I still have my original SAK I got when I was in the Army about 30 years ago. I have lost it and found it again at least ten times over the years but have always found it. Last time it diss disappeared was four years before I moved and while I was unpacking my clo0thes after moving, it fell out of a pocket of a suit jacket I hadn't worn in a few years that I NEVER put anything in the pockets of. I also found my original CQC7 in a pair of boots that had been missing a couple years before I moved as well.

I admit I haven't read the last part of this so excuse me if it's been brought up...

Does anyone have opinions on the Microtech brand? I love the Out-The-Front double actions.

A knife baton. It's like something out of a comic book.

The story behind it is supposed to be it is designed to create the hardest wound shape to fix in the filed. Thereby making the stuckee bleed out super quick. Oh, and I THINK the whole thing is titanium.

Edit: The blade is titanium, handle is aluminum I emailed some Colorado retailers on pricing. I'll let you know how many arms and legs they cost

They make an all stainless one for $750.00, I believe the Ti one is now about $1400.00.

You either need to move more or less often
