This one. Pops up on Steep and Cheap every once in a while too.

That is a dagger. It is very effective for stabbing flesh. Not so effective as a utility knife. For these reasons, they are illegal in many states (including more weapon friendly states like Texas).
No, you fool. It is the tip of a spear. Last time I checked, spears ain't illegal.

It fits the definition of a dagger. The fact that it can be added to a broomstick to make some World of Warcraft player's playtime demon fighting apparatus is irrelevant.

Do you carry a spear when you climb, fool?

You don't? What are all those sticks sport climbers carry for then?

Compensating for other shortcomings.

I personally do not carry the spear while climbing. As we do live in Montana, where there are plenty of grizzly bears and mountain lions, my girlfriend carries it for the approaches, and I usually carry some bear spray and occasionally a pistol.

Although I am getting pretty good with a bowstaff.

The pistol is to scare them off, correct? It's a serious question, because other than that or expediting one's own gruesome demise, I can't imagine how a pistol might be realiably useful against a grizzly bear.

This is not a knife that would be restricted to climbing.

You know, if you really wanted to show her just how much you love her (and just how classy you are), you could always have a matching set of custom made Kepharts made for her like the set I just had doneSmile



You could even have the scales made in a Micarta that would compliment her eyes.

That gun is insane. Wouldn't it be easier just to carry a sawn-off rifle or shotgun or something?

What's the best way to sharpen a knife? I've read and watched videos online, but there seems to be conflicting info. Using a dry, fine grit whetstone is what most people say, but what angle? What pressure? Does one scrape the blade as if cutting into the stone or slice across it? Maybe diagonally?

I usually cut slightly diagonally, but I haven't been able to get a good edge on several kitchen knives. I figure they're crap steel but maybe I'm doing something wrong.

Here's an excellent reference to knife selection and maintenance: http://ctfischerknives.com/..._knife_selection.pdf

If you scroll down to pages 6 and 7, you'll find some good and reliable information on sharpening.

I own two of Christopher's knives; a belt sheathed Nessmuck and a full tanged 3" neck knife (and I will be ordering a third before the end of the year). His craftmanship is outstanding! I could literally shave with either blade! They take an edge exceptionally well and hold it through lots of use (and abuse). My knives arrive pretty damn sharp already, so I just maintain the with a Belgian Blue whetstone (about 4000 grit). Belgian Blue is one of the best stones you can own. They can be ordered in the US from The Perfect Edge. The guy there really knows his stuff and is very helpful with any questions you may have.

I hope that helps.
