  • Let's talk about folding blades.....

    My wife picked this up for me at Mossy Point Outfitters for $20 from the 2nd-hand case....it's a Buck Omni Hunter, and I think it may be the sturdiest lockback I've ever seen....

        Nice folder saw. While we are on the subject, Smith and Wesson just came out with an outstanding line of tactical knives. I picked up four yesterday. They are heavy and sturdy. They do not come super sharp from the factory but I believe they will hold an edge. The prices are very reasonable.

          Saw,

          That's a nice one you got there, a keeper.
          Nope, not talkin' 'bout the blade, man!
          You lucky dog.
          I hope you appreciate what you have.
          If it looks ignernt, but it works, then it ain't ignernt.

            Hey, C.O.,
            Is there a thread for sharpening knives? I have a terrible time trying to sharpen any blade. What's the secret?
            Or is it, 'cause I'm ignernt?
            If it looks ignernt, but it works, then it ain't ignernt.

              I don't know of a thread but there are some sharpening systems out there that are fool proof. Shop around.

                may not be correct, but it works...

                for the few serrated edges that i've got, i use what my schoutmaster taught me about saw sharpening-a good sturdy file...i use a round/half round or a very small flat file for my serrated blades...and come to think of it they work well enough on my straight edges, too

                    You wrote "My wife picked this up..."

                    Sounds like you have a very fine lady. Someone that thinks about you, cares about you, helps you, supports you. That's special. I can only hope and wish for that.

                      It works both ways.....my new tac vest came in yesterday....I'm just giddy....

                        Big Giddy Saw,

                        How about a pic of that Tac Vest? Where'd you get it?

                        I was bidding on a chest rig on Ebay couple days ago. I can't prove it, but I think the seller was bidding against me, after I hit my top price, I stopped bidding, sale ended and wouldn't you know it, he offered me a second chance offer at my last bid, uhm, no thanks. (I'm not that ignernt!)

                          Ive collected dozens of folding knives over the years and figured out what knives are good for different jobs. As for big sturdy folders, i recomend the any of the big folders from cold steel. The cold steel pocket bushman is a huge folder that you can pick up for about 30 bucks, which is a steal for a cold steel knife. But make sure you get the newly designed ones because the old ones had a problem with the looking mechanism. So i guess the only way to be sure your getting a new one is directly from the cold steel site
