My last two purchases were a Schrade Bowie and a Condor Atrox.

I bought a Wilkinson Sword straight razor that was made in the 1850s and a Nakayama Kiita Kan Koppa sharpening stone that was mined about 70 years ago.

Got a Holosun HE510c for a little variety. I like the quick release mount and the larg open view. Has a long battery life and there is a rough torture test on YouTube that shows its durability. Seems like my red dot is a faster at this point but the circle reticle is pretty cool.

I looked at those for my 9mm carbine but wasn't real sure about the quality. Glad to hear they are OK.

Just ordered one of these. I have been looking for a sub 2 inch bladed one. Not the highest quality there is, but it MIGHT work. We will see.

For the price I couldn't resist.

I bought my first Japanese hand forged kitchen knife. It is a Bunka (reverse tanto tip) with a blade length of 7. Typical Japanese construction of a hard inner layer of steel clad with two outer layers of soft steel. It has an octogonal handle also. Should be here on Tuesday so I can cut up a bunch of veggies for Japanese curry.

Well my Mtech K-bit https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/61eIraCffBL._SX425_.jpg came in today. It has a 1.75 inch long blade, is about .125 inches thick and came quite dull, but about 3 minutes on the crock sticks cleared that up. We will see how well that 440A steel keeps its edge (being 440A and less that 12 bucks shipped, I am not to optimistic). But I think it will serve its purpose.

Right now the only thing I don't like about it is that the ring is to small for my chubby fingers. Now if I hold it in a conventional grip with my pinky finger in the ring it is just fine. But if I hold it in the traditional or Ice Pick grip with the blade coming out from the bottom of my hand (it is a 3 finger handle, meaning the ring needs to be in your third finger in the reverse grip), they you close your hand into a fist the point of the blade (for me) juts out at about a 45 degree angle from the straight line of my forearm.

Other than that, it is what I have been wanting in a small blade.
