    I'm actually not a fan of most of his designs, though I kind of enjoy the "counter terrorism knife"... He is largely a fantasy/decorative knife maker, and that does hurt the look of many of his "use-intended" designs: What I pointed out was that his work was not by the "Shadow Ops" company, which is what SilentJohn was implying by saying "they" and not mentioning his name...

    Also, while the serrations he does often look decorative (SilentJohn mentions them as looking like they are done by a drunk), they are actually designed to work, being specifically designed to break in a way that preserves their cutting ability when the material is too hard... It is a specialty of his, and the performance they provide can't be replicated by machine cut serrations like the stuff Spyderco does... Just because they look "tacticool" doesn't mean they are low quality trash that doesn't work.

    The "technical" sheaths are not my idea of a sheath (neither are his leather ones), but the "technical" sheaths are available for all his tactical knives, and you can bet there is a reason for every feature, as most of the features are there by user input...

    As for the Spyderco Paramilitary II, the blade to handle ratio is absurd, and most of its users would be better off with a good box cutter... Or at least the Spyderco Military for that matter (at least that offers something the box cutter doesn't)... I won't even go into the Sebenza, as with lock wear/failure from hand pressure, rolling edges and crummy edge-holding, that is almost like kicking someone while they are down...

    That second blade just screams cutting performance.

    Close. Very close, but the American Army Knife needs a tiger stripe blade and a wave feature for super quick deployment. Also needs a lock bar stabilizer and a braided lanyard with a skull bead so it can look badass tacticool.

    Good Lord!

    At 4:00am you're standing on your soapbox about Jay Fisher's (goofy) knives? Then go on about the Sebenza lock strength thread???

    You need to sleep-in a little later, have your coffee a little earlier, or reprioritize what you find important at 4:00am:D

    Wow, I think someone has missed the point of the tacticlol thread.

    Gaston444, just because you like Jay Fisher's stuff does not make it not silly, and just because you don't like two of the most popular and widely lauded knives I know of doesn't make a sebenza or pm tacticlol.

    This is supposed to be a fun thread

    I dig the Karambit actually. If the knife blade was made at more of an angle, and with a different handle material and a wrist lanyard hole was drilled it would be the perfect tactical knife. Very deadly.

    I guess it's a good thing I don't own a sebenza or a spyderco.

    Personally the Busse serrations make me laugh. They just don't look effective. And besides that serrations on a quarter inch thick blade? I don't see that helping much

    Wow, the possibilities with this one.

    Tap, rack, bang is going to be interesting. Be careful where you drop those empty mags and better go ahead and order you some replacement seat covers.

    To be fair it's just a cap that goes on the magazine . Still stupid though

    its so you can stab the mag into the wall for a fast re-load later! Can't wait to see Keanu Reeves do it in Jon Wick 2. Or once its empty, maybe you use it as a throwing knife?

    Also did someone just say something about serrations designed to break? really? Anywho. I'm more interested in a sheath designed to hold two flashlights, one of which is a mini-mag solitare, and is held with twisted wire. Was it done in the 90s?

    Well, more than 1/4 of the blade is blunt, uncomfortable filework on handle, uncomfortable handle at all. Even PM2 has better proportion.
