Rambo 1st Blood Part II Knife Review


The recent release of the new series of Rambo Knives by Master Cutlery has been an incredible success.  Still it has been hard for customers to find out specific details on each of these special knives.  Whether you refer to them as Rambo Knives, Rambo Bowie Knives or Rambo Survival Knives everyone knows what you are talking about. 


It is hard for me to contain my excitement for this recent series of Rambo knives from Master Cutlery.  In the interest of full disclosure, I do sell these knives on the Internet.  To help put my fascination with these knives in perspective, I have access to over 100 brands of knives and this is the first series where I am seriously looking at collecting each knife in the series. 


These Rambo knives have almost a cult following due to the success of the movies and the image that is portrayed for the Rambo Knife.  Even with all the demand for these Rambo Knives there still seems to be a lack of detailed information available on these knives available on the Internet.  Sure you can get the standard specs on the various Rambo knives but we have had several requests from customers for more specific information.


Here we will review the Rambo 1st Blood Part II Knife from the Master Cutlery series.


Rambo 1st Blood Part II Knife – Numbered, Signature series: This is a heavy bladed knife.  The blade is 1 7/8th inches wide, a ¼ inch thick and 10 inches long.  The blade spine features a double row of saw teeth; each row is about 3/32nds of an inch wide.  The tips of these teeth look similar to and feel like the teeth on a chain saw.  The saw teeth go to a single row on the clip point portion of the blade.  There are only 5000 of these knives being produced and each blade is stamped Rambo First Blood Part II, has the John Rambo signature and is numbered.


The guard on the Rambo 1st Blood Part II bowie knife has a Phillips screwdriver tip on one side and a standard screw driver tip on the other, along with two holes for lashing.  The black cord wrapped handle is very comfortable in your hand and will absorb moisture off you hand to help you keep a better grip when you are sweating or it is raining.  The handle is hollow and has a removable threaded butt cap that seals tight with a rubber grommet.  In the handle there is a small re-sealable plastic vial which contains matches, a fishing rig and razor blade.


The removable aluminum butt cap has a hole to hook a lanyard to.  The exposed end of the butt cap is designed with a blunted tip that can be used as an impact weapon, to break glass or pound with.  Inside the non-magnetic butt cap is a working compass.


This Rambo 1st Blood Part II Survival Knife comes with a black leather sheath with a leg tie.  The sheath is stamped Rambo 1st Blood Part II and with the John Rambo signature.  The belt loop is large enough to accommodate belts up to 3 1/4 inches wide.


Each knife comes with a certificate of authenticity.

Bread Knife Question?


I have a Wusthof bread knife with a typically thick spine (about 1/8 in.) My parents have an antique bread knife from Germany that has a much thinner spine and seems to cut bread easier. I’ve looked around for months and can’t find a thin, flexible bread knife. I bake my own bread and the big, heavy bread knives seem more difficult to use.
More specifically – are there any chefs or bakers out there who can recommend a REALLY good bread knife?

How to Bind Documents With a Velobind Hot Knife Binding System


Velobind and Surebind hot knife binding systems provide the most secure, tamper proof bind available on the market. For this reason it is the binding style of choice used by lawyers, government offices and others who need to protect the security of their documents. However, if you have never bound a document using a hot knife binding system it can be a little bit tricky to figure out. This article is designed to provide a simple step by step guide to binding documents using a hot knife Velobind or Surebind system.

1. The first step in binding a document with a hot knife Velobind binding system is to prepare your document. After you have printed the pages for your document you need to assemble any index tabs, inserts and binding covers that you intend to use with your document. You will find that it is easiest to fully assemble your documents before you start the binding process so that the documents don’t get jumbled during the punching and binding process.

2. After you have assembled your document including covers, index tabs and inserts the next step is to punch your pages. If you have a Velobind or Surebind System One you will punch your documents manually by pulling the handle. If you have a system two or system three binding machine, the punch will be electric and will be operated by the push of a button or a foot pedal. As always, it is best to punch your documents in small sections along with index tabs and covers being careful not to try and punch too many sheets at one time. Punching smaller lifts will help ensure cleaner holes, less paper jams and will prolong the life of your punch.

3. After you have finished punching your documents, you are ready to start the binding process. Velobind and Surebind hot knife strips are composed of two parts (the comb and the receiving strip). The receiving strip is a long straight rectangular piece of plastic and has either 10 or 11 holes to correspond with the number of pins on the comb. The receiving strip also has an extra smaller hole to help you align the strip on your hot knife binding machine. Using this small hole you need to place the receiving strip onto your binding machine. Then you need to take the comb and push the pins through the holes in the punched document. You then need to push the remainder of the pins through the holes in the receiving strip and into the binding machine.

4. Now that your document along with the strip is placed correctly on the machine, the final step in the binding process is to have the machine complete the bind. To bind your document, you simply lower the pressure bar onto the strip and pull the handle or press the button to complete the bind. The machine will compress the strip and weld the strip into place cutting off the pins in the process. After the machine beeps to let you know the binding process is completed you can remove your document and bind another.

The finished books bound with Velobind or Surebind hot knife systems can’t be taken apart or edited without cutting the velo binding strip. Your documents will have a tight, professional and permanent bind that is sure to give your presentations a look that you can be proud of.

Pink Appliances :)?


Okay, probably from reading my older questions about appliances you are like, “PINK!?! I JUST ANSWERES A QUESTION ABOUT TEAL ONES!!!” Well, I have came to the conclusion that I am going to use PINK appliances. Now I need some help. Are these trusted brands/products that work well:

Pink Bar Blender By Waring $69.95 (I thought that this one sounded a little to cheap, even though it is only 2-speeded)

Pink Stand Mixer (5-qt.) Artisan By KitchenAid $299.95


Pink Food Processor (12-c.) Cook for the Cure® By KitchenAid $199.95



Le Creuset

Also, are the Rachael Ray Dot over Dot, Groovy Mums, and all of those trays and bowls and stuff useful? I am planing to have people over after remodeling my house, so I need some kind of durable stuff. Oh, and do people actually use her Garbage Bowl? They look useful, but then I think, “Would I remeber to actually USE it?” Thanks!
Also, could you tell me some websites to get pink appliances besides The Food Network Store and Williams-Sonoma?
