    Oh and for $250 or less. Now the real question, I want an extremely heavy (weight) large bladed folding knife with a failsafe locking mechanism. Is there such an animal in existence? My desire for heavy comes from my .50 cal Desert Eagle AE. If I am going to hold a weapon I want it to feel as such. I refuse to believe I am the only one with such a desire. The zt300 doesn't cut it for me, which by the way is a fine knife. And the beating I took for mentioning Dark Ops equipment has indeed left a hole in my heart. So, does the knife I seek exist or do I need to design it myself. (not really an option)

    * Decided to go with an Hossom Retribution-1 by Ontario Knives. Did some research and found that this knife might hold me for a while while I save up for the Extreme Ratio RAO, and the Crusader Forge both of which fit my idea of the perfect folder. Thanks for the help and No I am not SPRITE but thanks for the compliments

    Thick blades aren't very good at slicing.

    Other than some coolness factor, why do you need a very heavy bladed folder? What do you intend to cut?

    Why not go with a small, thick fixed blade knife?

    The thickness of the blade is not exactly as important and the overall weight of the knife, although is one aspect of the weight I desire. Have you ever noticed sound of a BMW door shutting. Solid, thick and quality comes to my mind. And to carry a fixed blade is just a little over the top for me. Thanks for your input.

    If your idea of the perfect handgun is a Desert Eagle of any kind, then you have some possibly unsolveable issues to begin with.

    I agree.
    I used to have a .50 cal D.E.
    Parts broke on it. It was the most UN-reliable handgun I've ever had.
    It was too big and too heavy.
    Ammo choices were few and limited.
    Other calibers and handguns can do the same things without the problems.

    I sold it.

    It was kinda like a big thick ,heavy folder.
    Too many drawbacks.

    Oh sh*t! I just read about your hole in the heart thing for mentioning Dark Ops.

    I'm sorry!
    DE's are really, um, um, BIG! Yeah, really big and NASTY LOOK'in!

    At least a BMW is functional. What you want, and why you want it, sounds a bit mall ninja to me. All for show.
    Heck, I have some mall ninja stuff.

    Good luck in your search.


    BTW, have you looked at the ballistics for the S&W 500 magnum? :)

    If you like Desert Eagles you would prolly like Strider knives.
