    At Walmart today doing some shopping and low and behold a knife i been eying for quite some time was on clearance. After i put my eyeballs back in their sockets i got my wallet out and for a mere $20 each i bought the last two.

    I am very satisfied though my eyes are still sore.

    Great price, indeed. Congrats on the cool find. I gotta check my Wally World after work! I own one, but another would be nice.

    What's the date on them puppies?

    Oh and i plan on using a little Neets Foot oil on the leather to darken the sheath and grip.

    Checked my 3 area Walmarts. 2 had one each both at the $38.94 price. So i figured one more would bring the price of each knife to $26. So i’m like WTH and got another one.
    Great gift possibility. Or i can have one in each car and one in my bugout bag? Lol
    Darn forgot i need one in the shower!!

    I wish mine was a limited production one that didn't have the saw back and sharpened swedge. I live in an "EVIL DAGGER!" state and mine's limited to slaying envelopes and opening cooking packages.

    Sorry to hear that. I’m guessing its a state I don’t intend on ever visiting. You should move.

    Great find. Excellent price. I don’t currently own one but that’s a knife that really brings back some good memories. Awesome camping and woods walking knife. I’ve also cut a lot of fishing bait with one.

    Ended up buying 6 as i went back to the beachside Walmart and they had put their last two on clearance for $30. Gave two, one each to my two sons. Everyone should have at least one survival knife don’t you think?
