    I feel like I am catching the integral bug. Lots of folks are making them with a strong showing out of China. Really great offerings from WE knives, Rike, Spyderco, Benchmade, Reate, Rassenti customs...

    What are people excited about? What’s on your buy list?

    Two for my buy list are the WE 811 Tyche and Spyderco Paysan.

    It's an awesome knife. But I do agree it is expensive.

    The only one that really interests me is the LionSteel TM1 because it is a carbon fiber integral.

    I was curious on this knife as well but what is Uddeholm Sleipner Steel? How does this compare to other steels used by Spyderco, Benchmade, etc?

    I've had a Reate Future, currently have a Liong Mah XV and I also have a new Future coming soon. I live integrals, such a clean look. A little less practical but that's ok. I'm excited for integrals in the future, like the Spyderco Paysan, and the CKF/Rassenti Satori

    It's probably most comparable to D2. It's a good steel. Holds an edge well.

    The TM1 has always been pretty interesting to me. I want to get a micarta one in hand.

    @DocJD yeah I was meaning integral in the solid piece of metal for the handle sense of the word. No screws for holding scales together.

    After buying a few integrals I'm over the novelty factor--at this point a knife being integral or not doesn't matter to me. That said, this guy remains part of my carry rotation and I think probably always will, it's a great knife:

    That's the one I'm authentically curious about as well, though if I were to grab one I'd opt for the micarta as I like it better in hand.

The Ti Dust has a one piece handle, but it is 3D printed.
