I just received an S&WHRT3 "Boot Knife" in today's mail

Post by Fishtail Picklock » Fri Mar 10, 2017 4:30 am

It is a "factory second" because the blade's "spine" is slightly off center (by about 1/2 of a millimeter). This little dagger is black and has a 3 1/2" blade and a 3 1/2" rubber/neoprene coated handle. I came without a box or papers (for a total of $4.99 drop-shipped from Hong Kong PR of China, I'm not complaining). It has a Kydex sheath and a belt/boot/pocket clip and neck chain. The blade consists of 7Cr17MoV "High Carbon" stainless steel. The darned thing takes a scary sharp edge. (Wiping off the blade on my naked left forearm gently sliced it in three places). :shock: (I know how to use my Spyderco Tri-angle "Sharpmaker"). This is such a neat little piece of steel. I like it a lot! :mrgreen: 8)

If you are looking for an inexpensive little personal protection dagger, go onto Amazon.com and look around. If you look hard enough, you'll find what normally costs $16.95 for $4.99 (including shipping). :wink: You can hide this on your belt, inside your shirt or in your boot. For the price of a "high end" cup of java from Starbucks, you can have a decent little "backup knife".

What's not to like?

Ger that blade looks like the French Chassepot bayonet blade on that Hirschfanger. Not made by Weyersburg is it?

Possibly, if Weyersburg is in China.

BINGO! The Taylor Brand Knives (Schrade, Smith & Wesson) are all made in China.

At least a "wingnut" has a purpose. OTOH, a dildo, well, there is that.
