I've got a really nice cold steel fixed blade tanto, about...six to eight inches, nice leather sheathe...gift from a guy who's no longer around.
Its illegal to carry, and I wouldn't take it to afghanistan. Bottom line is if I'm using a knife in war, everything and then some has gone really, really fucking wrong.
Besides, why do I need a knife when I can just pull guard?

I'll remember that Mtripp !!
There is an SF guy who is going to law school with me right now. Told me he always had a fixblade, smaller folder, leatherman tool, and cold steel tomahawk for breaching and breaking stuff.
I dunno if he was just trying to be badass but sounded like just nice to have those tools with him. I suspect you can't do that as a grunt in the marine corps

I know you capitalize Marine Corps, pig.
I've heard of guys wearing skull masks and **** like that. I'm sure if I wanted a tomohawk, I'd be able to carry one. But still, it just seems gay.

Tomahawk's tell people you mean business. Everyone carrys a gun. It's not *that* intimidating when people have been shoving them in local's faces for the last 9 years.
If you happen to chat someone up and you happen to be holding a tomahawk or it's relatively close by and in view, people are a bit more personable with you. It still has that intimate, he's gonna stab me?, wtf effect.
Also nice for breaching and messing up people's houses and ****. Or swinging at the meat eating wasps.You are not free whose liberty is won by the rigour of other, more righteous souls.

I've also found that a rifle really doesn't faze anyone over there. Pull out something sharp, though...
