    Somehow the image of EvilGenius riding down the road on his motorcycle, Saber raised overhead in some sort of post apocalyptical cavalry charge, scares me...:huh


    (and my odometer number, 666, makes it even scarier)

    While I didn't make it, and don't recommend heavy use of what appears to be a stainless steel blade, I was able to, after reconditioning, hack through a 2x4 with relative ease using gentle sweeping blows (not perpendicular). I have no doubt at all it would take off an arm if used in anger.

    I have that exact knife, it's been residing in my desk drawer in my office for about 25 years, perhaps longer, and I can't even recall where or how I got it, but believe it was given to me back in the 80s. I use it to open packages/mail mostly.

    Here's one from Bark River called the City Knife. The wallet/sheath holds an ID, credit/debit card, and a little cash. I carry this one daily, it fits nicely in a back pocked and comes in handy from time-to-time.

    Honestly most officers are far more reasonable they they often get credit for, despite some bad apples. Of the very small number of interactions I have had with them while I was in possession of a knife or firearm none of them have been tense or problematic. Last time I was rear ended by another car I had a J-Frame revolver in a small of the back holster. When the local officer asked for my id I informed him I had my pistol in the back of my belt near my wallet with my permit. His only reply was "If you do not pull yours I will not pull mine". A few minutes and a bit of paperwork later everyone was on their way with no drama.

    Unless you live in some Police State location like California just giving the officer a heads up about what you have on your person that could be considered a weapon will go a long way to making it a smooth and uneventful interaction.

    I've narrowed it down to 'earth'. Or 'Baltimore'.
    I might have to get me one of them.

    Swung by and talked to the guy (good guy) that's doing the framing.

    He said that there was a couple of funeral arrangement flower boxes (dried flowers) ahead of us that were really delicate and hard to work with, so that's why it's taken so long.

    Fortunately the saber is the next thing in line to be done and showed us the box it's being mounted in. Looks fantastic.

    He's had essentially all he can take of that job, but he was so excited about mounting the sabre (flowers and pictures are all he's used to working with) that he wanted to stay long enough to make sure that he at least got that done.

    I carry this one once in a while. Becker Necker in a little pocket sheath I made for it.

    I like the way you think, a couple of times a year i stop by Ethan Becker's house, i like to dual sport ride on the trails near his place, last time i stopped by he gave me one of those Becker Necker's and i wrapped the handle in para cord.
    Ethan is a real good guy, his wife is cool too, they live on the river about 30 miles from me.

    Sweet

    Looks like the stitching could be done better.
    How do you like the blade?

    Pretty cool that you know Ethan Becker and his wife! The man knows a thing or two about knives. His knives work and last. The little BK11 is a great, fixed blade pocket knife, for sure. I'd like to make a set of scales for it.
