Re: Is the KaBar USN Mark 1 Deck Knife (#2221) a better buy?

The MK1 pattern & Western L71 "Seabee" are indeed nice outdoor knifes. When I hike I usually have my WW2 Camillus MK1 with me.

Info Request: Large Switchblade

I picked this up yesterday. It is ~17 1/4" long with lined bolsters, the scales appear to be walnut, and the mainspring is polished. The bolsters are quite strong, squeezing across the ears as hard as I am able does not deflect them at all. The blade is ~3/16" across the spine and the lock-up is tig...

Re: LL80 gravity knife question

Great thread to bring back to the top. I just bought an WMF version and await its arrival. The WMF logo really bugged me as I knew I'd seen it before.
