    Last week I made a post saying that I had lost my Kershaw chive that I had for 10 years. I did not think that I would be so upset about losing this knife. I guess having it with me every day for 10 years got me really attached to it. While looking for a replacement I came across this community and decided to sign up. In my original thread JustinWatts made a very generous offer to send me his Chive that he no longer used. This was an extremely generous offer and I wanted to make this post to thank him for it. Thanks Justin!

    This appears to be a great community and I am still trying to figure out if I fit in here. I am not a knife collector. I had that same Chive for over 10 years and never even thought about needing other knives. I didn't even know that people collected these things. That being said, I did develop some interest in a few other knives while shopping for that replacement. I really liked the slightly larger size (than the chive) of the Scallion and the Kryo. I also checked out a Spyderco black Tenacious but I don't seem to like those larger 3 inch knives. Boy was that thing smooth though. It opened nicely and just felt nice. If I keep hanging around here I could see me being tempted by something else. For now though, I think I will stick to my old faithful Chive from Justin.

    Thanks for the knife Justin and thanks to everyone else for the welcome!

    Glad I could help, the knife will definitely appreciate some use. It's absolutely okay to only use one knife, just be glad you aren't dropping hundreds of dollars a week on new blades. :grumpy:

    Am I in the minority in liking blades shorter than 3 inches? Are there any great knifes in the 2-2.5 inch range?

    I would not say that you are in the minority, but your wallet is in trouble now. There are hundreds, perhaps thousands of great knives out there that fit your needs. I personally have few knives below 3 inches so I am not up on specific names of such. All of the major names offer them though. Benchmade,Boker, Buck, Cold Steel, Kershaw, Spyderco etc to name a few. Welcome to the forums and Good Luck!

    If you liked the Tenacious except for the blade length check out the Persistence by Spyderco. Pretty much the same knife just a bit smaller, 2 7/8" blade if I recall correctly.

    Thanks. I will check this out. I am glad to hear that there might be a few great smaller knives out there.

    lots of great folders under 3" for edc. Benchmade mini-ritter & spyderco chaparral are 2 of my favorites.
