    Photos Your very first knife vs your latest - Did your taste and style changed?

    My first knife was an Endura with a partially serrated edge in ATS-55. Over the years I've learned to sharpen knives and find that I prefer plain edge blades. My latest knife is a Gayle Bradley Advocate.

    The most recent ones I am aware of are the Lionspy, Lil' Lionspy and Pingo sprint run, but all of these have been discontinued.

    What's your pajama knife??

    I tend to use bigger, heavier folders when I'm home. I carry them clipped to my front pocket so folded length isn't an issue. Its when I leave the house that I bring something small in FRN like the Spyderco Native or titanium like the ZT 0470, as I carry in my back pocket on these occasions.

    The red/black zome Delica exclusive from DLT Trading in 20CV, an analogue of M390, is still available. Also, the SpyOpera in M390 is available at various dealers.

    Is it normal to be fickle about the “next knife?”

    I keep a shortlist of knives that I plan to buy. Problems arose this year when a rapid succession of sprints and exclusives screamed for my attention. In the aftermath, I now have a handful of knives in the same pattern with different steels and scale colors. Hopefully I have learned my lesson...

    Off Topic Question on the L.T. Wright Small Northern Hunter

    I use mine mostly for gardening and house chores. Its size is suitable for daily carry as well. A few minutes on the Sharpmaker are enough to bring it back to full sharpness after a day's work. I agree with Halfneck's observation about its being a good cutting blade due to its edge geometry and...

    Knives you've seriously considered buying, but never pulled the trigger on

    Spyderco Drunken. I find it to be a good looking knife, but for that price I could already get a CRK or a custom knife.

We have a house in another province where my children used to stay while studying at university. However, since most schools have transitioned to online classes, we...

    Spyderco Am I the only one who just can't do it?

    I have multiple variants of the US-made Native 5, Para 3, Yojimbo 2, and Manix 2. That said, I also enjoy the Taichung models shown below. I don't have any China-made Spyderco models as none have really appealed to me, although the Astute might change that. I also plan on getting the Italian...
