    The knives that Glock produces and sells... is there any military force that issues/ uses them, or they just produced for the civilian market??

    I have seen a few of them while on deployment, I carried one myself.

    To my knowledge, the only army that issues them is the Austrian army.

    It is a good knife, the handle doesn't have the heft of a K-bar, but it's still a good knife. Now, since I am retired, I have to find someone to pass it on to-the problem is that I have only one knife and three protoges to choose between.

    If you get one, you won't be disappointed. I recommend the non-serrated top one myself.

    I have a couple of them, got them for free from GSSF for working their matches. They are about as useless to me as a Kabar. Well, the Glock knives have a bottle opener, that can be handy. I have owned them for a few years and still haven't found a use for them yet. Other than that, (which is a personal problem) they aren't bad for the price.

    That is how I aquired mine as well.

    It is a decent knife for the money. It isn't anything fancy, but it makes a good beater knife. Beats the hell out of a sharp stick.

    I am confused by this thread. I have a KaBar on my hip every day and I use it a couple dozen times a day. From prying to opening things to extending my reach...

    Anyway, I have a Glock knife with the root saw and I like it because I can hook it to my fishing tackle fag bag and not worry about the water messing anything up. It is easy to draw and sheath and is quite durable. I would not use it for EDC, though... I like the heft of my Kabar. The shank of the Glock is a tad thick, IMO, also.

    A guy posted about a Glock folder, I think Glock should listen. They already market a fixed blade, so a folder should be easy. Hey, Kel-Tec makes one.

    Here's an Austrian lady putting on her make-up before going to some kind of a party, with a Glock knife and mirror in her hand. I believe her belt buckle is another Glock product.

    Interesting wristwatches. They remind me of a Polar heart rate monitor.
