    Hey we might be pretty good singing together, that's about what my singing voice would sound like....

    I like the Kahr lineup and will probably be what I wind up with for a backup gun when I finally get around to getting one. I will be looking forward to the range report, Dan.

    First off, many people believe I have very pleasant pipes. At least I've never been accused of making baboons rut. However, it appears I have been the butt of some sporting humor, and as such, I've already ordered a skid-pallet of toilet paper and a water tanker truck to TP your houses.

    And so with bruised ego, let me state my postion. Nice gun for a 9x19. It appears that the triggers have improved, even though they were pretty nice already for this type of DAO pistol. It is very difficult to catch your spleen on the extractor--not to mention any names, although his initials are 'Euc.'

    I'm not tickled by your choice of a cheese knife. It looks like something one of my Corsican cousins would use on Velveeta. It almost looks like a kerambit. As your financial postion improves, see me.

    Now, let me alone with my tears.

    Tourist,
    you are most mistaken, that is not a Karambit, but simply a bottle opener. See the nice ring at the end of the handle. Hey, wait....this thing opens up - hey!!! theres a blade in here.

    Ok, whatcha got, T?

    Jdsummer, nice to meet you.

    At this stage of my life it's more "What do you need?" not "Whatcha got?"

    I have common jackknives, automatics and fixed blades. Some I rely on every day, some I cannot figure out how to use or why they were invented.

    For example, exactly what animal was the 505 Jefferies designed to kill? (Perhaps the owner by blunt trauma.)

    QKS,

    Naw, it's not that, exactly, as far as he's involved. (Unless we're yanking him, in that case, "What the flip were you thinking and where did you get those pants?)

    I'm just not a bandwagon guy. I get into trouble all of the time because if I dis a product for my use, people falsely imply that I'm dissing it for their use, as well. Unless it's dangerous, YMMV. Then use the product.

    A kerambit is hard to sharpen and of little use. My belief is that it's a craze, albeit an expensive craze. A year from now they will probably all be in drawers or on e-bay. (My opinion. For me. YMMV. This is a personal opinion. Paint it cammo. Wrap it in paracord. Sleep with it. Sell all of your knives and buy stock in the kerambit company. Gild it. Bead it. Braid it. Knotted. Polka dotted.)

    Personally, I don't care for it.

    (QKS, you tell me, besides a disclaimer, should I use signal flares?)

    Signal Flares

    Signal Flares might not be such a good idea as they could possibly create "hot spots" on folks respective computer monitors.
    Best just stick with the simple written disclaimer.

    T-man,
    no harm, no foul. I practice (poorly) some Kenpo, and the ECK suits my limited styles. Plus, it opens dip cans perfectly. And yeah, there is a little gimick factor to it. It was a gift from my training partner and cousin, so it also has a little sentimental value to it. But the more I have implemented it, the more I like it. Sorta like pearl grips on a pistol. The old plastic grips worked fine, but, hey-some folks like to play dressup.

    When I decide on my next shiv, I will most certainly seek your counsel. And I would rather support a forum member then buy from the mall.

    Dan

    Prospector,

    I agree, there's nothing like the graceful lines of an Italian stiletto. Unless it's stiletto heels on some graceful lines...

    I hate to bore you, but my most used knives fall into the 'tool' class. A Li'l Temperance, a BG-42 Buck 110, a SOG Tomcat and for a fixed blade, a Buck Big Sky 403B.

    I have a few Pro Techs and one Microtech, of collector interest.

    Rather than have a 'tactical,' I'd rather have an 'attack tickle,' if you catch my drift.

    Tourist....yep me too...most of my knives are in the "tool" class. The Gerber Mark I was the boot knive I carried with my survival equipment in the Navy. Others were primary for camping purposes. However, and you'll prob laugh at this, but when I was a little kid, there was a western TV series called Jim Bowie...at age 5 he became my hero....I started throwin and mostly breaking every knife I could get my hands on...by the time I was in High School, I could probably have joined a circus....I was pretty darned good out to 10 yrds....that would be my "attack" tickler...only problem would be "missing" ! LOL!! Haven't thrown in about 8 years, but could probably get the knack back. I never trained for up close and personal knife fighting....that's why I have the CCW now.
