The SAK with lanyard bail thread
on: May 29, 2016, 05:45:40 PM
 I love how these old models look. It feels more comfortable in the hand to me compared to the modern lanyard ring placement as well as looking cool.

 Show if you got em  :tu:

You've got the best one I've seen so far Steve  :salute: I agree with you and wish they would still make them with the bail.
Here's my SI in a post:

Bails do look great but they can be real blade wreckers when they snap shut on them ... Especially Wenger soldiers with a free moving steel bail and nice strong back spring.

All that said a bail on an old knife is a thing of beauty :)

Double cheat!
A. The knife is no longer with me
B. The Bail is a mod







Edit: Triple cheat, as I forgot to mention teh knifewas cobbled together from different dismembered GAKs.

Still looking at past images (too much going on with the storms lately to dig the actual knives out). Probably more in the leper box ("unclean, unclean"). n :D
