    Ever try one of the locking Trappers with thumb stud?

    For many years when I was growing up a Case Stockman was my go-to knife. Still have one from way back then but nowadays I'm more into single blade folders as my knife of choice.

    ^ You guys are feeding my knife habit. And I'm starting to go after all the Kershaws whenever I see 'em on sale-- so many of them are some of the best values out there in small folders these days.

    Still appreciate the old Case pocketknives, too.

    Never seen one. Is it custom?

    I don’t think it is custom. I’ve seen them online with and without pocket clips. I believe the newer ones are assisted opening too

    Not bought, but a Christmas stocking stuffer from Santa! Benchmade Hunter.

    Just purchased this Shun kitchen knife as a gift for my son. With everyone avoiding restaurants, figured he'd have more opportunity to use it.

    68 layer Damascus with a VG Max core. Sharp doesn't begin to describe it.

    What? I thought they looked very sharp? o_O The price was a little high so I had to shun them for something cheaper. :neener:

    While not a knife per se, I got my Shinbudo bokken in last week. I'll post a review after some use.

    Bestech Ornetta. This one is an ergonomic dream for me.

    When we bought our first house, my parents bought me a full set of those kitchen knives. 17 years later, they are still going strong. Amazingly resilient.

    I got a buck 110 for "Secret Santa" this year. Its a new one with green plastic sides- no metal frame so not sure they'd be scales exactly. Its got a thumb stud and a pocket clip. Its really light compared to the buck 345 I normally carry at work.
    Now, if I think about it, I may swap out my knife if we are going out. But I like the drop point better at work.

    I threw an LAPG TBFK with s35vn blade in an order to get free shipping. Showed up in two days, and it doesn't suck.

    It's a generic linerlock but grinds and function are good, steel is up a notch from D2, centers well, and no blade play. Complaints about earlier models included tip down only, too-big blade studs and crazy big flipper. They fixed the first two, but the flipper is still a dorsal fin. It and the liner lock edge may be softened slightly if they get in the way.

    I often see people talk about the blade being centered. Is this an important function thing, or just a tiny bit of OCD?

    It's probably more OCD than anything, but to me it's an indicator of the care with which a knife is constructed. I see it mentioned in videos so included it in my comments. Not a deal breaker, and often possible to tune up, but further assurance that the knife is straight, sturdy and inspires confidence.

    The 2 on the right are both newest, I can't believe I'm going to say this but the Gerber is actually decent.

    I think the only word that best describes this knife is "Breathtaking!"

    Thank you for sharing this stylish bit of knife making art!

    Yeah I’m not sure why but I really like that one. Haven’t stopped carrying it since I got it.
