Condor now makes Old Hickory knives.

I dunno how long that's been the case. I got a couple of their paring knives. It only took half a dozen strokes on the stone and as many more on the steel to get the sort of edge that I find most useful. Made a couple of quickie sheaths, enough for the drawer, out of strips of cardboard. Just let the knives slide their own way into the corrugations. Take about 5 seconds per sheath. A guy showed me that trick about 50 years ago, for use on broadhead hunting arrows. Garand wouldnt know to remove such a sheath before shooting. :-) He's like the morons who just "assume" that i'd have to make the entire 2000 sq ft of netting possible on the Alone show (out of the tarps and hammock) before putting ANY of it into the water. It certainly would never occur to him to use such netting to catch waterfowl.

Why is everyone "stupid" or "morons" except you? Take a good look at your accomplishment's for the last 69 years. Pretty pitiful.

You have to unsheath your kitchen paring knives before you can go shooting? Interesting.

Cardboard holsters are the new thing. Try not to get them wet, however.

it's just a kitchen knife, punk. The reference was to broadheads, Who makes a nice sheath for every broadhead? certainly not you.

To be expected I guess - It's the first week of the month, so you've got a fresh welfare check and freshly-filled prescriptions of govt-provided hallucinogens. As I've repeated ad nauseum - if you'd be polite, John, so would I.

You've repeatedly and publicly described yourself as both physically disabled (bulging discs and bad knees), and drug-dependent since at least 2012 (tramodol and ambien being your "life-savers" that allow you to function) - a guy who has publicly stated that he surrendered himself to a meter maid when in his prime; and now at nearly 70 years old, calling me a punk (over the internet, no less) because the fresh infusion of govt-provided drugs is making him feel tough. That's precious.

John - please, just be nice. We could actually have some decent conversations if you'd let go of the juvenile anger and bitterness. Life is sometimes unfair, and you should get past it. I've lost my mom, my dad, and four of my six kids. I'm watching my wife struggle daily now with stage-four terminal cancer. It can make a person angry, which is totally natural and understandable. But adults learn to get past the tantrum phase and focus on the things they can do something about; because wallowing, whining and moaning about things we can't control has no positive outcome, just negative. And negative hasn't worked out particularly well for you over the last 40 years.

Cardboard is a good way to dull your broadheads.

Totally unnecessary, since there are plenty of storage cases for broadheads out there.

plus, can keep them on arrows in a decent arrow case without worrying about them.

Heck, the containers most broad heads come in can be used for storage.

all of which are better then cardboard.

Why go cheap on storing broadheads? The ones I use run about $40 for three. I'm not going to make them less effective by sticking them into cardboard.

I have a set of three that are strictly used for practice and tuning my bow after a string change. The rest are cared for and kept sharp.

My hunting arrows cost me about $30.00 each when I consider the costs of the broadhead, the shafts, the fletching, and the nocks. I'm not going to half-ass the storage or care for them.

It's ok to use field expedient solutions when required, but to start out that way is, simply put, stupid.

I'd like to know if the twit is talking about broad heads or kitchen knives?

He seems to be jumping between the two.

It's 2019 modern ways to carry broad heads and arrows with them attached.

I won't even post a pic of an old open top leather quiver....geez how many centuries or eons has that idea been around. Thousands of working examples.

And who would use moisture loving cardboard in the field for anything?

Well, yeah. I mean I keep my broadheads in the case they come in. Snap nicely into place, don't rattle around, etc, and if they are mounted, sure keep them in the sheath.

Cardboard? Quickest way to dull any blade.

If you are going to use carbon steel kitchen knives, coat them in oil or lard after washing and they'll be fine. Cardboard attracts moisture and will rust them in no time.
