    Thanks. That’s a Bark River Bravo 1. I also have a Bark River mini Canadian I carry. They are great knives but as of lately I have heard some pretty negative stuff about Bark River, I don’t know. I also have this ZT that I am very pleased with. [​IMG]

    I have a Microtech combat troodon OTF auto. Impulse purchase but I like it. Since it has a glass breaker on the end I decided it doubled as a “safety device” and it made me feel better...

    I have knives and guns in safes.

    Impossible to carry them all at once.

    I looked at a few knives today while my wife shopped for Christmas decorations.

    Walmart has a nice selection.

    The Old Timer 2 pack would have been mine if someone would have been around to open the display case!

    I just decided I want a small pocket knife - but will also check out a few fancy knives at the next gun show.

    I bought 5 additional Spydercos after my PM2 but guess what, my PM2 still gets carried 100% of time. Oh well.

    I think he was pointing out that a Ruger 1911 is a cheap gun. I certainly wouldn’t carry one. I’ve seen them turned into great guns with much expense. On the other hand I really like their single action revolvers so they can do some things right.

    I have one of those with a single sided blade. A tank. I carry it sometimes. I wish it was sharper.

    I am a big time custom knife collector. I have plenty of Kershaw and Benchmade knives that are more than adequate for most anything. Both of those makers are in my backyard. But I find one off customs to be very enjoyable to collect. Half Face Blades makes some amazing one off custom knives that are near impossible to get. When they do a drop, you’ve got less than 2 minutes to snag something. And I will say the minute you purchase something the value just shot up. I’ve purchased knives from them for say $650 only to have $1500+ offers for them minutes later. The knife world is crazier than most think. 46323282-AD7F-427F-A149-F365E1F4A456.jpeg

    I was just looking over at CRKT and they've got some decent knives, one at $40 that caught my eye as a great EDC pocketknife, and another at $85 that seemed like a great "Sunday School" knife - you know, one that replaces your old, beat up, tape-adhesive-stuck-to-the-blade EDC knife when you are wearing pants that aren't jeans.

    Good old Larry. He has a good memory, to be able to remember the B-day of everyone in the Buyers Club.

    That must have been a good chunk of money for you back then.
