lol Yea it seems one of those contingencies is likely to occur as of late. On another note I had heard that Microtechs knife quality had diminished since their facility transfer to another state though I have not received my new scarab to confirm or deny these statements based on a personal comparison with my older unit. Anyway... How do you like that hardware though? I've been looking at those rifles but I'm not sure if i want to pick on up.
My MSAR has been perfect. It has quickly become my favorite - accurate, handles and points well and totally reliable. I am by no means a knife expert but I do own a Busse and an ER folder and MT knife seems just as strong as my Busse Satin Jack - and very, very sharp (but I haven't really used it, I just stare at it)
