    Just wanted to give you guys a heads up that I'm selling a Kershaw Avalanche and a Ka-Bar New-in-Box.

    As you may know from my other thread, I just ordered a benchmade for my car so I don't need a 2nd Avalanche. And as for the Ka-Bar, my grandfather hooked me up with his old USMC that just needs some TLC to the blade.

    Anyways I know these are highly regarded in most everyones opinion and talked a lot about on the board, and I think I'm selling them at a good price, so this is just a heads up.

    Kershaw Avalanche - http://forums.offtopic.com/showthread.php?t=1244462
    $79.99 SHIPPED.

    Ka-Bar - http://forums.offtopic.com/showthread.php?t=1244441
    $69.99 SHIPPED

    BOTH NEW IN BOX.

    Pic's (more in the threads):

    Is the avalance a tanto blade? Hard to tell from the little icon on the box, the pic is at kind of a weird angle.

    man, if it were the 1570 ST, you'd have yourself a potential taker. i used my kabar last night to chop down political campaign signs from the last election here.

    no the avalanche isn't a tanto blade, they don't make the avalanche w/ that style blade -- one blade only

    :squint: no serrations is WAY easier to sharpen, and if you have to stab anything it is easier to pull out ;)

    easier to sharpen, sure. but easier to pull out? a police officer acquaintance of mine used to carry a non-serrated blade for that reason. then he stabbed someone one day in a struggle, because he couldn't get to his pistol. right in the sternum. even after the guy went down, he was putting one foot on his chest, trying to pull the knife out and still couldn't. they had to remove it at the hospital. now he carries a serrated knife so that he can actually cut things, like zip ties, rope, etc.

    well yeah, it is easier to pull out, but that's not really saying it's easy. it's the same principle as my ka-bar i use for stripping deer meat, you'd never want a serrated for that because the serrations snag on bone and muscle. but i def. see what you're saying. although my uncle is a police officer and all their auto's are un-serrated for that purpose. i'm pretty sure they use kershaw (personal/dept.) and benchmade's (department)

    Sorry, I was thinking of the Tactical Blur. Great looking knife.
