  1. Nice job with the flipper one, Capbyrd.  I thought for sure it was assisted.   I am with Oh Shoot, I want to carry a big knife.  Maybe a Spyderco Police 3.
  2. http://www.bladeforums.com/forums/showthread.php/1132909-Knife-Rights-Gets-Jump-on-2014-FL-amp-TN-Knife-Rights-Bills-Filed Here is the thread.  Have a look at Mr Critter's reply to a question.  Have a feeling that this bill will go through thanks to Knife Rights. 
  3. OK, cleaned up the first post.  Sorry about that.   Citizen_B, I would like to know what is changed from last year as well.
  4. Kniferights is going to try again.  http://www.capitol.tn.gov/Bills/108/Bill/SB1438.pdf   Tennessee Bill to Repeal Knife Restrictions Filed Tennessee State Senator Mike Bell has introduced a bill to finish the job of updating the state's knife laws. Last year Knife Rights and Senator Bell passed knife law preemption, but the effort to repeal the antiquated ban on switchblade knives and possession of knives over four inches in length failed in the House due to opposition from the Tennessee Sheriff's Association (TSA)   Knife Rights has worked very closely with the TSA Executive Director Terry Ashe to address their concerns and SB1438 is the result. We sincerely appreciate Sheriff Ashe's cooperation in coming up with a solution for the TSA's concerns while removing restrictions on law-abiding citizens. If you live, work or travel in Tennessee, please contact your state Senator and ask them to please support SB1438. You can find your Tennessee state Senator here: http://www.capitol.tn.gov/legislators/   I hope it goes through in its current state because I am tired of worring about whether a knife is 0.125" longer than 4".  Switchblade repeal is nice but I am happy with my assited openers.
  5. I have been without email due to computer problems so I just got the email yesterday.  SUPER GLAD TO HEAR SHE IS HOME!
  6. I have a friend who is a minor and he wants to know what the knife carry laws are for minors.  He knows not to take his knife to school.  But he wants to know if he can carry a knife under 4 inches.   I have been all over 
  7. Marble's with out a doubt.  I have found them to be super easy to sharpen and they hold their edge long enough to do the job.   I am mad at Ontario right now.  I got one of their cutlass machete's and the grind on it was super obtuse.  Not just the grind but I am going to have to thin blade behind the edge just so I can sharpen it.  Several hours worth of work with a file.  Yes, I should have caught the grind at the store.  I expect to sharpen any machete I buy but I don't think you should have to regrind a new machete.
  8. Words fail me.  I was just starting to think it might actually pass.
  9. You gave me a bad shock!  I thought you said: "It looks like it won't pass."
  10. Terrible confession time:  To me, the most interesting thing in thing in this thread is that paper on how to open the Startac.  Could I get a picture of it?  I would like to read it.
  11. So, do we need to write the full committee like we did the sub committee?
  12. I made a unique Email for Mr Harrison and the sent a copy to the rest of the subcommitee. Here is what I sent them:   Dear [Rep name here]     Thank you very much for hearing HB0581 in your subcommittee.   This knife bill updates the law concerning switchblades and blade length.  It also establishes statewide regulations on knife carry.    Please vote "yes" when this bill comes before your subcommittee on April 3rd.      I have heard many complaints about the knife laws here in Tennessee from residents of other states who are considering visiting or moving here.  The most common complaint is the 4 inch blade length and the fact that "blade" is not defined in TN code.   This bill deals with both issues.  As concerning switchblades, in the fiscal note attached to the bill, the Department of Corrections states that there is approximately one admission per year.  That is a very small number of arrests.  Also, it is now possible to go to almost any store that sells knives and purchase a knife that, without the aid of a spring, opens as fast as a switchblade.      Looking at these two facts leads me to believe that lifting the ban on switchblades would not increase crime.   In addition to the two aforementioned changes to the law, this bill applies knife law statewide. Thank you for your consideration, (Asmartone)
  13. I really like the way the 350 feels in hand but I have been totally unable to make myself like the recurve on the blade.  My version of the 350 is my Para 2.  BTW, if any of you guys are in Sevierville, Sevier Pawn and Loan next to the court house has a ZT 550.
  14.   I agree with you.  But it is a bit hard to cut my lunch sandwich at work with a Glock.   "I told them to cut my sandwich in half, and they didn't do it!  Oh well, *ca chack* BOOM!"
