    Cheap folder with a good blade?

    Spend another 20 and grab a Civivi baklash. Great knife with some fantastic performing steel no joke.

    Knives you have most fun with

    Great question! For me its my Chaves 229 Ultramar. Its got such an addictive deployment and the sound it makes is satisfying. I also really enjoy using it since it's edge geometry is fantastic. It doesn't look it but man its a slicer, and that spanto grind makes me not too worried about light...

    I'm too jealous. I should've bagged one of these when I had the chance.

    EDC XIII Which knife or knives are you carrying today?

    I bet! I've seen a lot of fellow users on here say their favorite steel is 14c28n along with stuff kind of similar like AEB-L and Nitro-V. I'm super stoked to put it through it's paces.

    EDC XIII Which knife or knives are you carrying today?

    Nice! You should definitely snag one when you get the chance. I got lucky and bought this along with the brazen as a package deal for 60$ shipped. Yea 14c28n is is pretty fantastic, I'm interested to see how civivi's version of it performs. The 9cr18 on other civivi's out performs my...

    EDC XIII Which knife or knives are you carrying today?

    If it only shaves hair on one side it sounds like its got a burr. Hit the side that shaves with a strop or ceramics and that should do it.

    EDC XIII Which knife or knives are you carrying today?

    The Civivi Riffle. This is one of the best 55$ I've ever spent on a knife. Its got one of the thinnest edges I've felt on a production knife and it performs like a king. It's also rocking 14C28N which I hope is as good as their 9cr18mov and the action is addictive! I have yet to be let down by...

    EDC XIII Which knife or knives are you carrying today?

    Carried these two today while traveling for work. Really loving this combo, the Kizer genie really surprised me. An underrated knife that has a great blade to handle ratio and really lightweight. The Ti handles are heavily milled out which helps!

    Spyderco tenacious - any love here

    I see what your saying but here’s the issues I keep having. It’s one thing for these Chinese companies to offer knives for lower prices and better materials, that’s hard to beat as an American company. BUT, when these Chinese companies are also offering better quality control and fit and...

    EDC XIII Which knife or knives are you carrying today?

    Carrying these two today. I really love the size of the utx8, it’s the perfect size for edc. As for the Socom elite there not much I can say that hasn’t been said. One of my favorite folders ever.

    Spyderco tenacious - any love here

    It was a great knives and option 5 years ago. Now with Civivi is really isn’t a great option. Check out a few videos on Civivi’s 9cr18 edge retention. It rivals spydercos s30v.

    Opinion: Frame Locks are Ugly

    I used to think frame locks were ugly when I first got into knives. Then after a few months it grew on me and its now my favorite lock. Another reason I love frame locks is most of my favorite designs have frame locks.

    This knife was a huge surprise.

    It’s impressive she got you that version let alone knew where to find one via secondary market. Congrats. As for the cold steel, it’s a great blade for the $$$. The perfect budget beater that’ll serve you and your children after.

    Which Spydie?

    I just looked this up and it surprised me. The contributions were below 20k for 2020 but still ever since 2010 it’s been the Democrat party they contribute to. It’s ironic because so many gun shops/sporting good stores have their knives for sale so I’d imagine it wouldn’t be in their financial...

    New Member hoping to learn.

    Welcome! I started at your age about 21 and now I’m 30. I unfortunately had a good amount of disposable income when I started and within a year of diving head first into knives I was buying customs! Now I’ve chilled out a bit and move some of the money towards other things (guns). Remember...
