I think video production would be less costlier than being published in a book. DVD and digital download can be easier to promote and be marketed at various venues. People really need to see the talents, labors and masterpieces that makes our hobby so cherishable and desireable. Maybe then, the stigma of the "evil" Switchblade can be put to rest. After all, If marijuana can be made legal and recreational, why not switchblades...


maybe they should do some build off's like the biker build off's on the discovery channel ???

A "Build-Off" is an excellent idea 8)

A Build-Off! Definitely. The ground work for that can be started right here. Open to all, even our production makers.

Very true. The famous Bradbury Building In downtown Los Angeles is the home of the LAPD Internal Affairs Division. Lots of cops going in and out of the place. Until it moved right next door, Ross Cutlery was also a tenant, and they had and have a wide variety of automatic knives. They are also not hard to find in San Francisco of all places.

So many people think that automatic knives are "evil" and live in a "fantasy land". Controls do nothing but disarm a populace.

It is a fundamental concept that the "sheeple" can't comprehend.

It's true that a lot of states are making switch blades legal,even Tennessee did it recently and bowies are still illegal.
Now if the fed would just lift the interstate shipping and transportation ban things would really shape up for knife fans. :)

the Feds don't think. They're on "auto pilot" for the most part. (Look at the 'Bern' and 'Hilldog'). :roll:

My guy at the gun shop I frequent told me none of his distributors carry them. My guess is the interstate transfer laws but I could be wrong. Still they aren't that hard to get when you know where to look, as most of us here do! I can open up a folder quicker than I can a switchblade, must be the forbidden fruit thing I guess.

People have been brainwashed for almost 58 years now. The "Rebel Without A Cause" has become "Rebel Without A Clue". Sweet Mary Joseph and the Shepherds have been led astray so far that they can't figure out why the laws exist. "They're illegal, that's why"! Damned "sheeple"!

Idiots.
