Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Default Review: Ka-Bar TDI

I've been searching for a good EDC defensive knife. I prefer a fixed blade to a folder. I bought the SOG Instinct Mini. Its a good knife, but a tad too small to get a good grip on. And the sheath is less than stellar, a thin metal clip that attaches to your belt that pivots and shifts with normal movement. So I looked around and tried the Gerber Ghoststrike. I like it but the belt has to feed though the sheath, no quick on/off. I had some spare money on my last paycheck, and after a bit more research, I bought the Ka-Bar TDI. About $55 on their website, but $35 on Amazon. "But Snake, Amazon is run by liberals!" I know, but $20 is $20. Anyway, I'm am very impressed with this knife. It sits in my hand like it belongs there. The sheath is solid and sturdy. It was pretty sharp right out of the box. I'm not sure what kind of steel it is, but as a defensive knife, it doesn't really matter to me. I won't be using this knife to open boxes, cut twine, etc. I carry a pocket knife for that. If I use this knife for its intended purpose, maintaining the edge won't be the first thing on my mind. So, if you're looking for an EDC fixed blade, I suggest you consider the Ka-Bar TDI.

The only skinning that I would possibly do with this knife would require me to contact an attorney. An attorney or a pig farmer.
