Re: Magazine Article

"The Toy That Kills" was an article in a magazine called "The Ladies Home Companion" in 1950. This was filled with lurid allusions to gang violence in every neighborhood.

Re: New German Gravity Knife Copy

These are probably a good "user" knife of the type. If you're looking for a "collectable" these aren't for you. As a user, they'll probably "fir your pistol" as it were.

Re: I am on a sports jacket buying binge from Men's Wearhouse.

The bankruptcy is a "Chapter 11" move by Men's Wearnouse/Joseph A Bank to reorganize. They're closing the downtown Portland, OR location on August 21st, 2020 and leaving the Hillsboro, OR open. They'll be just fine. Why would they close the Portland store? Reorganization. They need to close stores ...

Re: I just received a Cobratec Boker Plus Scale release knife from Grindworx

I thought about one a couple of months ago because I like hidden release knives....But like often happens when I think for a second, I realize I don't need another knife. Yep, I know that statement is blasphemy to most of you.... I carry it quite a bit (even ...

Re: I have a new ACE EVO Extreme by AKC.

I just used some blue Loctite on the left hex-head screw on the quillon scale. This should stop the screw from backing out and getting lost. This is the only complaint/reservation have about the knife.

I am "good to go". 8) :mrgreen:

Re: I just received a Cobratec Boker Plus Scale release knife from Grindworx

The upper 1/8th of the scale is what locks/unlocks the blade. The lower scale is what releases the blade on the others. No patent infringement here.

Re: My "grail" knife will soon be a realty!

I went to Ted Blocker holster maker(s) in Tigard, Oregon. (They were the designer of the original Miami Vice "Lifeline" cross-draw holster). Taking the new Fishtail Picklock to them I explained how father had made his own friction capturing black pouch/sheath. They are making me a duplicate of his o...

Re: Can anyone recommend a good kitchen knife?

The Ontario ("Old Hickory") line is both excellent and affordable. Look up the entire line on Amazon and buy a few. Keep them clean, dry, lightly oiled, and sharp. Trust me, you'll be a happy camper.
