It's here, not signed, that one went to another guy for ALOT more. At least I can use this one.

Ouch-
Compressed "free air" rapidly injected as a bolus into a chest/abdominal wall would be stop-in-your-tracks painful, and likey fatal (if not initially, would very likely induce secondary infection).

It's for a good cause, so I'd appreciate it if the mods left it alone...

This new Hoodlum is incredible. It is light, way lighter than i expected, but cuts and chops like a knife twice it's size, and weight. It is also very fast and easy to control. I would not want to be on the wrong end of this knife with someone who knows what they are doing on the other, even if I had a full size sword. It is easy to use even for common daily camp stuff too. So far I am super impressed. I might get another one for my 21yo son who loves blades.

BTW I stuck a multi tool in the pouch, and am going to stick a nice folder in a off board pouch and Mole it to the sheath. VERY functional as a ZK (Zombie Killer) as well as a every day brush and chopper/survival camp knife. So afr the best one I have ever seen.....for under 500 clams.

A shame you lost out on the signed one, but I prefer a user! My Emerson signed folder just sits in the back of my safe.

it was either pay over 400 for the signed one and keep it in the safe, or get this one from a guy I know who works for Buck for $130.00 and use it. I chose the later option! I have enough stuff in my safe I hesitate to use because it is NEW IN BOX from years ago, like my 1980 Buck 105, Pathfinder, and a couple NIB slip joints.

I like it. I love the spear point. Nice usable blade design.

I'm partial to the spearpoint, with only one edge sharpened. Wharny (SP???) is nice too.

I love the spearpoint,Clip, Warncliff, and drop point. But the Tanto is just not good for much other than stabbing.

Here's my resident pocket knife:
Benchmade Osborne 940



I don't collect (except for a bayonet to go with my Garand) but use. This is the nicest pocket knife I've had. Most expensive as well. I guess this is one case where you get what you pay for.

FOr sure, 85 dollars for a knife that most companies would charge 130 or more for. I got it next dayed for a total of about 100 bucks since today is Thursday already, and I hate ordering stuff late in a week and it gets lost in transit over the friggin weekend. They were going to three day it free with a coupon, but I upgraded to next day for under 20 bucks.
