Is cutting ropes/bags/whatever military use or kitchen use?

When I look at a good knife, I see one of the last examples of true craftsmanship left in the modern world.

Everything from ergonomics through materials used, are a display of where aesthetic form and functionality meet in perfect harmony.

I am unsure if it is one of the last examples, but it is one example, to be sure. And there are still artisans who make these works of functional and beautiful art.

I generally carry a small tactical folder with me, not for the "tactical" side of things necessarily but because of it's multifunctional use. And I have several of them. They fit my hand well; and I have opened up many a box and cut many a taped parcel with them. Not only that, but I had a 1990 Honda Civic hatchback, bought new, but which later had a recall for stuck safety belts. I never wanted to end up in a fiery car crash with a stuck safety belt that I would be slapping my head for eternity mubbling, "If but for not having that knife...."

Knives are indeed useful, and can be pretty too. As per use, I have taken a very few Filipino stick and knife classes which do outline the use of these things if the need arises (but I wouldn't trust myself there unless it was a last ditch effort). But for me, just having a knife has made much of my day-to-day life easier knowing that I don't have to search for a utility knife to cut open a box, whether for work or to cut the security tie wraps that go around a new toy for my daughter.

One of my favorite 9mm's. Manufactured in Czeck Republic. It is one of the most accurate and well made 9mm's on the market today. It's design has stood the test of time for 35yrs.

The CZ75B 9mm








The magazine holds 16rds, but I recenlty bought a new magazine that holds 18 for less reloading.

Now we're talking! Thanks for the photos Brian cool .

You see it amazes me that in the UK, we are the 2nd largest arms producer in the world (maybe 3rd now), and it is only 70 years ago that the home guard were armed militia charged with defending their towns in case of Nazi invasion, yet somewhere from the 1950's onward, it was decided that we, as a nation, were suddenly not to be trusted with firearms.

A gun is inert. When handled and cared for properly, it is not a dangerous thing. The danger comes from the owner/user. Don't ban guns, ban idiots! or at least allow me to protect myself from idiots! wink

Anyway, this clip is for you Brian. In a parallel universe, these guys are my drinking buddies, and so are you smile

Sweet. NutNFancy does some good reviews on youtube. I don't know why, but he is completely enamored with glocks, I hate them. Those were some nice grown-up toys there for sure. grin

This one is a 100yr old design. It was designed around the .45acp and made for combat. Yes, it is cocked and locked. That's the way it is supposed to be carried. It is extremely accurate and powerful.





From 21ft.


I've actually gotten better since the gun has been broken in. I can do better than that at 10yards. This one is also equipped with tritium night sights for good sight acquisition in low light conditions.

I think he likes glocks because he is obsessed with lightness and compact design over everything else. This is a long running theme of Banter with the Razor's edge crew in their footage, where Nutn' is always arriving with pea-shooters and toothpicks ;)/ Personaly, i think he should hit the gym and treat himself to something with a bit more 'oomph' grin

Some sweet skills:

Nice, Brian! Lately I have been more enamoured of the 1911 than just about anything else I have shot. Single stack for smaller hands and enough weight to attenuate recoil. And big, slow bullets in .45acp. smile Have four that get circulated into my regular practice, but use two the most. As for polymer, I like the XDs since the standard grip frames are smaller (have less girth) than Glocks, or CZs or Sigs for that matter. I would really like to wrap my paw around a CZ, but my smallish mitts don't seem to hang onto them as well as a 1911.

That, and my Remington 870 with 7 in the tube, are all I need for homestead protection. smile But I am eyeing and M1 scout rifle. Nothing like a .308 to reach out and touch a target at 500 yards plus. smile
