    Probably my Vallotton Sebenza conversion, followed closely by the new Diskin Revolution

    Surprisingly it’s a pretty good piercer Martin. I’m really digging this SpydieChef. :thumbsup::)

    Uncovsky’s use of laser to achieve his patterns, texture, and engraving really impresses me.

    I dig the old school hard chrome finish on my CQC-12 Comrade. It was designed to be like an AK-47 bayonet.

    mine's about 4 years old and it's in my pocket almost every day. It ticks all the boxes, even if it is a little weird looking

    The very first "high end" work knife I ever bought was this Vallotton & Diskin collab...great work knife:thumbsup::D Definitely sparked my "sneaky switchblade" obsession...

    I usually carry a fixed blade but often a folder as a second blade or occasionally solo, but here's my current folder rotation. It's a bit heavier than normal so I probably need to purge a few pieces soon.

    Love it. Smooth with a design that is modern and classic at the same time. I've had it a while now and it locks up early with no play or lock slip. I did have the detent ball pop out early on and Enrique was great to work with getting a new one installed and had it turned back around to me in a couple of days. He said he'd never had that happen before and I believe him because it's been perfect since and I've never heard other reports of it happening.

    CRK Large Carbon Fiber Insingo, number 100.
    I’ve generally carried CRK’s for about 15 years but this’ll be the one that I carry for a while, I really like the knife.
