A pair of beautiful Chuck Gedraitis folders I scored earlier today before I fell asleep in my cold-induced coma

 

They're very pretty and feel good in the hand, very classy too, I scored them for a pretty good price and I'm looking to catch and release to fund my balisong :)

 

Cold medicine is also horrendously expensive (by my standards haha)

Ahh, I thought hard about pulling the trigger on an X-24 but decided on a trio of paramilitary 2's, so that's pretty much a commitment. Otoh I check the classified xx.x number of times a day, looking for a particular Busse. This thread has motivated a full update on my toolbox, and that's a good thing!  wink.gif

I only own 1 knife for now. Byrd Meadowlark 2. I plan on getting a Rat 1 next!

the custom ashworth turtle is pretty cute. if not much of a knife. it is also cheap as far as customs go. problem for me is it is not vegan. so the crkt was a no brainer. honestly it is a lot of knife for $9. those martin knives are really pretty too. again, maybe not much of a knife. hardly vegan either lol. i wanted something different for a change.

350

yeah...all these different hobbies are dangerous.  especially when you start spending too much time on forums...thats when you know your in trouble.  you should check out the zero tolerance/hinderer collaboration, the 550.  very reasonably priced, well much lower than a x18.  i'm pretty set on my firearms/knives/and photography equipment so now im starting to concentrate on audio :)
