    Kabar BK77 came in. Wow. Great knife. Half a55ed sheath. If I had a showroom and sold knives, I would take all of the GV handles off the BKs, throw them away, and replaced them with the micarta options. Wow.


    Did I mention this knife is wow?

    Very nice! I'm on the fence about an s30v model.

    Got a framelock/G10/S30V on the way, along with a regular tan/black. Leeks are just cool :supergrin:

    Benchmade mini-Infidel otf automatic which sucked, followed by a Microtech Scarab otf automatic, which rocks.

    Missouri just legalized automatics for carry by civilians on July 11, 2012.

    Now our knife homicides will go through the roof. I can see it now - crowded theaters, Post Offices, Sikh temples..... Oh, the humanity!

    Picked up a couple relatively scarce blades, NIB.

    The Yojimbo and the Ronin. They will go nicely with my two Yojimbo 2s. The Ronin feels very nice in the hand. I like the feel of the Yo2 over the original.

    A couple more Leeks, a black/tan and an S30V/stainless framelock. I have just a little more switching around to do, and I'll be done with the Leeks.

    Why would you be scared, you'd never steal anyone's CRK bearing package?

    But if you wouldn't steal anything in the first place, why would it matter?

    I wouldn't steal it, but I wouldn't want it to feel unloved and abandoned on your porch. :whistling: :supergrin:
