    The venerable 710. Always a good choice. I have a user that's partially serrated with, I think ATS-34 steel. Tough knife. I also have one just like yours - M2HS - brand new in the box. I liked the original one, but regretted the partial serrations so I bought the, then new, M2 steel version. Then things changed and I seldom carried a knife that big and when I did, I just carried the original one, so the M2 never got used :rolleyes:

    That’s pretty nice, Mike! I carried this one a good bit when I used to work. Not so much these last 10 years. They are good knives even though I think I would like it better if it wasn’t a recurve.

    It's a Para 3 Lightweight... with a Lynch titanium clip and a back spacer added.
    For me, those two easy modifications make it the perfect EDC Modern.
    The clip is way better looking and much more sturdy than the wire clip that comes with it.
    I hated the plastic stand-offs, made the knife look cheap, so the back spacer hides those and i think it's become more rigid and attractive.

    Thank you. Yeah I think I am just starting to appreciate the materials in traditionals a bit more and to be honest I just love the patina and character they take on. They also offer a lot of utility in a small package.

    They are aluminum scales by aimfront on etsy.

    Thanks, Les. I think it's Devin Thomas SS Spirograph damascus.
    I like the San Mai blade on that Mcusta! Nice pair there!

    These are two of my favorite knives to carry. The 35 F&F has great utility with the one arm man, liner locking wharny and flathead/pry. The Bean, well it's just fun to flip around :D
