    Life has been hectic, partly my own doing, partly everything going on. I got a check I wasn't expecting when I got home from springfield yesterday. So this morning before work I went to my favorite little local knife store and bought myself some prezzies. I got a BK5, 15, 13, and 2 Spartan Helmet beads (gotta go back for one more). Then lo-and-behold I'm tooling around online and I see Mooseman's new sig and click that (another big mistake) and procure myself a saber ground unmolested PPR-16 (hence needing another bead).

    I don't have the 16 yet so no pics of that.

    I was pretty disappointed though with the 13, when I opened the package it looks like someone slipped with the grinder![​IMG]

    However they seemed to put the jimping on the top of the blade JUST where my thumb hits so THAT was pretty awesome!

    I bought it from Moose. He had it for sale. (I just hope it isn't the broken one!)

    Lovely new toys you have there. A shopping spree always seems to help. :)

    Nice haul, bud. I've got a 15 on the way from Moose. Got some saint cutlery G10 waiting on her. I'm stoked.

    Actually I just figured out how to carry my Tarp for camping without taking room. Put it on as a rain cover while humping in.

    The funny part, my sister bought 2 Wustof knives today for the kitchen, she spent twice as much as me and I trust my knives a whole hell of a lot more!

    Oh, don't get me wrong I do love some German cutlery as well. I also love the Shun knife I used at work, at least once I cut the weight off the pommel.
