    Great story Fred!!

    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.

    You guys are a bad influence on me! Showing off all your one handed knives got me to looking at them online. Here is the result. Like I need another knife. The three one handers that I have are hard for me to open with the little bit of arthritis I have in my hands, or thumbs I should say. So I went for the push button automatic. Now I have to look into getting a permit for it!

    Wow, that's a heckuva knife, golden, fully automatic!

    The Kershaw assisted opening feature is really nice, smooth and fast. It is absolutely a one hander, and you don't need a permit!

    That's good advice Dean.
    I looked at alot of knives and the Schrade's design really struck my fancy. It appears to be a copy of Bokers Wagner knife for 30.00 less. All the reviews I've seen on the knife were good. It's one of the last ones to sport a safety lock since Benchmade is sueing EVERYBODY over a patent and all the other makers have to remove the safeties, for now. New automatics with the spine safeties are getting harder to find because of the bogus lawsuits. I bought the last one,(in that configuration), that the website had in stock. When the exsisting stock is gone, I think that's it, at least for awhile. As I understand it, the lawsuits have been going on for a few years.

    I'm thinking that I will probably remove the spring from the knife and use it as a stock factory knife until I move back to Wyoming where switchblades are legal. It only cost about 13.00 more to get it with the auto conversion compared to a "buy it now" stock Schrade on ebay.

    Excellent flint napping and shaping of that primative knife. Looks like he used real sinew to attach it to the handle too. Very nice!
    Very nice bone handled caping knife and sheath too!
    You have nice friends!

    Sorry I haven't taken the time to figure out how to post pictures on here yet; but my my everyday carry is the Benchmade Tanto from Ards picture. I had the same large griptillian for a few years and then I lost it somewhere in 11 mile canyon on the South Platte!!! Talk about bummed out. So I carried my CRKT Crawford falcon (3.75 folding liner lock) until I just purchased another griptilian a while back, this time a tanto. I use it several times a day and I have found the tanto shaped blade to be convenient at times.

    I like to have the option of stabbing at my disposal if I were ever to run into a self defense situation; either animal or otherwise. I've got plenty of Jiu Jitsu training for the vicious people, I probably wouldn't need the knife. I don't know any Jiu Jitsu that works on viscious dogs. There is a standard knife defense for defending yourself against dog attacks; place you non-knife hand inbetween your neck and the dog, as the dog approaches be sure that he has access to this arm (your left arm is kindof going to take one for the team here), Feed the dog your non knife hand and give a side stab thrust into the heart area with the other arm. I delivered pizzas all the way through college, so for 5 years I was on the lookout for a mugger or a vicious dog. I have had way too many close calls.

    That's greusome; I hope I never have to do that but I came real close once with a boxer. I was very glad I had a quality piece of steel. Love the Axis Lock!!!!

    I almost forgot; the K-Bar made from D2 tool steel. The ultimate camping/outdoors weapon!! You can hack down a forest full of 4" trees with that thing and not have to sharpen it! What a BEAST!!

    The thought of having to use a knife for self defense makes me cringe.
    I have guns for that purpose. I don't want to get that close or get bit.
    Where I live it is better to do a CCW license than to carry a knife anyway.
    I carry a M-60 S&W .38spl when I fish. Small and light and waterproof.
    Besides, I'm getting too old and broke down for knife fighting anyway...

    I hear that; I always keep the .45 under the pillow at camp, and close at hand everywhere else. CCW, and open carry in OH, Lucky enough in OH to be a free state in that respect at least. Always ready to shoot, stab, claw, etc. whatever the circumstances prescribe. I'm glad to have BENCHMADE and SPRINGFIELD ARMORY .45 at my disposal!!
