Review of: Flechette Darts 1 lb pk - US Military Surplus
I have no idea what I will do with these. None of mine came rusted. The vast majority are collated in opposite directions in a two-threaded coil. I think I'll try to see what weapon they might have been used in. Another reviewer said they might be good as blowgun darts. I'm thinking I might try that.

Review of: Caltrops - 2 Sets of 10
Just the thing to share with someone who deserves to be deflated if you want to make it anti-personal. Nah! Great conversation pieces but could be effective, if needed.

Review of: Hobbit Sting Scabbard
A very nice accessory for your "Sting" to keep it clean and sharp while you are questing. You'll be pleased at the feel of it when your weapon "snaps" snug and securely into place. If you don't get it, you'll regret it.

Review of: Night Watchman Tactical Mace
This is exactly what I have sought for so long. It is perfect for my purposes of home self-defense - when answering the door. It is very well balanced, solid, has excellent grip and retention qualities, and is perfectly weighted for one hand use in a confined space/area. Further, the rubberized spikes will enable me to inflict the "NECESSARY" amount of force, without inflicting "unnecessary or lethal" damage that a "truly metal Spiked" club/mace could. Thank you so much! I highly recommend this Night Watchman Tactical Mace over any other such item
for this purpose!!

Review of: WWII V-42 Elite Special Forces Knife with Scabbard
Appears to be an excellent knife for the money. I liked the fact that blade was "blued", rather than parkerized.
Apparently original knives were not parkerized. Previous review states handle is wrapped, not leather "washers", but on knife I received, you really cant tell. Metallurgy: Looks good. Does not appear soft. Would I trust this knife in combat application? Probably not, but looks to be an excellent example for reenactors, or display. Sheath: Pretty good interpretation of original style, but if I carried one, would probably change to leather,M-6 style with metal plates at tip area. Overall a plesantly suprisingly nice V-42!!

Review of: Railroad Spike Dagger
Let's start with the shipping department. They did a great job in securely packaging this knife and got it it off in record time.
As it comes from the manufacturer, the knife is inside a very heavy plastic bag. It is completely covered in oil and there was not a speck of rust on the knife anywhere. On the exterior of the wrapping at the blade point is a triangle of soft plastic that's about an inch long and slides over the tip of the blade. Have paper towels near you when you unbag the knife - it's oily! After cleaning the knife thoroughly I was really impressed with how it felt in my hand. It was as if this knife were custom-made for me. It fits my hand and balances perfectly. I wanted to see what kind of rough use it could take and took a can of soup and positioned the tip along the rim and gave it a good solid whack with the heel of my hand on the flat hilt. It easily punctured the soup can and when I walked it along the lid it cut quite easily.
I next sliced a small, recently fallen tree limb into thin strips of tinder. The edge I was using on this double edged knife is holding up just fine. I'm going to slice up a bunch of cardboard boxes today before I burn them and then hone the blade.
The sheath belies the $20 price point for this knife. It's well-made and securely holds the blade while still allowing you to get all four fingers on the hilt. There's a bit of space between the tip of the knife and the bottom of the sheath and the edges do not come in contact with the sides of the sheath. This alone will add to the longevity of the sheath. The loop on the sheath will easily handle a 2 and 3/4 inch belt. The sheath is double-stitched but I can't tell by feeling what material the stitching is. I may put a few rivets in just to be on the safe side. The sheath is a nice looking brown leather but I wish it were black leather.
Overall I'm thoroughly impressed with this knife and sheath. I'm going to have to buy a few more of this company's products.

Review of: Damascus Turquoise Skinner
I ordered 2, one as a gift and one for me. I bought the damascus bone microskinner 6 months ago and was very pleased. The turquoise looked similar so went for it. Absolutely beautiful. Great feel, was sharp but I easily made it sharper. Great deal for a beautiful knife. My new collection has begun
