Hello fellow BF members, a retired engineer and architect here.
I have carried various folding knives during my working years (Schrade, Smith & Wesson, and Buck).
Now we live in a retirement community and my wife and I have a kitchen and garage replete with cutting implements.
So I’m asking myself “Do I still need to carry a knife?”
Well the answer for me is “Yes, I do, one that is light weight, light-duty, and easy to operate aged-handed”.
So I recently acquired two new Spyderco knives: a Dragonfly 2 and a Para 3 (both LW) that meet my requirements nicely.
However, even though my “requirements are met”, I’m about ready to click the order button on a Manix 2 LW.
Maybe a Native 5 also…
And our Focus ST really needs a Spyderco Rescue Assist (Orange) for his console box…
And then there’s the Mazda, feeling left out…
Oh, and we do live by a big lake, might need some Salt versions too…
I missed that directive. This is a William Henry B-15 Titan (Tom Brown) Tracker that has been modified with Gold plated hardware, jeweled buttons, a SanMai ZDP-189 Damascus blade, an anodize job, and a pocket clip. Original knife was quite ordinary.I thought we all agreed on name and maker for given pics !
