As do I ! Currently 36 degrees with freezing rain turning into 4 to 5 inches of snow starting within the hour and temps dropping to the 20’s.Fortunately I’m on vacation so all I have to do is look out the window and think wow it looks cold out there
Thanks, guys. Always fun to share a knife that gets a warm reception.
ktataragasi, thanks for the kind words and the comment. I’ve been fortunate to stumble my way into a handful of knives that I truly enjoy and suspect will be long-term “keepers”. Lol, but for every one that makes it into my rotation, there’s another knife sitting in my drawer that makes me wonder wtf I was thinking when I placed the order. I guess that’s all part of the learning curve...figuring out what we like and don’t like and what suits us best; and while I feel I’m finally nailing down my preferences, it’s been a painfully expensive process. Until I stop making those crazy impulse purchases and learn to stick to the styles and materials that work for me, I feel like I still have a lot to learn. I guess it’s in that regard that this all still feels relatively new to me. Fortunately, I’ve pretty much exhausted my “hobby” funds at this point, so it’s time to get back to learning how to care for and sharpen the knives I’ve acquired....and to once and for all put an end to that “new guy balls-out buying binge monkey” that’s been on my back these past few months, lol.
Google is your friend and all the enablers here are your best friends
I think you will be ok with a Medford Slipjoint which is what I believe it is but someone please chime in if I’m wrong. As far as Medford frame locks which I’ve had many and they take very very long to break in and I guarantee your thumb will break first lol. They are built like tanks and will last many life times but take a horrible amount of time to break in with some experiencing horrible lock stick during that process “ frame locks” that is mainly because the lockbar is titaniumI’m good with both...it’s when I upset my wallet that bothers me.
Seriously though, I like the looks of the MGJ more than the CRK Impinda. I feel like slapping myself just for saying that.
If I pull the trigger, it better have amazing W&T and great fit, finish and tolerances.
I have zero experience with Medford...this is the first and only Medford I’ve been slightly interested in.
