    How does that change anything? And I don't care one way or the other about people who make their own decisions, that is completely up to them, I was just asking if there was any proof that MOST of the users here don't like Strider. I'm not the one that threw out an opinion as fact in a thread about what knives were released at SHOT.

    Ah, yes, you're just the one that threw out an opinion as fact about what percentage of folks disliked Mick Strider. ;)

    Something about motes in your brother's eye and logs in your own or some such deal.

    Gas station knives are junk. But the person making that junk says "well I sell out every time we make them" does that mean they are great? That kind of reasoning is what you used. That's what zt says about there knives even though they make ugly designs and lock bar failures etc. But it's okay because they sell. It's okay that strider is stolen Valor because they sell out. Hmmm... No

    Actually my reasoning was that for a knife company that MOST people hate they sure seem to sell a lot of knives.. If it doesn't work for you that's fine but extending that hate to MOST people here doesn't make sense. Unless you have some kind of proof. Which you haven't shown as of yet.

    Last post for me and then you guys can fight over the meaning of facts vs opinions, Strider released a new folder at SHOT. Buy it or not, hate the man or not, but acting like you speak for MOST of a HUGE forum about the subject is wrong unless you can back it up. Which you have not done so far.

    Have a good day

    Recently discussed thread among many others about the topic. Support stolen Valor all you want because that's how he built his empire of fans.

    I don't think he was arguing about the ethics of the company/owner, but rather the popularity they seem to enjoy despite their known issues.

    As the OP, please stick to a discussion of the new knives at SHOT.

    I'll be definitely getting one of those... :D
    There is plenty of room on the back to grind a little "wave" notch.

    Very nice. Any word on dimensions? On what kind of lock?

    No idea on lock or dimensions. All I've found out so far is flipper and S35 steel.

    New Leatherman stuff looks pretty cool. I started a thread about it in multi tools. Im definitely interested in their new stuff.

    The only thing that stands out to me is the ad10 and ad15 from cold steel. Everything else looks like a rehash of old ideas or shitty new ideas

    For those who find this SHOT Show boring (and by extension, the current direction of the industry) what would you like to see?

    I find myself "judging a book by its cover" on most new knife releases, because not much substantive change is coming with new models.

    Where could things be headed long-term that would actually reflect progress?

    Speaking for myself, I'd like to see:
    • Spyderco showing progress on making their US factory's quality on par with Taichung's.
    • ZT having a semblance of brand heritage and returning to a focus on practicality instead of nonfunctional gimmicks.
    • Factory makers solving the two-stage 'tick-tock' detent ball thing on framelocks and linerlocks, like Koenig already has.
    • US companies throwing some extra screws in the box. If China can do it, the US can do it. WTF.
