As to the knife, I got a hell of a deal on this model as a close out from Smokey Mountain Knifeworks. I bought 4 of them and gave two as gifts and kept 2 for me. Depending on the situation, I at times, substitute a Gerber folding Applegate/Fairbairn in a horizontal carry or a Cold Steel Scimitar.
I wonder what Obama carries? He's gonna to need a big stick, what with Korea and Iran acting up. Then Israel is bucking his wishes and proceeding to build in existing settlements which will be an excuse for the Palestinians and their ilk to resume the rocket and bomb attack on Israel who will respond with all their might.. Speaking of Israel, they may be looking at preemptive strike on Iran. Again. Didn't Say It Ain't So Joe predict/reveal this in the campaign for president?
