    jzmtl ... if this ain't a Minimag (which I am pretty sure it isn't) ... then the "knife" is more like a little sword

    What does one do with a knife this big, except being able to say "mine is bigger than yours" Ó la Crocodile Dundee?

    There is a type of perfection that transcends the quest for lumens. Buying a $250 1-cell light for "lum factor" is like buying a $250 single malt Scotch for the alcohol content.

    Yeah that's about it. The knife is this, pretty useless for urban dwellers like me, but I like to have a fixed blade of some sort (that's not the same size as a folder). I keep it in the dresser next to my bed, well just in case.

    I recall Steven Seagal used one of those in a nasty looking knife fight sequence in Under Siege 2: Dark Territory (1995).

    I guess you'd better have the right DVD though:

    "The US Region 1 DVD, amongst others, restores the violence/knife play missing from the UK edition, but it is rumoured there is still some footage that apparently is missing due to MPAA interference."

    LOL I helped sort and pack off a few thousand of 'em to an auction house a few months ago. Lots of War of Independence pistols, rifles, buttons, etc. You may remember that one- we won.

    You are a brave soul to keep a light that expensive in your car. I'd never put anything more than a fenix in mine. In fact my car combo is a P3D and a Ka Bar strapped right next to driver's seat.

    I felt obligated to come up with a title from something
    My car EDC are all LED as I'm not willing to be in a situation where a blown lamp can occur. and I don't carry a knife on it...I have an aluminum bat for car duty plus I'm a tennis player theres always a racket or two on the passenger side

    no one seems inclined to break into my car...and the ones who do steals the oddities

    door unlocked :fuzzy dice stolen
    windows down: my sunglasses
    both an unlocked door and both rolled down windows: all the change I had in the storage compartment [about $10 in dimes/nickels and a $10 roll of quarters], an inova X5, and my jumper cables

    96 White Nissan Quest with two elementary principal awards on it...Its a family car thats currently serving the duty of dad's truck

    How do you like your Kershaw Outcast? Is it really a good chopper? I almost bought one...

    I bought it originallyfor the design, a "looker" rather a "user." yesterday I tried it out on some low palms and the results are better than my old but hardy machete I bought some years ago from Homedepot...aside from the rust and the wooden handle held in by nylon cords, its a pretty good trail blazer.

    likes: Balanced, Topheavy but not enough to numb the wrist after a bit of chopping or cutting. [some bowies I've tried has the feeling of "too big of a head, too small of a grip" feeling], [hopefully] doesn't rust, and personally just look better than something like these sold in trail/camping stores

    I found one with an light colored wood handle and a non-serrated ~15" blade in Walmart for $8...almost bought it before the "you get what you pay for" feeling popped out and I placed the blister packed blade back on its peg

    dislikes: the knifes made for bigger hands. the depression made for the forefinger I can fit two fingers in. the rubber handle makes your hands sweat in very little time...I didn't notice this when using a wooden handle.
    the sheath is anything but portable or egromonically sound [at least to me] its two heavy sheets of kydex held together by rivets and designed to be clipped to a belt, but it rides a bit high and [for me anyway] requires two hands to draw without pulling my pants way up. I think it would be better suited to be strapped horizontally to the waist and deployed from the rear and right [or leftif your left handed] from the torso.

    I bought mine after reading this review: http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/...ad.php?t=88403
    its kinda odd this guy used it on a tree trunk. I'd use a hatchet for that purpose.
    the review also provides a pic of the holster...but mine didn't come with the locking leather doohickey on top...the sheath grips the knife handle pretty snug so I don't think it needs it

    I'll post one in comparison with a light or something to show the size of it if needed

    Here's an old school group, a fat 4D Mag-Lite, a Gerber Magnum Hunter, and a Smith&Wesson N Frame 625.




    This group should be self explanatory. A Fenix L1Tv2, a Spyderco Endura (ATS-55), and a Colt Officers 45 ACP.

    I'm rediscovering the charm of SAK's. This is my favourate model, the compact. It's got pretty much everything you use on daily basis. Knife, scissor, bottle/can opener, corkscrew, tweezer, pen, and a few others, all in two layers.

    As for me, my cameraphone is "less than great."

    I e-mailed a few pics to myself two days ago. And they got to my inbox a few minutes ago.
