I've been on the waiting list for a year now.

What's that brand that has some ridiculous waiting list of several years? It's a small operation, unknown to most people.

That would describe most custom makers that I'm aware of.

I still have a knife I bought when I was 10 or 11 years old. I remember it being advertised as a SEAL knife, which it clearly wasn't. However, it is built pretty solid, and has a nice sheath (pics later tonight). The blade is blackish, and has never been sharp. You could run the blade directly across your arm with pressure and nothing would happen. How would I go about finding out if this blade can actually be sharpened (I don't think a standard sharpener will do the trick), or what steel it is made out of?

I would suggest posting in a blade forum with photos of any markings.

Anything can be sharpened. You really do need to find out if this is one of those display kind of knives. You see them all over the place, think junk shop Katana or ninja sword kind of thing. Yeah you could make the blade live but it won't be worth it. They're so cheaply made that if you did sharpen it and then used it you'll probably hurt yourself with it.

It's more or less a knife that you'd carry on your hip if you were camping or hunting, although it's design is something more along the lines of a combat knife.

Yes, that was it.

soldiers usually carry a knife as a tool much more than as a weapon, or often two knives - one you can bang and pry and so on with, the other more of a weapon.

Or an issue bayonet to use as a tentpeg or TP roll holder and a pocket knife you stole from some Engineering Corp sapper. smile.gif

In a day or two we'll have a couple of Sig 226 and 229 Scorpions in the store. My wallet might be in trouble. I took out a Colt New Agent and ran a few rounds through it. It's got a gutter rail site system and I was rather pleased in how fast and accurate this system can be once you get used to it. The only thing is it wasn't designed with tritium inserts like what you can get on a NAA semi auto.

Great looking gun, I miss my sig.
post #2338 of 3147

Huh? We appreciate knives now?!

 

 

 

No, I don't carry this every day. 

post #2339 of 3147

We always appreciated knives.  Only now we broke our silence  .  .  .

Well one of our Sig customers is letting go of his Inox Beretta 92FS with 3 spare high cap mags. It's going to be my new gun whenever he gets around to visiting us.
