    Thumbs up Pimped SubClaws by potterma

    Aloha ALL,

    Long overdue thank you to potterma for making me and Mrs. Daywalker these matching Fibermascus scales for our SubClaws!!!




    When I first saw potterma's interpretation of the use of this material, I was floored. I mean, I pretty much always get floored when I see his work, but this one for some reason just "got to me". So I asked for a set for my wife and I and he delivered! Now, these scales can be placed on any of my SUBCOM Folder/Variants, but my wife and I decided on the SubClaw since it is our favorite SFV.

    BTW, mine is the black and green one!



    God bless you potterma and keep up the great work!

    Mahalo retsup99,

    Yeah, they are even "cooler" with these custom scales. The SubClaw is a great lil' knife that uh...can get the job done.

    God bless and thanks for checking them out!

    I EDC a Subclaw as well, great knife. Definitely made sexier by the addition of the scales.

    nice....they used these in the 1st Bourne Identity. The assasin uses them in the Paris apartment. I am out of touch with the new knife laws...so I must ask: are these legal? I have kept my Israeli commando knife in my safe. :-(

    These remind me of The Bagh Nakh, or Tiger's Claw◊, was developed in India for self-defense and used by the first Maratha Emperor Shivaji...

    Cool...He definitely does nice work. I enjoy browsing the "pimp my knife" threads on USN to see all the cool stuff guys are doing to "individualize" the factory knives.

    Potterma does an excellent job, no doubt about that. What I like most about the pimped out versions is it adds to the hidden right out in the open appeal the SubCom has for me. Even if the assailant sees it, they see a cute little knife with no idea what a truly deadly self defense weapon it really is.

    Wow, that must be new. Have to admit I had "no idea" what a subclaw was and had to check out of curiosity. Seems to be a varient of the flat version someone made a few yrs ago that you could fit in your wallet. Like this version
    much better. Awesome design. Remember the old hawk billed knives and carpet cutter styles. Think that a lady named Gracilla Cracillus Boggs (???) was
    one of first to adopt the "claw" into a mean self-defense blade. The rakers that Wolfshead posted reminded me of the old palm claws that "ninjas" use to climb up a wall with. Out of curiosity, just how "thick" is that the Subclaw? Does it have a pocket clip? I live withing few minutes from Smoky Mtn Knifeworks (they have almost everything known to man and unbelievable displays) and might want to take a drive to check this one out.

    The SubCom series knives by Chad Los Banos AKA DayWalker have been around for a little while. I too just discovered them a short while back. They are available in several blade styles as can be seen at Boker Knives by Chad Los Banos I posted a review of mine at Tiny Boker Poker. There was alot of great input on that thread including links to some excellent SD demos using the SubClaw. IMO the design is nothing short of brilliant making it the only little knife I have ever considered as a viable SD weapon. I EDC mine as a money clip. While it is not my primary weapon of choice I have no doubt when all else fails my SubCom will show the bad guy his guts long before he see's my cash in his hands.
