    Anybody have one? I have three! Two black, one olive, all with the saw blade.

    One is in the car, one is in the tool box, one is kept pretty, just to play with.

    I think it is a great work knife for the money (you can find them for a bit less than $30).

    I want to get a few more, they are so cheap, easy to sharpen, bullet proof and some say you can throw them as well (I never have).

    They would make a great sap as well, when sheathed.

    I like them but the bottle opener quillon is standard on euro milspecs for most nations. I think the knives are actually made by Eicchorn. The GLOCK knives or identical twins are available from other jobbers. This company makes many if ot most of the bayonets and milspec knives for euro armies. Good quality

    Wow - I'll have to look into that, Drjones.

    Now, about those knives... is there really a separate, non-Glock factory making the knifes? Has it always been that way?

    You hadn't heard of that yet???:what:


    Regardless of who actually manufactures the knives, Glock gets a cut somewhere along the line. (No pun intended)

    Doc Jones Glock makes fine products. If you dont like their stance on Ballistic Fingerprinting thats fine, dont buy them. If people dont agree with you, that should be fine too. As for me, as I have no problem with ballisitic fingerprinting except to the extent its a waste of money, I have no problem with Glocks stance...

    And I like S&W too. And I beleive that felons should not own friearms. And I dont lie for the other guy. And I dont think ANY constitutional right is absolute. And the ATF agents are not thugs, nor are misguided liberals traitors.

    I do not want to hijack this into another ballistic fingerprinting thread.

    However, I will address your comments:

    Agreed. I own two Glocks, and I love them both. 30 hasn't been reliable yet, but I detail stripped the slide and that should HOPEFULLY fix my problems.

    I will not purchase any more Glocks as long as they support Ballistic Fingerprinting and otherwise undermine our basic human rights.

    If people agree that there should be a national database on ballistic fingerprinting, I would say they are uninformed. If they become aware of the facts and still support it, I would say they are plain ignorant.

    If someone continues to buy products from a company that supports a practice that is detrimental to the rights of all American Citizens, it is perfectly fine for me to hold whatever unpleasant opinion I want about them.

    Frankly, I would consider you uninformed on the whole issue. Again, I really do not want to hijack this thread, so we should start another if you want to get into it over BF.

    What about non-violent felons? And if we fear a person so much that even when he is released from prison, we do not see fit to restore ALL his rights to him, WHY is he being released in the first place?

    Your rights end where mine begin. Fine.

    I judge each person individually.

    You are half right about the "misguided liberals." However, from pictures I have seen and accounts I have read, most of the anti-war demonstrators you refer to are blatantly anti-American, and march with groups who are Anti-American.

    If they hate this country they should leave. If they stay here and spew anti-American sentiments and support those who support our enemies, darn straight they should be labeled traitors.

    Again, I do not wish to hijack this thread, so perhaps we should start another.

    Sven;
    Yup, a separate factory makes the knives. Eicchorn makes very high quality knives for the euro market -- excellent steel. The GLOCK/ Eicchorn knives were on sale at Sarco recently. They were also selling neat little Eicchorn boot knives -- but the army insignia and the Eicchorn name were buffed off. I felt cheated. It turns out that a company named Sherwood sold the same knives for years at a much lower price.
    BTW it seems that a smalll number of GLOCK knives were made with a different pattern blade. These knives are nothing more than the existing Austrian issue pattern. They are very similar to most Euro GI stuff.
