sounds a lot like the "clubs" we made up when we were ten years old....no real purpose, they don't really do anything....but it can be a reason for people to get together and have a fellowship of sorts...
It doesn't really seem to be all that different from those kinds of clubs. The idea is evidently supposed to be to bring back or maintain the old Warrior's Code, chivalry, etc.. If everyone in the group takes that stuff seriously, then it's probably a pretty good group. However, a bunch of guys are likely to join just to get the memers only t-shirt, the special edition Emerson OBS knife, and a chance to attend whatever Emerson/OBS stuff they have at the Blade show and other knife shows and forum functions.
I'm skeptical of any organization that anyone can join if they'll just give their name, t-shirt size, and $45, even if I agree with what they stand for. You never know, though. One day I might regret not getting in on the ground floor of the OBS.
I won't, that shit is basically the corporate policies of sartinco industries.
