It was with My phone lol and I had a hangover Ill take some clearer photos soon :-) especially if I get the spyderco sage carbon fibre and benchmade mini grip I may be getting. By the way dont consider a tenmylle wasp they arent too good the blade shape is ok but theres a lot of blade play side to side and up and down. The oso sweet is far better just wish I had used the money I spent on the wasp on a chive instead

Just as a point of reference the 6th Fallschirmjäger division weren't ss however the 500th and 600th were ss Fallschirmjäger divisions.

But if you did have a genuine one that woman cost you a lot of money! Although being an illegal item it was a bit naughty for you to have it!

Owner7771,
By the way dont consider a tenmylle wasp they arent too good the blade shape is ok but theres a lot of blade play side to side and up and down.
Yours might be but mine is O.K. Smooth to deploy and solid lock-up. Try tightening the pivot until the blade only just deploys then back off about 1/8 to 1/4 of a turn. And you are right about the blade shape, they got it just right.
If you check you'll find that your Honeybee isn't the littlest or the cheapest in their range, that would be the Bug - blade length 33mm overall 73mm Price £6.95 then comes the Honeybee and next the Grasshopper, I've got all three and will probably buy the next up, the Kiwi in the new year. You are right about them being sharp, most Spydercos come shaving sharp from the box.

I actually got the gravity knife free from the man who it was issued to he worked on imingham docks and he was sat with me in the break room one day when my dad took me round where he worked and i listened to his stories of the war taking his perspective not putting him down. It was his reward to me for being nice to him. James your right however it was not illegal to have as when he gave me it I was 8 so not criminally responsible and it wasnt illegal to own just to be given ect. Even so the thought of it being destroyed is the worse part it should have been put into a museum. Yes though she cost me one hell of a lot of money with the collection overall as that wasnt the only rare peice in it by a long shot. The hardest to loose where a folder and a little sheath knife though which where made for me by my grandfather

Steve you are indeed right it is the middle length blade in the bug series in order bug honeybee and grasshopper. I will have to try that one on the wasp but it will have to wait till sometime in early 2012 as I dont currently have a tork or is it torx (not sure if thats the correct spelling) tool set to adjust it and I dont currently have one. A query for anyone who has a chinese kershaw do the the screws on them all look stripped or have I just got a bad one I will do a close up with my camera on the torx or however its spelled screws and post that photo oh steve is it just me or does the blade on the wasp look like a butterfly knife styled blade apart from the thumbstud of course?

it is spelled torx owner and a real bummer when a genuine piece no matter what it is
is destroyed in a petulent manner you never know you may get something like them again

I will never be able to replace them the mother of pearl handled daggers just dont come up for auction. It wouldnt suprise me if at least half of my collection ended up in police officers private collections. By the way My grandfather just made a few knives for friends and family as gifts to keep his hands busy after he retired he was not a professional bladesmith it was just a hobby for him so there was no monetry value on those 2 just the pure sentimental
