    I've been talking myself outa getting this ever since they first came out .

    IMO , the most iconic of CS folders .

    With CS future in question and spied a great deal ...could just no longer resist !

    Smart Buy! :thumbsup: I have the G10 not fancy version on the fondling table right now.

    Did you splurge and get the fancy polished one? Because I was thinking of doing that...

    Brand new G10 , AUS10 for ~ $123 !

    Otherwise , probably wouldn't have .

    Cheap enough that I'll guiltlessly take it out my trail hikes and use like a machete . :cool::thumbsup:

    That's a sweet deal! The stonewash finish on the blade is a feature I like quite a bit.

    Enjoy!

    Congrats man. Definitely a fun knife to own. Can’t say your trouser and shirt pockets will be too happy about it though. :D

    Congrats, I've got the little one coming soon the one with the 5-1/2" blade. I've been thinking about this one as well, what a giant knife should be fun.

    Is the large (5.5 inch blade) something that will still fit in jean or shorts pocket. I can't believe I'm debating getting one lol.

    My 5.5" Vaquero fits in my front pocket no problem, so I doubt that the Espada would be any different.

    Yeah , I carried that size for years . But you do need to devote one whole pocket and give yourself some time to adapt to the feel .

    The XL fits in a front pocket of all my pants, the large fits with room to spare.

    Same here. :thumbsup:Mine should be in today or tomorrow. The largie that I talked myself out of for the longest time was the Spartan. I grabbed that a couple of months ago. Played with it, tossed it in the tub. I appreciate it for what it is, more or less.

    I felt the same way and had to order a Magnum Tanto XII.
    Pure bliss. A second one will be on the way soon.
