    New Cold Steel Drop Forged Bowie?

    My experience with CS so far is this: If you do get it and you want to actually use it - get an after market sheath or go custom... Their sheaths are just P.O.S. from my experience... I shelled out around 100€ for a CPM-3V Mini Pendleton and it was the dullest out of the box knife I ever...

    That time when I used 1 knife for almost 10 days

    I only have 5 knives currently 2 of which are small ebough for EDC, so I don't have much of a choice. I carried Boker GoBag almost exclusivley for about a year until I got Viper Berus 1. I had more knives but I either sold them or they broke because I did something stupid. I have: Boker GoBag...

    Temporary Deprivation

    I'll go ahead and just use Boker GoBag for everything, until custom sheath for Viper Berus 1 is done, then I'll switch on that one and see how long I can do. I realy like this idea.

    I'd lie to myself if I said I wouldn't get S35VN version too if I could afford it. Also, I was on an island with mine, I had no corrosion issues and all I did was just dry it and oil it with something before putting away. So little care goes a long way with 1095

    Anyone Take A Second Look at Ka-Bar's TDI Astro MP?

    I'd hate to find myself in situation where all I have for last ditch self defense is a knife... but this would probably work great if I did. That being said, anything that's clearly designed to be a weapon first and utility second - is illegal to carry here. So, I definitely won't be buying...

    Knife you're embarrased to own or admit purchasing?

    Definitely! 10/10 would do again :D

    I agree with statement. Lack of coating and better handle make it perform better. Also, there's no worry about corrosion, and it holds an edge for a lot longer. But one of reasons why I even got ESEE-3 at a first place is 1095 steel that's really easy to get scary sharp with even most basic...

    Knife you're embarrased to own or admit purchasing?

    And there's me, I just don't use folders. Even when I had my Voyager I just used it twice, it got all dirty as I used it to cut food and I just stopped using it completely as I had no idea how to get that filth out of it and out of it's lock mechanism... Viper Berus 1 is my favourite EDC...

    That time when I used 1 knife for almost 10 days

    I agree. Just, I'd hate to cut carpets, zip ties or plastic packaging with a SAK. I won't even mention food prep, cleaning the fish we caught or some wood processing I did. Just tapping off smaller branches, and chopping in a little so I can break the wood at that exact spot, and some feather...

    That time when I used 1 knife for almost 10 days

    That's impressive guys! This just further confirms it that we don't need to have numerous knives. Some are better than some others for specific tasks, but 2 or max 3 knives are guaranteed to cover you completely. I mean, to me it was mind boggling that I opened boxes, cut carpets, stripped...

    That time when I used 1 knife for almost 10 days

    My friends invited me to their vacation house on an island. They just bought it, it's pretty much in nature and they possibly needed to do some stuff there as they didn't know if previous owner even left them furniture. My initial plan was to take my Warcraft tanto, ESEE 3 and either Boker...

    Recommendation? Friend cannot decide which knife to choose

    I second this. He sold me that Ka-Bar way under the price. I agree, it even went through World War 2, so it has to be solid.

    I got myself Viper Berus 1 (small M390 fixed blade). I'm beyond happy with it.

    That's not even so terrible, for a wall hanger that is.
