    i want to carry something like that, inverted on my belt so it's concealed and i can quickly draw downward and swing into action.

    but stupid georgia law will let me conceal a gun, but not a knife

    Similar laws here in Michigan. In fact, any fixed blade (of any length!) is illegal to carry, unless "carried as or adapted to hunting". And they mean it!

    I used to have a Buck Master. Wore it scuba diving the Great Lakes! I think that one was stolen along with much of my collection.
    To it's credit though, the handle only leaked a few times, I probably damaged the O ring seal at some point.

    Reminded me of something I saw on History channel....

    Many of the "Hell's Angels" carried ball pein hammers on their person because there was no law stating that one could not carry a concealed hammer. I may be little unconventional....but this tickles me.

    The one pouch is supposed to have a simple Silva compass but it wasn't there when I bought the knife used from a guy on eBay a few years ago. He said this was the only thing wrong with it, he lost the compass. He never even sharpened the knife either... it desn't need it. Even though I sharpen all my knives, this one I won't touch. The other pouch holds the 'points'. They screw in to the hand guard to act like a grapling hook if ever need be. This is one of the highest quality knives I've ever seen and I'm guessing it's the reason why they used to be issued to the U.S. Navy Seals. Buck doesn't make the Buckmaster anymore, and this is an authentic Buckmaster, but there is a lot of reproductions out there. You can find out more about it by googling it. This knife is so well made, I am awed by just holding it. My Rambo: First Blood part II reproduction pales in comparrison to this knife. It's almost twice as think and a lot heavier even though the Rambo knife is bigger. The serrated edges on the spine are sharper on the Buckmaster also.

    At the pommel there is a metal loop where you can tie a rope. The points can be screwed into the hand guard so the knife can be used as a grapliing hook to either climb or descend a rock face (or similar). And yes, the knife is strong enough to be able to do that with it. The handle is also hollow to allow the carrying of strike anywhere matches and similar small items.

    Thanks... I've wanted one for years. Then I found out in 2004 Buck stopped making them back in 1999 (I think) so I searched eBay for one. I paid only $150.
