    ^I'm still a little upset with myself I didn't get the recent one in W2 w/ tiffany blue... I looked at it for maybe 24 hours and then it vanished :eek:;)

    that was a really beautiful piece, and looked darn effective for the kitchen too

    this weeks in 8670 looked like it would double as an effective cleaver

    did anybody here get the recluse? please share some pictures once you get it, that handle was the highlight of Friday's sale in my opinion!

    your wife clearly must have good taste in knives :)

    8670 doesn't patina as nice as 26c3 IMO (disclaimer: I am a little obsessed with the spicy white)

    it doesn't seem super crazy sensitive to patina, less like w2 and more like a2. my experience is pretty limited though. I have read it patinas slower than 5160, but personally have no idea.

    my runt in 8670, which has only seen its leather sheath, perspiration and packaging gunk so far, is developing a nice gradual blue-grey-ish patina

    Need more Snowbills. After using one at trackrock, I can say that’s a fine knife design in the hand. I’m hearing the call of another group buy.

    Yes, I like the Snowbill, too. It seems to fit my hand very well. I bought one just to try it. Now that I know I like it I'll be looking for a special one.

    On the Snowbill I agree 100% on the way it feels in hand!

    Couldn't help myself a few weeks ago. It just looked like it fit so well in hand during the sale preview. It feels as good as it looked like it would!
