    I've told this one before but since we shutting down gonna say it again. I was at Sunset had fought Friday and Saturday. Lost one fight each day. Sunday I met the entry that had won Friday and Saturday. He had won 3 on Sunday. I bought the kern knife 30 minutes before the fight. When we met I told him "I'm sorry." He said what you sorry about? I old him he's meeting the Ultimate Rooster. He laughed and said we'll see. We pitted and I went and got the Ultimate roster off a dead cock that was nearly cut in half. The guy told me that was the Ultimate Rooster.

    We have 2 kinds of slasher knives. Lightweight good for the stag derbies.
    and a little heavy. Good for cock derbies. The lengths should be 31/2 to 4”. Too long knives is at disadvantage when the battle takes long and belt to belt. Long knive are good for early flies. But a quick draw should be just exact length on the ground.

    IMHE.

    When you meet them long skinny pi knives with a tbolt or whatever dont take long to see the difference now if I had little short legged roosters I might see them not using it good.now days you see high station roosters with long legs that can use them 4.5 no problem.id say pi lk has the advantage just like a Mexican sk has a advantage over our American socket sk just my opinion form past experience

    Of that 4 inch knife how much is actually doing the damage?? I would doubt that most Roosters are burying it to the hub?

    I always liked a Tbolt Wide B about 3.5. Was in attendance once at a show that a guy was using those Filipino fork LKs on his birds and everyone was giving a little ribbing about it. Solo 6-0, won a few that his bird was completely out of position or looked to be beat to the punch but some how and with very little action he would walk out carrying a winner. He had a knowledgeable man tying for him too. Mighta just been his day, one bird in particular looked like his feet were tied together on the drop, stumbled around and still scored cleanly.

    When they break up pretty good and you see one reach out and the other birds head touches his own ass as he’s yanked to the other bird, you can rest assured all 4” was used. Lol. True enough, not all can swing it, especially if it goes back to the ground fight.

    Was at Springbrook way back when. Oscar was pitting in the clean-up LK. 3 cock. He won 3 in a row so easy it was pathetic...lol. Had a big LK on and one out of the three snagged the other cock in mid air and they did a complete twist upside down counter clockwise and oscars bird was facing him when the come to the ground still hung. They pulled it and it was over. Pretty neat to see that one.

    styles makes fights...longer knife length does not always mean an advantage over the opponent.

    I believe this 100%. A true ace on point could win with a rusty nail.
