My Uncle Willy bought a new hearing aid.

Uncle Willy ranted and raved about how he could hear so clearly again. I asked him, "What kind is it?' He replied, "About a quarter of four." :roll:

Re: New user checking in

Welcome to the home of many and varied tastes. This is the home of both show knives as well as "working" automatics. You can learn a great deal by asking questions.

Enjoy your stay.

Re: Chinese "knockoff" automatic Knives?

I honestly have NO idea, why anyone would go through all that mess with cheap counterfeits when the genuine Leverletto is so well made and at a more than reasonable price. https://i.imgur.com/rRheICp.jpg The Leverletto is useful! There really isn't any reason for it not to ride in a hip sheath. Sna...

I have a copyrighted image. If it is pirated, I tend to seek legal redress. I'm "funny" that way. Honesty and integrity are downright cheap, if not free.

There's no excuse for copyright infringement.

Re: Chinese "knockoff" automatic Knives?

These are fine "beater" knives and take a quick edge. Mine came with Bayonet blades and the larger (9.44") knife opens at a lazy pace. The shorter knife opens quickly and is kind of neat. The "Leverletto" etched on the smaller knife angered me. Screwing Bill always irritates me no end.
