    Looking for a slicer recommendation.

    Any Opinel. The Boker Exskelibur is very slicey. I’m not sure what versions are still available at your cost limit.

    Recommendation? Good bluetooth in ear headphones

    What is the connection between ear buds and ear protection to you? How do you use them “along” side each other?

    The Bears' Den--Shirogorov Showcase

    The F3 pattern is the best hard use folder I’ve come across. It’s blade geometry and handle ergonomics are unequalled in my experience. It just fits my hand perfectly.

    What watch do you wear?

    Thanks. It's an Omega Planet Ocean bezel with an aftermarket ceramic insert. Perfect fit on both. Quartz is very useful for a grab and go watch you don't have to set but once in a while for the date. ETA quartz movements as in the Omega can be accurate on the wrist to +/-5-10 sec per year while...

    What watch do you wear?

    The independent hour hand makes this quartz model a great travel watch. I had a different bezel put on it. It's much grippier than the original.

    The Bears' Den--Shirogorov Showcase

    I wasn’t aware of Knifecenter. Thanks. I have a small regret in my CF-side HatiOn Lite. The different sides are incongruous. Maybe I should flip it and snag a Neon Zero from them. I think I like its looks better. But they don’t have much inventory now. Appearance aside, it’s an EDC phenom. Love...

    That sounds right. I bought my F3 from eBay in Oct 2018. I bought my HatiOn Lite from Recon1 a year and a half ago. Cool store. I got to visit them before the pandemic. I didn’t buy anything though.

    When did Recon1 become a Shiro dealer? I got my F3 from a Russian guy on eBay possibly before.

    Best scissors?

    I have an original Leatherman Wave that's been a constant companion to me since it was new. It has helped me out on more occasions than I can remember. The one tool on it that's terrible is the scissors. My SAK ones are better. Which multi-tool today has a great pair of scissors or mini-shears?

    Fishing, and hunting reports (share yours)

    I once went all the way up to the north slope of the Brooks Range for Dall sheep. I never pulled a trigger. But I brought back a cooler full of backstraps. None of the successful hunters wanted theirs.

    Thanks. I’ve had an F3 for several years now. Maybe five. It’s not going anywhere.

    What are the advantages/improvements of the new F3NS over the original F3? I know the steels are Elmax vs M390. Is there anything else?
