    This one was my dad's, and it was very heavily used. Bark River refurbished it for me last year, and it's perfect again. Definitely makes me smile:

    Cold Steel mega folders all day long. They're like a cartoon brought to life! Not real practical for my real uses, but just so great!

    My father carried this Klein 44034 everyday for 15-20 years, and this Buck 425 was the first pocket knife he ever gave to me. Every day that I see them, I think of him and smile.

    Nice taste, Spyder!

    Sometimes; waving a knife out of the pocket is easier with a lanyard in my experience.

    For big smile, BM LFK. For cool smile, I guess S90V Military

    Just about all moderately well made knives make me smile. Big fixed blades knives give me a silly grin.

    Yeah, I think it's a case of he got someone's safe queen and is trying to sell it as new. Not that atypical around here with some knives.....

    I will eventually break down and get one of those. I am a sucker for tools that prioritize function over aesthetics. The total lack of sophistication has a charm of its own.

    For me it's my BM mini grip. There's just some thing about a coated blade that shows all the marks and scratches. Like what have you cut, slashed or pryed open. kinda badge of honor.
