Title: Influence has spread to unlikely places
Post by: gaurdduck on September 10, 2010, 05:12:35 am
I'm not down on this board often, mostly because I'm not an Oath Keeper myself (in the context of the constitutional oaths, I do keep my promises).

But, I found something interesting while looking at some bowie knives online.

The Oath Keeper Bowie Knife. There is a knife named after you guys! And it's HUGE. It has a 10 1/2" blade and a 5 1/2" hilt.

If, by some wild accident, someone named that $19.99 bowie knife in honor of the organization Oath Keepers, I believe I can speak for all of us in saying, "We, respectfully, decline."

Maybe if they name some of their sweet "Ninja Gear" after us, we will reconsider. :rolleyes:

IDK, I bought a black sands steel, hand forged Katana, the blade of which is worth $3,000. I got it for $3.40 on e-bay. Maybe it's cheap for a reason other than quality. If they supply their store through overstocks and low uncontested auction bids, you could get some great stuff for dirt cheap.

I once held a broad sword made by Wilkenson & Co. (UK). There's just something about
the feel of well made tools. It cost about $400 back in the late '70s.

You have to shop around, cutlery and car mechanics seem to have a similarly spotty quality.  19$ is a suspect price for a good quality knife, but there are some out there that are "good enough" at that price.  I wouldn't expect too much out of something at that price in anycase.

I bought a good skinning knife for 12$, it came with a matching serrated pocket knife. It does its job. For a low price, you aren't going to get a hand-forged, differentially tempered, hand polished blade, but you can get something that works well enough.
