    Boker Fixed Blade Closeout

    This could be a fun project if you want to learn how to install a handle on a knife. 440 Stainless. About 14". $19.95 USD, with a cordura sheath. Also appears to be a decent price:

    I'm playing with the idea of doing one of these.........A fun winter project!

    I'm thinking that's a great deal. I might just grab one or two.

    Thanks, Richard.

    Here's what I just found on this knife:

    The Tan-Kri is quite a big throwing knife with its length of 32.6cm and a weight of 390g, making it suitable for long distance throws. The two wooden parts of the handle can be detached by sliding a button. The resulting solid peace of 4034-steel is 4mm thick and weights 330g. The mechanism is precise but not without play, the handle parts can move about half a millimeter. Tip and blade are razor sharp, as the Tan-Kri is intended as a utility knife that can also be used for camping and hunting. This is not an ideal solution, as both John Bailey and Böker had to admit, because it is nearly not possible to repair dents that a thrown knife with a sharp thus thin blade can easily catch. (Not to speak from the injury potential such a tool has.) To make at least the tip more resistent, it has been cut our like a tanto knife. The blade has been shaped like a Kukri, slightly bend and front heavy. Thus the Name: Tanto and Kukri became Tan-Kri.
    Despite these issues, the Tan-Kri is a very good knife for the ambitious thrower which sticks especially well with John`s knife throwing technique.
    Also:

    The TanKri is, made from (J-2 Stainless Steel) and tempered to 53 Rockwell. This is a great compromise in tempering, flexibility and strength, allowing for edge holding capability, with minimum effort in resharpening. Stainless steel is a major plus for hunters, anglers and scuba divers. The ease of handle removal makes it a snap to clean after dressing game. Merely release the handles and toss the knife in boiling water, or put it in the dishwasher when you get home, and you will have a sterile knife. For us throwers, this is great for removing pine-sap and other residue from your knife, after a day of throwing. The handle can remain off when you're around saltwater.


    I'll just use mine in the woods - no throwing for me.

    Also found it offered by another dealer ($39) with a cord handle, not the wood. I may just pick one up and practice my paracord wrapping on it.

    Paracord

    Paracord wrapping videos, as well as a lot of paracord in different colors. They also have a lot of neat gadgets and bags. I carry some of their tools at work and I use one of the black MOLLE bags as a diaper bag.


    Video at the bottom (and a great tool, too):

    Best battery holder ever:

    Lots of stuff on youtube, too. My knife should be here any day now.

    Knife

    Mine is here! Such a good looking blade, I'm about to order two more for Christmas gifts.

    In related news, the UPS guy came sneaking up on the porch a few minutes ago. I guess he was running late and wanted to drop it off quiet since it was almost 9PM. Got the 4 legged alarms going and... Well, I think the Surefire kept him from seeing the Glock but it kept things nice and bright and easy to see he was no threat in spite of what the alarms thought. Own a light, own the night, own the fight, right?

    BTW, I ordered 6 hanks of paracord (2 each of camo, woodland, and black) this AM, and County Comm already shipped! Fast 'lil buggers.

    m4040.com is a great site on working with knives and modifying them. Lots of good ideas. Here's the direct link to his cord wrap instructions:
    How to Cordwrap a knife handle

    BTW, I just ordered a blank today. It will make a nice short term project.
