    It has several really nice carry options and stays just under most legal length restrictions. Blade is 8Cr14MoV which is not the best steel, but in this case it will do the job. This is not a utility knife that will see heavy daily use.


    I seriously need to stop looking at knives.
    Oh yes, me too!!! I am lost with knives.

    I've seen yours in the shop here where I frequently buy knives. But for $50. how do you rate it? Happy with it? They have the the one you got and another one with the bright blade (I suppose I would take that one). Well, 8Cr14MoV is better than 8Cr13MoV.

    I like nitrided finishes, I have been using them on AR barrels for years and I am at the point where I prefer nitrided over chrome inside the barrel. It is tough and durable.

    It is hard to design a narrow blade that is a good slicer, but I think they have done a good job on this Obake. It has a thick, maybe 1/4" spine and a hollow grind edge. First thing I check a new knife for is a wire edge. This one did not have a wire edge. Most of these knife makers appear to be using something to grind the edge that gives it a micro serrated edge that sort of gives most people the impression it is razor sharp when it is not. I got on the ceramic rods this morning with it and it kept that razor edge as I smoothed it up. That tells me they had good edge geometry when they ground out the edge. I knew it would be a good thrusting blade, but now I know it is a good slicer too.

    I looked at the other models, but wasn't that impressed. I had a high school friend who got in a road rage type fight on the side of the road one night. He pinned the guy and beat him unconscious, but he took 23 stab wounds over the heart and lived. He told me he thought the guy was just hitting him with his fist, didn't realize he had been stabbed until afterwards. It was a 2 1/2" blade, the doctor told him if it had been a 1/4" longer he would had been a dead man. For some reason that has always stuck in my mind, and as a result I consider 3" the absolute minimum length for self defense in warm weather, unless all you want to do with that blade is cut yourself loose.

    I am disappointed with the belt clip. The video review I saw said it came with a J clip, but mine has an over the belt clip that won't handle any belt over 1 1/2", but that is easily corrected by cutting the clip into a J. The other carry option is to use the lanyard on your belt and tuck the knife inside your pants. In this carry option, the lanyard takes off the sheath as you draw. I have been thinking about just pushing it through a belt loop and tying the lanyard off on the belt. Carrying it in the 4 o'clock horizontal position (or in my case the 8 o'clock position being a lefty) it should ride easy and draw smoothly, only problem is that is also my normal pistol carry position.

    My philosophy on concealed carry of any kind is that the BG should not know you are carrying until either the knife is sticking in him, or he hears the sound of your gunfire. The life or death decision comes before you draw. That is the way I was taught and it has been the way I have taught my kids. Or as my old First Sergeant would tell me, "If it is a fair fight your tactics suck, Sir."

    Battle of Wanat: 10 years ago last 13 July, 1LT Brostram was killed in combat killing the last enemy combatant in the outpost. The LT went to the point of decision and made the difference that turned the tide of the battle. The original investigation found the Bde Cmdr, the Bn Cmdr and the Co Cmdr at fault for dereliction of duty. If you want to see what a sarcastic silver star citation reads like, pull up the company commander's silver star.

    DANG IT! They got me again! The knife center latest e-mail. I just had to do it. The knife is on the way. Never owned a Kershaw, but it's cheap. I could not resist. I have an assisted opener already that's a might heavy with a metal grip. I'll probably keep carrying it 'cause I prefer the partial serrated edge for gutting animals. I already have a great little Buck folder, but it's not an assisted opener. This stuff is a worse addiction than firearms!

    Did some early Christmas shopping.

    My youngest niece likes knives and commented on my Damascus Will Bromley made dagger- again- the other week, so I figured she 'needed' a Damascus folder. I hit Damascus Depot on Amazon for it.

    Damascus blade AND bolster with a liner lock. The scales are camel bone.

    It's a busy little thing. A WHOLE lot of stuff is going on with varying degrees of success. Honestly, I think this is the work of a younger bladesmith that had a list of things that they liked in various knives and they tried to combine all of them into one blade but they didn't combine in fact like they had it figured.

    I have several Damascus steel pocket knives and one hunting knife, and I think they were mostly made in the Cashmere area of Pakistan. Mine have Ram's horn and Buffalo Scales. Curious if your knife is more middle east in origin with the Camel bone scales.

    Camel bone is a very good handle material. The leg bones are quite dense bones. I've seen giraffe bone used, too.

    I have no idea as to where it's from. There's no markings on it at all.

    That's what I do with most kydex sheath.

    well, for the price, it's hard to get a good knife, a good sheath and a good clip
