Went to an Army surplus store a couple weeks back and was able to pick up this bayonet for $20. Decently sharp, and looked quality enough to be a good blade to take with me on my rides. The belt loop is nice to have while on foot, and I could think of a few uses to use the wire cutter part of it for.




And for my birthday, my girlfriend gave me a nice monogramed folding knife.

Communist Block AK 47 bayonet. The wire cutter is pretty cool. Decent sheath, too.

Those things are a great buy, IMO.

My Leatherman, a long-ago Christmas present:


One of the many LEO/tactical gifts from my godfather (note the seatbelt cutter):


Sorry for the terrible photos; my camera isn't the greatest. The numbers along the blade read "88442496" -- means "from 8844 (godfather's former badge #) to 496 (my former badge #)."
