Yes the dude has questionable idea's about a lot of subject's. But it's hard to dispute just how tough his knives are, and that's all I really care about :)
Give in, buy several Farmer's!!!!!!

I agree with that, but even if I did like CS, I think their quality has gone down over the years. I used to have over 20 CS knives, so I understand why people like them.  :tu:

I think it all depends on what end of the range you buy from :)

The cheapie's are definetly built down to a price quality wise, but your still getting a lot of blade for your money imo :)

I've not handled any of there really highend stuff for a good few years now, but it seems to stack up well to the competion :)

You don't want to know.... If you really must know, you'll need to go over to Bladeforums and read all that crap.

You hit the nail on the head with that statement,  sometimes its like a free for all over there.  Thank god we're a civilized lot here  :).

As blades and tools go, I don't pay much attention to all the crap thats slug around.  It makes an interesting read but if I like something it doesn't matter who makes it.  I own CS and Benchmade and regardless of what people's opinions are of the companies or the individuals running them they are still fine products.

Lynn Thompson has knocked off a few customs , one made by an aquaintance , and one by a friend of mine . He still has some good stuff . At one time all his range was good . His top of range stuff is insanely overpriced in relation to quality .

I would prefer to give my money to Spyderco or even Benchmade . They manufacture stuff , and actually innovate .

I have to say, Cold Steel does reproduce some odd and obscure weapons from history that you don't see everyday. 

I still want to get that african hippohide whip repro for some reason :D

"pothead"?


Is this a 1970s television cop drama? Where am I?


Frankly, I've seen some rather talented and meticulous "potheads" in my day. It isn't as if they are raving lunatics or slobbering drunkards. I could be wrong, but I suspect that anyone who is really all that worried about the workmanship of someone who smokes dope in their spare time has probably never even seen pot. I'd rather have a kid come in to work after an evening of bong hits than a hung over hillbilly who put 24 fresh empties in his Budweiser trash bin the night prior.

It's reefer madness!
