#a184 :: Maxam “Assisted Opening” Liner Lock Knife

August 16, 2008

Mom and Dad, medications being loving, clever parents, took pity upon me after reading about the pocketknife incident.

They Googled around and stumbled on, a sort of geek-heaven/tactical-weapons porn shop masquerading as a knife’n’flashlight supplier. For barely $7 you can buy (among other things including Tasers and swords) solid, Chinese-made pocket knives in myriad styles and colors, so they bought three.

When the package arrived, I opened this one first …

It nearly jumped out of my hands (click the photo above right to see a video). Frightening with four inches of serrated tanto blade, nicely knurled grips and a oo-look-kid-portholes belt clip. Once I got over how incredibly frightening and probably illegal it is, I actually grew to like it – it’s sharp, opens easily with a satisfying “snick” and feels solid. As solid as a gun. (Shudder).

I’ll be taking it to the playa, as there are many zipties, ropes and steaks to be slain. But I’ll probably stick with the much-more-subtle 3-inch Harsey Air Ranger whilst among civilians. It’d be a shame to lose this one to the law.
