EDC For CCW: Extrema Ratio BF3 Dark Talon

Image: Extrema Ratio

“An Italian knife that isn’t a stiletto switchblade? Surely you jest!”

No, I’m deadly serious. And don’t call me Shirley. Not many Americans have heard of Extrema Ratio, but they represent the high end of Italian-made tactical knives. The BF3, or ‘Basic Folder 3’ is a perfect example. Make the jump over to The Truth About Knives for the full story. And no, you don’t have to CCW a Mossy 500 Marine model!

    “And no, you don’t have to CCW a Mossy 500 Marine model!”

    But how cool would it be if I did???

    1. avatar Russ Bixby says:

      It’d be cool if you could.

        Seems like you’d need REALLY big pants to pull that off. “One waist size up from normal” probably wouldn’t cut it.

        You would be the circus clown car of CCW if you could pull it off, though.

      Guitar case.

      Get some of those warm-up pants with the snaps up the leg. But you’ll walk with a severe limp.

    What’s “EDC?”

      Every Day Carry.

  3. avatar AlphaGeek says:

    Am I the only one who looked at the shotgun and instinctively recited “buck, buck, slug, slug, buck” like it was mine and I had to reinforce memory of the reload order?

    Training: it kicks in at the oddest times…

    1. avatar PavePusher says:

      Every time I see one, for me…

      But I do “Buck, buck, slug, buck, buck, slug, buck, buck, slug”.

        Buckshotty red no slug backs

      Holy targets, Batman. That’s the first thing I did. Then I mentally switched their location.

    Normally using “jump” in a blog means there’s a link…

  5. avatar Ardent says:

    I really like the looks of this knife. . . it’s vicious! However it doesn’t appear that it would stand up to much in the way of work or rough handling. Around here knives get pressed into all sorts of duty and need to be both tough and inexpensive enough to be easily replaced (certainly less than $50 for an EDC).
