    I'm waiting on my Orange Spyderco PM2.

    Other than that I'm may pick up another Kukri.

    Nothing out there right now I'm really excited about. I'd like to get an example of the IKBS I'm just not sure which knife.

    The RJ Martin is by far the best bearing knife that I have ever handled, though the price more than reflects it.

    Randall makes some of the best knives out there, just not quite my style.

    I like the looks Q36 and the fact that it's a flipper. The pocket clip kills it though. Looks like someone slapped on some scrap metal from the shop floor.

    Something in m390. I really want to check out that steel first hand.

    I have to sharpen my work knives about once a week. This should be ideal.

    I'd like to give m390 and Cpm M4 a try. I don't have much use for Zdp189 because of its brittleness, it does hold an edge for a long time though.

    Seems like i tried to locate something in M4 once. All I could locate was a fixed blade custom and the price wasn't, shall we say, reasonable lol.

    Maybe spyderco makes something in m4, can't recall, but that's some pricey steel!

    Maybe a couple more of the Glock knives for when the boys are older. I beat the crap out of mine when we go camping and I'd like them to learn the many uses of a camp knife. I'll probably go cheap for their first camp knife though and keep the Glocks(or something like them) around for when they are a bit more responsible. For myself, I like the looks of Grayman knives but they're very pricey in these parts and I think I could get something just as good for less money.
