    Affordable flashlight quality / longevity

    I have to agree with Lenny. The Baton rocks for output and UI.

    Do you use an outdoor fixed blade in the kitchen?

    Bark River Fox River and Kephart see a lot of kitchen duty here. The thin Kephart is a slicer and dicer.

    Where/how do you store the majority of your knives?

    I have a Spyderco 18 knife holder and a Benchmade 6 knife holder, both full. The rest are in a few cigar boxes. I rotate all my knives every few weeks or so.

    Why are Spyderco knives so ugly?

    To each his own I guess. I've been staring at my Sage for a while now and can see nothing ugly about it:confused:

    Off to a great start. My advice, don't allow someone you despise to live rent free in your head.

    ESEE folks, handle preference?

    I'm perfectly satisfied with the stock scales on my 3 and 6. Being the cheapo that I am, I never wanted to spend the extra $$ on custom scales. The 6 is a great knife and I'm sure you will enjoy its many attributes.

    ESSE 6 necessary if I already have the 4?

    The question should be Is the ESSE 4 necessary if I have the 6? The answer would be no, its that good...IMO:D

    Tip up or Tip down

    All the above plus one more thought. Dedicate your pocket of choice to knife only. No keys, marbles, no challenge coins. You get the idea.

    What watch do you wear?

    purchased this one around 1981. Used it diving for decades. Had it to 175 feet in a quarry. Still runs great. Sorry for the bad reflections.

    Owning one pocket knife

    Once upon a time I was a one knife guy but then I discovered this forum and have been chasing the holy grail since then. I would have been content with that one knife (Buck 110) Thank you internet:(

    OPINEL. Which "larger" one should I consider for next purchase ?

    I have a couple #8's. Also have a couple #9's, carbon and s/s. I much prefer the 9 in carbon. I agree with kobold, it's the sweet spot.

    Recommendation? Is a Rat 1 still worth it today?

    When the knife first became available it was priced at $60. I went ahead and bought one and shortly thereafter $30 became the norm:( At $30 it's a good deal and the AUS-8 is just fine, absolutely worth it.
