They came out some years ago during the Buck bayonet period when Co's were competing to supply the armed forces. Some can be found but don't know if they are even still in business.And welecome to the forums Dredger.

I sure hope that you have a license to fish for knives, and have the correct punch-card.

That's what I do with knives I don't like: throw 'em into a river.

I'm reminded of a post I saw a couple of years ago. Some guy took a knife into a shop to have it cleaned up, refurbished, etc. The knife cleaner guy asked where he found it, at the bottom of a river? Yes, it turns out it was on the body of his dead brother who was fished out of a river.

Moral of the story: Don't ask questions.

So keep fishing that hole. There's no telling what else might be down there.

Even a man who is pure in heart,
And says his prayers by night,
Can find that he and his knife may part,
When the moon is shining bright.

He still hasn't told us what he used as bait.

Besides the bait, I wanna know how much of a fight it put up!!!
Did it stand on its tang and try to throw the hook?
How long did it take to land it?
And what Lb test line was you using?
