    ^ Excellent post! :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    I can absolutely relate to this, especially to the parts in bold. :) Part of being a skilled, highly productive carpenter, is having the right tool for the right job, as well as keeping focused & having good organizational skills. I too know where all of my tools are at all times....& I also leave my phone in my truck during the day. < Don't even get me started on that one!

    My addiction/need for wood working tools, kind of went hand in hand, when I got into this knife hobby...& although a carry a knife or 2 every day while I'm at work, I rarely find the need to use one, as my utility knife is the primary cutting tool I typically use.

    I hope you'll develop some more Tangram knives soon. Besides my own use, I've found the Tangram knives to make excellent gifts. The use and overall value a person can get from a knife like the Santa Fe is huge. Being able to give that to someone for less than $30 is amazing.

    Speaking of gifts, I got my wife and daughter each their favorite color of the Domin Mini. That's a really nice little knife. For some of the same reasons I like Acuto 440 at the lower price tier, I'm happy to see you using N690 in these. I'm all set on D2. I want to see more N690 in that $50-75 zone. I'd love to see it with a flipper, a deep-carry clip, and good simple ergonomics. :)

    True, it is the memory of our ancestors and flowing in our blood. It just feel right to hold it in hand. Kizer may be young but makes knives as our ancestors did, practical and just feel right in hand.

    WOW, true!! A knife is realy needed for some situation that may happen! Preparing for what may happen is a right thing to do. Especially for protecting family. But needed is not love, dont you think?

    This comes up and it's worth considering. Folding knives are often carried because they are convenient. They can do a lot of stuff. They can help you out in various emergency situations. In actual defensive encounters, they aren't great. First, you have to get them out. Then, you have to get them open. Then, you have to use them effectively. All of this could be happening in a very fast or very surprising situation. You could be hurt. You could have someone or something on top of you. You'll have to count on the knife staying open, not breaking under what could be considerable force, and in some cases, doing enough damage to reliably stop a threat.

    To see some actual defensive encounters, check out "Active Self Protection" on YouTube. (Viewer discretion is advised.) It may also be worth checking out defensive caliber comparisons on the gun forums and channels. Looking at what bullets need to accomplish may shed light on what a defensive blade needs to do. It's a lot to ask from a pocket knife. If you need a defensive tool, guns really are the best option if possible. If you want a defensive knife, fixed blade is the way to go. Which fixed blade is a whole other topic.

    Kizer has a few fixed blades. I recently missed out on a Pinkerton Lancer. Since being discontinued, Blade HQ had a big close-out sale. I think it dipped well under a hundred bucks. I literally missed it by a mouse click.
