    In the market for a sword cane? https://www.midwayusa.com/product/1017272516?pid=795848
    Seems like a great deal on the Knife Center SOG terminus above.
    I noticed Wal-mart had their holiday packages of knives and multi-tools on display. These can be useful for gifting to non-knife people or stashing in car or shop.

    Careful about Wal-Mart products. I did a T&E a couple years ago and lock engagement was good on only about 60% of their folders. Giving a gift that isn't safe isn't a good deal. Look them over carefully.

    I just ordered a knife from these people. Most items are on sale now for 20% off.

    It's a Swiss company, but shipping on the knife I ordered was only $8 and change, free shipping on orders over $130.

    Nice selection of all Swiss brands and others, they are an authorized dealer for everything they carry, and say they order direct from factory so no counterfeits.

    They also will engrave on the scales of Swiss Army Knives free.

    Bradford knives has 20% off today 11/26 only. I believe this is the only sale they do.

    I ordered a full flat grind G3 this morning.

    My intentions are pure. I'm just trying to save a few folks some money.

    :D

    Here is the BladeHQ cyber Monday sale link: https://www.bladehq.com/cat--Holiday-Gift-Guide--393?utm_source=email-broadcast&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=11-28-21-bhq-cybermon-sale&utm_content=2021-BlackFriday-GAW-NOshipping-Mobile

    Knife Center claims 3,500 items marked down: https://www.knifecenter.com/listing/cyber-monday-sale?sortType=dateDe

    I don't see anything new at ol' Smoky but that's probably best with 4 on the way. I hate finding the stuff I bought yesterday on sale today!

    You almost got me to buy another knife. I held off for now.

    I keep telling myself I don't need any more knives, but sometimes myself doesn't listen.

    I agree absolutely. Knives don't take up much space, and never have we had such an abundance of useful tools at such reasonable prices. Yes, many are made in China, and I am getting better at giving those a pass, but many come from Taiwan, Europe and USA too.
    I need to step up my gifting program! :D

    I really like my D2 Dozier and have a scary edge on it.

    I’m going to add an orange Dozier for field use.

    One of SMKW's daily deals on Dec 24 is the Becker Campanion selling for $70. If you are looking for a sturdy US made knife, you could do worse. https://www.smkw.com/kabar-becker-campanion

    Dangit, when will I learn? SMKW has about 29 pages of knives, many 20% off, here: https://www.smkw.com/specials/site-busters?product_list_order=most_viewed&trk_msg=10M21OERQ7N4F0LGU7QJULA2RC&trk_contact=FTVOQ2NCP7UDM0AC3T4JL81VJO&trk_sid=J3KK61EJ7K5DMLU63NEA9ELASG&trk_link=26NL8S3VISGKTD6PTCES9PF1L8&utm_source=Listrak&utm_medium=Email&utm_term=Year-End+Blowout+Sale!&utm_campaign=20211016_XMAS-Catalog-Email&utm_content=20211016_XMAS-Catalog-Email Many of these are stocking stuffer types, or maybe an inexpensive first knife for a young one you know. There were a few nuggets in there too, unfortunately.

    Me, I can stop any time I want. After my ESEE 6 arrives, anyway.

    I wouldn't recommend a knife without a dependable lock for a first knife.

    Lockbacks were scarce in 1958, at least in my part of the world. So we learned to work with slip joints, and to respect their frailties. The upside is that even a lockback failure nowdays is unlikely to hurt us, because keeping pressure off the spine is as automatic as muzzle control.
    Linerlocks are everywhere now, but not 100% reliable and any failure there can be painful.

    My young ones were taught to drive with a manual transmission too.
