PS: Thanks for the tip!
Yeah, I was being factious.....about the intel part of course. I thought they came with instrux for using a hunk of galvanized as a handle. BTW the elbow is my idea so it doesn't fly outta your hand whilst hatchetting with it.

I bought mine 40+ years ago and cannot recall whether it came in a box or with instructions. Good suggestion on the elbow, galvanized could get slippery if wet......or bloody!

The skachet on Ebay is up to $51.00 with less than five hours to go.



I am not bidding.

The comment about its weight refreshed my memory.
I gave it away.
No regrets.

Thanks, but a knife is just a tool, I just got lucky and found one of my grail knives at close to table price....

Emerson CQC 7

Emerson CQC7- . I've got that same knife in the auto version. When I got married in 97 I bought 4 of them 1- for me and 1 for each of my groomsmen. They thought that beat the hell out of a pen and pencil set or a set of cuff links.

That is a fine looking Randall. I guess you have your reasons for selling it.

I think one is supposed to stir the urine with it, you know, before you drink it.

I have actually NOT bought any of those other wise nice pieces because of that ridiculous celeb wannabee guys name on them.

Cry Sad to see.....

It has been sad to watch Gerber deteriorate, they made some nice stuff 'back in the day'. For a while you could separate the better stuff from the 'international' line, now it is harder to tell and the US made stuff isn't nearly the quality they once had. In recent years, I have continued to try and support US products from Gerber. I got an 06 automatic (US made) a couple of years ago: If you fully tighten the screw near the pivot, it doesn't open. A longer spacer (just a few thousandths) would fix it but I would have to deal with all the rules on shipping auto knives so I just used locktite and left it 1/6th turn from tight, so far so good. I liked the lines and heritage of the LHR (US made) and found one at a good price: the bevel was not consistantly angled, either on one side or between sides, looked hand done on someones' first day. Knowing that I lacked the skill to do (much) better, I spent most of two hours straightening it out with my old Lansky. I was too late to get a deal (sensing a pattern here, I am old and have a fixed income) on a Yaris (US made) drop point, apparently no one important at Gerber has realized that tanto points (and most serations) are not the best thing since sliced bread (now you can see how old I am, most people don't recall 'pre-sliced bread' days). I was able to get a tanto at a pretty reasonable price and am working at 'converting' it to drop point. I loved the old Gerber stuff, still have my "Pixie" from '72 and MkII from the same era and US made, I know that any quality level desired can be made in China but I don't see many companies going for anything besides 'cheap' when the go offshore for manufacturing, unfortunately, at the same time, I am not seeing where 'Made in USA' is any guarantee of high quality. Most US manufacturing is struggling to stay afloat, I can't save them but where possible...I will try to help where I can but I won't be buying stuff that I don't like or want (can't include need, don't really need much anymore) just to help. That means tantos and most serated blades need not apply.
