Re: Origin of the Kris switchblade

The 9" Kris blade (as in this one):

<img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v675/ ... ufegeq.jpg" alt="Image"/>

Has a certain deadly cache' that appeals to me. I would like to have someone build me a modern 5mm Picklock back spring/blade Brazilain horn version.

Re: New Kershaw Launch 8 (Stiletto made in USA).

I have a Launch 2 which doesn't exhibit this difficulty. For a bit of poetic fun, I am going to nickname my Kershaw Launch 8 "my little apple peeler". :roll: :wink:

Re: Hattori 983 Ultra Dagger

That is so impressive! I like that a lot. May I be so bold as to ask the tariff on that particular piece? (I understand that when it was available it ran about $800.00).

I wouldn't want it in my pocket without a sheath, especially with serrations on it.
Probably not. A sheath that can be clipped inside the jacket pocket may be what's in order.

Re: I have been considering this little gem for travel.

Thanks, Ian. I have been wondering if it wouldn't be better to drill a couple of holes in the end of the handle and attach a pocket clip to this dagger. If I did this I could slide it into one of my sports jacket inside pocket. (This would minimize bulge and make it available at a moment's notice. T...

Re: I saw these and liked the looks.

I have one of the smaller ones with the darker handle. It functions well and is easy to carry. My only complaint is that the lever doesn’t lay completely flat because of the rounded handle and bolster. Other than that, it’s a good looking knife. That is good news. This will likely be money well spe...

Re: Just booked a five-night Hotel stay In Tijuana.

Since I don't drink, I'll be spending my time in the Tijuana Wax Museum, Tijuana Cultural Center and at Playa de Tijuana (Tijuana Beach). Food, shopping, and good, clean fun will be my primary focus for five solid days.
