I'm been trying to find a Fox Suru titanium, but about ready to give up.
I was eyeballing a Jurassic and considering finally trying Olamic before all this started, both of which will likely still happen at some point but are put on the back burner for the time being. It's not so much that the current situation scared me out of a purchase, but more that my mind is elsewhere and for purchases like that I really need to be obsessed. Plus, although I'm doing ok, I had some family members who needed helped out which comes first obviously. For the most part I'm happy with my collection where it's at for the moment.
That being said you never know when your obsession is going to hit. While browsing this weekend, mine informed me that I need a GEC #14 in black micarta, which I wasn't even aware of before I saw it. I'm not sure if I'll be able find one, but it's something I can have fun keeping an eye out for. Still, not super concerned about picking up anything for now.
A Hinderer XM-18 3" Wharncliffe in 20CV is still evading me.
Cant wait CKF!!!!!!!!
I’ve had time to go thru my collection (managed to find some knives I forgot I had ) and aside from SAKs and a couple traditionals, I’ve realized I don’t have much selection in the 2-3” locking folders. So far I’ve bought an Urban Trapper Petite, a Launch 12, a 3” XM-18, an Alox mini-champ, and a manbug in ZDP-189....”honey, I NEED these to round out the collection”
Don't let them cut yours off. Take theirs, and make them earn yours.
Even if I could find a holt specter I wouldn't really want to drop the 1300 plus on one. However I really love thier company and design. If I could find one for $600. I'd say that is my grail as of now.
After seeing a gentleman post his in another thread, I'm hot for a Paragon Mini-Cobra.
My girlfriend wants me to give her my Boker GoBag, so I'm considering getting a Cold Steel Peace Maker III once this quarantene is over. One gentleman on this forum has got it and has only good things to say about it, so I think I'll like it.
Or I'll decide that owning 3 knives is enough and keep carrying Forged Hunter as regular EDC again.
She's got good taste.
Hahaha, did you look up the knife or you just assumed?
I looked up the knife
Glad you think that way
I can already see her asking me to sharpen it after a while
(D2 steel isn't easiest to sharpen)
My herd has thinned as well. Down to 6. Only knives I would like at this point are a Shamwari or Charl Pienaar. Would buy the new Koenig mini Arius and a Spyderco Swayback if those two ever see the light of day. Not holding my breath. I thought the new Sebenza would be a shoe-in but when the moment of truth came, I could not do it. Kept remembering why I sold the half dozen I had and that the reason will not have changed. So, passing on those. I have bought one or two odds and ends since the apocalypse just to check out, knowing I would not keep them. I don’t mind the loss for a chance to check em out and get them out of my system.
So, considering how hard the ones I mentioned would be to get or if they will ever even become available are in question, it is unlikely I will buy another keeper this year. My job has not been affected in all this so funds are what they have always been - whatever I can sneak by the wife.
would love to find a Slysz Bowie on the exchange.....
Hi. What's the reason behind the Sebenza sales? Never been a fan myself, but it's interesting to see (previous) owner insights on such things.
You uhhhh...you just missed one it looks like.
For me it was pretty much fidget factor. Great tools and all and certainly well made, but I am not a fan of the thumb stud and lockbar pressure. Finger fatigue sets in pretty quick for me. Typically why I pass on most knives to be honest. Not really an issue for those not afflicted with my disorder, but definitely kills my enjoyment. I am one who gets no satisfaction in knowing I have something in a ‘collection’. I want to carry, use, and fiddle with my knives or for sale it goes. But I will not knock CRK’s quality in any way. Top notch.
Makes sense. That thumb stud is my least favorite part of the Sebenza. Uncomfortable to use, and the tip loses its ano immediately. Of all the things to keep the same when they do an incremental upgrade, why keep that?
