    Don't have one, got to fart around with a buddy's about three days ago, quite a chunk of steel, titanium and G-10. FC, If this knife can't do what a fixed blade can do there isn't a folder that can! I personally would like an SNG, you have one don't you? What do ya think of it?

    SnG is great for EDC, but not strong enough for my purposes. It will not handle strong lateral "prying" force. Also tanto blade works better for rippin' s&*t up.

    I agree, and the GB could easily do some serious "demo" duty on your standard wood frame structure (and possibly some steel clad doors too)! After checking out my buddy's I can tell you I would'nt be afraid of using it for that either!

    Crap, now I think between the two of us we've talked ME, into saving for a GB! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ooo.gif[/img] If knives are a primary tool, this knife is SCARY PRIMARY!!



    I hope you enjoy yours, and it NEVER has to pull your fanny out of the fryer!

    I love the striders (but they just don't make one big enof for me) I like my cuda max 5.5, but "wow" if strider made a 5.5 inch blade folder I would be there.

    Talk to Mick, you may be able to order a custom one. It'll cost you...

    Let me put it in perspective for you outlaw (the pictures don't do it justice). The blade on the GB is 3/16" thick and the liners are a full 1/8 in thick titanium. while the blade is not too long it is nearly 2" in width and the knife including the G-10 scales is about 11/16" thick overall. The Pivot screw looks to be around the size of a 1/4-20. So I think you could probably shove this knife between the liners of your average frame build knife and with a 11/16" open end wrench for torque pop them apart like Lego's. On top of this the knife still weighs close to nothing for it's size (titanium really is a "wonder" metal) but man, in all seriousness, I have used restorer's prybars (short, drop forged, steel bars that are wide and flat on one end and have a nail puller on the other) that are less ruggedly built!

    I handled one GB two weekends ago and was very impressed. They seem to be large when reading about peoples' descriptions and they are large - nevertheless they balance nice in your palm, feel very light, comfortable and make you want to use them. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] These are very impressive tools.
    Here is what I found on my HD:

    I think I'd like the SnG the best out of those....my hands aren't incredibly big but I like the fit of those of their folders. I just recently acquired a Mick Strider custom SLCC but am selling it (if anyone is interested).

    FC,

    I read that you got the GB already. Any pics? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] It was the TAC AR I was able to try out. The finish is quite nice. I would like to know though how it holds up while being abused. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thinking.gif[/img]

    K-T. The knife on the right in the last photo. Where can I find that?
    Another ? OT: I will be in Germany in one month. What is a legal folder in your country?

    The folders in the last picture are the "tactial Strider folders", they were a special run realized by tadgear.com and Strider. The one on the right is the TAC AR Strider, the tando version is called TAC GB. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] You might be albe to get one but on the other hand Striders sell fast from TAD-Gear so they might be sold out. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/icon3.gif[/img]

    On your question about the German law, that's a rather tricky one as it has changed recently and I am not that familiar with the new regulations - except for the fact that things have gotten more strict. Do not try to bring any Auto, some are allowed but it would take some time to explain which ones. Other than that pretty any blade length is allowed as far as I know. Tell me what you would like to bring with you and I might be able to comment on it. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    edit: just checked. they seem to be sold out. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

    How is the length of the SnG compared to the length of a Small and Large Sebenza? I'm getting ready to purchase a small plain sebenza and I'm hoping this is the right choice [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    The TAC ARs have been sold out for a long,long time. Good luck finding one. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/jpshakehead.gif[/img]

    K-T, I'll take some pics and put em up as soon as I can, 2-3days.

    lol...the SnG is another bill....I don't think I can handle that. I've handled the seb's in person and I love the things.

    Thanks T-K. I would like to bring my Benchmade 942. The blade is under 4 inches.
    BTW, the TAC AR looks real nice to me.
