    Recommendation? Titanium frame Lock, other than CRK

    Personally, if I wanted something different from a Sebenza while still retaining a somewhat similar feel (i.e. all Ti, thumbstuds, washers, etc.) I’d go with either an Umnumzaan or SHF.

    Mad Dog Knives

    Y’know, I can’t believe I actually forgot the absolute #1 reason for wanting to own a MD ATAK no matter how high the price: The Steven Seagal Factor!😜 ETA:

    Mad Dog Knives

    Okay, Much like Emerson’s customs, there was a mystique associated with McClung’s knives during the mid nineties due to some sort of association with the SEALs and, much like Ernie, he quickly developed a cult-like following. Much drama has ensued in the intervening years… I actually owned...

    How long do you keep a new knife...

    I know immediately if they’re a keeper or not but sometimes it takes me a good while to get around to selling, trading or giving ‘em away.

    Is aftermarket support important to you?

    Not in the least. ETA: I don’t modify my knives, though. I may pimp the occasional XM-18 but even then it’s with factory parts.

    From Russia with Love

    That’s the recent addition. After selling an F3 and F95NL I was left with only NeOn-sized models.

    Review Mnandi Comparison - 2nd & 3rd Generations

    Nice write up. I could never open my 1st or 2nd gen ones with my thumb so that aspect definitely wouldn’t be a deal breaker for me. I’m kind of ambivalent about the aesthetics of the hole (to be completely honest I haven’t really even looked at the 3rd gen ones but if the right one comes along...

    The Bears' Den--Shirogorov Showcase

    So lately I’d been missing having an F95 in the collection and made an offhand comment in another thread about wanting to pick up a Turtle. Low and behold, a gracious fellow forum member reached out to me out of the blue with an offer on a gently pre-owned example that I just couldn’t refuse...

    Recommendation? So you've Got $1500 to Spend - Which Folder and Why?

    Shiro Turtle and pocket the change. Why? ‘cause I want one.
