Fairbairn~Sykes Fighting Knife (commonly known as the British Commando knife)

My dad always carried a gentleman type knife on him when i was young and he gave me my first knife when i was a boy. It was a Victorinox and i felt real grown up and loved it.

Hey Richard,

ja, veel ruimte heb je niet nodig maar het is wel fijn.

Ik vind het gewoon leuk om creatief aan de slag te zijn en mooie dingen te bouwen. Het kan erg moeilijk zijn om afstand te doen van iets dat je gebouwd hebt. Ik heb wel eens messen die ik alleen weg heb kunnen doen omdat de persoon die ze overnam er zo ontzettend blij mee was.

Er zijn hier op iKC verbazend weinig nederlanders. Er zijn er een paar die volledig niet actief zijn. Er zijn wel wat Nederlandse messenforums. Maar over het algemeen vind ik deze plaats op het web een stuk vriendelijker.

Mocht je ooit vragen hebben ofzo dan hoor ik het wel. Ik verwacht binnenkort trouwens een ZT801. Heb ooit ook eens een ZT302 gehad. Mooi spul maar de 302 was mij wat te lomp.
