    That’s a Infiniti Q50s. It seems like I’m always in there waiting for my better half to get ready so I snap photos of what I have on me.

    This one came in the mail today -- an LNIB G&G Hawk RAZR (Rotate At Zero Resistance). I don't really see G&G Hawk knives as great lookers but the action ... oh my God the action.

    [​IMG]

    The trapezoidal cutout on the scales exposes the slider which actuates the Hawk lock.

    There are generally mixed feelings about the Hawk's pocket clip. I typically love them. This one is the grippiest version that I've come across -- it has teeth that really want to hold onto my torn-up jeans pocket. I tried to get a pic:

    The designs definitely aren't for everybody, but as a mechanical geek I can appreciate each and every knife they made, sure they might not be the most practical or sensible things they might come up with nor the simplest solution to a small problem, but who cares if it's neat and fun to tinker with. But then again I'm German, like to come up with prototypes at work and they usually work but are often more complicated than the they need to be. :rolleyes::D

    The new Stedemon compliments the Tighe nicely ;)

    How do you like the THUNDERFURY™ ? Such an 80's name for a knife. I was tempted for a moment, but I am so so about Stedemon and availability in Europe is meh at best.

    At full retail, it's got some issues that would have really bugged me but I got a good deal after the pass around ended so it was worth it to me. Lightened up the detent a smidge, softened the flipper tab jimping and cut a detent ramp to make closing easier... really like it now. Definitely more of a stabber than a slicer (.125" about a 1/4" behind the edge), but nice grinds to a zero edge. The only real bummer is they didn't keep the double edge from the prototype:(.

    That's a shame about the lack of a double edge, it was one of the neatest features. Glad I didn't go for one, at least not at the price it would have been (Shipping+Tax+Retail price) If I win the lottery I'll go for a Brian Nadeau Arch Nemesis to quench the folding dagger desire.
