Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! A week or so ago I ordered my first Chris Reeve knife, the Umnumzaan. On day one, i disliked one thing about the knife, the lanyard, I had never had a knife with a laynard attached. I ordered the second backspacer kit (Norvox mod?) from Chris Reeve the same day I received the knife. I told myself I would give the knife two weeks, and try it like Chris Reeve intended. I didn't make it two weeks. I pulled the knife out of my pocket tonight by the lanyard, needless to say it hit carpet, bounced, and hit the metal legs on my desk chair, pot metal I believe. And that moment, I took the knife apart and added the second backspacer. Thankful carpet took the initial blow, and thankful for cheap pot metal chair legs. I looked over the knife for 5 minutes, no marks. Thankful it didn't land on concrete, and thankful I had the second backspacer kit ready to go. The knife will be a user, edc, hopefully for many years to come, but that first drop made me jump about 3 feet off the ground. Ugh!
