesn't penetrate that better than 9mm ball? I jus...

What I do to close it one-handed, push on the tab until the lock connection is broken, then push spine of blade on outside of thigh while getting fingers out of the way. Then, I use the fingers just removed to close the blade all the way. I'm having trouble understanding what is going on with your l...

After my extensive research and rationalizations I ended up with a gun I hadn't even considered, a .380 Sig P232. It is ergonomically perfect for my hand and I believe I can deliver effective fire more quickly with this pistol than any other. So kindly disregard everything I said in that other thre...

Country Knives in Lancaster has probably the largest selection of Spydercos anywhere--very pricey, but they have 'em.

My uncle was a bombardier/navigator in an F-15 out of Seymour Johnson. He used to tell me stories about pulling so many Gs that the blood vessels in his feet would pop and full up his boots with blood.

Innovation with design and materials. Risk taking with design and materials. Variety. Finger choils. Spyderhole. Attention to ergos. "If you build it (correctly) they will come" attitude of the company.

My wife doesn't like knives but she deals with mine. Other people opening knives freak her out. Frankly I agree, unknown people with sharp tools are only slightly less scary than behind the wheel of a car. :) Gross statistics, roughly 15x more likely to die in a car crash than by a knife (and about...

The way I read it, it only says the two should be treated equally, which I think they should. I don't think either should be illegal. On the other hand, I think the present situation, where a knife that flies open by itself if you touch the blade is legal while one which flies open when you press a...

Why get a compromise/specialty round? If you want big, just get a .45. If you don't plan to carry it daily, why polymer? If I could only have one gun, it would be a Ruger GP 100 in .357. Point and shoot. Rugged. Stainless. They "need" action jobs or a lot of use, but once the action smoothes out, th...
