Saying you cannot see a use is strange to me.  :think:


The whole reason for an automatic knife escapes me when we are talking 2 inches.

Correct me if I am wrong but I think you are only thinking of a switchblade as a defensive weapon. I am NOT buying a switchblade to be used as a defensive weapon. Its a knife used for day to day cutting tasks.

The Tread, as best as I can figure is not a tool, it is "industrial jewelry". Its not intended for actual use. If I was 20 years younger and had a beard that I waxed, the Tread might have a place in my wardrobe. I might even wear it on Soy Latte Sunday's. As long as it didn't obscure any of my tats (that I don't actually have), or cause a rash on my wrist when I rode my bobbed cafe rat racer motorcycle with knobby tires to the inner city cafe...

What is this world coming to? No, don't answer that...

I think this is the disconnect; I'd rather have the simplicity and reduced price of a manual knife.
Personally all I can see in an Auto is surprise factor.

"Different strokes for different folks" as they say.

I like simple knives as well, but I am the opposite. I rather have a simple operating knife in a true defensive situation as there is not much to go wrong. If you are using a complicated knife In a defensive stressful situation then there is more to go wrong. If the switchblade doesn't open when I need to cut a box then no biggie. If it does not open when I need to save my own life then it is a big deal. Again, if that's what you prefer and it works for you then all the better.

As a side note if you are interested in fast deploying knives then look into anything with a Emerson wave. It is faster than any switchblade or any other knife on the planet. I assume you are familiar with these already though.

I am really interested in the new high dexterity gloves they are coming out with. Its one thing that really bugs me about certain gloves is the lack of dexterity.

Olight.

I have never heard someone say the word "so", as many times as this guy. It kind of started to bug me.  :think:

I'm about half way through the Spyderco video and the Mantra and Mantra II are.  :drool:

Not sure if that is how you spell the name.


Edit: Just got to the Lil. Lum. Spyderco is not disappointing.

Ah.  I had thought that the regular Lumberjack did come with T&T.

Still disappointed that we've not seen the Pioneer with Scissors. :-\
