This Is Why I Can’t Save Money August 3, 2012

I’m always finding shiny new things to spend it on. This isn’t even fair:

Yeah, that’s over 500 bucks for a Buck knife. It’s the paua shell scales on the handle that packs on the price. Maybe for Christmas.  You can build your own Buck knife if you like: Build A Buck.

Knife Bling!

Knife Bling!

Knife. Bling. The skull is sterling silver folks. Want we very much.

Clicky da picky to go to Emerson Knives which is a new premium knife place I just learned about. Looks like their prices are generally on par with Benchmade. That there knife clip goes for $180 and I’m sure it’s compatible with my Benchmade knives. The basic design of the clip is almost exactly the same and Benchmade clips use the same three screw attachment arrangement. Oh yes. I will have one of these.

Oh, and do scroll down folks. Lots more to see. Also, they have beads Aggie. >:-)

Dammit. While researching the materials that Emerson Knives use in their products (which are generally the same quality as Benchmade) I discovered that Benchmade issued a special fantastic1 limited edition 940-1101. Hit the next link to the distributor and they’re selling it for 75 bucks off!!!! I pulled the trigger on that deal without any hesitation. This is an awesome knife. This is an awesome deal If you’re in the market for a top of the line EDC knife this is the time to pull the trigger. Do it now.+6

Ah, I See You’ve Played Knifey-Spooney Before… March 31, 2011

After I got all my stuff together for my Shit Hit The Fan bag I noticed that I was still lacking a certain thing – a knife. Certainly I have many, many knives as well as carry a nice Benchmade pretty much all the time, but almost all my knives are folding blade types. For this I need a really good and durable fixed blade knife. So, to the internets!

I searched for survivor knives and that came back with a ton of suggestions and I looked at a bunch of them. A Ka-bar knife was an early front runner. I laughed at some of the ridiculous Rambo stuff – yeah, you can actually buy versions of the ones in the movies. Sure they look impressive on the screen but really you wouldn’t want to trust your life on one of those things. After reading a lot of reviews I finally settled on a SOG Seal Pup from Amazon.com.  Check it out:

It’s a good size and very sturdy. I was and am very impressed with this thing. The Seal Pup is actually a smaller version of the original Seal. After a few days with this thing I just couldn’t help myself and had to go full-frontal Seal, so I did.  Look at this thing – it is a beast!

I love them both and Amazon’s prices really can’t be beat, particularly if you’re in the Amazon Prime club. I should take up camping to get practice with this stuff. It’s nice to be well-equipped in the post-econopocalypse world, but it will be better if I’m not Captain Clueless when it comes to actually using these things.

In other news, I’m seriously entertaining notions of purchasing a motorcycle. I have a birthday coming up soon. 🙂

Butterfly…My Butterfly! October 10, 2010

Look at what Lemur King made me buy

This here is the Morpho Bali-Song 51 by Benchmade knives.

Lemur King casually drops a reference to a butterfly knife in his latest story which in turn made me realize that I had a serious hole in my knife collection.  Naturally I had to correct this situation immediately so I dropped by the local knife shop and picked up this little number.  Now I’m trying to learn all those cool flips and twirls without slicing my hands into ribbons.  Actually I taped up the sharp side of the blade so it’s not really all that dangerous to practice with.

*Update*

More knifery.  Since Lemur King asked, yes I do have a tanto.  The blade is just under 11 inches and the whole thing is about 19 inches long.  I bought it when I was about 29 and I thought it looked cool in the catalog.
