No unfortunetly not, my old buddy/supplier Pertinax told me this, and I must admit when handeling a 26" it seems just abit much, like Im a tad out of control with it. The 24" is a complete different story though, Its easier to keep the baton under control while swinging it under force. I suppose its...

Ive got a Casco 24" black expandable baton, Ive never been lucky enough to handle a ASP or Monadnock baton, but I must say these things are **** solid. Id hate to be the one to take a shot from one of these babys. Its been suggested to me the way to decide on the length of baton that will best suit ...

My SpyderCard does the exact same thing, from when I got it to now, its still got a 30 deg edge and is hair popping sharp. When I slice paper and it sticks, if I pull gentally at the thin slivers sticking to it just abit, they will get pulled back if I let go. Thus I can only think that while the pa...

I personally hearing what Casiopeia's son Stephen had to say, and myself been in scouts years n years ago would stay clear of the Native, Its a stunning knife, but I would want atleast a 40/60 combo edge, Serrated at the butt end. I think a Pro Grip style knife would be stunning together with a Nati...

Rom, and if the job deserves it then the equipment is fine, you dont see me targeting SEMI's at all.

Ye ofcause as has been said so many times, the best weapon is the one you have on hand. I was just wondering about a knife in this style crossed with something like the Gunting, with heavy material like G-10 and double thick metal scales. I think in the line of a kubotan/yawara stick the finger cuto...

Well personally I prefer SE for a defensive carry blade and ofcause as the guys have said, anything fibrous, the SE bites in like a dog and it dont let go which it real nice on things like fish (anything with a slippery surface). The Plainedges are better I find for my general day to day util use th...

Well in all honesty Ive never seen a Monadnock baton, now that you have meantioned it, it is off to go do some research for me.

Ive always wanted either a 21" or 24" Casco/ASP baton.

Will mabey look into one sometime soon.

Well I think there are 2 major camps in the expandable baton industry, ASP and Casco. Both I hear are very well made and take one hellava beating and just keep going. Im quite fond of the fact that with a extra accessory, you can join your ASP baton to a ASP Triad Flashlight which is more or less in...

As per most things money can buy, you guys in the US of A have no clue just how lucky you are with the prices you think are "outragous". In South Africa we are currently paying over 4 rand per litre, soon to be over 5 rand. Now, it is roughly 6.6 Rand to 1 USD, and 5 Litres if I am correct is 1 Gall...
