The Knives are great to look at but what the hell is that alien mouth attached to that womans wrist someone please help her!!
We can thank the Soviets for the M-9 bayonet's wire cutter. They developed it for the AK-47 first, hole in the blade, stud on the sheath.
An interesting note is some years back the Army was all a ga ga over the Buck/Phrobis M9 bayonet that was acquired to put on the M16. Problem something about the saw teeth and some international laws it may be in conflict with. So the bayonets are normally kept locked up in foot lockers. Back in the 80s a Buck commercial version was available and I couldn't resist- bought one- the sheath ways as much as the knife but it also a wire cutter- carried it secretly as back the command frowned on such- Still have great camp tool! And a sharpener is integral in the sheath.
bigger is always better with knives
But there is one fine little tool no one has mentioned, and that is the break off blade utility knife. These come in sizes from small to large and you will find they will have a variety of uses. Just use your imagination. I have have my big knives,field dressing knives and the trusty machete, but I always carry a few of these in my pack as they weight nothing and are cheap to purchase. The blades are razor sharp and when it gets dull, extend it and break it off. The bigger ones have real sturdy blades and can be extended a couple of inches and used that way.They make a nice back-up when needed.
need to buy a few of these baby's, can never have enough blades. lol
I all ways carry a back pack when hunting. I have a folding knife for cleaning my kills. But I also carry a K-Bar Marine Knife. It is my survival knife.
Yes I carry a First Aid Kit Also.
When the going get tough I'd leave behind everything but my K-Bar. Its tough, It can chop wood, start fires, become a spear. It can do many things that nothing else in my pack can come close to. Does it look stupid on my belt. Probably But I'd rather look stupid then be unprepared or dead. You can have your 3 inch blade if you want.
But I was a boy scout. Always be prepared.
My big knife is a small heavy duty machete,modified with a grinder.Slow and easy with the grinder so the temper isn't affected.
them are what I call a knife. the world war II knife is pretty cool.
a tool is ony as good as the person useing it.
LOVE them SOG blades.
I agree with srg, A K-Bar was used in Iraq to cut my soninlaws (Stf. Sgt. Jerry Stuck)best friend and driver out of a Hummer after an ied atack. I do not use the knife but have one of my own. I cary it and a Swiss Trekker. Beautifull knives and ladies to.
To me the picture tells it all. The knife is too big to be functional. I use a Buck selector and it has done the job more then enough times.
don't hurt your selve now . i don't want you to get hurt
I'd prefer to look at smaller knives on bigger backgrounds. Leave the hardware to folks like Carmichael for show and tell boys and the babes to Hef.....
Chicks and Knives, what a great combination! I really like this theme. One suggestion, next time dress the girls in bikini's :-)
I don't use a big knife, just a functional one. My personal preference is an Emerson designed Benchmade,(Yeah I know, Benchmade no longer makes Emersons) in the CQC7 model. It is sharp enough to peel the skin off an amoeba.
I still have my Kabar...and carry it when appropriate. There is nothing wrong with collecting cold steel, but a three inch pocket knife and maybe a small hatchet is all you need for hunting.
First, Sara and Kristen, very nice I am sure you could make a rusted butter knife look good.
I have said it before and I will say it again, you don’t need a big ass knife. In most cases a big knife is a sign of a little wiener. They are big and heavy and not that practical, but boy are they cool. Don’t get caught in the big knife big $, knives. I have an M-9 bayonet, a Scrap Yard 6, and several other big knives. I don’t carry them. Consider a small hatchet for chopping. Consider a 3 inch drop point folder for gutting animals. For those who think they need a “combat knife” to quietly kill sentries, get a suppressor.
Gotta admit the knife nanes do the trick, you think marketing would catch on.
WoW!! if the knife magazines had these Gal's for model's they would sell lot's more!! Well Done!!Really apprecviate the mention of gerber knife in Iraq!! Sem,per Paratus 2All!!! Ye ole coaste
