    ...with a digicam handy?

    I just stumbled across this pic in a dusty corner of my hard drive. It's a few knives out of date, but what the heck...

    Nice selection of knives......I like the bayonet in the top left hand corner. Which rifles is it used for?

    Hmmm....just about enough knives to outfit my old company back when I was still serving as a draftee.

    The knife in the top left-hand corner actually isn't a bayonet; it's a U.S. Navy Mk.3 Mod.0 diver's knife. :cool:

    How could you be bored with a nice collection like that?
    What the heck is that funky blue smurf slayer on the left?

    sorry, my mistake......it's the bayonet on the top right hand corner that I was referring to. Which rifle does it fit?

    purdy. I can't say I've been bored with a camera and had an idea to do something like that, though.

    Very nice knife collection. I really like sharp pointy type things.:D

    How do you like your Sebenza?

    Dirty greedy capitalist. :p

    I especially like the Sebenza. The Ken Onion looks classy too. How do you like that blade geometry?

    1) The funky blue smurf slayer is a Boker "Titanum" chef's knife, with a funky titanium alloy blade.

    2) The bayonet in the top right-hand corner goes with a Turkish M38 Mauser.

    3) I absolutely love my Sebenza. It's an old "P-stamp" knife with the brightly polished blade; sharp as blazes, attractive, and hella strong, it goes with me everywhere in my left-side jeans pocket. (My Emerson Commander is usually in my right-side pocket.)

    4) The Onion is actually one of his earliest speedsafes, and one of two done with koa wood scales. Its mate recently sold for an obscene amount of money online, and now I'm pretty much afraid to wear the Onion anyplace but to parties and such. Darn shame, 'cause it's an amazingly sweet blade. Tight, beautiful attention to detail, and so sharp, it'll cut your eyeballs just looking at it...

    makdaddy03,

    Yup, that's a Gerber Applegate folder of the large variety.

    Paracord handles and loops

    Tamara, would you be so kind as to point me to some link or reference where I can learn to tie a nice, tight Paracord handle and loops like you've got on some of those?

    Thanks,
    FM

    runt_,

    You just posted that pic of the Ladyhawk because you know it gets me all weak in the knees... :D

    BTW, I love that montage Oleg did of the Breed! I've used the larger version of it for desktop wallpaper before... :cool:

    Felonius Monk,

    Heh.

    I barely possess the requisite manual dexterity to tie my shoes, much less a paracord knot on a knife.

    We could hook up for lunch at Charlie Pepper's sometime, and I can get your knife into the hands of someone who can tie a paracord doohickey on it, if you want. :cool:

    I know how to tie that knot on the Sebenza, but it's hard to describe in text. If you can't wait out the weekend for pics, do a search on how to tie a hangman's or noose knot - it's the same thing.

    Hey Tamara,

    If you like the Ladyhawk, check out the Emerson Combat Kerambit.

    Tam--
    Nice of you to offer!

    We'll have to do that soon. I still want to hook up at Guncraft sometime and shoot a few rounds from your P7M8 and your Les Baer. Geez, how time flies when you're a cog in the corporate wheel! :rolleyes:

    Thanks!
    FM

    Runt-- Found that one. Got the loop. Thanks!

    Thanks Schuey!

    I had seen that one before, and there's a disconnect (probably in MY brain ONLY) from fig. 2 to fig. 3. There's either a sequence missing, or SOMETHING.

    I emailed Strider Knives and asked them to put written descriptions in. They thanked me for the input, and apparently blew it off.

    Oh well. I am well-known among my friends to be "mechanically challenged", so this is nothing new for me.

    You KNOW what they say about trying to teach a pig to sing.
    OINK! ;)
