    Do you have any dealbreakers?

    I have a bunch of unreasonable biases that limit what I want in a knife: 1. No plant or animal parts in scales: no wood, no tooth or bone. Also no Micarta, FRN or similar plastics, aluminum, and mostly no G-10, unless it's a cheap knife. Mainly I just like scales made from carbon fiber...

    The Bears' Den--Shirogorov Showcase

    Nice shots of what looks like a great knife! Being a fan of thick handles, I'm a little disappointed to hear the scales are slim. Do you know what the handle width is?

    With the knife market slowing down what's everyone still hunting for?

    Hi. What's the reason behind the Sebenza sales? Never been a fan myself, but it's interesting to see (previous) owner insights on such things.

    Recommendations for first high end edc?

    If you can find one and it’s not too much: Koenig Arius. New ones start at $585 now, I think. At a lower price, if you can find one preowned — sorry to recommend something not currently produced — the Evo Typhoon is great.
