Suddenly I realized I was one knife short!

Coming from Milwaukee I went to school with all nationalities. Of course, there were mostly German and Polish. At 55th Street School we had black students. And of course, I proudly carried Sicilian switchblades. No one could call me a racist.

Then I thought about it. What happens if jihadist takes over the mall where I have coffee? I got nothing in that genre' and it started to bother me.

I'm supposed to be a professional, and I don't have one correct knife for fighting a religious constituency of one billion people! I needed something that said "America."

Well, I filled that slot. Yeah, it's black, technically a black Buck 110, right down to the blade alloy. This one however is assisted opening, and it polished easily and is fairly sharp being built on a hunting platform.

BTW, it was almost impossible to photograph.

The moment I hear those chilling threats of "Admiral Ackbar," out this baby comes.

Did you know that a Kalashnikov, which is usually reliable, does not work if all of your wrist tendons are severed?

If you can get a copy of latest knife magazine, you'll see just how deep a polished bevel will cut when the writers introduce "Porkman."

You could sell a boatload of those Chico-polished Eagle knives.

BTW, had lunch with my retired Engineer buddy today. He said the first thing he did with his Chico Barge was run it up his forearm, and sure enough, it shaved it clean.

That always scares me.

Sometimes a new owner shaves down his arm, and seconds later little red dots appear on the bare spots.

The Japanese discipline differs from an oil whetstone.
