well well what's this? hmmm... what say you Sir Rustyblade? Only if you sell the old one! It has been said before: you don't know what RAD truly is until you go straight. So many makes, so many sizes, grinds, finishes, points, and that's just the blades. Then there is the scales... :shock: Remember...

sal, as long as you are a part of this forum you will never achieve true fidelity. Way too much temptation. If you break your fidelity though I will lobby the admins to remove your custom title. :lol: Technically, if he replaces his US 58 TV for an English 58 TV and maintains fidelity with the Engl...

Second, the first person to say " 58 TV" gets the fish. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v390/GJoeH/fishslap.gif :twisted: ahem, i believe i said: 'fifty-eight'...where's Sam? i need...

Sal, I never knew the red-tips or the 58TV came in Rocket versions until this thread...with that said though... I personally think the US versions of both look better. Does anyone here have a English 58TV or English red-tip to give us a comparisons to their U.S. brethren. well that makes me feel a ...

i'd say you have two of the razors i was going to recommend already the L1 injector is terrific and same with the Tech! i love those two. in addition, why not check out a flared tip super speed just to see if you like the flared end to hold, like i found out. aside from that, maybe a super adjustabl...
