    I'll be honest, my Blurs and Leeks (the ones in 14C28N) all hold an edge better than my Zaan. I love the knife, am not at all impressed with the steel. It seems to be on par with my CRKT Aus 8 and low end Gerber/Winchester beaters. I occasionally debate selling it at a loss, but it is a beautifully made knife.

  10. I have been on a Spyderco kick lately. Before that it was Benchmade. I only have my Mini Grip left and have since sold all my Benchmades. So far this year I have bough:

    Ka-Bar Dozier folder
    Spyderco Dragonfly
    Spyderco Delica 4 FFG x2

    I've been on a Kershaw spree lately, but the Spyderco Southard is calling my name.... I'll probably wait til production catches up with demand though, maybe the price will fall to $200 or so.

    Something I'm almost ashamed of. It's a Boker, it's AUS8, and it's really, really nice!

    Boker Burnley Kwaiken, just came out a month or so ago I believe. Great fit and finish, IKBS, very slim and comfortable, nice lines. Solid lock up, no blade play, opens fast and smooth. First thing I did when I took it out of the box was to take it apart and hit the frame with the bench grinder, exposing the blade tang to be used as a flipper. Neat little mod that takes all of five minutes, and greatly improves the usability of the knife. I'll clean it up tomorrow with some 400 grit. The blade was perfectly centered when I got it, it's just a hair off after taking it apart, but I should be able to adjust it back to center without any problems once I'm done cleaning up the frame where I modded it.

    Never thought I'd spend ninety bucks on AUS8, but it's well worth it!

    Me too, I was apprehensive after I ordered it, but now that it's here I'm very pleased.
     
  17. Another FrankenLeek on the exchange? :supergrin:

    Yep, gotta keep the extra parts knives from piling up somehow, I'd be neck deep in Leeks and Blurs if I didn't get rid of 'em :rofl:
     
  19. Just picked this up... Absolutely beautiful.
