No thats totally fair, but it's only really in theory, if you're landing rough on that coping, chances are you aren't getting much grinding done anyway.

 

Anyway, here's my ride!

Thats a Framelock isnt it?

if i were to get me a folder someday or a Spring assist, id rather get me a Liner Lock instead IMO.

or one of Cold Steel's Triad lock.. since it seems to be proven at best

Yep.  A ZT frame lock isn't going to fail so it doesn't much matter.  I like frame locks because they usually have more metal contact and I don't have to worry about junk getting stuck between the lock and the frame.  I've read stories where soldiers had to stop using certain knives because sand or mud got stuck in there and they couldn't close the knife. Plus there is a bit more added pressure on the lock itself with frame locks, meaning your hand holds it in place a bit.  Bottom line is they're about equal in strength and as long as it's from a reputable manufacturer it's not going to give you problems (barring any manufacturing flaws).

I bought one of these a couple of months ago and it's probably the coolest knife I've ever owned. Problem is, it's quite different than the Spyderco I normally carry so it sits on my desk, uncarried. Anybody want to buy it?

A customer spoke to me on the phone for like 45 minutes about cables which then turned into watch talk where I recommended that exact model. I actually highly recommend the C. Ward Trident. it's about 75% of the Omega for about 1/3 what my watch is worth. If you want to catch up to the Omega in looks (I would have went Seiko if it weren't for how nice the bracelet feels) I would wear that Trident on leather. Since you have a black one you can essentially pick your favorite leather and roll with an insanely classy look which will turn heads from all the Rolex owners. I actually didn't pay too much for my watch, 1100 for yesteryears model compared to 3k for the new ones, before retail markup?! Helluva bargain to me.

 

Anyway check out how close you can get :)

Leather is damn sexy yo. And uhh watches are relatively cheap to what some of these guys spend on audio... I think watches keep me happier than headphones too.

29 Knives. It's a custom by Christopher Olofson. Tanto blade of S30V with burled ash handles.

I like balisongs because they're very reliable as knives. They're fun to play with as toys, but when it gets down to it.. they're relatively low maintenance knives that are tough and look cool :)

I use this one since leathermans either rust or snap in half, maybe i'm just unlucky?

i recently started getting into folding knives, i have an SOG Flash II and just won a kershaw leek off of ebay. these two knives are the closest things to a legal switchblade. depending on your state/city, youll actually be able to carry it on your persons all day. i know i do, ive been pulled over with some friends and ive said "im carrying a knife which im allowed to carry by the state" and he looked at it and gave my friend his well deserved speeding ticket. its clipped onto my pocket all day and i dont even notice it until i need it.


i know we've all come into a situation where a knife would have come in handy. i use mine to open boxes, letters, fight bears, and more recently, prepare firewood for bonfires


Kershaw Leek
SOG Flash 2

I don't have a collection, but I do own a very fine Emerson CQC-15.
The blade goes through metal like butter
