    Enzo trapper underrated ?

    I have a D2 Trapper that I bought as just a plain blade about five years ago. It's a great knife. I made some blasted canvas micarta scales and a kydex sheath for it and carry it in my back pocket. Their D2 holds it's edge really well and I haven't had any trouble with chipping. I did get a...

    How many knives do you EDC?

    I always carry a folder clipped in my pocket and sometimes carry a SAK as well. Plus I keep a multi tool (generally a Swiss Tool Spirit) in my backpack.

    Buying secondhand knives

    I bought my first Victorinox alox Soldier in 2009 and it instantly became one of my favorite knives. I bought another one right away with the intention of keeping it in the box because they had just been discontinued. I later lost the original one (I found it though a few months later) so I...

    Best or Favorite Multi Tool

    My favs are the Swiss Tool Spirit followed by the original large Swiss Tool. I like the Vic multi tools because they have dedicated screw drivers instead of a bit driver and separate bits and they have scissors. I also like the blunt serrated blade in the Spirit for quick and dirty cuts (I...

    What Knife Do You Have Coming?

    All black Spyderco Para 2. I preordered it and was told it should be here "hopefully pretty soon". Whatever that means.

    Emersons - worth this price? (relax not one of those threads)

    The VAT in Europe really kills you. I know how it is. I just moved back to the States from being in Europe for seven years. But no. A 154cm liner lock is not worth $278. I don't care who's name is on it.

    Benchmade AXIS lock

    520 is awesome! Buy one! But in all seriousness the springs in my 520 are still going strong after 6 years. I have 5 other axis knives and have not had any problems with the locks. Regarding the blade play it's just like any other knife that has a pivot. If you like a really easy free...

    My first EDC. Benchmade Presidio 520 or Griptilian 551 ???

    When you think that the 525 only has a 1/2" shorter blade and 5/8" shorter handle the difference in material used isn't very much hence only a $25 difference in price. It drives me a little crazy when other knife companys charge up to $100 or more for an extra inch of metal! If you live in a...

    My first EDC. Benchmade Presidio 520 or Griptilian 551 ???

    The 940/943 have aluminum handles with S30V steel. Still stainless, holds an edge a little better than 154CM and isn't too hard to sharpen. These are the same length as the Presidio but much more slim. They ride a little more comfortably in the pocket but they won't take the same abuse as the...

    My first EDC. Benchmade Presidio 520 or Griptilian 551 ???

    The 520 is my favorite knife so if the weight doesn't bother you I'd go with the Presidio. From my experience cutting performance between the two is pretty much the same. The 520 is much more burly than the Grip. The handle is far more substantial and the blade stock is a little thicker. It...

    Benchmade 5000 Auto Presidio

    Not making an offer but FYI Benchmade doesn't require the box or paperwork for warrenty work. Just email or phone them. The warrenty also stays with the knife and you don't need to be the original owner for a warrenty claim.

    What is the most expensive knife you bought that you didn't like?

    Strider PT CC. On paper it was perfect but the execution of the finished product was extremely lacking. The edge was way too thick and obtuse for a knife like the PT, it was like something off an issued KBAR. Compounded by lock bar over travel from the factory and a very bad customer service...

    I have a large Benchmade Ritter Grip in S30V and a FFG Spyderco Delica 4 in VG10 for trade. Both have black handles, uncoated blades and are used. Delica has been lightly used and is in good condition with only a little wear on the pocket clip. The Ritter has seen a little more pocket time but...
