I have the green and metallic scaled versions as well. I love that its made in America, has great lines akin to the Spydercos, which I really like. It is only 30 dollars and can be found at any Walmart. I know its not made of the most premium steel but mine has performed very well. I love it.

Yes, it's Chinese. I believe it is a unique design, though. So please don't crucify me.

I was so worried about carrying such a small blade, I carried a backup while I evaluated it. I'm down to just this one, and the anxiety is gone. She gets the job done.

Yeah you were full, Sam. Have a good cigar today? Those inexpensive Ronson torch lighters are great buys. Nice blades too.

I like the design on that sleek little knife...great color on the scales as well, Gloob.

Everyone should have the means of starting a fire and a knife on their person whenever possible.

Nice cigars...my regulars are the Parodis dry cured cheroots.

I like that neck knife...not familiar with the make/model.

Yup. The laminate construction is fascinating.

-That laminate is very interesting, to be sure. What are the two materials?


-The "cheapos" can be jewels I like some of the UCs fancy designs...I had a nicely faux jeweled one I lost years ago....still miss it.

-I love the leathermen....I have a multitool I've had for 20 years and going strong.

-Kershaw makes some great designs...the finger flipper is quite convenient. Nice knife.

Kershaw Thermite clipped to strong side pocket. FourSevens QTL [Quark Tactical single (R)CR123] on the key ring, Nitecore IFD2 clipped to the weakside pocket.

The Thermite has replaced several more expensive folders as my edc, since I bought it a couple months ago. It was purchased to "try out" Kershaw's semi-low priced Chinese made frame locks. Obviously they're quite a value.

Ug...how goes your experiences with the Spydercos? Did you get resolution re: the problem areas?

Have not heard of the Thermite.

Which coldsteel knife?


I had one of their push daggers years ago and really liked the design...nice sharp edge and a semi-false edge on the reverse.

This Frankenknife :-)

bought it on eBay for 1$ many moons ago. It`s an old Solingen fishing folder,
that apparently got a new blade welded to it. It´s carbonsteel,
sharpens faily easy and serves as my office knife.
(we haz a gas bbq on the terrace :-) )

The Sardinian resolza has been getting a lot of carry and use. I'm getting very impressed by friction folders.


I've also been carrying my dad's old Christy knife just for the nostalgia factor, but it is a handy little sucker.

Timberline/SwissBianco Neck Angel - G-10 and 440 stainless laminate. Very light and very easy to carry as a result. No need for "better" steel since it isn't going to be used for heavy work.
