It's a pretty good bet that every gun owner has at least one knife other than the ones found in the kitchen. Whether it be a defensive weapon, a multi-tool, or a blade to open packages and clean out your fingernails, I'm willing to bet the vast majority of members here have a blade of some sort within arms' reach right now. Is it possible to start a new Forum concerning knives? I'm pretty sure just one forum topic will generate enough conversation that it would get confusing trying to scroll through it all. A new Forum would allow sub-topics for people to discuss what they prefer. I doubt many have a Cold Steel Recon Tanto in their glovebox, and I personally don't care much about Swiss Army knives. This would generate quite a bit more discussion and probably increase membership, allowing more people to be exposed to the gun culture. Just a thought. And now for the attention getting comment;

Tazor, shut up

for a college kid, your spelling sucks. I doubt you are who you say, I think you're a fifteen year old boy with one foot in the closet still.

It shouldn't be allowed in a knife forum on account of it's an embarrasment and would be shunned and bullied by all the other knives. Really. Best thing you could do would be throw it away. Even a Swiss Army knife is superior to your POS.

Piss off, guy. If you're a college student, shouldn't you be in class. English 101, perhaps?

I disagree, schuyler

It wouldn't make a very good defensive weapon, but it'd be fine for whittlin' or opening packages. Hell, pieces of obsidian or flint have a place in a knife discussion.

Hey runnaway762

what do you think of this?
If you read this, you WILL forward it on.

You just won't be able to stop yourself.

The average age of the military man is 19 years. He is a short haired, tight-muscled kid who, under normal circumstances is considered by society as half man, half boy. Not yet dry behind the ears, not old enough to buy a beer, but old enough to die for his country. He never really cared much for work and he would rather wax his own car than wash his father's, but he has never collected unemployment either.

He's a recent High School graduate; he was probably an average student , pursued some form of sport activities, drives a ten year old jalopy, and has a steady girlfriend that either broke up with him when he left, or swears to be waiting when he returns from half a world away. He listens to rock and roll or hip-hop or rap or jazz or swing and a 155mm howitzer..

He is 10 or 15 pounds lighter now than when he was at home because he is working or fighting from before dawn to well after dusk. He has trouble spelling, thus letter writing is a pain for him, but he can field strip a rifle in 30 seconds and reassemble it in less time in the dark.

He can recite to you the nomenclature of a machine gun or grenade launcher and use either one effectively if he must.

He digs foxholes and latrines and can apply first aid like a professional..

He can march until he is told to stop, or stop until he is told to march.

He obeys orders instantly and without hesitation, but he is not without spirit or individual dignity.

He is self-sufficient.

He has two sets of fatigues: he washes one and wears the other. He keeps his canteens full and his feet dry.

He sometimes forgets to brush his teeth, but never to clean his rifle. He can cook his own meals, mend his own clothes, and fix his own hurts.

If you're thirsty, he'll share his water with you; if you are hungry, his food. He'll even split his ammunition with you in the midst of battle when you run low.

He has learned to use his hands like weapons and weapons like they were his hands.

He can save your life - or take it, because that is his job.

He will often do twice the work of a civilian, draw half the pay, and still find ironic humor in it all.

He has seen more suffering and death than he should have in his short lifetime.

He has wept in public and in private, for friends who have fallen in combat and is unashamed.

He feels every note of the National Anthem vibrate through his body while at rigid attention, while tempering the burning desire to 'square-away ' those around him who haven't bothered to stand, remove their hat, or even stop talking.

In an odd twist, day in and day out, far from home , he defends their right to be disrespectful..

Just as did his Father, Grandfather, and Great- grandfather, he is paying the price for our freedom. Beardless or not, he is not a boy.
He is the American Fighting Man that has kept this country free for over 200 years.

He has asked nothing in return, except our friendship and understanding. Remember him, always, for he has earned our
respect and admiration with his blood.

And now we even have women over there in danger, doing their part in this tradition of going to War when our nation calls us to do so.

As you go to bed tonight, remember this shot. . .

A short lull, a little shade and a picture of loved ones in their helmets.

A Prayer wheel for our military...
please don't break it Please send this on after a short prayer.

Prayer Wheel

'Lord, hold our troops in your loving hands.

Protect them as they protect us.

Bless them and their families for the selfless acts they perform for us in our time of need. Amen.'

When you receive this, please stop for a moment and say a prayer for our troops in Afghanistan , sailors on ships, and airmen in the air, and for those in Iraq , Afghanistan and all foreign countries.

There is nothing attached...

This can be very powerful...

Of all the gifts you could give a U.S. Airman, Soldier, Coastguardsman, Marine,or Sailor, prayer is the very best one.

I can't break this one, sorry.
Pass it on to everyone and pray .

Thank you

Thank you for putting that up, my youngest son is nearly 19 and wants to join up as his Grandfather, his Uncles and I did.

'Never forget' I think is the thing we should say on rising and before going to bed, because if we forget and future generations forget then all that was done was for nothing.

I don't forward. I've seen so many of these things already, it's ridiculous. I try to keep God out of my work anyway. I've never called upon him in times of distress, I figure he'll decide which side to take. I trust in my training and my soldiers whom I've trained.

I've never met anyone under fire who wasn't praying like crazy. And to care for and pray for do whatever we can for our warriors in harm's way is a good thing no matter what anyone says to you Mark. You keep it up with stuff like this.

Koji

PS yes you can do your job and keep your mind on your job under fire and still pray like crazy. Somehow I don't find anything weird or unusual in that at all.

Then stop posting. You make an ass out of yourself every time you do. Post a pic of the Tazer you actually own. I'm calling bullshit. As long as you play the part of the drama queen, I will call you out on being a fifteen year old boy. Tom Selleck is your 6'4" "boyfriend", isn't he?

ebear, knife picks

I don't know much about knife prices, as I never really looked at the price tag, but I really like the assisted opening Ken Onion designed folders made by Kershaw knives and I think just about anything made by Columbia River Knife and Tool is well worth the money. In my pocket right now is a Benchmade Mel Pardue knife, because my platoon leader bought one for each squad leader and had our names and call signs engraved on the blade prior to the last deployment. I have knives by nearly every mainstream manufacturer at home. One of my last picks would be the Smith and Wesson knives ans they get loose and dull very quickly. Gerber makes decent knives, but their steel has gotten awfully soft and I only like their multi-tool. I plan to post a series of pics of all my knives, but only if a new topic is created, as I don't want to violate the guidelines for posting pics and it will be quite a few pics to show them all even if put by category as most have some sort of story.

I got in a fight with three guys in a club and one stabbed me in the hand. I put two in the hospital, one in Intensive Care. Okay, that's all a lie that I told people when my hand was bandaged up. I was opening a pellet gun with my Kershaw when it slipped and I put the knife through my hand, filleted off a piece of flesh, and severed an artery, all requiring 23 stitches. The really fucked up part was that I had a pair of scissors on the floor next to me. The funny thing is that I actually did get stabbed in the hand by a Mexican and he only caused a very small puncture before I took his knife away. So I am more dangerous with a knife than a Mexican. At least to myself. Don't judge.

My pellet gun

It was a single shot that I used to take quite a few squirrels and sparrows from my third-floor apartment balcony in KS. I just threw it away a couple days ago, the seal to the air piston went out. Oh well, time to get an adult air rifle. Ebolla is for pussies. I've had AIDS three times. I just go to Jiffy Lube for a flush and fill of the veins and arteries and I'm good as new. That's a joke, but I bet it's only a matter fo time before medical science is able to do that for people with blood-related problems.

My son wasn't sure if you meant that for him or not. If you did, well I don't really know. But I'll remind him tomorrow when he gets home from school to answer you. He goes out of his way, for the most part, to answer every question he thinks is directed at him unless it's something he would consider mean or inappropriate to him. Do old black and white samurai movies count as gladiator movies? Both of my sons love them. There's a channel we have on cable called IFC and at 0700 hours every saturday morning they are both up and have their cha, that's hot green tea, and movie snacks ready to go and they put on their headbands and have their swords next to them and they just devour whatever samurai movie is being shown that day. They especially like this series of movies about the Blind Swordsman. They love those movies. About gladiator movies, I just don't know.

Knives

I love the line Sean Connery had in the film, The Untouchables. "Eh, just like a wop, bringing a knife, to a gunfight." On the other hand I love my swords and my knives and my shuriken. I use these as tools to teach those martial arts that use weapons. The Mado, Aikido and Iado, which is the Aikido form of swordsmanship and is markedly different from styles like Kendo, even though I do find Kendo matches fun to watch. I never really learned the style. The style I learned and teach is the Iado form.
Sure, why not guys? Let's have a knives forum.

emerson wave series

I carry an emerson with me everywhere I go, except airplanes...

ANywho, it is a good knife, but I have a hard time keeping it sharp. Wire, rebar, concrete, expanded metal, and maybe some tile is really hard on an edge!!! WHo would have guessed that?

Great knife though, it is my second one. I also use buck knives when hunting. I carry two trappers in my pocket, one on my sling, and 3 in my pack. That way I always have a sharp blade. I sharpen them at camp after the day of hunting. I like the idea of a knife forum. They seem to compliment firearms perfectly.

The new versions are pretty good, but the older versions are uncomortable with the way they opened when gripping something hard with the pliers.

Knife forum

I like it, right now in my pocket is a Benchmade Mel Pardue. Made in Tawian, just like most the other knives I own for some reason. I have a nice Browning I carry when hunting, only problem is meat gets stuck in the "Buckmark" that is cut out of the tang near the handle. That makes it a pain to clean. Go with the knife forum though.

Hunting knives or ?

Some of the best (read functional) knives that I've found over the years are from Bob Dozier. He is backlogged to major retailers like AG Russell. His steel is generally D2 (at 60-62RC)which he heat treats himself. I was amazed at the edge retention his knives have. They are not as hard as the Japanese super steel (65-66RC) but you can sharpen them on your own, "if you have to". I generally pass a blade over the sticks a couple of swipes after any kind of use. That is a hell of a lot easier than starting from scratch or trying to find someone knowledgeable enough to put the right edge back on it. An up and coming knife guy I can recommend is J. Neilson Custom Knives, a Journeyman and an real knife artist. He also has some really functional stuff thats nice to look at.

I can use a knife (other than for cooking) but I've had trouble finding a nice balanced one. I'm little, only 5'4" and have small hands, the palm is 3 and a half inches long and 3" wide so many of the hunting and other knives that you can get here in Ireland are too big for me and I'd need a wrist support just to lift them.

Has anyone any suggestions?

you may want to google up Arno Barnard. He's a South African custom maker. He puts out some smaller hand gripped knives as well as some regular sized (which I have). the folks making custom knives aren't necessarily cheap. Like anything you pay for what your get. The folks I've mentioned can give you working knives at a reasonable price. Their knives are meant for cutting not prying, beating etc.

Thank you ever so much

It would be a cutting knife I would need, if I want to hit anything I use my Tonfa which I had to cut down as well but it's a nice thing to keep by the front door. I did try using a Tonfa and a knife before which I liked but the knife was too big, if I get a smaller one it should be comfortable.

What are the knife laws like in the US? here in Ireland it's strict and eventhough I'd feel happier if I could carry a fire arm I know I would never be allowed any form of permission no matter the reason for the request.

anybody have a Big 5 Sporting Goods close by? I've picked up 5 Smith and Wesson knives (M&P, SWAT, and extreme ops) over the past 6 mnths or so for around $10-$14 a piece. I don't know tons about knives, but these seem to be pretty good quality locking blades. I know they usually retail for a lot more. A couple weeks a month, Big 5 will have a clearance on certain models that they sale for under $15... I couldn't pass it up.

I'm all in favor of having a Knives forum that we can do like Reaper suggests so that we can put sub forums with topics in it. I'd love for me and my boys to learn more about the modern ones and share what we know about sharp bladed weaponry from the world of marial art.

I for one am very much intrested in swords and would love to hear IRONkoji opinion of them. it seems to me a prudent man would have--should have- an alternate weapon at his disposal...jus sayin

Smith and Wesson knives are garbage. They don't hold an edge nearly as well as CRKT or Kershaw knives, and they get loose very quickly. Think of S&W knives like Hi Point guns. As long as you don't use them a lot, they'll be fine. For production folders to be used for general purpose or defense in a pinch, my top three in order are CRKT, Benchmade, and Kershaw. 5.11, the company that makes "tactical" clothing makes decent folders as well, but the tip of the pocket clip sticks out a bit much and will scratch furniture and car doors if you're not careful. We really need this knife forum up and running, this topic is going to get pretty long, pretty quick.

oh well. I bash hi points so much, I knew it had to come back to bite me in the ass someday. Like I said, I'm no knife expert... but for what I use them for, they work fine and I've seen worse. for $10-$12 I couldn't pass them up. I'll check the ones that you suggested, but if they're pricey, I'll have to wait. All my extra loot is tied up in guns, ammo and motorcycles

Answer, ebear

I'm fat and like butter, so I actually use a masonry trowel for my butter knife. Or if I want fresh butter, a Stihl chainsaw to take the cow's udders off and a paint can shaker to whip the milk into rich, creamy butter.
