I recently attended a Gun & Knife Show, no offense intended to all the great dealers on the net, but I had to see some knives in person. Wow the MOD series are a bunch of minis! Too small for my taste and I was so set on buying one from a pic. These may be high quality knives but I'll spend the extra $30 and buy a full size Socom every time! Anyone see the new Dalton knockoff of the Halo. Dalton knives are incredible but I wouldn't want this new side cocking front opening tactical to go off in my pocket...ouch! Sorry, didn't catch the name of it, I only know I havn't seen any posts on it. Interesting design but seems like it would get clogged with all kind of debris and the exposed spring just looks a little too fragile. On the other hand the new Dalton California style was quite impressive...almost bought it for my wife. But she'd probably cut herself by hitting the button just pulling it out of her pocket or purse. Walked away with a steel on a Socom and Spyderco alum. cricket for the wife. After all Tony(MT) was there in person!
