A little piece of history there.
The bundeswehr standard issue is now the tanto version of my knife. Special units issue vary to include mine for para rescue. I wanted the more slender dagger version for precise penetration.

Interesting, we jumped with the Germans just outside Hohenfels and I became friends with one of their troopers and we traded knives.
This was in 1979.
It is a well constructed knife.

I just picked up a benchmade 9100 auto for 60 dollars. When bought brand new its 245. It's a little worn but it still works .

I'm thinking about picking this blade up from cold steel. It's priced at 130 never paid over 65 for a knife but I really like the design. Do y'all like cold steel blades??

They're good blades, my Spartan has handled everything i throw at it but is it worth 130? I think no, for that price i would pick up a benchmade or zero tolerance

Condor Tool and Knife, Kershaw.

I also sometimes buy really cheap knives and replace the blade with one of my own design. The sharpest knife I own started as a $1 potmetal knife from Walmart. I replaced it with some cheap high carbon steel that I etched in acid. I target lock backs because of their simplicity and superior lockup.

Love my ZT 0200 folder,built like a tank and balanced perfect! and whatever they coat their blades with Is some kind of magic. I could cut a dozen coke cans in half with it,give the blade a little oil and run out all the scratches. Everytime I clean it up looks just like the day I got it.

Just a tad big though,but I'm of thought thAt if your going to carry something,you should carry a big something.
