It would be nice if it were to at least get a temp tack.

From the prices in the catalog.....if you donate, lets say 25 bucks, that purchases a knife for $25 bucks. Now the same knife if you and I want to order is will cost us $43 bucks. You get the idea.

I do know about the "need", but nothing wrong with covering every angle.

Question 2: Is there really a strong need for additional knives for soldiers and Marines? edit-most guys in the military I know seem to have more knives than a ginsu chef..


I'm just wondering if the money going to this is going to a legitimate need in a way that best helps out people in the military.



I was wondering the same thing when I was reading the SMKW pages. Most of the knives that SMNW sells for under $60.00 are imported from China (Frost Cutlery) and they are cheap. I wouldn't send one to a soldier.

Someone somewhere is making some profit. IMHO

+1

They do have some nice items at their store but most are cheap, junk. I'm sure they're not loosing money.
