Man i wish i had a balisong... frown.gif But its illegal to even own one up here in Canada, so i dont think i will get my hands on one any time soon.

But anyway heres a picture of my small knife collection.

The Top two knifes are the SOG Trident and the CRKT N.E.C.K. The Botton two knifes are the Spyderco Centofante 4 and the SOG Flash I.

I mostly use the SOG Trident and the CRKT N.E.C.K. as my main EDCs

i am thinking about picking this pack up.  right now i have an E&E as my EDC pack.  Great choice in gear!

The Xray had great compartmentalization including the space for a camelbak. It packs weight really well.

 

I've been looking at picking up an E&E. How have you found the unpadded shoulder straps for use over tee shirt?

Less into knives these days, though I would like to pick up a nice kitchen knife. I have a spyderco salt 1, para 1, and p'kal. I do miss some of the ones I've sold off. I'm really jonesing to own a protech godfather again. I'd also like to get a decent scandi grind fixed blade with full tang, a blade under 3" and decently long grip in the future. So far the only thing I've seen is the Koster Woodlore. 3v is a bit high carbon though.

given the size of the E&E i don't really stuff it so the unpadded straps don't really bother me

EH You're from JD?


I'm Chris_Himself haha and I have over 1k posts there in less than a year (some sort of personal record for me)

 

I'm mainly in the balisong section though

Anybody interested in the upcoming Benchmade Model 62 balisong knife?

 

Looks like a great old school style balisong, all steel construction, zen pins.

 

I am interested in checking one out.

Haven't been keeping up, but the 62 definitely sounds interesting

Authentic Hand Forged Katana made for hard targets.  Sliced through my 4 inch thick bamboo Bo staffs like a hot knife through butter.  Hand sharpened by yours truly.  I may sell it off, not sure though.  I really enjoyed playing with it and want something a little more customized for me.

Be very careful, especially if you don't have any training. I've seen far too many people who self-train or play with swords that end up hurting themselves *very* seriously. I'd recommend finding a teacher if you're interested. I started about 8 years ago, and I've enjoyed every minute of it!

 

Though, hell, I don't know, you could be a practitioner. If so, carry on! Nothing wrong with training with a sharp sword (an iaito will never give a proper feeling of weight and intensity when compared to a live blade when practicing), in fact, its what I use when practicing techniques.

I've just recently stopped my training, been taking Aikido for nearly 15 years so :)  Good times.  I've recently found that I enjoy the Ninjitsu style sword much more than the Katana, due mostly because its so light and fast.  My ad ends tomorrow, I hope it sells.  I have a few interested parties and watchers so heres to good luck in a sale!

I saw this on another forum that you visit and I have to say its a very nice looking bali. I like the way balis look but I have yet to get a desire to get one and try flipping.

 

I recently got a Zero Tolerance 0350 and so far so good. It would be my first very nice folder. Not sure if it is considered a "high end" in the knife community but its a good one. I have been tempted to get a strider just to see what the fuss is all about. The new ZT 0561 is really tempting me also.

My buddy has wanted a Benchmade griptillian so I just picked up this for him. Have not even gotten a chance to give it to him yet:
