    I've got a couple of custom fixed blade knives on the way right now- one form Aaron over at Gray Wolf Knives and another that'll be a Christmas present from Malanikka. I'm waiting on the GWK right now to finish it's delivery (overseas holiday backup) but here are the pictures he sent me of what I can expect when it finally arrives.

    That stuff aside, I'm checking out Lionsteel's unique folding design in the SR-11 and T.R.E. and seeing how that works...

    ZT0900 (love this little knife!) and a couple of M390 Kershaws, these are also excellent cutters.

    Mule Teams are great EDC blades. Which one did you get?

    I haven't bought anything lately but I managed to get the OK from my sister to buy my nephew a Leatherman Wingman for his 18th B day in Nov. I though he might get a little more use out of a MT vs a knife.

    I didn't want to go too expensive. He tends to, ahem, misplace things...

    I have the linerlock version (which I had to send back because it didn't always lock up when opened, but works fine now) and the thin liner always bugs me. I wish I could trade it out! You think the improvement is worth buying another or am I nit-picking?

    I purchased a Spyderco Polestar. Sounds like a stripper... hope it performs like one ;)

    Might depend on what you are looking for...I figure the liner lock version must be lighter. I'm liking the design a lot, but its heftier than I would have thought.

    Work had me on the road last week. There was a small pile waiting for me at home:
    • Spyderco Manix & G10 Manbug. They're both pretty well used, specially the Manbug, but I got them both for $85.
    • Hinderer XM-18 3" Wharncliffe & Half Track
    • A well used Chris Reeve small Inkosi I picked up cheap (relatively)
