Old woods carry combo
Thought this would be an appropriate match, since the DWM is 103 years old, and the Flylock Switchblade nearly 100.
I took this photo yesterday but forgot to post it...DUHHH!
The Shield is my primary for CC. The Radom in my avatar sometimes relieves it of duty for awhile...sometimes a long while. Im carrying the Radom to work lately, but when I run outside in gym shorts at night bringing out garbage, etc, shield is what I carry. I also carry it in social situations where I need to be especially discreet., and dont even want to wear a holster. The belt clip is great, it really is. Draw is fast. The safety has only come off one time in the four years Ive had this gun, and that was in the first few weeks after I installed the clip. Now I check it habitually without thinking, like when I round a corner in a public place and know Im finally alone, or in a bathroom, getting out of car, etc. It helps me to stay alert and I like it. It just never came off due to any activity again, and I havemt had to restrict mysel in any way that handicaps me.
. Ive also made it a reflex to flick the safety off on drawing, and dont have to tbink about it anymore. Its a very light stroke required and I tend to put more into it than I have to...which is still not taxing. I dont mean to overexplain myself here, but many people are divded on safeties for this type of gun.
Anyhoo, I recently bought this Gerber folding tanto made of 164cm steel to replace my other Gerber that I had for 18 years but lost last year. I searched feverishly for a knife made of a better Amercian steel for a good price. This was about $40, and no other knife made of 164cm that size came close . I have to admit its a litt,e tediius to sharpen but holds an edge well. It will cut aluminum better than paper! Its just the type of texture it is. We just got a new knife sharpener at work which does a good job on it but took the finish off in some places.Whatever, its a "working knife" not a status symbol ...and it works well. Note that knife and Shield bkth have belt clips. Just the way it happened. I fine tune it after running it across the grindstone with a telescoping pocket diamond studded steel.
No, it’s a Planet Ocean with the 8900 movement.
Yeah they’re all pretty great but the Hamilton certain gets the most use.
Nice gun and knife combo! Like you there's something about the Tanto blade design that I just like!
A couple of nice match-ups, especially the Luger and the Flylock knife!
A couple more Tantos, sans handguns:
Dang, those are really sweet tantos!I was kind of railroaded by availability in ending up with mine, but I still like it alot BECAISE it's a tanto. Its cool being different, as long as it works and works well. might also opt for a tanto in a fixed blade eventually. I really like the one in the bottom photo
Nice P07 too. I love CZ's in general, but I'd probably go for a P01 given my druthers. I really prefer a rounded trigger guard.
Okay just add this P01 to the photo of the Al Mar Tanto and you'll be all set!
Ruger Mark IV Hunter .22 lr. & KA-BAR.
I think I might be first pistol bayonet so far.....
30 shots and a pointy end
Would have made a third, but the rail is to short......
Aye matey that ye be!
Can't help but think about the Elgin Cutlass Pistol every time I see that bayonet affixed to a pistol. Typically my next thought is to shout: "Prepare to repel boarders" or some such salty nautical command!
German WW2 P38 Spreewerk with K98 bayonet
So, silverware to go with the Tupperware, makes sense.
