    Years ago I was riding with a group of "bikers" to go camping. A friend was driving my Van with the camping gear. I had a bayonet rolled inside my sleeping bag, cops stopped us and searched everything, found the bayonet & just took it. No arrest, just stole it for a trophy I guess.

    Confiscated goods not used as evidence are stolen. Report to a higher agency. (City>County>State>Fed)

    If you had no reason to suspect they'd trump-up other charges, that is!:deal

    I think it was East of Dallas around one of the lakes there.
    It was back in the early 70', they arrested one of the guys
    for bootlegging because we had all our beer in his car, so it
    was more than one case per person or some such shit.

    My well-used Sebenza. Nothing fancy, but it has served me well for the past dozen years or so.

    Tex,
    Not much turns my head these days.
    And you lie about the nothing fancy.

    I never saw a Sebenza or knew about them. It'a really a tool, stark and beautiful and stinks of function.

    I had to pull out my Protech Baby Brend and hold it for reassurance.
    I carry it in my good pants.

    My work knife is a Fallkniven U2. It's an excellent folder and tough.
    Both the Protech Brend and the Fallkniven U2 have nice blade shapes.

    Your darned Sebenza falls right in the middle.
    It is a knife for every occasion.
    Thanks,
    bill

    A tanto I'm working on, of home-made Japanese style steel, with hamon - just got it back from my polisher. Now to do the fittings and find a way to photograph the whole thing in a way that shows it's beauty.

    I encountered an issue with my heat-treat, and I'm testing a couple techniques. While trying to clean the shop, tie down the new hammer, re-line my main forge, and attend to work and family.

    Not as nice as many of the other knives in here but, here are two of my favorites. The Spyderco Ladybug for a daily, pocket carry, and a Spyderco Native for anything the Ladybug can't handle.

    I sure like my Native (in SS)-here it is next to the Poliwog that's also in the rotation:

    Sebenzas are good.

    The Umfaan is gooder, much smaller and rare.

    That's a cool idea. I have pitched several SAK's over the years when the plastic crapped.

    That's a very cool idea, indeed! I may have to do some searching.

    The Steiner military marines in the corner were not missed!

    Want to trade that Seb for my Brend and a little cash?

    1/8" wood strips, scroll saw to cut the blanks, and sanding to fit, dremel for the pockets to accept the pins on the knife, epoxy in the pin holes.

    It takes me more than an hr to do each one, cuz I cannot get the blanks sized right and they always require hand fitting.

    I have a SAK Huntsman that I got when I was 12 and edc'd hard for many years. It has been semi-retired for the past ten or so. A project like this might be a fun way to tart it up a bit.
