    I suppose I can take the 176 off my list and add this.

    Hopefully it can satisfy my boot knife backup requirement for the time being :supergrin:

    Be careful carrying it in this state. TX has pretty sorry knife laws.

    Not planning on carrying it, just a project.

    And yeah, our knife laws are freaking retarded. San Antonio really takes the cake though :upeyes:

    A week long San Antonio trip a few years back is what let me justify a Spyderco Kumo, as I didn't (and still don't) have any non locking folders :supergrin:

    Nothing fancy. It's the Cold Steel Counter Tac II.

    The big allure for me using it as a boot knife is the weight, size and strength. It's got a full tang and related tests shows it to be an outstanding piercer.

    The BM176 just wasn't going to do it. I may still give the BM175 a try.

    Add a CRKT SPEW to the list. As much as I like my Minimalist I couldn't pass up it's big brother for $30.
     
  12. I have picked up a few Mcustas, a Cold Steel Counter Tac II, a few Infidels and a Piranha Excalibur. I will try to get some pics up this weekend.

    I really like the Counter Tac II. It is razor sharp and lightweight. The sheath isn't the best but it clips on and off ok. I use my blades as a CCW backup last ditch defensive tool, not edc cutters. I will probably pick up a full size Counter Tac and maybe a Tai Pan for kicks :)

    edit: Oh, I also need to pick up a DMT system and figure out how to maintain the edges on all of these things!

    edit for pic:

    The Piranha is my favorite btw. It is SOLID and fires HARD. It
    does have more blade play than a Benchmade however. The Adamas and AFO2 were offered for a price I couldn't turn down.

    My selection of the CT2 is purely for defensive purposes. It will not be used for utilitarian purposes.

    Made a decent amount of unexpected cash tonight, so a BM 940 may be in my near future :supergrin:

    Not sure if I want the bare or black blade. I like bare blades, but don't have any black ones. Hmm.

    I think it's a great little knife at ~$30, but they could have come up with a better name :upeyes:

    Added a red smoke Kershaw Leek today. Technically it's for my wife, but I like it too...
