What i want for Chris…..oh wait, its over

Well, i still cant obtain any knives thus far but i am hoping that Sheares in Singapore has some that might fit my requirements. What i really want are these:

Throwing Knives:

How to prove your badass-ness

Both the Gran Laxandor and the Faka are knives i so dearly want. the Gran has a good design and grip and the ability to change the center of gravity with the sliding weight means I can change how far and how hard i can chuck knives around. The Faka is something i also wish to get my hands onto due to its most beautiful factor, simplicity. I love the simple design that still allows it to be lethal. The simple design also means it’ll be easy to conceal them and to draw them out quickly.


This site sells blades that cater to a lot of needs and functions. In particular, I’m interested in the Trail Master, the Scottish and Bowie Spike and the Steel Tiger.

The Trail Master piques my interest as i want to have a utility knife that is a fixed blade instead of a folding blade like those i have bought at the army surplus shops around Singapore. With a nice long blade of 9 1/2 inches of thickness 5/16 of an inch, it is a strong durable blade that can handle all the pounding you put it through. Also, it seems to make a good heavy throwing knife. If i do no take the Trail Master, the Blackhawk Tatang would definitely be the other choice. Similar to the Trail Master, this knife was featured in Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and i adored it for its sleek design and lethality.

The interest i have it the Spikes are simply for looks and also their usefulness. Good for quick-drawing in circumstances requiring self-preservation (although the chances of that happening in Singapore are low, I still like the idea of having a trusty tool of disagreement against a mugger), the Spikes are designed to inflict wounds of incapacitation and to discourage chases.

I have taking a shine to the Steel Tiger as it has the intimidation value the other 3 knives didn’t have. Something about the sleek curves of the blade and the sharpened tip makes me dread to have it drawn against me. Also, I saw the karambit knives while playing Call of Duty:Black Ops and they interested me in the way they were designed to be used.

Also, as a replacement to my current folding knife, which is my constant companion where ever i go, the Ak-47 by Cold Steel seems to fit the bill. Its rugged, simple and durable like the legendary gun it was named after and yet still packing a sharp edge that can hold. A worthy knife to carry around.

Why you should not hit on a girl until you are sure she doesn't carry a knife


About Manfred Tham

Manfred can typically be found hiding from people behind his computer screen or a tall pint. However you can easily contact him in any given video game where he will either insult you or be really nice to you. In addition his nerdiness transcends the digital plane when he partakes in the arcane rituals of rolling dice in both table-top and board games. Disregarding the countless hours he has logged into games, Manfred loves nothing more than cooking food to satisfy his craving for Northern European cuisine or to sip away from the many bottles of whiskies he fondly defaults to. Manfred is also what is commonly known as a “metalhead” with a penchant for both symphonic and power metal. Manfred summarises his life philosophy with a quote by Samuel L.Jackson, but it has been redacted for being far too vulgar.
