    Leatherman - Everybody should have one and (for sure) one in the Bug Out Bag.

    Dang! I love knives.

    I bought the BUSSE Argonne Assault LB and the Team Gemini.
    The Argonne Assault is a knuckle knife so I couldn't carry that in PA. but, I can collect it.

    So...what is the latest knife that I have my eye on?

    The Dustar ARAD. That would be the Du**Star an amazingly TOUGH D2 Tool Steel Israeli Made MIL Combat/Utility knife.

    I'm going to order one tomorrow.

    No Striders…!? Where's that "shakes head" emoticon when you need it...

    $550 for the CC I have, but if you're Mil or LE you get a considerable discount and you can always find decent deals on used ones. The warranty covers you for just about anything for a lifetime. Broken blades, scales, etc.

    My latest blade purchases were a ESEE Izula II and a Colt Steel Rifleman's Hawk.

    I am going to try to combo out for some backpacking. I figure any heavy chopping will fall to the hawk. Any fine work will go to the Izula II. Either one could be used for defense in a pinch.

    I have been impressed with the ESEE since I bought it though.

    Great looking knives. My EDC is a Kershaw Tanto Blur but I am looking for a belt knife.

    It always amazed me, how many different ,strange Knifes soldiers could come up with. Every time I tough I had seen it all they founds more.
    Most of them are not that useful it is just fun to one up each other on the coolest knife show down.
    Johnson brothers twins that came up with a different knife every month or so they bough a lot of knifes.

    Yah, there's plenty of truth in that statement haha.

    Since there is no standard issue anymore, atleast not in the units I've been with, it falls on us to get our own. So, there is a wide variety of blades out there.

    The link for the Monkey Edge site has a video that shows them breaking cinder blocks with that knife! He was cutting through a stinking metal wall with it. I've never seen anything like it. So long as you had something to hammer it with, you could literally cut your way through a wooden door with that knife - if you had to, etc. That's crazy.

    The NOSS Knife tests Videos are back!

    The NOSS Destructive test Vids are what originally "SOLD" me on Busse Combat Knives.

    Now I'm personally hooked. My little Mundane Chores camp knife is a Busse. My survival knife is now a Busse. My Bug Out Bag knife is a Busse. My "Beat The Crap Out Of It Around The House" knife is now a Busse & a few Safe Queen knives are Busse also.

    It looks like NOSS combined his Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 into single longer videos. Possibly that is why they were gone for a while.

    I honestly don't know of any other knives that can take this ultra-extreme amount of intentional abuse.

    Though there are other fantastic knives "out there" for sure & I would never intentionally put any good knife through even a fraction of this unless my life depended on it.

    These are LONG Vids now but, you can fast forward a bit.
