I've gotten a morff 4 which was out of the box perfection, a sablya which was also perfect out of the box, and tomorrow I'll be awaiting the Bradford guardian3 with DLC coating and jade handles in M390. Very, very excited for this one!
I picked up this little liner lock by Steve Hostetler at last weekend's Knife Expo in Pasadena:
ATS-34, ironwood burl, blue-anodized titanium frame and screws. Opens with one hand easily just by friction of the thumb. Wonderfully smooth and well-made. Fits perfectly in the coin pocket. At $225 I'd say it was a steal! I absolutely love it.
Definitely. I met and had conversations with so many interesting people, including several custom knife makers, people in the biz who have known Sal Glesser and others for 30+ years, the son of one of the makers whose knife I was selling (Chuck Stapel, who passed away recently), David Sun (Kizer's US rep), and many others.
