    I was wondering how long you have been carrying your Police model. The one you can deploy in milliseconds. Or do you swap out for a new one each year? Just wondering. Thanks.

    It was a Military that got insta-deployed in an upstairs hallway at Golden in August/99 on my tour of the KeenFactory. Butt I have no doubt that Sal could flick many of his "babies" into action in expeditious fashion. [​IMG]

    Well maybe thats what I'm thinking of. I know Mr. Glesser has said before that he does "test" new knives. But I thought there might be one that he has carried for awhile. Just wondering.

    Blades - All things considered, The Military works best for me in deployment. A "broken in" model is a tad easier. I have 1 Military in serrations and 1 in plain. I trade off. The Police is also easier. My current Police carry is a G10 flat ground plain edge. Both the Military and the Police are not "deep pocket" carry, which also makes a difference. I generally don't "trade them out". Just keep the same pieces until I change to a "new" regular carry.

    Yeah...the Military rides high enough to get a quick grab on it... So Sal, your knife drawing skills are like, legendary, how do you do it exactly? you pull the hole in the blade or what? We should get a mpeg or something of Sal drawing his knife!

    I wonder if Jesse James felt the same way? [​IMG]

    Thanks Sal. I was just wondering. And your right(as usual) practice does help.

    From what I've heard, a mpeg wouldn't be fast enough to capture the movement. [​IMG] It's like a humming birds wings. You know there moving, just can't see it. [​IMG]
