    Not really. It's just a bunch of pics of the tools. The author never does get into recognition of such tools on persons or on other items (in luggage, hidden in things).

    The only reason I have a copy of the book is because the author sent me a "courtesy" copy since I have a few items in there.

    I don't have a copy but I first became aware of it when I noticed it for sale at Laci Szabo's web site:


    ...that was before I noticed this thread. Here is the text from Szabo's site:

    Well then... A "coffee table" book of knives... Nice idea except the "marketeeeering" references taste quite bad to those of us who are somewhat "sensitive" to tools that we appreciate being labled in such a negative manner.

    Like I said before... Gotta give the guy props for legitimizing his personal collection to his wife...;) That and the possibility that possession of some of the tools depicted in his book MAY be illegal in his area and the book may have legitimized his possession of same to the authorities in his jurisdiction.

    All the very best,

    yea the "bad guy" will go and buy an expensive, signatured custom made or limited edition weapon just to use it on you or your family. this guy clearly chose the wrong way and turned his back on the knife people community.

    i am new here, this is one of first posts i read, it's interesting though ;)

    First off i will say: I have no idea how i ended up in this thread. What the hell. :confused:

    When i look at the site http://www.rossiter2000.com/ i come to one of those weirdass "What you need, when you need it"-sites. Placeholder i guess.
    There are a few clickable words there.
    » Covert Weapons
    » Self Defense Weapon
    » Weapons
    » Dating
    » Weapon
    » Swords

    Now when i click "Covert Weapons" theres what they call a featured site, saying "Looking For Weapon?".
    Looking at the clickable words again, they have changed... one of them is "Airline Tickets". How convient. :rolleyes:

    So i guess his book didn't exactly make the expected sales. (well, that or he has switched sides. :D Or wait, actually when i think about it... eh. You know. ;) )

    Not all of europe is a police state, mmkay? Our gun laws may be very restrictive, but germany's (and even more so the laws of austria, the swiss, and alot of the east-european states) knife laws are probably WAY more relaxed than those of most American States. f.e. we don't have any size restrictions. I could legally EDC a freakin sword.
    In how many US-states can you do the same? Or how about Cana... bwahaha ok i won't even go there. :p :D

    So, there. Europe =! UK. :rolleyes:

    What is a wedding ring as a covert weapon? Sounds very interesting. How can I get one?

    Dr Sharp, you list a western canada location...i'm curious, you ever worked in Hospital Security Management in the Lower Mainland? Or for Paladin Security? Your writing style reminds me exactly of one of the Hospital Managers i worked with.

    Actually sir, "covert edged weapons" are not very much of a problem. The so called "butcher's knife" that is actually a chef's knife design is responsible for many times more murders and assaults than any of the weapons in your book.

    Furthermore, there is no security to be derived from a "all or nothing" approach to being armed. If everyone is armed, then that includes both those of bad character and those too incompetent to bear arms. If no one is armed, that includes the good people who would carry arms for legitimate purposes but not those who would do so with ill intent. This is a false dichotomy, in which neither option is secure. The best option for security is liberty, in which the free market shall determine whom is armed and who is not armed.

    Huh? What does a free market have to do with it? Only people who can afford guns are allowed to defend themselves? I don't understand your point at all.

    I'm trying to wrap my head around that but I'm just not getting it. What the heck does a free market have to do with the right to defend yourself?
