Yeah, me too. But I've already spent waaay too much on the recent Friday sales...
Cold steel has some winners.I’m at the point where I have trouble justifying fixed blades aside from CPK, with a few exceptions (Joe Watson makes a hell of a discreet carry fixed blade, a niche Nathan hasn’t filled yet). I haven’t quite figured out my folder grail. I’ve owned most of the trendy and/or classic ones (CRK, Hinderer, Holt, Shiro, zillion Spydercos and a bunch of Benchmades etc). Demko AD-15 might be close to “the one” if I had to pick; it’s got a chunky ergonomic handle, a fidget friendly lock, and a beefy blade with a great hollow grind.
I spent a little time splitting kindling for the fire pit with the Aurora Borealis Kodiak by forum user RevolverRodger. I didn't do any chopping with it, everything was already in rounds, but it split really well. The straight grain stuff was effortless and the ones that needed a little more persuasion, it had their number too.
I saw these for sale and thought they were a great value and good looking knafe!!! I’m interested in hearing how the SK85 holds up.
