Like my fellow blade-freak (& thrill-seekin' self-mutilator <A HREF="">BME</A>) Angelina Jolie, I am pretty obsessive about bladed/spiked objects... and I grew up in Texas which is arguably a top-notch "knife-&-gun-club" state ;)

ditto I learned how to make prison-styled "shanks" from other cons in jail fairly long ago (1990)... I'd love to have some of my dagger designs made in fractal-like Damascus Steel, "pitted" meteorite metals, sand-cast lost-wax bronze, etc.. --- º°`°º ø,¸¸,ø º ° ° º ø ¸ , ø º º ø ø º Hanuman Zhang, _Gomi no sensei_ [Master of junk] "To live is to scrounge, taking what you can in order to survive.
