• Spring cleaning sale: I've reduced prices on the BladeForums.com Logo Tshirts and PVC patches to move these out of here! We're down to sizes Large & XL on the shirts, but have plenty of every colorway left on the patches. Get them before they are gone! https://www.bladeforums.com/help/bfcmerch/
  • The search engine is not working correctly. We are aware of the problem and are working on a solution. Thank you for your patience.
  • I've implemented new password tools to try and cut down on the number of people getting their profiles compromised by reusing the same passwords that they have used elsewhere. If you are using a password that has been exposed in a data breach and is listed on haveibeenpwned.com you will get a notification to change it the next time you log in. When you choose a new password it will show you the strength; you will need a "Medium" strength or higher password for here, 8 characters or more in length.

    Thanks for your support!

Been using this for about a month as my edc. I had to regrind the entire edge but once I did I loved it. It’s very sharp, and long enough to be useful but short and thin enough to fit comfortably in my pocket. My first “tactical” knife. The handle reminds me so much of my old epees. Very lively. Darter is a good name for it.

Edit: this is the first edc I’ve ever had that I won’t let any non-knife people use. It’s way too sharp and pointy for that.

this knife is one of my earlier co-labs, can't remember from when but it feels like 10 years.
anyhow, I worked a lot with Ryan Weeks and we did a lot of different cool stuff and the best was the Pay it Forward fundraiser. The PiF knife concept had a lot of traction on Bladeforums back in the day, (before IG gained dominance over the knife community).
this is the HUK which was hunting utility knife.

busted out the Axe Wax last night to start protecting my collection and hadn't seen this one in a while

Just received a Rainier Knives Basecamp in the mail, and it's an awesome little fixed blade. It's Elmax steel, and feels really solid in the hand for being so small and light weight. 7.4" OAL and 2.68oz to be exact. Getting some major CPK vibes from the scales too. This'll be my go-to for backpacking trips.
