My girl bought me a gang unit knife for Christmas. It is the usual above excellent quality that I have come to expect from OST. After inspecting it and getting a feel for the knife, a couple of questions come to mind. Other than the pictures of Gabe demonstrating its use on the OST website, what are the other uses for this knife. Because of the design of the blade it looks like it is best used like you would use a razor knife. Is it good for stabbing, slashing or strictly to be used like a razor knife? Thanks!

Its good for cutting cheese and tomatoes too. Just kidding...although it is true. It is a grab it hard and stab kind of knife. Either forward or reverse grip...edge in or out. While it can in fact be used like a box cutter, it is best used in the prison style (stab them hard fast and continuously).

I just got mine and have spent yesterday and today with it. It is quite functional in all grips. It is currently being worn anti appendix OWB carry method will change for various applications. The weight and how it fills the palm is something I liked right off the bat.

I have been carrying mine the same way for now. I also like how it fills your palm and seems to really want to stay in place in your hand. I was really surprised at the thickness of the steel, its really built to last forever.

I concur on the build quality. It feels like it would be at home grab'n and stab'n or doing fine detail work on a deer.

every time I hold mine all I can think of is poking some BG in the eyes with a quick finger strike and slashing his face in half...straight down from top to bottom...then going horizontal with a back slash either opening his throat or slashing both his wrists as he clutches each side of his newly-separated face.

Then it's the clutch and shank method with multiple vertical jabs to the taint and the balls with that highly effective Wharncliff-shaped and conspicuously thickened blade.

Excuse me for a minute ladies and gents....I forgot to take my meds....
