    Thanks kindly William. I remember reading that! My tree is on a steep hill and near a fence so stepping around it while practice cutting in close quarters is big fun. I need some branches to act as arms... or a willing partner.

    I think I scared the boy with my own blood... LOL

    I don't see much on the market that I'd consider "decent" for less than a couple hundred bucks.

    Indeed quality blades are not cheap.

    While this isn't a Kbit I love the design...hate the colors though (the orange one anyway).

    He babbles away about how you can only do this with a Strider because you'll break other knives.

    Utter nonsense, Striders are made of the same metals found on earth as any other knife...several months later he accidentally let it slip he broke his mighty Strider that day doing that dumb shit.

    Its the same age old story, those who can afford the finest cars, firearms and knives rarely have the skills needed to to gain the edge the finest tools provide. They'd have been better off buying a cheaper toy (because in their hands that's all it is) and getting some proper instruction in their usage.

    agreed...... I'll take a picture of my target (tree) later. My "toys" are still fine and I've been hacking at it for a couple years now.

    I also DO NOT spin mine but I like the rapid extension to hit with the back blade or in my case, TEETH. Black jack style knuckle busting.

    OMFG. That's old turtle head.

    Looks like that workout program he had posted up worked real well!
