    Your “09” Soldier is actually a Model 08 Soldier first issued in 2009. Take care of it because they are becoming collectible. I had two and got rid of them.
    Stupid move on my part.

    I have a Pattern 61 Alox Soldier made in 08. Would have made a fun mini collection with the new 08 Soldier model like yours.

    As for Griptilian scales, my complaint is the shape of the scales. I would like scales more like Emerson’s CQC7.

    I hear what you’re saying on the reasons you passed. My ideal mitt fit always seems to want that missing Goldilocks size between smalls and larges (still pining for a Sebenza medium), but for an EDC I lean towards the smaller side so it worked out here. Also agree it was pricey for a BM, however, once I had it in hand that nuttiness you speak of took over and by the time I returned to my senses it was at home with me. It really is a nice knife from Benchmade and this particular one was perfect in all aspects, I had to pull the trigger.

    What I’ve seen of your 5xx lineup looks pretty darn good to me, often prompting some mild jealousy for some of the ones you’ve put together. However, like me, I’m sure you have run into many people that comment on guys like us that start owning/modifying multiple copies of the same model, and somewhat agree we are in a sandbox that common sense has probably departed from. Oh well, what fun would it be if prudence always had to rule? :)

    That's an interesting metaphor, my friend, and I trust you'd agree that while we can build to our hearts' content in the sandbox, we never climbed in there to do anything but have some fun. ;)

    Truer words were never spoken. If you’re looking for me, I’ll be in the corner building some new castles.

    Man, that Sebenza is just so damn cool. A great edc kit for a great guy. Happy birthday, friend! Hope you have a good one... considering where you live, I’m guessing a little snow does’t slow you down one bit.

    Naw...we know the drill...snow ain’t but a thang. :) Planning on marking and cutting a trail to the pond today, gonna make a bridge over the narrowest portion (60 ft) to access the back 50. Some duck and upland hunting planned with my wife and brother this weekend. Hopefully the snow and cold get the northern birds movin’.

    Hope you have a great day, and thank you for the kind words and the b-day wishes.

    A number of CRK posts this morning. Looks like a bit of a Sebenza Saturday is forming. I'm in.
