I was at work telling a friend about my Izula and how blood thirsty they are, while trying to take off my last cord wrap because I wrapped it to high and it wasn't locking into the sheath. Well it got me. No stiches thank god. I couldn't stop laughing about it. I was just looking at this forums bites before this even happened.

Guru i know about the tape, I did when I wrapped it. Got bored and said quit putting it off, just "be careful"..... I fused the ends together and tried using my hands to pull it apart. Wasn't workin so I used my Byrd cara cara to cut the ends. The izula must have gotten pissed at me touching a non ESSE knife.

you think that these things bite? go on over to a katana forum. when those guys miss their scabbard while resheathing, they lose fingers!

Why not sheath the Izula while wrapping or unwrapping handle? That has worked for me with no bites yet. With it and the Eskabar. I will eventually get a bite somehow from my Izula I can imagine. When a knife bites me, it is always after I got too tired and then got careless. Plenty of scars to prove it.

Yeah, well head over to the lightsaber forums. They lose entire torsos when they do cord wraps.

Another Izula bite!

Every so often I'll pour a glass or three of whiskey, take out some knives and give them the once over...sharpening, stropping, etc...I haven't slipped yet! If anything my hands are more steady after a drink.

Well, DeAdEyE956,

It's my first day on this forum and I see that I'm not alone.

Wrapped a new Desert Tan Izula and sheath in Coyote Brown 2 weeks ago and left a little red stuff on it. Didn't cover the blade; that would take the fun out of it. :D

A buddy of mine bought it 2 days later and bled within 10 minutes. Got 5 more Izulas and will probably wrap one or two.

My P'Kal was still the nastiest biter.

Greetings to all from Canada!

Glad to see your ok and didn't need stitches at least. I've been there too, stitches and all. It jumped right out of the sheath while I was wrapping it and bit me.:D

Thank you everyone who had been bitten... The object lesson is continually being beaten into my melon... When I get my Izula, tape it whenever I do anything with the wrap...

Perhaps you meant Rite of passage? ;)

But I disagree. I have never cut myself while wrapping or unwrapping a knife. Using is another story.

Hey guy,

In MB at the moment, but moving to ON, soon. Got LOTS of family out there in White Rock, Coquitlam, Langley, Abbotsford. Hope to get out there, soon.

CHEERS!
