I can dig it. Nice
Got my new Amalgam in. An interesting knife, to be sure:
Delicas? Ew, can't stand them. LOL
I bet. Wink
On vacation in Pigeon Forge for my anniversary last week, we HAD to stop by the local knife store while in town. My wife surprised me with a new SHF, which was waiting at customer service, as soon as we got there, so I no longer felt the "need" for an expensive purchase for myself, but I did still bring money to spend, and I couldn't leave the "largest knife store" without buying something, so I bought a few small gifts for others, (bantams, rat II's, keychains, etc), and did wind up with these 2 little ladies and a gent for myself...
Was eyeballing these Ruger hollow points for a while, but CRKT + Ruger made in China made me hesitate, however I must say, being able to handle them in person before buying, I was pleasantly surprised, (and being able to hand pick the one with best blade centering was a nice bonus). I opted for the smallest version since I realized I already have a bunch of larger knives, (incl. now another SHF), so a new small pocket clip knife was better suited into rounding out my overall collection.
I also picked up a new Ontario machete not pictured, so all in all, I gotta say it was a pretty great trip, and very cool experience to walk around that place seeing and handling so many knives in person instead of online shopping.
Just picked up my first Half Track. It is a perfect match with my XM...
Two cheapish knives. The Steel Will Shaula is great for around $50, has a softer detent than I’d like but I’ll get used to it. I was impressed with the black Natrix I have so decided to get one of the XL versions. It’s on par with its little brother.
Just got this Spyderco Mantra 2 and hit it with a heat ano.
The two latest. Having a hard time deciding which I like better.
Placed my order this week for the Olamic WhipperSnapper with this build, added some extra stuff,
I have the prototype of this exact knife in my pocket right this second!! You're going to love it.
In fact, that's my knife in the picture.
I got the wharny, which one do you have?, I wasnt sure on the blade but looks like the wharny has a slimmer carry profile, would love some input on the blade, thanks
The knife that's in that picture is the one that's in my pocket, so I have that blade shape. I bought this knife at BLADE this year back in June. It's VERY sharp, and pretty thin behind the edge, so I've never had an issue cutting anything with it. It carries very slim in the pocket, though the pocket clip is rather on the thin side, feeling slightly delicate. It fits my hand perfectly, and in my estimation, the Whippersnapper is essentially a slightly bigger Busker.
Here's a better shot of the blade shape:
Great knife I absolutely love mine !
