@ShotgunX Why will you have more money after the knives arrive? Are you planning on opening some well-sealed bales of money you have lying around and you don’t have any knives yet? Because that or reselling the knives are the least illegal reasons I can think of.
@phendrick I think there is some confusion here (some, but not all, of it mine). The R1802 is the almost foot-long knife I gave the above link for. The R1804 that Meh is selling is the “compact” version, its a little under 5 inches. Both are shown in the Amazon listing, depending on which button you select.
@Troy or whomever. I believe the specs are merged in the Meh descriptions!
I wanted the bigger 'un; but I will let my order stand.
@gwrankin ex-con,ex-boyfriend,ex-communicated…my reputation seems to proceed me.
but…but…but…you love it? If I would have known you were gonna love it, I would have done it a long time ago! (Negative attention is still attention,right?)
But seriously, I sweated over doing that for months and months.
I guess I could learn to love it…sorta like ex-CIA.
@wew Now that you mention it, I’m a lot of ex things too.
I was really sweating over the decision, then I realized that I could charge it to work since many of the purchases are for work anyway.
I may have made the same decision as you otherwise.
I bought this last time. I wanted a decent sized knife with at least partial serrations for breaking down boxes on recycle morning. I don’t pay as much attention as some of you others and missed that it doesn’t have a clip. But I don’t miss it; it’s personally too big at almost 6 inches when opened to be my EDC knife. This one’s for my garage. Very smooth opening/closing. Good blade; I recommend it.
@holmesness I agree with your evaluations. I find the substantial blade and aggressive serrations are excellent, it holds a sharp edge, the grip is good in my average size hands. A bit bulky (square edges) for EDC but my “go to” working in the shop.
My Smith&Wessons (from meh) are good for EDC, open/close easily with one hand, but need more frequent honing to hold a razor edge.
bought these last time they were on sale (July 6th)…VERY nice knives and they are nicely presented in boxes…Would make great gifts. Like @holmesness said above me, maybe a shade too big for EDC for some…but with a GLOCK 26 IWB holster, the knife in my pocket feels tiny, lol…These were the last thing I purchased on MEH that were great…Meh, you suck!..start getting back to great products and great pricing!
@amillar7@nolrak LOL…I didn’t even realize it had an ambi slide stop till you mentioned it…and I’ve been shooting the 26 and my 19g5 (which also has it) for 6 months…can’t be that bad if i never noticed it or it doesn’t interfere with shooting them.
@fastharry I’d be mildly concerned about that getting snagged on the draw — or at the very least, any kydex/polymer holsters will need to be redesigned. I wonder if they offer a replacement single sided slide stop?
I just ordered again. These are really sturdy knives but not what I want to carry every day. I’m putting them in my car glove boxes and getting two more so I can give them to some others. These knives are the best $15 values out there, by far.
@nbrucecaldwell Yes but they’ll be on the higher end of the cost curve. This blade is 8Cr13MoV, a Chinese steel that is actually pretty nice in this market segment. Most U.S. made knives are going to be in the $100+ range (emphasis on that plus). For most people purposes 8Cr13MoV Chinese made knives like this are just fine.
@cdsoder I agree with that. I mentioned the same thing on another knife offering, and got shit for it from the community. My hands are ugly too, would not want to use for modeling. Anyway, meh use someone with more attractive hands for your pics!
What a great knife! Super light, very tough, smooth out of the box. Bill Harsey is a world class designer of knives meant for the hardest use environments on the planet (Harsey designed the world famous “Yarborough” Green Beret knife, awarded to all graduates of the US Special Forces Q-Course). Thanks for a great deal on a super competent folding knife.
