OH BTW, my favorite axis is definitely the BM Rukus. It's a monster of a folder.

Here's a comparison shot.



Some more artsy shots.













I really wish they made the Rukus in M2 or some other steel. It's rather large for an S30V blade.

AHAHHAAHAHHAAHAHAH!!!!!!!!

Thank you Mag, that was hilarious... yet stupid at the same time. Though, it was a good laugh, thanks, I really needed that. (been really busy lately)

I'm not sure it really applies to the knife world.

What's the next vid. A Dog vs. Hog.

For StansBrew and anyone else passing through WA state, FYI on the King County regs...

The county does not have a 3" limit to the best of my understanding. The county is covered under state law which states, "It shall be unlawful for any person to carry, exhibit, display, or draw any [knife] apparently capable of producing bodily harm, in a manner, under circumstances, and at a time and place that either manifests an intent to intimidate another or that warrants alarm for the safety of other persons."

The only place with a different legal situation is the City of Seattle (and who wants to go to that side of the lake?) which prohibits (can not carry on your person) as follows:

=======
Seattle Municipal Code
The following definitions apply in this chapter:
A. "Dangerous knife" means any fixed-blade knife and any other knife having a blade more than three and one-half inches (3 1/2") in length.
B. "Fixed-blade knife" means any knife, regardless of blade length, with a blade which is permanently open and does not fold, retract or slide into the handle of the knife, and includes any dagger, sword, bayonet, bolo knife, hatchet, axe, straight-edged razor, or razor blade not in a package, dispenser or shaving appliance.
=======

Better watch that X-acto... it is a fixed blade and therefore illegal to possess within city limits!

i used to cycle through a variety of folders until I picked up my emerson. I've carried it everyday since then. I chose the CQC-10. I absolutely love love love it.

I've posted mine before, but I carry a Kershaw Leek (model 1660G10ST -- G10, s30v stonewashed combo-edge blade) as my primary folder. I also carry a John Greco Whisper folder, which is a very heavy-duty knife, although I haven't encountered anything at the office that the Leek couldn't handle.

I used to carry a Puma (zytel-handled) Protec and tried to go back to it recently -- I was concerned that someone might complain about the assisted-opening Leek, but due to it's thicker blade, the Protec simply didn't slice as well as the Leek so I've just tried to be low-key when opening it. It's funny because I remembered that Puma as cutting so well, but it just didn't stand up well in comparison.

I've wanted a Blade-Tech M.L.E.K. for a while, and bought one last night -- I'm not sure I'll ever carry it, but it was being auctioned for a good cause (BF posted some links to fund-raising auctions for Tony Metsala, a knifemaker who lost his shop in a fire). I got a much better price on the auction than I expected (probably because the West-coast crowd was still at work when it ended). I'd have been happy to have gotten it at $20 more than the final price, so I sent that along too. I don't give to a lot of things, and am even offended when people at work push for donations to their favorite charity, but I figure that if I ever find myself in real need, perhaps a few bucks at just the right time might help turn things around for me -- banking a little Karma once in a while may or may not make a difference, but it can't hurt.

I noticed PoP's post after I committed mine. I'd say that you're technically correct, but since Scrap Yard doesn't manufacture folding knives, I don't see this as being about competitor's knives. Cold One or Private Klink will lock the thread down if they disagree, but for the moment, it's just a bunch of folks talking about their hobby, so I don't think they'll mind.

While I have a number of folders that I use more often than I use any fixed blade knife, including SYKCO knives, I don't feel that it is within the rules unless the folders are being shown in a comparison to a scrap yard knife, or for use in a combo, or in some way related to Scrap Yard Knives. These are some pretty pictures and I enjoy seeing them, but let's at least try to abide by the rules as posted. I used to post pictures of all kinds of knives here, but we have been asked not to discuss other manufacturer's knives here except in comparisons or chop offs. I invite you all to join Blade Forums and post over there under General Knife Discussion. Just my .02.

well let's bring the discussion back to within the rules. Who has a rat trap out there? how does it stack up against some of the more popular folders? I've seen a couple in the aftermarket and wonder if they are of the same quality that the rest of the busse family fixed blades.
