I just received my new pro tech Godson (Maple burl handle/satin blade) and I must say this is one sweet blade. The opening mechanism is superb...fast and smooth. The feel is solid but light weight with a real air of quality to it. This is definately the crowning jewel of my budding collection. I would have loved to have a knife like this when I was younger. I guess the best thing about getting older is being able to buy better toys. Does anyone know off hand the laws in oregon and Washington. The guy at the knife shop told me I can carry it as long as it is exposed (not that I would carry this gem anyway).
