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:
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.
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.
