    Primary EDC blade size

    I am just curious as to what size people's primary EDC blade is and if it's a folder or fixed blade. I prefer 3 3/4" - 4" for folders, but I will carry one that is 3 1/2" on occasion. I see a lot of great looking designs that just look too small to me. I've carried folders that were five or six...

    Veterans Hospitals Turning Medical Records Over to the FBI.

    On average, 22 American Veterans a day commit suicide. Now, on top of everything else, they have to worry about losing their Constitutional rights if they ask for help. Dead veterans don't need medical care. Nice budget cuts, Uncle Sam. Remember, the Second Amendment protects all of our other...

    Deer are not our friends

    I received this e-mail today. It was well written and humorous, but I couldn't help thinking a nice sheath knife or one handed opener would have made this guy's life a lot easier, even more than a CCW. I had this idea that I could rope a deer, put it in a stall, feed it up on corn for a...

    Life as we know it

    On the first day, God created the dog and said, "Sit all day by the door of your house and bark at anyone who comes in or walks past. For this, I will give you a life span of twenty years." The dog said, "That's a long time to be barking. How about only ten years and I'll give you back...

    Jigs: Curse or Cure?

    I had an interesting discussion at dinner Saturday night of the Blade Show with Don Cowles (my dad) and David Broadwell about jigs. Both were adamantly against them! David held up his hands and said, "These are my jigs." They both were of a mind that they were the only jigs you needed or...

    Butcher's Sharpening Steel questions

    My dad always used a sharpening steel to touch up knives in the kitchen when I was a kid. Does anyone here recommend a brand or model? I picked up a new 12" Mundial (like this) at the flea market today for $24.00. Are the single ceramic rod ones as good or does the knife need to be sharper...

    What's your first name?

    When I was in the military, almost everyone called each other by their last name. It always seemed distant, impersonal, and dehumanizing to me. One of the few things about serving that I inherently disliked. You called your buddies either by their first name or a nickname. The nicknames were...
