That's a sweet looking knife. I ain't paying 90 bucks for AUS-8 steel though.
I'm not saying you should use an M1A for home defense, but I'm also not saying you shouldn't.

    I want one of their UK-SPF daggers.

    I've got a couple of Blackhawk's knives in my collection. They're pretty good. The Tatang is the best of the lot, IMO. 1085 steel, double-edged from the factory; well balanced and alive in the hand. Good sub-hilt if needed. It makes a wicked fighter/outdoor knife.

    I modded mine a little. Blued, etched, convexed and stippled.

    Pfft.  What is up with the "Government Restrictions" warning?

    Those are some good looking blades.  I really dig the lines.
