Later, when my best friend from my first Team died - I got his knife (he had the sense to get one) and the SF Museum graciously allowed his serial number to be shared by both of us once I established my bona-fides with them.
Now, backing into one in the manner in which I did, I wish I had gotten a serialized one sooner as well as a less collectible non serialized for beating around.
I've heard of goof-balls breaking them and seems they eventually get around to admitting to *battoning* with them which I feel has less to do with the activity itself and more to do with doing it incorrectly.
The weight/heft for the size is nothing short of BRILLIANT for me though I'd have preferred a flat, pounding pommel over the fighting angle... for a field knife.
I could do without the serration though do not on necessarily find them detrimental. They do get through a 3/8 rope quite nicely.
The sheath, while well made would NEVER have gone to the field with me as-is. The material is not loud to scratch against as many synthetics and kydex sheaths are but DAMN.... that mile of velcro!
I'd like the pouch smaller - along the lines of a classic Leatherman but it's a small matter.
The rebated handle material is another point of brilliance in my opinion. What may look un-finished or badly applied is in fact just this side of perfect.
It was a smart move on his part to come to the U.S.
I'm looking at one listed elsewhere for a little over 3 bills. Trying to decide if I want to throw a bid on it or another knife.
Like you, I've wanted a CR knife for a long time and I'm trying to decide on it. Anyone else have a say?
We had a funny thing in the Demo course about the issued *demo knives*. One great instructor, noting we'd likely like to keep our issued knives, pointed out that we could either buy some cheap turn-in at a pawn shop or simply point out to the supply-geek that the knives were in fact *expendable* and do a one-sheet statement of loss - if even that.
Demanding a Spyderco folder that they are almost certain to not re-issue is the height.... or depth of chicken-pooh!
I like your sheath without the pouch like mine has. Yours is much trimmer and more purposeful looking.
And yeah, let your wife take the pictures from now on.
I just got the little brother today!
That's a Spartan Enyo instead of a CR. More of a friend of the family than a "little brother".
The exposed tang is rounded off pretty well, it doesnt seem to be a problem for me.
Good to hear. Knives with finger grooves are usually better suited for some folks' idea of knife fighting than actual work.
