I like knives, all guys do. They are man’s first tool. I carry one everywhere I can. Until 911 I never was on a plane without one until I had one confiscated in Gatwick airport in London. They gave it to the pilot to hold until my arrival, and then gave it back to me. I lost a nice pocketknife to TSA in Panama City, and I have been sure to divest myself of my knives before I get to security.
I enjoy making knives. Making swords and making knives are similar, but the precision needed to make a “good” knife is a bit more than that required to make a good knife. I have a website featuring some of my historical designs made as modern tactical knives. SpecTactical.us – check it out. It is new, and I still have a lot of knives to make for this site to have any real depth.
