A few images to brighten up your day...
So I've been needing a nice fixed blade knife for some time. It's mainly to go into my SAR / BOB bag, but I've been unable to find out what I wanted. I'm in my buddy's shop the other day, looking at some of the new stuff he's got in (he deals in Fire / Police / EMS uniforms and equipment and such) and he's got a nice new Kabar knife, or several actually. I finally decide I want the little one, and for the price he was asking, I couldn't turn him down. So I'm happy with it. A few pictures for you guys, so you don't yell at me!!!
Just the knife and it's sheath. I'm not crazy about the sheath included, and might be upgrading to a custom kydex, but I'm not sure.
My USPc and mag, as well as a Surefire light and my daily carry benchmade knife. All this stuff would be in the BOB.
Same stuff as above, just a different view.
And the last one.
What do you guys think?
advantages of tanto points
