    Thanks, James! I'll be honest: even with the Axis being a "Mini" it's still comically large for my everyday carry. The thick blade and obtuse edge angle on the D2 steel is great for zip ties, but not so much for my more delicate uses. I'm hoping to pick up a KME soon, so I think I'll reprofile it and see how it does. I am a sucker for the deep carry clip I put on it, too.

    Carrying both of these today. The primary reason for bringing back my small Insingo is due to the fact that I broke my thumb nail off so opening a traditional is a problem :(

    @redsparow Thank you, sir.

    @Ironbut One has to appreciate, when one finds a great personal combo.

    @TheFactor Nice Stich. Who is the maker of your stockman or whittler?

    @TheFactor Wow. Very nice. I really like it. They don’t get the attention they deserve.

    What model is your ZT Emerson with N. Micarta scales? If you can’t say the name of scales out here, please PM.

    Great combos lately.

    Keeping on the city carry with my new Ti—Lock. It’s a fantastic knife and I like it for several aspects of function and form.

    Hey guys, Make sure you sneak a pic of your traditional knife in your posts too! Thanks!:thumbsup:

    I've tied a couple of those noose knits this weekend. They really look good and do the job.
    The Dozier needs a black knot but all I had on hand was brown. I'll need to pick up some black leather boot laces.
    These knives are getting along fine.
    I edited the original image I posted to include the Kydex sheath that came with the Dozier.

    Two very fine knives Gary and a knice knot, but your "2017 Blade of the Year" is so sweet it could cause cavities. o_O;)

    @Peregrin I hope you get a cavity free report Gary. But the only way to guarantee a cavity free household is to get that knife a safe distance away. May I suggest somewhere such as Michigan? :D (green with envy but still smiling)

    @willard0341 Love your mammoth CRK. I really like that Ironwood #25 as well. I use the low-ball Yeti everyday.
