Pocket knives have made an impact in our society and are an important part of our daily lives. Ever since man had crafted the folding knife, we have seen everything from simple handmade knives made on a farm for general purpose work to pearl handled gentleman knives that were carried by those distinguished to carry them. The creation of the modern slip joint really has an incredible history and the craftsmanship in them is amazing. Granted these days the market is flooded with models produced over seas that don’t even come close to the craftsmanship of homemade designs, there are some things that cannot be mass produced. I may be talking about classic pocket knives, but let’s take a different angle on modern slip joints. Everyone has heard of, or has at one time owned a "Case" or a "Schrade" and we all have a place in our hearts for American cutlery companies, but one company beats them all hands down when it comes to quality and fit/finish.
Through all the years I have been reading and participating in the internet forums, I cant count how many times people have laughed at and made fun of a Swiss-Army-Knife. There are comments about its cheap and/or soft steel, its size is no match for the big burly tac-folders, its delicate and could never hope to compete with a decent large fixed blade. Probably the worst thing is that I was one of those people years ago. I would readily laugh at the “Swiss thingy with a corkscrew”.
The sun peaked over the nearby hill as we made our way to the river. I could
hear the water rushing past rocks just through the trees and I could smell the
moisture that promised cool clean water. As we came out into an opening in the
trees, I could see a stream of crystal clear water bubbling past, heading to an
unknown location many miles away. Ahh, it was going to be a good day.
Good news! We switched SOSAKOnline to a faster, bigger and more
reliable server so there should be an increase in speed. I have been
noticing (and enjoying!) it all day!
The bad news is that no change ever goes smoothly, and we have
temporarily lost the items from all the stores. If you are interested
in making a purchase, please e-mail Tim, Tom, or myself with any
requests until we get it sorted out.
Thanks for the understanding!
