    Smile One year of Bladeforums...


    ADVERTISEMENT
    Well, I've been a Bladeforums member for a year as of yesterday, so I thought I'd share some pics of the knives I bought and thoughts on the past year...
    Sorry about the crappy photos, lighting sucked.

    1. Spyderco Military's are addictive:



    From top, clockwise:

    Brown G10, CTS-XHP Sprint
    Black G10, S30V Regular Production
    Carbon Fiber, BG42 Sprint
    Orange G10, S30V Limited Production
    Carbon Fiber, M390 Sprint
    Fluted Titanium, S30V Limited Production

    2. Actually, Spydies in general are addictive



    Top to bottom:

    Grasshopper
    Dragonfly 2, British Racing Green FRN in ZDP-189 <-----Amazing weight, ergos are great on such a small (but capable) blade.
    Paramilitary 2, Grey G10, CTS-20CP Sprint <-----Primary EDC, amazing ergos with great blade steel.

    3. A challenger appears...Kershaw...



    Top to bottom:

    Tilt
    Leek Composite blade
    Leek G10 handles, S30V <----- Rotating between the two Leeks right now.
    Blur, S30V
    On right:
    Kershaw Skyline <----First good knife; thin, light, high on value.

    4. Fixed blades and the Lone Ranger, er, Farmer



    Top to bottom:

    Victorinox Farmer <----- Excellent outdoor SAK, Alox handles feel and look great.
    Becker BK14 <----- Arguably the best small fixed blade for the price.
    Swamp Rat Rodent 4 <------ Love everything about this knife, ergos, looks, steel, size, everything.

    I've learned more about knives in one year on here than I ever thought. From companies, to knifemakers, to specific knife models, blade steels, sharpening, and more. And I met some pretty cool people along the way. Thanks BFC, here's to another year.

    That's a pretty impressive collection for just one year.

    You've got the sickness bad. Chasing those sprint runs can be quite challenging and addicting as well as hard on the bank account.

    Holy Stanley, Mother of Obama!!!
    Up for trade: A new in pouch RAT TRAP, one of the last to "roll" off the assembly line. Would like to trade towards, an XM-18 3.5 Spanto flipper, an RCC, or a Crusader Forge Metro Tactical, a Fat Warden, or?. Users fine. Drop me a PM if interested, or to tell me I'm crazy.

    Congratulations on the first year of collecting! Hopefully it will be the first of many!
    Nice collection!

    I to am approaching my one year anniversary of my blade forums account (a few months to go still)
    I'm curious to see how many knives I have acquired over the past year....

    Congrats on the year. Your photos should be used to answer all the "What knife should I get" threads. Great variety of quality knives!

    I tried a couple; the mini-grip, the 741 Onslaught, and a 705. They really weren't my cup of tea and they were sold. I like the Axis lock, but disliked the lack of G10 and FFG on the mini-grip. The Onslaught was cool-looking with a great blade grind, but was pretty hefty as well, and just never gravitated towards it because of it. The 705 I liked, and I kinda regret getting rid of that one.

    I like the way you displayed the Spyderco Militarys.
