knife trade - peternap - 07-23-2015

I got into a trading match a little while ago. The fellow wanted a neck knife I made years ago.
I got one of the modded paint ball guns the police are using for riot control, a shoulder rig for it, a supply of pepper balls and the glass impact balls.
Got plans for it this fall.

Must've been a awesome knife for all that!

Yes and no. No ivory or damascus but I used one of the super steels that required a cold air quench, then a cryo dip in liquid nitrogen. Micarta scales and I hand pressed the kydex sheath. The thing holds an edge forever but is a mother to sharpen if you let it get dull.

Sounds like a lot of work went into it, but I believe you came out to the good?

That paintball gun sounds awesome! Can you slap up some pics of it please, Don?


RE: knife trade - peternap - 07-24-2015

Yep. I'll do it in a little. 
I'm going to play with it when I get a chance today. I've read about the pepper balls and the glass, which are pretty much big marbles...just never tried one.

I carry my taser everywhere, usually concealed but it's limited even with the EP cartridges, when someone has heavy clothes on.

The first picture is the gun with the magazine detached, the second size comparison with my taser

I have a lot of buck lure I can't use hunting anymore.
