@yakkoTDI I got it from Morningsave. It’s a damned fine knife, if a bit small for my hands. I agree the sheath is pretty shitty, but it’s not hard to make a sheath of your own or find a toolsmith in town willing to do it. Highly recommend this knife if you’re looking for an edc boot/belt knife. Works fine for general utility tasks.
@1Fatboy She looks like a killer to me. They all have smiles and then you end up dying at the check in counter at the airport. That has happened to me at least 8 times. Fortunately, they all missed. I’ve stopped flying commercial for now.
I mean sure, it’s good to know the origin, but I base many purchases on reviews from previous buyers, or research I’ve done on my own. I don’t know why people think “Made in China, so it’s a shitty knife.” Like Chinese people have never made knives before? I have owned a dumb number of pocket knives, boot knives, kitchen knives, shrimp knives, knife gumbo, knife etouffee, etc. The ones that lasted have come from Germany, the US, and yes, China. My current EDC for the past 3 years was made in China.
@Zendriver China can make good products. They often don’t make good products unless the manufacturers (or the contracting manufacturers) sit on them and watch very carefully to make sure that pennies are not being shaved by substituting lower grade materials or reducing finishing steps or substituting less skilled workers when the buyers are not looking. Its epidemic there.
Very few products that have had manufacturing moved to China have seen quality increase; some have seen equivalent quality for a while followed by decreases as the above pennyshaving occurs, and many see an immediate decrease (Swing-Away, Vise-Grip, Craftsman hand tools, etc).
Knowing a product is made in China means that a higher level of scrutiny into quality of material, manufacture, and finish is appropriate (or a significantly lower price if the above are clearly not met).
Notice how few people showed up when not a fukuboro for sale and diehards like me still do though we weren’t able to snag one ??
Wonder what stats are of vmp members here every night not just for fukoboro nights??

@awk I see! So you use the eneloops to power the heater and the blender to make Gummi Bear fricassee. Then when the batteries inevitably give out, you use the knives on the remainder of the Gummi Bears. It takes a long time to eviscerate 9 pounds of Gummi Bears.
@lowlypeon@jqubed yes to dagger or at least “double edged and pointed” which is the same category, yes illegal to (concealed) carry in some states, no to registration. At least, I’ve never heard of knife registration.
When your in your tent in the woods chillin like a villin that’s illin ,and you hear a brown bear just outside your tent, you pull this shit out quickly and i do mean quickly carve your arm off and throw it to him drop the knife and run like a race car…I’ll be back at 8am to grab one.
Hey! I misread the poll and clicked the wrong button! I have never written an Amazon review and likely won’t. I am not addicted to Amazon review writing, nor am I likely to write a review unless something is truly misrepresented, like all the counterfeit stuff. Amazon is my last choice to buy from, local sourcing and hands on at point of sale comes first. Though I am a sucker for mediocrity. meh
@JoseBandito I did around 2 months ago and I received a Gillette razor in the mail. Not sure if they are linked. Although if anyone wants to send me good stuff for free with coupons, I’ll take it. I use Dorco razors and they are great. And if you can get a Dorco razor and 2 refills for $2.99 shipped, I say go for it. They have the Pace 7 (7 blades) for that price right now but you are limited to 1. I use them as stocking stuffers and everyone love them. Go to Dorcousa.com and use the code Lovedp7 to get it down to $2.99. I think it’s a great deal. Just thought I would pass it along to the great people on the board.
BTW, please stop taking all the Fuko. I didn’t really care for the stuff but I have a friend that LOVES PURPLE. I was on time to get one, all three times and got shut out. I was even driving 70 mph at 4pm and was on it at exactly 4pm and missed it Ugggg. If anyone has a tip for me, I would really appreciate it. I’ve been a VMP for a really long time and only got one. The purple bag was the thing for me.
John Connor: Wait a minute here. You’re telling me that this thing can imitate anything it touches? The Terminator: Anything it samples by physical contact. John Connor: Get real, like it could disguise itself as a pack of cigarettes? The Terminator: No, only an object of equal size. John Connor: Then why doesn’t it become a bomb or a machine gun or something to get me? The Terminator: The T-1000 can’t form complex machines. Guns and explosives have chemicals in them. Moving parts. It doesn’t work that way, but it can form solid metal shapes. John Connor: Like what? The Terminator: Knives and stabbing weapons.
I mentioned this in a reply, but I have found this to be a great resource to see if knives are legal to carry in your state or states you might visit. State laws are quoted and discussed. The length of this knife alone is enough to disqualify it in some states, the fact that it’s two-edged in others.
