    I can't speak for other, but I myself understood that the legal code cited above said nothing of length.

    I was just stating the length of my knife to drive home the fact that it's silly that a 3" knife is illegal, just because it opens quickly...

    That law should be modified to set a maximum length to stay legal...

    I've closed my YouTube channel in protest to their anti- 1st & 2nd Amendment stance.

    What about a Smith & Wesson M&P model knife? Smith & Wesson SWMP2BS M&P Black MAGIC Scoop Back Tanto

    Also do you or do you know anyone who could put a nice edge on it? Price? Location of places?

    Thanks Rich

    rich,

    sorry for the slow reply! it APPEARS the MAGIC system is assisted opening, not automatic, so based on that it should be good. i have never handled one, so i am going on the info they supply on the SnW site.

    as to putting an edge on it: i can't find a blade steel spec ANYWHERE (RED FLAG!!!!!!). this will affect your edge holding more than the sharpening job. that being said, if you don't mind mailing a knife, Tom Krein is the man for sharpening ANYTHING. i think he charges $10, plus shipping, but he makes some of the sharpest knives ever. and, an even better idea, he could regrind it, to get teh edge geometry correct, thin out the blade to make it a better cutter. that is like $35, but if your gonna CUT stuff (not pry and split wood) it will turn it into a great a cutter as teh design and materials will allow.

    good luck!

    I noticed there was discussion about blade size. I think Merrillville has some ridiculously short maximum blade length for people under 18. The first time I read it I freaked because I missed the under 18 part and I would like to get the small Kabar TDI and it was larger than their max size.

    No problem. It's a 4034 Steel. It dulled up real quick IMHO, although I can be hard on knives I suppose. I bought a Rural King "Lansky" look alike sharpening system but wasn't really satisfied with it. From my understanding of the knife it has a edge on one side and blunt on the other side. I tried changing that and can tell a slight difference in the way it cuts. It seems it has held it's edge better since I tried adding the second edge.

    However, it still isn't as sharp as I would like it to be. I have an old knife (looks like a Swiss) and that old knife gets a great edge on a sharpner I have (looks like 2 washers that you pull the knife through) it's a much thinner blade though and I think that helps alot.

    As far as the M&P knife goes, I was really disappointed in the finish wearing off as fast as it did. I was unable to find a star key to fit the screws, holding on the pocket clip. So I bought some new ones and one of them broke off. So all in all I have a $43 fancy looking, fast opening, halfway sharp knife. NOT WHAT I SIGNED UP FOR! I will be giving the chance to the more exspensive knifes once more (Leatherman ALX) and if it fails me I will go back to my $20 and under knifes.

    Thanks for the info

    what type of edge is on it? does it have serrations? i can sharpen it for you if it is a plain edge, w/o serrations. just send it here, and toss a $5 in it for return shipping.


    the SnW knives are wasted money, imo.... you could have gotten MUCH better for the $50 you have in it. and the leatherman knives are better, but still not what i would call "high quality". their TOOLS, yeah! knives? ah... i can do without em! i hope it works well for you though!

    yeah. there are some "explainations" about why and how they get away with it... but, don't be lulled into a sense of "its ok"... because its not! sorta like running a red light because the guy in front of you got away with it! caution! difficulties ahead!
