    That's about standard for them from what I've seen. I have no idea why they run it that soft, but it kind of sucks. I probably won't buy any more myself.

    Esee makes some great blades! Check out the candiru as well.

    If you want a cheaper fixed blade alternative--- look at Becker knife and tool. Great blades and a great value.

    I bet he meant his zt777 that to date he has only posted a pic of the handle. I think he's lying.

    And another Leek for my wife, got a nice Santa Fe Stoneworks mother of pearl/abalone Leek, had an extra damascus laying around, and a few very difficult minutes later ended up with this:

    Gorgeous!


    I have one on hold with my name on it at a dealer out of state. My hesitance is that this dealer is asking full MSRP. My LKS doesn't have any 777s yet, but he would likely only charge $480. Decisions, decisions.

    Any one have any knoledge of the Schrade Golden Spike?

    I have always liked the looks untill I get one in my hand... the simulated stag is bothersome...

    I see the new ones at pretty cheap prices, are they crap? What about the only ones... are they worth the 50-75$ price tags?

    One of the Busses is in, and I'm very impressed. Going to give it some carry time once my kydex order comes in and I can get a sheath made for it. Very cool knife.

    Nice.. no coating makes it even better.

    Closest I've gotten is a Swamprat Rodent 4. I'm interested in the INFI steel just haven't come across the right knife yet.

    I've got another Busse and a Swamp Rat on order, both coated. I'll see what I think of 'em when they arrive.
