Discontinued in 2010, sorry didn't do my research.

FRN = G-10 in terms of useability. It's less rigid, but it's not a locking knife anyway so it's not that important. UKPK is a great knife, I used one for a bit with great joy. Sometimes getting rid of the lock entirely is the only way to quiet my whining about lock surfaces. My ATCF fails a spine whack for example even though it's lockup is super rock solid and $900. I don't think any less of it but it does sort of bother me. It's because the lockface is way too polished. Great feel, not great for absolute torture testing. It stabs just fine though.. plus people are soft anyway I'm assuming wink.gif

I still have my Byrd Crow with G-10, just that the scale is not that well finished and the wide blade makes everyday use for food far less than ideal. Got the flat grind version just for better slicing.

 

UKPK is perfectly legal in UK as well, great plus over the Crow I have now.

If you want a really sick knife, Case makes fantastic slipjoints, I use them to do my day to day work here at the office

Just got a microtech ultratech. It is probably the sweetest purchase I've ever made (aside from my JH13's that is etysmile.gif)

Gotta use something to keep away the roodypoos...

If you think the Ultratech is sick, wait til you get a Troodon or Scarab, they're both just brutal.

Spyderco Sage 1 is on my list for today.  Beautiful carbon fiber handles, and have wanted it for ages.  I have the Sage 2 and 3 as well, Sage 2 being the pick there.

 

Also considering a Centofante Memory, and Benchmade 300SN.

Not a knife, per se, but a new way to for me to carry them. I got sick of digging in my pockets for what I needed, so I made some simple pocket sheaths to organize things. One for my jacket pocket, to hold a cell phone and my tactical flashlight, and one for my back pocket for the new folder, and some biz cards. 

 

 

 

I'm very happy.

I dream of the day I can get my hands on a combat troodon in CTS 204p.  Shame knifecenter doesnt ship to California.

In other news, curse you Chris... I was doing just fine until I found the Knife Makers for sale section at BladeForums ... :/ ;)
