    A good friend shipped me a bunch of knives to play with. Very nice to be able to handle/fondle each of the different models.

    With 3 Striders in the mix, including a GB and a Custom Nightmare, I think I like the Emerson HMMV-K the best....

    :lol:, hell yeah... I'm screen shot Daddy...:lol:
    That Strider GB is 9 3/8" overall with a 3 1/2" blade. Not sure what it costs but I'm betting around $450.

    That would be close melbo...$450 to $500 or thereabouts for that Strider.

    Nice pictures... [cof]

    You should try one of these babies:

    The Coldsteel Gunsite

    I have had mine for over 8 years....maybe longer, hell I forget. Costed about $150 then, and is about $70 now. The Gunsite folders have an all Zytel handle with and integral pocket clip for easy carry. Mine has a 5" blade, and a 6" handle. I sometimes jab it through a quarter just to show how it can withstand such a feat....plus if I am ever attacked by a quarter, I am all set with my preparedness training.

    I can't believe that one folder costs $400 or more, Melbo! That's a HELL of a knife. Made from the fires of Mordor or something? :evil:

    You will not b able to braek that knife without mechanical leverage... You can cut a hole in concrete block with it and then cut your way inside a Truck... Striders are tough as nails.

    Bear, time for a lesson in Steel.....

    Take the GB.... hammer it through a hollow tile block a few times untill there's no more tile block.... then shove it through an old abandoned car door a few times.... bet you it comes through with flying colors.... Striders are tough... and that GB is their toughest folder.... well at least it certainly is their beefiest.... :D
