We will see how this goes later: woodland, there’s more stool, sweet stewardess here, almost buddy, almost how’s it going Grom, is here sweet how you doing buddy very cool Donnie’s here, excellent how’s. Everybody doing tonight I just got home. Well I, at home, a little while ago I had a banquet to go to this afternoon. I’m doing well, my friend I am doing well.

I hope you are too that’s good Marshall. So I get home. Wife wasn’t home yeah. I am too woman, I’m really hoping the Wi-Fi behaves itself tonight. I’d really like to do this, so it’s all right, Stuart, there’s always next time right but yeah. So this is take two of the Saturday Night Live slip-joint Edition. I know, but Marshall will probably recognize a couple on the table and I don’t think I have anybody in here.

Just yeah. Well yeah. I guess Stuart. That is a slip joint, so I have to know that one locks I can’t put that one in there. That’s got a locking blade, yeah bummer. I almost got one on there for you, Stuart yeah, yeah, great yeah girl. There is a lot of red on the table very true and I will be completely honest with you and uh-huh. A lot of the red ones were well not a lot, I guess maybe half-and-half forgiving to me.

No, I think I bought most of yeah yeah, there’s a lot of red yeah this one Mike traveler you take about that one. The case that’s a great little knife. I love that, but I will I will tell you guys that Wow, like I said my wife’s, not home right now when she does get home. I do have something I need to tell her, so I might have to step out real, quick. Well, I’ll give you a topic that y’all can talk about.

If that happens, the advances of Western civilization from 1945 to 1960 that’ll be your topic when I jump up, if I have to so what do you mean? You only recognized one knife on the whole table buddy, which one you recognize the eslint line is nice. Marshall is responsible for me, giving giving me a couple on the table he’s responsible for me buying one. That’s on the table. Oh yeah, hey Doug, how you doing buddy good to see you so? Oh the Bushmaster, okay, yeah yeah, the Bushmaster definitely got my my homemade patina job on there a little bit a little bit of mustard smeared on there.

I just wanted to see what it would do and I’ll kind of like the Tiger striping. I got there and they’re kind of reminds me of a perch belly too. So I kind of did the whole glob and then I did the streaks on it. I, like the streaks, much better, just kind of playing around, but it’s kind of fun. I just did my uh, it’s not on the table, but I just did my up and all number six. I wrapped that in a you know, paper towels, soaked in vinegar and put a patina on that, so that’s kind of fun.

Yeah I mean dude for a what you know you can, if you get them on the BOGO they’re, a five dollar knife, probably probably one of the better five dollar knives you’re going to buy the Bushmaster. So, let’s see, oh here’s one that Marshall is responsible for me buying and I am very glad he showed this to me. It’s the lion steel net, just a gorgeous gorgeous knife. I absolutely love that blade. I mean that’s pretty much the you know the nine forty Osborn style blade tanto.

They look very, very similar and well here. Let me let me grab it real, quick, it’s right here, the 940. The first time I saw one it became my Grail. I got one see there, I got the 940 and it was alone, and Marshall is like Oh check this knife out. Oh yeah yeah, I guess I’ll be buying one of those too I’m darn it right. There we go trying to get to focus. The blades are very similar, really trying not to cut myself here, but I’m trying to also make it focus there.

We go very similar blades. I just love that blade style, yeah, cutting garlic, sure, hey Jett. What’s that buddy yeah, that lions steal juniors here yeah that line steel is very sweet, so not Marshall! Marshall is responsible for that one and I think you buddy, because yeah I’m so glad about that doc. What’s happening: CRKT secant, Oh okay! I put too many letters in there right at first. I thought you see those it’s CRKT uh.

This is another knife that I really love. Yes, it’s red as well, but oh, the bull nose. Yes, indeed, number 71 bull nose from GE see. I have not picked up a bull Buster John, from Grateful panic, yeah he’s responsible for this one because he lent me a bull nose to review and, like oh yeah, hope we get one of those real soon and I did great great knife. I mean this one. This one’s pretty much perfect for my hand.

I know the bull Buster, the number 21 – that knife would probably be better for larger hands, so yeah great great knife. I love that one well Buster’s kind of big for the pocket. Yeah I mean I could see that. I might never viewed the bull Buster to our good buddy, a secret-agent BH. Let me his to review and I could see you know it did definitely have to be a pocket dropper. I mean it was okay, I didn’t mind it in the pocket, but I get where you’re coming from Marshall.

The bull nose is a much better pocket friendly knife for sure yeah, they’re, Caribbean blue case is really nice man, I’d really like the color on that. Oh, you got an imperial den här sweet, very cool. Oh you didn’t miss a whole lot. Did you see the hot that dear I’ll show that real, quick cuz we just got started, but there’s the hot net Marshall made me buy. First time you heard the buck for the pocket dropper.

This is a nice girl from the party you wish they would make a smaller bullnose. Really that’s interesting smaller than that huh. Hmm ad for baron. Do you ever review custom knives um? I have not a lot um. I really only have one custom yeah again III have a clover knife works. I think I did it in a. I think I read that one I’m alive. Didn’t I 46 to 56. Oh, an old one, Wow! Well, that could be Jer or not gr.

Huh Jeff! You! If you got a knife like that. Well then, hey good on your brother, hey blue collar, how you doing buddy, Ozark yo man, how you doing man glad to have you always glad to have you as he did you can make it that is truer. Smaller bono saw Buster jr. There we go. I mean I get, I mean it’s a little smaller, not a lot. I got this case. Sod-Buster jr., my good buddy Larry, gave me this one.

I mean no, I mean it’s a tad smaller this one. I mean no just this comparison, so I really do like the sod-buster pattern. I love that pattern in a in a slip, joint, hey just in time how you doing hmm, that’s awesome, Jer, very cool you just like basically, a GEC sod-buster, jr., gotcha, yeah right huh. You’ve been drinking again well join the club brother, I’m drinking on a little bit of a lesion men’s room original red.

That’s like my homage to Grateful panic, that’s what I’m drinking so the handling huh! Okay, very cool! Oh well! I mean there’s not that much of a difference between those two I mean. That’s really the only good comparison. I have I mean my my slip joint, I mean you’re. Looking at all my slip joint, so I mean Mike said my collection. Isn’t that extensive? So that’s just the that’s just a comparison I have to make Eric so yeah.

Reds are good blue-collar. Now, when you say red beer, I mean this is a red yeah, but when I think of when somebody uses the term red beer, I think of beer with tomato juice in it, you know some people do Clamato or something like that. I personally like Bloody Mary Mix, so no, you can never have too enough knives a little Orange Crush. I got something I saw that in the fridge Woodley I like some orange Krush everyone, so on no, no Marshall, it’s it does not have that.

Where is he? I don’t know I don’t know where he’s at yeah, hey Rick, how you doing buddy yeah yeah gross. What’s gross! No, I don’t well. I will drink red beer with tomato juice, but I prefer Bloody Mary makes something like you know, Coors Light or something like that. But like not a good beer, of course but and no head, so don’t be offended that I say Bud Light and Coors. I aren’t good beers, it’s just.

I can’t bring them. I can’t drink quarters later but like Street, so I just can’t do it? No! No! Oh, I don’t have a Camillus, but I don’t have my work knife either Stewart that’s down in my bag, doggone it my Maxim my maxim sailors knife. I don’t have that on the table doggone it. I forgot that one Browns are good. Hey another nice guy. How you doing buddy yeah yeah, we’re doing okay for now, Rick we’ll keep your fingers crossed cross her for years crushed toes! Oh, there goes.

Somebody said something, and now it’s starting to tweak out on me. Hopefully you guys are I’m getting a circle of death over here, so hopefully you guys aren’t yeah. I can’t drink, but like blue collar. I just can’t I drink two of them when I wake up with a headache: okay, good! Well, it’s not I’m not seeing the same thing I was seeing last week. So as long as this is usually what happens. My picture goes out, but I still have the chat feed.

So I’m, okay with that, I don’t need to see myself, hey Thomas, how you doing buddy good to see you all right. Well, we’ll just keep going and not worry about it! Didn’t y’all yell at me if it starts going funky, but this is a knife that I really I really was surprised back when we had our Secret Santas, Oh in the shark spa in in Jimmy slashes. I this as a Secret Santa gift for somebody. It’s the Reich m11 m11 B to be exact, and when I got it I I did open it to make sure the knife was okay and everything – and I was like duh gone – that’s a cool knife, so it wasn’t very long and yeah.

I got myself one, but it’s kind of a cool little knife I mean yeah, it’s got a glass breaker, it’s nothing, but it does have tweezers. I’ve got good sized tweezers on it and it does have a pocket clip. You can take the pocket clip off. If you want to, but oh no, I just it feels really good in hand. It’s got g10, but the chickens almost got like a micarta ish feel to it a little bit, and I really dig this little guy yeah.

I mean a pocket clip on a slip. Joint, I know that’s not really. You know it’s not really a thing, but I just really liked the way it felt it felt really good in the hand. So, oh, let’s see what are some other gifts here. Oh where’s, the this one, that’s a gift right. There cool little canoe, it’s the only canoe. I have in my collection a little rough rider’ canoe like they’re, green, oh man. I wish Tojo was here.

I got a green eye for him. Well, here’s another one! I just got. This was a gift. This one came from Jay this one came along with the blind Revere knife that I still have to do, but it’s a Roper knives sell beli, buy American Buffalo knife and tool so cool little sob le knife digging it. What am I missing in the chat? Something’s problem, the knife is green yeah. I know, but so awesome awesome knife.

This one is a fantastic. This gift. This is a gift for my family for Christmas. This is an absolutely gorgeous knife. It’s I remember correctly. It’s perlite. It’s not real pearl, it’s fake Peru, but that’s all right. It’s an absolutely gorgeous gorgeous knife. If I have a safe Queen, this is it. This is a very, very special knife that doesn’t come out very often very, very gorgeous knife yeah. It’s it’s! It’s just absolutely gorgeous and I’m getting fingerprints all over and mucking it all up, but it’s just that those slanted bolsters on it very very nice, just a gorgeous gorgeous knife overall yeah that one stays that one stays kind of tucked away.

Yeah I was, I was pretty well blown away when I got that one, just a beautiful, beautiful knife, Coraline, that’s what it is. It’s white pearl coral on handle, so beautiful one. Second guys! Sorry! I couldn’t tell if my wife was home yet or not. Let’s see what else we have oh here we go this one Zacks in the house. What’s up buddy this one comes from my good buddy jr., another gorgeous gorgeous knife.

Oh man, that orange camel bone just Oh 43 want orange camel wound wow. That thing is just sexy: I’m usually not a big fan of orange, but that’s just sexy to me. Man she’s a gorgeous gorgeous knife overall and then I’m blinding you. This got that polished, bleed sweet knifed. Such awesome awesome people in this community. Let’s see what else I bought this one, I love the. I love the shield on that one case: doctor’s knife, American flag shield, nice little slender knife cut the cutting blade, got the pill.

Crusher pill, Smasher right there. That’s definitely nothing wrong with the camera. On that one Stuart, that’s all red and there’s the marble. Sowbelly Marshall gave me that one as well believe you gim me this is when the oh, you gave me this one, but it was this. The canoe and blue all at the same time, wasn’t it if I remember correctly well, that is true. That’s the crusher you’re right, Stuart, that’s the crusher part, but this marble cell belly.

I mean it’s a lot like the Roper knives, so Billy! So hey guys. Do me a favor, I will be right back like I said your topic for discussion, the. What did I say it was something between 1945 and 1960s. Just talk about between 1945 and 1919 60 be right back guys. Okay, I’m back I’m back. They go Stuart. There’s my sailor’s knife, I ran and got it there. You go sorry guys. I mean to do that to you. Yeah forget about forty five to six in nineteen sixty, I’m back.

I had to run downstairs that I needed to give you something to talk about. So he’s like, but there you go Stuart. That’s my maximum sailor’s knife. I mean it’s just a cheap little knife. There’s nothing, there’s absolutely nothing special about this knife, but it gets a lot of work. I put it through a lot ground it up. Did I wash my hands now I wash my hands, but I do have one sailors knife Stuart, that’s it so.

I know I should probably feel bad. Let’s see what else that’s are pretty. I like this guy, this cigar whittler another Rough Rider um. Oh, I can’t remember the model on this one shoot the model was it seen on here. Oh man, yeah you’ll have to. I do apologize guys, but remembering model numbers. I really really terrible at I my mind just doesn’t work, but I do like that. I do like that shape. What’s the ring, what ring Donny? Are you talking to me or somebody else? I got ta catch up here.

We didn’t even get to my birthday man, I’m missing something. What ship did I serve? One is that is that question. For me, Thomas, oh, that you trying to let that well this you can use it for splicing. You can use it for splicing rope yeah! That’s what I use it for splicing rope! Oh well! You know what this knife actually didn’t serve on a ship. I actually got this one after I got out of the Navy yeah, but the ship’s I served on uh.

I served on the USS Philadelphia, the USS Augusta, the USS Pittsburgh, the USS Hyman G rickover, the USS Salt Lake City and the USS Nevada. Those are all the ships I served on, Thomas. Oh sorry, I had to get a drink after that. Well, that’s good! Oh! This was a gift from John over a grateful panic. This Rough Rider cotton sampler when he gave this to me. That was the first time I’d ever seen a cotton sampler blade believe it or not.

Well, thank you thomas. I greatly appreciate it. Your uncle was on Roosevelt. That’s cool cheeks pick a boat already hey that wasn’t me brother. That was the Navy. Sending me all over the place. I didn’t have a choice: yeah Jeff was a jet, was a marine la chaise and LHD. Sure yeah John give me that that buckshot bone I like the way that looks now the only the only issue with buckshot bone is you can get some uneven parts like right there on the pin.

You know where the pins go through just depends on one of those buck shots. Our butt feels good in hand. Good grip ability, oh yeah, when he sent that to me. That was the first time I’d ever seen the cotton sampler blade. So I thought that was really cool. I don’t believe so Rick. I don’t know anything about that. You and Chad yeah the monitor uh my mos uh. Well, it was submarine summer that sort of was our Killman.

I was a submarine sonar technician. No, I am NOT a red dragon, I’m a blue nose, the only one I am as a blue nose, I’m not a I’m, not a shell back, I’m not a golden dragon. I’m not! The only thing I got was blue nose and for result for those of you that don’t know being a blue nose just means I was across the Arctic Circle, so I have ringing in my ears a lot Stewart. I do yes, yes indeed, it was. You are correct.

That is correct. That was our gentlemen. Are you sho back yeah? That’s cool this starter to get into the traditional knives me personally, my opinion. Rick. If you want pretty good, I mean pretty decent quality and the not expensive price. Any Rough Rider is a really good choice: they’re inexpensive they’re they’re, pretty solid. You know I mean it’s, it’s really hard to beat a good good Rough Rider knife to get into the game.

If that’s you know, if you’re looking to start with traditional, I mean here again and I don’t know Marshall – I mean, throw your opinion out there, but I mean but Kay sells ease. You know, they’re ten bucks, but they’re. You know. If you get there buy one, get one they’re, five bucks apiece, not a bad start, but I mean for overall quality. You know overall quality at a really good price. I mean you can get some really really really nice Rough Rider knives for fifteen bucks.

I mean seriously, I mean I’ve got, let’s see all the Rough Riders. I mean this little canoe, it’s a rough rider. The cigar whittler is a rough rider. This large, lock blade sod-buster, is a Rough Rider. This is this is the r3 r4 304, but it’s a lock well that one can’t be in there it’s a long plate. What is that doing there? I got thrown out nevermind, but no seriously, it’s a good knife. Uh Barlow’s are good patterns for sure you know.

That’s I do like the Barlow pattern and I don’t have any. Let’s see alright. This is a rough rider if you want a hawk bill that big ol knife, good pruning knife hoc bills are what I mean yeah truthfully, the Rough Riders, probably the way to go. To be perfectly honest with you, my favorite sod-buster, oh dang, oh you’re, going to put me on the spot. Um trappers are good knives to start with. You know.

Two blades trappers are a good place to go good place to start my favourite sod-buster, though oh man I’m going to go with in my collection, cuz. That’s what I have to oh dude man, oh man, it is really hard because I I mean it seriously, and I mean these are two complete sides of the spectrum. This is budget. This is not budget put them again, the bull nose, God they mean they’re, not too bad. I mean it’s a GE, see they so for what is it right? Around 70 bucks? I don’t remember, but in this one this SOG Buster junior, hawk, really loved.

The looks of this knife – that’s a really hard question buddy. That is really I mean if I really really really had to pick. My favorite sod-buster would probably be the bull nose for everything all around use. Dirt sturdiness, but I mean that saw Buster jr. Yeah. That’s just a pretty knife. I love that just a pretty pretty knife wait. This is budget too. You can’t go wrong with that thing. I’m telling you budget wise all day long all day, long budget, wise why’d, you pull nose, make you cry.

Oh I’d love to check that out of those art. I don’t have any really good nice Thor’s around I mean we have Cabela’s and we have well the closest one we have is Sportsman’s Warehouse, Sportsman’s Warehouse yeah. They got some all right knives, but it’s yeah. You know the blade recon spy. Oh, that sucks, hey VH, is here sweet. Did you have blade play in your Bushmaster? I mean yeah. I guess there’s a little I do.

I do have a little in mine, not too bad. That’s, okay! Buddy! I’m glad you hear me H, glad you made it. Let’s see, BH has lent me some really cool slip-joint to check out. It was a matter of fact. It was like. I said it was his bow buster that I reviewed. Let’s see what, if I reviewed of yours, BH, whether you’re 44, with a 44 to 38, both yours from GE, see that I reviewed yeah, yeah yeah. Those are great knives that gunstock.

I love the gun stock, Oh and the badge the bullet badge statuses. That is an awesome, awesome knife, a terrific terrific knife. Oh let’s see here I know Guerra was talking about Imperials earlier here’s a little Imperial Ric if you’re still here I mean this – isn’t a this, isn’t a bad little guy again fairly budget-friendly. I don’t think it’s quite on par with the Rough Riders, but it’s not bad. I mean the fit and finish: is it isn’t too bad on it? I’m pretty yeah.

We got a little bit of got a little bit of skip there. So then again you know it is a budget knife. So it’s not going to be perfect but yeah. If you had to go, I Rough Riders the way to go [ Laughter ], so yours had a little bit of play in it all right Beach. What’s more important, quality er looks well, I mean the true I mean the real answer is obviously quality, but I mean I want a quality night, so it looks good.

You know. I mean there again, it’s wood, it’s nothing special, but for the price. Now you have to when I think when you say quality, I I there’s quality and then there’s value. Yes, you want a good knife, that’ll hold up, and I and to you know whatever you’re going to do with it, and I mean, if you take a look at woodlands, tactical wasn’t tacticals article of what he did to this knife, which is an upfront lean if — what he did to it and what it held up to that tells me it’s a quality knife.

I mean, I don’t know if you all will agree with me or disagree with me, but I mean if you buy this on a BOGO, it’s a five dollar knife and people are going to say well that five dollar knife is not a quality knife. Well, if I woodland tactical took this 5.9 beat the hell out of it and it held up. So you know what that’s a quality knife in my book, so you know there’s a lot of things too. There’s a lot of things when you, when you throw that out there, you know, because you know when you say quality knife people are automatically going to think you know GC or something like that, and they are.

They are quality knives for sure quality for value. I that is a that’s probably the best way to put it buddy quality for value and in in my book you know. Quality for value goes a long long way and I think it does for pretty much everybody. I think that’s pretty hard up yeah. I saw you post a picture of your 21 BH glad it made it to you. Okay, you have a nice little box of goodies. There. That’s awesome value equals best quality at lowest price yeah.

I mean exactly right, Marshall, that’s that’s the way to do it and I mean and trust me trust me. You know I say I got this knife at bud. Kay immediately, people are going to say it’s a piece of junk because I got it from bud Kay. Well, it’s not the case, that’s not the case at all. It’s not a piece of junk. Is it the absolutely best knife on the market? Absolutely not I’m not going to say that it is, but, as Marshall said, it’s an extreme value knife, exactly Marshall aka that could be zero.

Eight, eight zero. Eight five I mean that’s a ten dollar knife. You’re right, Thomas price does not guarantee quality and my example that I will give for that is SOG. I have such a love-hate relationship with SOG. They have a lot of knives that look great. I’m like man that knife looks awesome. I get it like man. This ain’t, so great, you know it’s, that’s Kuby is doing a lot better on their knives.

I will agree with that statement Rodney and if that’s the first time, I’ve seen you buddy sorry how you doing man, if I haven’t said hi to you already, I’m sorry. I haven’t, but coupie is doing some good things with knives yeah. Let’s see $ 10 Sheffield yeah yeah, crkt man. They are really baffling the the prices they charge for some of their knives and mean yeah. I don’t know, and that could be jet.

You know I’m just this, I’m speaking from my experience. You know, I see one I’m like my head, that looks cool and I get in like man’s kind of sucks. You know it looks just that. It’s that type of it’s oh yeah kumys, come a long way. Buck 112 yeah, nothing wrong. I love! I love buck. Dives private purchase on trades, huh, yeah, no love from CRKT. How would them yeah? You know. I’ve been hearing that a lot Marshall um hey Menace? How you doing buddy I’ve been hearing that about see Eric scare Katie tinkers are great little knives.

My buddy has one I don’t have one. My buddy has on it’s cool, um knife. Oh, let’s see somebody said song chiku this one there’s a Kiku. Anybody wants to buy a Kiku, I’m selling it I’ll, sell it to you cheap, it’s just too big for me that little does have a couple little discolorations on the handle, I’m not sure but yeah I mean it’s in great shape other than those two colorations discolorations On the handle but I’ll sell it to you cheap just too big for me, if you want to Kiku in a good price email me big, Randy DC at gmail.

Com, we’ll talk. Yes, I believe it did come on battle walks. Yet this one did yeah. It is a big knife, it’s I mean it’s okay, but it’s I don’t know it’s just not for me. No, it’s just um. It’s not me. Actually. This is probably one of the better so knives. I have honestly, but it’s just a little big hey. I love knives how you doing five bucks sold – hey Jerry, if you really want it. Email me or message me seriously.

550. Whole word it up anymore. Well, this is also a battle box knife. This Lordan field, that’s kind of the battle box brand. Now I’ve been wanting to review this knife and I really can’t find anything out about it. So that’s why it’s kind of out here we’ll call this the review. I mean I’m guessing it’s pretty, probably 440 stainless. I have no idea my karna handles, though I do like to my Carter, handles the little hawk bill.

I’ve got a little knife: oh yeah right bidding war for the Kiku, alright, so the rest of this time, you’re in a bidding war for the Kiku. Excuse me just place your bids in the comment section and when we’re over highest bid wins okay, there you go well yeah. I mean it’s a cool little knife, but I I can’t find anything out on it. So I’m guessing it’s 440 stainless micarta handles feels good. I like the way it feels cool little blade, not as dramatic Tenace dramatic is the hawk bills.

This thing that the blade difference in those two yeah daddy hawk bill and Junior Hawk bill. I guess on which one one which one junior oh the, except to eight Jim field – 825, oh yeah, what is the the fit and finish? Are you talking about on this one on the on the Lord of the field? It’s not bad the fit and finish on this Hawk bill. Isn’t bad at all. Really um! You got a little race spot there on the lock.

I don’t know how easy if you can see that it’s just got a slight race spot and it is a little sharp, but I mean in your normal day to day operation. Are you going to feel that? No, probably not no, not really at all I mean that’s a lock bag too. Why is that in there anyway? Yeah I mean the Fitness finish, something that’s not bad. It is a lock back, so I got ta throw it out of this section, but no it’s not bad, I’m better at all decent! Oh, oh blue-collar, just sweeten the deal 931 an old license plate what state? What states of light slices play from be blue-collar? That will definitely make a difference.

Yeah. It is kind of cool that lock back it’s all right. I mistakenly put it in there red Chris. Oh, he said red, Oh BCS. If it was a 1971, I I’d be down the 70 that was the year before. I was born yeah old, so Oh, Oh red, Ontario moped license plate yeah Bobby hurry, hum yeah ten, Oh sold ten dollars in a big ray Dec sticker sold, mm-hmm yeah Stuart was going in with that red moped license plate. Hey.

Do me a favor guys, hang on one second I’ll be right back one. Second, everybody that pretty much was one second. So no, no, no, not the bathroom, not the bathroom on a pre-op jackknife from her dad. That’s cool! Nothing goes wrong with 1970 bah. Nothing is wrong with 1970, but he said he had a 70 license plate if he had a 71 license plate mm-hmm. Now now, if you had a 72 license plate and it was connected to a 72 Chevelle, you win anyone – oh my god.

No, I do feel yeah, I’m with you Rick no 81. Oh, my goodness at least nobody here. Nobody, here’s going to say the 90s. I hope. Oh wait a minute. What about Woodland well done was born. You yeah, you’re, close. Aren’t you buddy. Do I collect license plates? No, not really Stewart. I really don’t. I do have a few from Nebraska old Nebraska license plate. I I do, but no, I really, I really don’t collect license plate 89 yeah.

That was the year I graduated high school, so yeah yeah. You just might be hey Craig, how you doing glad to have you man, 75 model, marshal streamline built for speed, yeah buddy, oh, that sucks James. Oh, Oh Donny’s, matching you with 89 89 s as far as we got as long as nobody says: 90. We’re good. Okay, come on now come on now come on. That’s funny! Oh yeah yeah! I always have to. I always have to subtract a year Stuart.

Let’s see 71 do the math yeah. I always have to do that hey! Well, then you got new Smarties. You got any smarty Andy, they say here a baby-boomer trick. He just ate some right on ha seriously. How many of those things do you have left it was? It was two two and a half come on bags. Wasn’t it it was five pounds total all right. Bcs go make a drink; he got a lot left right on. Isn’t that what it was, though, wasn’t it two two-and-a-half pound bags? It wasn’t two five-pound bags.

Was it for all of you, they don’t know. I did a giveaway and there was one of the brass works prize and the thing as Smarties came with it and when, when the drawing was done woodland – oh it was one five-pound bag. Okay, woodland was all bummed. He said the guy stole his stole his Smarties. So me being the while me being me, I went on Amazon and I borrowed a bottom, a five-pound bag of Smarties and sent it to him because I didn’t want his feelings to be hurt.

So the cat is beating the crap. Oh, your cat is getting the creek. Well let the poor cat in then. Is it your cat? There isn’t somebody else’s cat yeah I like Smarties to Donnie. But what does it’s been good he’s been good he’s been parceling him out. So that’s good. So, Oh blue collar mmm-hmm eisenhower, really Rick all right, uh-huh! No, don’t get JR started on the tequila. Oh yeah, do you started buddy, so I think as of right now, Thomas and Rick maybe have us yeah you by all means do a shot of tequila.

For me cuz, I can’t do it. Oh mmm-hmm nope, no tequila for this guy, so everybody’s drinking heavy. Well, not everybody we’re drinking we’re having a good time talking about knives. That’s awesome! I love it! No! No worm! Oh don’t do the worm. So, okay, Canadian, hmm yeah, it’s got ta, be Canadian whiskey, bourbon! That’s all right! Rodney you’re! Here now, yeah bah bah! You got a lot of the good beers over there.

Man, the haunts uh, the Mach you’re, probably drinking a mock right now. Aren’t you I, like Canadian Club, Thomas, a good Canadian Club, any Canadian risky real any Canadian corn mash that stuff’s that stuff’s harsh noon? I have drank some, but it’s harsh this one is that time: you’re talking about redneck, no! No, that is strictly for display purposes. Only no EDC in that one whatsoever. Oh, let’s see hey baby.

Oh, oh, oh Donny! You brought up old granddad, oh my goodness! Oh you had to Borg. Is that that’s right right Tuborg! Is that you pronounce it? Oh 7:00 a.M. Yeah, okay? Well, it’s a back pocket knife, yeah yeah, a back pack pocket nice. Maybe now I can’t do Danish. Okay can’t remember. I think I drank some of that when I was when I was in Norway. It really sounds familiar most the time when we were in Norway.

I drank mock, though, really like the mock beer Danny’s old inside. Oh no, you ain’t hurt! Oh my god, guys. Hmm man, you’re killing me demon Christmas. Oh no! I could never do Jager all right, so you guys want to hear a peppermint schnapps story. You want to hear the story why I can’t even come within sniffing different sniffing distance of a bottle of peppermint schnapps. So well, if you don’t want to hear it, I’m going to tell it to you anyway.

So a friend of mine – and I we were probably I don’t – know – 13 ish in that area. We were hanging out at our house and he my brother had a bottle of peppermint schnapps in the freezer. Well, he also kept his skull wintergreen in the freezer. So we grabbed a bottle of we grabbed the bottle. Peppermint schnapps and we grabbed a can of the skull wintergreen and we went up into the trees. Grew up out of the country went up in the trees behind my mom’s house and commenced to drinking peppermint, schnapps and dipping school wintergreen.

It did not go well, as you can imagine. I probably swallowed a little bit of both and then Oh horrible horrible horrible horrible. To this day I cannot even smell peppermint schnapps without just like. Oh yeah, yeah, that’s horrible Marshall. I agree it is horrible. I was uh, it was just a and it was funny here, a few years ago, my wife bath and Bodyworks, or something at Christmastime. You know she brought all the Christmas scented soaps and she put a peppermint soap in the bathroom and I was washing my hands.

You know – and I pushed the soap in my hand, and I got a woof to that. Peppermint snow soap immediately got queasy. I was immediately just like. I hope that is got to go so yeah, so yeah yeah was not a wise decision was not a wise decision. Marshall you know, but when you’re 13 you know everything right cool rough rough day, but anyway, as long as it’s not peppermint, I’m okay. As long as it’s not performing oh the whole block – oh my goodness yeah.

That seems like a wicked combination like though it and Copenhagen mmm-hmm yeah. That sounds like disaster man, oh man, good times. So how long have they been going? Oh man, a little over an hour, been doing this a little over an hour. Well guys, I think I’m going to go say howdy to the wife, real quick. She got home a little time ago, but first off how about let’s give away a swag pack. What do you think I’m not leaving yet not quite yet, let’s give away a big ready, DC swag pack.

Benchmade 550 Griptilian Review and Use

Please do not forget to comment like share and subscribe if you want to see more awesome, Alaskan content like that right into this review. This is actually the first benchmade night I ever got and it’s been a pretty awesome.

Benchmade I’ve carried it for quite a few years. I don’t really religiously carry it anymore, as there are other options and, of course, being an EDC care reviewer. I try and keep more knives running through the rotation, but this knife kind of is special because it is my first bunch mate and I ever thought, and so that’s why I’ve kind of kept it around and the other reason I’ve kept around is because it is Still, even though it has hateful serrations on it, it still is a pretty capable knife overall, especially in an everyday, carry setting, and so once again does, unfortunately have serrations, but back when I was first getting this knife.

If I was kind of one of those kids at that time, I really liked the whole black blades and serrations, and all that kind of fancy stuff that really it was kind of a trend of being cool. But the trend didn’t really last because practically plain edges just end up being better overall, so yeah. That is, but it’s basically why this one has serrations on it and, as you guys will notice, I tried my hardest.

It still was a little bit hard, but as I was processing up that pizza box of an awesome pizza company, I was trying to actually split some of the testing between just the straightedge in just the serrations. It is a little bit hard because this blade is not the longest blade, and so it can be a little bit difficult when you’re trying to kind of slice through something to just keep it on just the serrations or just the blade.

And I also did a little bit of intermixed, so you know if you’re just a straight slash right through that cardboard, you’d first catch the serrations and then the plain edge, so there’s going to be a little bit of. But I wanted to kind of show you guys what it looked like with just the plain edge and what it looked like with just the serrations. I will say I think the serrations had a bit of an easier time with part of the cardboard.

I think they might be a little bit better and of breaking up the cardboard fiber kind of just going right through it. So partially serrated blades aren’t entirely bad, but they definitely are not my favorite. They do have some batter applications such as fibrous materials like cardboard and especially ropes. Serrations tend to go through a lot faster, but at the same time they can be a little bit harder to maintain and overall, I think they kind of just don’t look that good.

Anyways, so my overall experience with this knife has been, for the most part, really good. I’ve really enjoyed this knife and there’s a reason other than this. Just being my first bench made why this knife has stuck around with me for the past, like five or six years, bunch mates, really it’s just an overall great knife. Now I currently have this one on a lanyard, because I don’t really like the benchmade clips, and so I thought I would just run this one on a lanyard.

I don’t run it that frequently that one I do occasionally run this knife. I kind of like to mix it up and just kind of throw it in the pocket and just kind of run it that way, because every once a while I do enjoy a lanyard knife instead of one that has a pocket clip on it. So that is how it’s running as far as retention or in the pocket carry as far as overall organ of expulsion, a far n handles there, nothing special it’s just like a plastic handle and you can definitely tell they kind of feel a little cheap.

But at the same time that that cheapness does pay off, because these knives are still pretty affordable for what you’re getting and so that the cheap material and the handles helps you to have a better blade material and a higher-quality knife at a lower price. So I really can’t complain about the material as far as the material does go. It has to to test the time and I’ve abused the knife quite a bit and accidentally like dropped this knife in the closed position.

Thank the Lord on things like stone and rock, and it has a few gashes in the handle to prove of that, but the handle hasn’t shattered or it hasn’t really cracked in any ways, though other than that the for the most part, the ergonomic still pretty squared Away this is not really a tactical knife, but it could be used in that way. You do have jumping back here for your thumb, and so it could. I will say I don’t know if the 550 having a kind of reverse sheet foot blade, is the best option for a tactical knife, because it’s not the absolute most pointy, because your tip is kind of downward sloping.

Certainly not like another knife. That’s similar like this. One and the primary reason why the nsync Oh grind is so much better at penetration is because Chris breeze has actually gone in and put cuts on the both of the top to both sides of the top of this tip and helped thin out the overall blade Material here and put a false edge on the top, so it kind of AIDS in penetration, so that I will say is why that downward sloping tip on the nsync.

Oh grind works so well, but this one obviously does not have that so other plate features that I do really enjoy are not the serrations cuz. I don’t really enjoyed those, but I do actually love the opening hole. I am a big fan of Spyderco knives. I wish I could have more of them, but right now only have one of them in the current collection, and even though I only have one, I still love all these Spyderco whole opening knives and including when benchmade put a spider hole hug their knives, regardless to How controversial that is or isn’t? I still really enjoy that? I really do like that, and I, like that, a lot more than 5:51.

I believe it is the one that just has the thumb studs, which is not bad. I have a few thumb stud bench maids. This one included and the 5d sexes – and so some studs are not the worst thing in the world, but I kind of like these whole openers more, but I do like the the whole overall. It also kind of lightens the blade stock a little bit more and as far as the 5d justify 50 goes, I do like the blade shape a little bit more.

This one is in a black. I forget the coating that they use for this, but, as you guys can see, this one has been heavily used in a bit abused on the tip and it definitely has a bit of a we’re on this coating. But for the most part, this coating is a pretty tough black coating and it’s not too tacky. I know some people don’t like st coatings, because they’re really tacky and this one just like any coating – does have a bit of tackiness to it.

But for the most part it is overall pretty smooth and, like I said within reason, pretty durable – I mean most of this tip kind of we’re here has happened when I actually stabbed this knife into some tin cans. This was really early on and I stabbed this knife into some tin cans to like make a Hobo, stove air or a couple Hostos actually, and that’s what actually primarily wore off this coating was that contact with the tin can on this steel, just kind of tough To clothing right off, so that’s a pretty and good abuse to take the coating off.

So I’m not too surprised to cody wore off when doing that, and then on the back of this, I also induced this knife quite a bit for striking feral rods, because it does have a pretty sharp back on it. So the back of this knife is actually the coating is pretty beat up because I’ll use it a lot to strike Ferro rods. As far as the lock goes, this is, of course, an axis lock and I love axis locks. If you guys haven’t noticed, I have or have had a lot of bench maids in the collection, and that is on purpose.

I do really love benchmade axis locks in particular, so overall I really loved their axis. Lock, it’s a fun lock to use. I really have a knife that smooth without a bit of side to side place so like these types of knives will have. You know just a little bit of side-to-side play, but that’s that’s because they’re so smooth or if I said over all up and down play is absolutely nothing and very solid lockup for six years and I do go in and I kind of clean this one every Once in a while, when there’s kind of dirt built up on the actual axis lost, because acting kind of at times hinder your lock up, but that’s about all, I do, for it blade centering for anyone who cares this one’s actually pretty well centered.

Now, on to the actual blade, as far as it goes and at retention, this is, of course a 154cm version, so this isn’t anything special. I know they’ve made some like s30v CPM, 20v blades and higher-end Steel’s for the grip, Tilian and I’m sure those work just like CPM, s30v, normally works or just how CPM 20v normally works in itself, but the 154cm on this works pretty well. I did get one off knife of a bench made barrage that I still have, which was my second bench made – that I think they over heat treated, because that one is really hard to put an edge on.

But I have a few, a CPM or not CPM but 154cm from bench made and they overall they don’t hold an edge forever, but they do sharpen up pretty fast and pretty easily this one included and it holds an edge for at least an amount of time. It’s not the most amazing steel, but it’s definitely better than something like 440 C or even vg10. In my opinion, and so edge retention is pretty good in that regard, the overall blade on this.

I think I would have enjoyed a lot more had it been a plain edge and I do actually really like the 550 in-plane edge. This serration version. A serrated version is not the worst in the world. It definitely in an EDC. Type of format does perform pretty. Okay, like you, can see how well the serrations weren’t able to chew through, like cardboard once again, rope things like paper. It kind of struggles with because there’s just so many angles of contact with a serrated blade that it can cause the paper or thinner material.

So you’re trying to cut to kind of like crinkle instead of just slicing right to brew it other than that. Like I said, I really don’t have any complaints, I find the blade length to be just fine for most EDC tasks. Personally, I’ve always been more a fan of these kinds of more wider and larger blades, so like with this 940 here you can see how kind of like pencil then this 940 is and some people they love just having like a really thin blade, but I tend To like knives that are more like that they’re Tilian here and more like this Sebenza that have more kind of width to them to just overall, they seem like larger, more well-built nice.

It’s not does it. This is not a well-built knife. I’m sure this is but this overall kind of gives more of a just feel like you’re, actually holding more of a knife, and I kind of like that in a knife personally and that’s more aesthetics, so anyways, that’s basically all I have to say on the bench Made 550 grip Tilian with this awesome, lanyard mod that I did to it and that’s basically all I have to say on it.

As always, god bless and I’m not
