What's heavier than lead, cheaper than dirt, looks like it was built by NASA and is more dangerous than a redhead with a new stiletto?
No, not Nancy Pelosi, she weighs about a buck ten.
It's just my new Schrade folder. This is the knife I've been looking for all my life, in fact, I bought two. Let me tell you about it.
While it's all stainless steel, some parts are supposedly plated with titanium. The blade swings open like it's on greased rails.
This is amazing for a assembly line knife. Obviously Rob Babcock polished it, because I didn't. Looks like he did it, everything is lined up, dead straight and "dragon proof."
Heavy? I have lots of hard cover books, and the knife is right in there for ballast.
Now, why would I want this knife? Well, you might find this odd coming from a gun forum, but I'm more dangerous with a knife than a firearm. I've played with knives since 1958, and they are the only things I was actually taught to use.
(Three local cops taught me to shoot, more "plinking" than "IPSC.")
I am well acquainted with the Tueller Drill, but in reality a physical confrontation is at arm's length. Even Massad Ayoob stated that a knife would be a good "fending weapon" to throw the attacker off guard, and back him up while you're drawing.
Ayoob also recommended learn knife moves from a martial art form called "Eskrima," a Filipino derivative of stick fighting. In fact, Ayoob also stated that coroners looking at an Eskima knife wound would state that the hole was done by a 12 gauge slug.
One final thing. These knives are cheap, and I know where they are. But there isn't going to be a "Schrade Raid I." First off, it doesn't need sharpening. Second, I have got to retire...LOL
