    Spyderco Waterway...I can't say enough good things about the knife. The only thing I didn't like for my purposes was the clip, which I replaced with an Izula molle backing.

    It's also very fairly priced for what it is IMO...get it. :D

    Huh, being that I wear a size 14, I usually hide a knife under the insole of a shoe in my checked bags.

    No one has ever said anything though. It's just such a practical thing. It's funny because people criticize, until they need it. Except for the airport and govt buildings, I keep an SAK in my medicine bag along with a flashlight. I'm always somewhat prepared.

    I'm glad you found something decent though.

    Meanwhile, I'm loving my new Kershaw.

    Mail call... First GEn 6 hinderer and it's one hell of a knife, compared to my crossroads and it's pretty close in size surprisingly.

    That elk ridge stockman with abalone (style?) scales is one im gonna have to look out for at wallyworld. How is the quality of the scales, does it look half decent? I have been trying to get my wife to carry a knife so i gave her a Kershaw squaw creek w CF inlays, no dice, tried to give her a Spyderco dragonfly, no dice. So one day she was looking at one of my spyderpacs i had out and picked out the Wayne Goddard sprint with the burgundy scales and said she liked that one but I wasn't really wanting to give that up plus it's kind of big for her so I know she probably wasn't serious anyway and just liked the color but I know she is a sucker for Abalone so maybe she would carry that medium stockman...Its worth a shot.
    Thats sucks about the hurricane on vacation but sounds like you made it back in one piece!

    Edit: turns out it was inexpensive enough i just went ahead and grabbed one online. Hopefully she likes it!

    Was actually purchased a couple months back and as soon as I received it from the dealer it was shipped to Idaho the next day. It’s back for good now tho. Never even pocketed until tonite

    This Boker Plus trainer. Learned two things quite fast:
    1 Get a trainer before you start with a live blade, otherwise you will get cut (I don't have a sharp bali yet)
    2 Train the basic openings on a carpeted floor, you will drop the trainer several times. I have.
    I will get a live bali, just haven't decided on the model yet.

    I own the live version of that boker Bali and it offers a lot of value if you can get your hands on one. I had to buy mine from an international website as they don't sell that version in the US apparently, only the trainer here. While I think it's not so much a great flipper imo but more of an EDC with its lightweight and pocket clip it is still a great entry level bali for around 80 bucks.

    My latest acquisition from a trade

    Nice skinny slicer. Do they make these in a non flipper 3.5?

    Hi there, It is a Homer Zhu T-Rex. Just picked it up and it is a great knife so far. I believe the maker is from Japan. I'm really impressed with the quality for the relatively low price.

    Sweet. The blade shape is a bit unusual and I like that.
