Hey folks, This post doesn't involve the law of self-defense, but was so purely awesome I felt compelled to share it with you.

I came across this video at the fantastic blog, "No Lawyers, Only Guns & Money", and I am "stealing" it to post here.  But seriously, check out their blog, it's just great.

Anyway, here we have a young man, Trooper Stan W. Scott, from the No. 3 Army Commandos, Second World War, who kindly takes a moment to instruct us on the proper use of the Fairbairn-Sykes Fighting Knife.

Good stuff, check it out:

Thanks, Trooper, for "keeping it real"--and for your service.
