I've been looking for the UC 'Rambo IV' movie version Mick but they seem to be extremely thin on the ground even in the USA and and very pricey too when you consider that we have to pay a lot more in £s than they are in $s with shipping etc. a MC would do at a push I suppose as it's gonna be a user and I'm not keen on the Condor.

Never mind Ross, I've got a pair of them already but they could well go missing if Herself finds out how much I'm thinking of spending on a knockabout mahoosive 'knife'. :D
