Not made since the early ‘50’s. Only pocket cuticle nipper worthy of the name. If you are still tearing out your hangnails by the roots, check these out. The SAK MAX does not have a cuticle tool.

    Boy, oh, boy. I don't think there is one. I've passed on several "dream knives" because they were too pricey.

    If/when they make a Maxamet Shaman, I’m throwing down instantly. Not actually a massive fan of many Spyderco options, which sucks—I feel like I’m missing out—but that Shaman though? The way they contoured that G10, the compression lock, thicker blade stocker, pb washers, and just an absurd steel. Mm! Gimme!

    New re-release Microtech socom. I purchased it several days ago.

    Also did this with the G&G Hawk MUDD auto that should be delivered soon. I saw the email within minutes and sent in a deposit for my place in line, even went as far as to request early payment so I wouldn’t have to plan later.

    I like Emerson knives but don’t like 154cm....... if any of their more popular models become readily available in s35vn(not talking exclusives)

    Right now my eye has been caught by the Bark River Mini Rogue, I have the larger one, but the smaller looks handy. Plus it would not look bad on a belt around camp.

    A CF/m390 Bugout or if ZT did their own (aka: cheaper) version of the Shirogorov 111.

    No, I don't have any real "buy on sight" type knives. I wish I did, it would be nice to have that kind of enthusiasm about a knife.

    This is kinda where I fall. Not deep enough into this hobby vs my other hobbies. Love what I have and always enjoy buying and using, but no real "grail" so to speak. My must buys usually fall into the "amazing deal" from a dealer or on the exchange that is too good to pass up, often in the pseudo-impulse style of "I kinda wanted this... can't say no now!" variety. Maybe one day I will find my white whale... errr knife... :D

    Btw, I do enjoy the hell out of watching the enthusiasm of you guys finding your "one" and the ensuing pics!

    I set a cap of 100 pocket knives years ago. Now to want one I have to give one up.
    I want a lionsteel roundhead, wish I knew exactly which one, damm them, why do they all look so nice.
    A month ago, I thought I didn't want a spyderco anything, now I have 5.
    I can't be trusted to know what I want.

    Nothing specific, but I will snatch up every nice Barlow with saw cut bone handles that I run across.

    I don't have one in particular, but I would be very tempted by a LNIB ZT 301.
