Just looked him up. Nope, not for me. I try to steer clear of this kind of music. My stuff is 50's, 60's, 70's, 80's, classical, blues, gospel, classic country, jazz, rock n' roll, surf, ect. I guess you can call me an old school boy. :D
Hard Rock, Metal, Heavy Metal, Punk, Grunge, ect. i can't stand. Even worse is pop and rap. Pretty bad stuff imho. Each to his own.
I agree edge. It's just the way it is. I try to steer clear of China stuff as much i can. We can't change it. We don't have to jump on board. It's just how it's always worked. No getting around it.
That's why i collect Queens, Schatt & Morgans, Winchesters, Imperials, Colonials, ect. I do buy china knives all the time. We are stuck as people. When you don't know there are other options to pick from, any products in general, or if they are too much, you will buy what's the cheapest and easiest. The way we people are.
It's like when everything moved to Japan. Stuff was utter rubbish at first. Now when you look at Japan stuff we speak super highly of it. Same thing with China.
One big difference with China is there gov is pretty evil. Ordinary people are in limbo. Nothing they can do to get the commies out. They have the weapons behind them.
Life is not fair. We live in a fallen world for sure. ::nod::

I agree Steel, he probably did. ::tu::

Remember him well! Most of his songs were written by a guy that probably no one has heard of: Jim Steinman.He is also responsible for a lot of Bonnie Tyler's stuff(no relation to Steven Tyler).My brother-in-law who is a musician was good friends with Jim and gave me a tape of Jim doing all his own songs. Pretty remarkable talent.

Gary, thanks for the info. I thought the Sere were purely folders. But you are correct, mine is with the 7" blade.

WOW! Great pictures of some great knives. I only have a few Al Mar knives and for some reason all of them came to me for really decent prices. Here is a picture of them.
The S.E.R.E. was a great score;bought it for $20 at an antique shop. The Osprey I bought years ago that was mixed in with a bunch of cheap knives for $2! The other Micarta handled one(can't remember the name)I bought last year for $65. The metal handled model I swapped for something. That is one that has a poor design flaw in it.
The blade is held in place by a small hook at the rear of the handle and must be moved to allow the blade to open. The problem is that over time the hook loosens up allowing the blade to open in your pocket! Don't ask me how I know this! :mrgreen:
