Ceramic Knives

Does anyone have any? I have seen the Bokers and Heard about the Mad Dogs, and I think it is a cool Idea even if they are a little fragile for everyday use.

Ok Junior, here's some tips for you:

1. SF dudes don't tie their bullet launchers to their rucks so they don't have to carry them.

2. Knives are made of steel - crock pots and figurines are made of ceramics (I was told about the figurines - no first hand knowledge).

3. There's no crying in SF - at any time for any reason. One exception - rage.

More to follow...

No, the long ones are cool. Pistols should be made of steel as well, but I can't say much, Glock is all I can get here.

I understand that part of the dilema. Why is Glock all you can get?

I don't know, but we can't even get those anymore. I was offered 2k for my 19 a couple of months ago. They have very strict importing and you can only really buy from the goverment if you want to get papers. I had a Major tell me they don't import Glocks anymore because they can be used to torture people. I think it has something to do with that fookin' EU and their human rights stuff.

What a bunch of sorry DEGSACers! (Say it out loud).

Reminds me of the Russian 7th SFGA CSM, who used to call us a bunch of forkin' corksacking sunny beaches.

uh, about those ceramic knives? I don't own any but have had the chance to both inspect and try some out a little. (hope that doesn't make me gay or something...) First, the ceramic is tougher than we'd expect and very sharp from the factory. Second, ceramic isn't that tough and I think would be very difficult to field sharpen. They use pretty good stuff in those. I also don't think they have the same aggressive edge we like in our steel knives, something doesn't seem quite right about ceramic. The Native Americans used many different types of stone for edged tools and points. Obsidian, chert, flint, agate, jasper, basalt and other rocks that would fracture right got made into tools. Obsidian will frature to the last few molecules at the edge. I've worked this stuff before and learned to track the blood trail back to whatever body part was leaking. It really is that sharp. BUT it doesn't have any tensile strength compared to steel and that's why the native Americans traded for steel items whenever they could. This of course was after the coming of the white man. Speaking of steel, the peoples of the circumpolar north used found meteoric iron for making into steel articles. This goes back many hundreds if not thousands of years in the artic north. Meteors are considered the first source of steel going back about 4000 thousand years for other cultures, long before steel could be smelted from ore. Ok I'll go back to my room now.
