The Right Tool For the Job...

Every tool has its place in the toolbox. Like this:


Cold Steel FGX Boot Blade II, from their Nightshade series. It's a lightweight (~1 oz.), fiberglass-backed plastic knife that I picked up through Amazon (to score their free SuperSaver shipping, of course). The concept is appealing - a lightweight, nearly indestructible last-ditch tool that can be hidden anywhere, and will resist pretty much everything that it's likely to face. Tucked into the back pocket of swim trunks, here's a blade that can spend the day at the beach and not rust, grind shut from sand, or cost a lot to replace if it falls out...

And with an MSRP of $13 (significantly less at Amazon!), there's no reason not to have a half-dozen of these little beauties "just in case"...

That is all.s

Well, if you live in NY there is a reason, they are illegal since they are double edged. Then again so too are wrist rocket style sling shots. NY sucks!

Illegal in TX also for the same double edge rule.

I have, and carry in certain environments, a Backie Collins assisted folder that uses beryliun copper springs, the body and blade are made from similiar stuff as your dagger. Very reassuring at times.Oh, nice score by the way!

I debate that it falls into the "double-edged" category because it's not really a "blade"...

Thanks for telling us about these. The whole series looks interesting. (Plots, checks wallet, looks around furtively to see whether Miss D. has seen this yet . . . )
