  Becker Kabar 62
Posted by: Grizzly Dave - 01-31-2019, 12:38 AM - Forum: Knives and Assorted Weapons - Replies (26)

Has anyone handled the new Kabar model 62 a copy of an original Kephart knife? 
Made in collaboration with Ethan Becker from an original Colchester Bros. knife he was able to locate.
I have the Condor model of the Kephart but the Kabar 62 looks better and has a pretty sturdy leather sheath

  ST-1 stabby thing self-defense tool
Posted by: Stormcrow - 01-24-2019, 05:04 AM - Forum: Knives and Assorted Weapons - Replies (4)

On the mid-tech side of things, I came up with a self-defense tool that debuted at Blade Show this summer:  the ST-1.  They're waterjet cut from 1/4" 4140, ground and heat treated, with a Cerakote ceramic gun coating, with Boltaron sheaths.

There's no blade, but the tip is quite pointy and beveled.

A closer look at the tip prior to heat treatment and Cerakote.

As Tobin demonstrates, they can even be quad-wielded.  Big Grin

I, like Bill think that only accurate rifles are of interest. 

DS - Me too

I think you will like the 6.5 Creedmore and would appreciate your views after shooting one. 


DS - I haven't shot one yet, but I'm keen to try Shy

I was banished years ago for being an asshole.  Now that I am back, I hope to be an asset, not a liability.

  Long term cost of ownership on a high quality folding knife
Posted by: Stitch - 01-14-2019, 02:29 AM - Forum: Knives and Assorted Weapons - Replies (3)

2001, I had to go do an inspection on a satellite unit in San Diego.  I felt naked as I only had a Swiss Army knife in my pocket.  I went to a knife shop in La Jolla afterhours and saw a folding, liner lock, knife, that I bought on an impulse.  It was a Microtech/Lightfoot collaboration.  The LCC.  A custom quality knife at an expensive production price, $240.00.  If, you divide the cost of ownership over 18 years, it comes out to $13.33 a year.[Image: zCqzF0B.jpg]

  Surefire Echo Knife
Posted by: Stitch - 01-14-2019, 01:44 AM - Forum: Knives and Assorted Weapons - Replies (3)

The older I get, the smaller, lighter and thinner my knives get.  My EDC fixed blade is a Surefire Echo.  It came with an injection molded sheath that I think is pretty cheesy.  I found a leather sheath that fits it perfectly, made by an unknown maker, at a local shop for $10.00.  I found the knife at an antique store for $100.00.
