Lets get a knife thread going, didn't see any relevant threads dedicated solely to knives.
Post some of your recent purchases or knives you are looking forward to.
I just recently ordered the blue Bugout 535 and a translucent g-10 handle like in the pic for when it gets here in a few days.

Benchmade has the most restrictive MAP pricing in the knife business.

Both Spyderco Delica/Endura and the Mini-Grip/Griptilian used to be priced nearly identically 10 years ago: around $50-60. In the present day, Delicas/Enduras are around $75-80 while the cheapest Mini-Grip is $100+ for the exact same knife. You can't really blame it on inflation. It's just Benchmade being greedy jews (ironically they're more Jewish than the actual company founded by a Jew). There was a big shitstorm about it on knife-related forums around 2013 when Benchmade first implemented MAP.

Karambits are utility knives that people mistakenly think are combat knives because of video games and movies. Teenagers and mall ninjas hyped them up because of this, which led to counter shitposting. Now people see the shitposts and believe them to be fact because they don't know better.

Functionally, karambits have the same advantage as other inward curving blades. Inward curving blades draw material into the edge. This is very useful for cutting certain kinds of slipper material that would slide off the edge of a conventional knife, ex. certain types of vines or synthetic rope (hence why you often see the blade shape in pruning and maritime knives).

The karambit also has the bonus of a ring. The ring lets you hold onto the knife easier without dropping it. You could use both hands to do something without having to put the knife down. For example, rice farmers would use the karambit to harvest rice stalks. The ring would allow them to tie the stalks into bundles without having to put down or sheathe the knife.

Combatively, they were only really used because it's what people had on them, not that they were super death ninja knives to begin with. Outside of some extremely niche uses, karambits don't really offer much for combat that you can't get elsewhere.

While they are kind of a meme knife, I still like them and have owned a few.

Yes, lots of people moved to the US from here and some even ship their own cars here when they come back home to visit for longer periods of time. Most things should also be very accessible (hotels, food, whatever) for the average person on a holiday and there's lots of beautiful nature to see. But for what you're interested in, just make sure you don't hook up with the wrong people unless you have a good local lawyer here, and of course if you're not sure you'll get robbed/shot like an idiot.

>Day One:

Fuck this. The hurricane has come to New Orleans. I’m woken from a deep, alcohol induced slumber by a loud banging on my door. A note on our backpackers’ hostel fridge tells us that there is a mandatory evacuation of the city. “Don’t worry”, says the scribble, “Hurricanes in New Orleans means party time.”

Me and the other travellers are being bused to the city’s huge sports arena, the Superdome. Once there, it’s chaos. People are collapsing all around. When the rain starts, the swelling crowd screams. Although I’m with Rob, another student, I feel panicky.

I’m searched for guns and drugs before I go inside. There are 12,000 of us here – mostly poor black families.

Not our fault, blame the kikes that brought all the niggers here on slave ships in the 1700 and 1800s. We're still dealing w it.

America is divided between civilized white areas and areas of no-go zones mostly in major cities where feral blacks shoot each other over kool-aid and chicken.

Suppressors increase the length of the felt recoil impulse, resulting in a softer felt recoil. They also reduce the blast and concussion of the shot being fired, making a prs match much more plesant. Both recoil reduction and sound modulation reduce the "flinch factor" of shooting magnum rounds like .300winmag and fast rounds like 6mmPRC.

We have the technology, so why not use it?

If you run a brake mount, with the can on you will have more recoil. A well made can will generally be slightly more accurate, as well as getting a few more fps.

Since 22LR lose velocity after 19 inches, I've found it's mostly about sight radius. It's easier to accurately shoot an iron sighted rifle with a very long barrel even if you lose a few ft/s.

I like the 92fs more. HPs have a smooth pull, but a vague wall and reset while also not being that light. The 92fs has a heavy DA and reasonable SA, like a typical combat trigger. You can clean the 92fs up nicely with a D hammer spring though.

Couldn't you just take another nano machine and program it to only eat and copy from the first set?
Then you effectively just made a disease that the host is physically incapable of evolving an immunity to. The bigger the colony of nano machines, the faster the second set would spread.
I don't think you would ever reach 100% destruction of the the first set, but it would be held in constant limbo, flaring up and dying off, just like biological systems already do.

>Is it possible for there to be an advancement in shield/armour technology that would make ballistic ammunition impractical?
not really, tanks are the closest you will get to impervious armor on the battle field, and they are still vulnerable to ballistic threats in the form of the APDS rounds.
As for body armor the amount of armor needed to cover a soldier in order to be impervious to all small caliber weapons would weigh so much the soldier would barely be able to move.
The only technologies that would make such armor practical from what I have seen would be either a powered exoskeleton, or the development of continuous sheets of graphene. The exoskeleton is straight forward enough, but we don't have a viable power source for it that is compact and light weight, Graphene would be another route but it can only be made in microscopic particles so far, and much larger sheets would be needed for this armor.
>>
It would have to be a powered suit, able to detect and eliminate projectiles before impact, or generating an opposing force equal to or greater than the forces acting upon it, without allowing the force or opposing forces to affect whatever the armor is protecting. At that point, it's no longer considered armor so much as a countermeasure.

Traditional armor would be impractical. Someone could drop a regular oldinert 155 round from 10 feet above and it could easily kill a man. That's not even considering the momentum of the 43 kg shell dropping from it's maximum ordinate is enough to send the round through 50cm of concrete.
Then there's the 7kg of TNT in the HE shell under all that steel in the real ones to deal with.

Fortunately those projectiles move relatively slow. There are those that are a bit more difficult to anticipate and counter, such as depleted uranium antimaterial projectiles, or armor piercing incendiary, or grenade projectiles, especially the ones with shaped charges.
>>
Well, you need to consider the cost and practicality of new and interesting armors. Is hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of mechanical legs to support hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of new special snowflake plate worth the life of a boot? At some point, it’s easer and cheaper to train new men than it will be to equip them with super armoer.

Why are third world navies satisfied with using drones instead of helicopters for their patrol boats/ anti piracy boats? US Coast Guards use helicopters, why can't other nations do it too? It seems only China can have parity with America because they also use helicopters on ships that are used for maritime patrol.
