    Just has a look through the Queen catalog as well. Wow but they've cut down their lines, they're barely doing half of what they had last year and a lot of nice stuff gone. Why on earth they're doing a 420hc line I don't know.

    It's a shame. I've seen some nice items come by, and why they stopped making them is beyond me. As will add the 420hc thing. I don't see the point

    They did in 2011. Same owners as the Ontario knife company. But that doesn't explain the more recent changes.

    I think that technically they are owned by another company, mother daughter style. That's what I read anyway.

    But you might be right, which is bad news.

    Speaking of bad news, I can't seem to load any page except my own thread. What's up with that? I don't have a need to see pictures of my own edc.

    During my absence, where I had crippling deadlines, things have allegedly happened, and people are reacting to that. Or so say the whispers.

    So because of that, and general laziness, to whomever reads this and is considering leaving this place due to those events (of which I know very little, so, no judging) I expect a pm from you with contract information so that we can have coffee/beers/high fives/knife talk if I'm ever in the neighbourhood.

    It's a thing, apparently, and I'm getting with it.

    You missed the waiver, didn't you... It happens. Section 2 Article 6. Happiness is not guaranteed.

    I agree, you don't. We all think you should work harder to improve the amenities around here... ;)

    Hasn't Ontario knife company been around for a long time now ?

    Of time permits it, surely. I'm more apt in the worded forum activities than in the visual ones. But I'll post something soon, promise!

    Okc has been around since 1889 or something. Mostly military stuff, but like I said, they've been bought (years back, I believe) by another company who keeps the brand alive, more or less. They seem to be doing alright compared to other companies who have another owner though.

    Thanks for the clarification. I knew they'd been around for some time, didn't realize it was that long though.

    Sharp², bright, empty (wallet :p), uneven key/tool ratio, scarf.

    I still can't seem to get comfortable taking gear pics on the train with all the people staring at me like I've lost my marbles.

    I confess, I googled it. They were mostly a military supplier from what I understand. Still need to get me one of those air force survival knives. It has the Rambo factor that the 10 year old in me can't resist
