Make me! :viking:



OK, done. Where's my cookie?

Thank you, oh most Powerful Personage :)



I'm on a diet, so don't have any cookies on me at the moment, will a dog treat suffice ?   ;)  (I have lots of them, but it might be a bit smelly by the time it reaches you  :pok:  )

I'm not so sure, maybe if you only pretend to eat it and then secretly poison the bad guys with it  ???  ;)

I did insert them into a quote ;) I'll add the different blades too..




And I'll add them to the list ;)

Seems to be missing some that frequently pop up in the forum:

NiB   - New in Box
BNiB - Brand New in Box

BIN - Buy It Now (referring to the Buy It Now price on eBay)


These happened to cause me lots of headscratching in the day :D

I wish that when you ran your cursor over an acronym that someone has typed it's meaning pops up in a little box.
(would save searching on this thread)

Excellent Idea!  I've seen a directory on line of such acronyms, but a smart phone ap would be excellent. Could also be done as software pgm on a computer. The thing like it here, is putting the cursor over the members flag, esp if you can't see the flag well, and getting a verbal name in a box. That I can do!

It was mentioned before but, as it does apply to a SAK and a GAK, and others, It (these colors' acronyms) should be included in your acronym list. IMHO!

That is:  OG = Olive Green,  (Circa WWII) Gloss, I believe, as distinguished from other "Greens" used on SAKs.
             OD = Olive Drab,   (Circa Korean, perhaps before then, certainly Viet Nam era) A non-reflective Military Green. Our generation often uses OD in place of OG.
And, in fact "Camo", although not technically an acronym, is also applied to SAKs.
OG and OD are often interchanged, in the vernacular. I would use the OD for your SAK list.
Olive Green, and Tan, are the most abundant colors on SpaceShip Earth

Colors also used on SAKs, for the US Flag, Technically called "Old Glory", are:
              OG-Red
              OG-White         
              OG-Blue
In fact, anyone duplicating the US Flag, is required by U.S. Law, to use these colors, on flags for Government, Military and other legal applications. The rest of the world could probably care less. I would suspect that the Swiss, would follow this recommendation, on their knives' scales, out of respect, as they are our Allies. I believe these (OG-) colors are used on a few other countries' flags also. A good question for Mr Elsener, or the "factory".     Je ne sais quoi!
                                                                    Thanx, Oclip    :salute:

Og is also used here sometimes to denote the Original version of an Mt eg Og Wave as distinct from the New (version of the) Wave.

NIC = New In Clamshell (packaging)

JPST = Japanese Pocket Survival Tool (made by Leatherman)
