Eep! Now imagine it getting taken away from you at the airport…

That’s one that’d definitely be sitting behind glass on a shelf somewhere, not carried.

I feel the same way. I carry only my sub $75 knives. The ones costing more stay home & see light duty… because ownership is more about appreciating the design & quality (I want them to last as long as possible). After the economic stresses are finally over, I’ll probably shift gears & get duplicates so I won’t feel the need to restrain myself.

But yeah, $500 is one cost threshold I am pretty far from crossing… and almost double is entering the “knife sculpture” category, something that’s really more of a work of art than something to use & carry casually.

Dude ! that’s not fair,,,,,,, i cant even have that knife legally, and TBH i want the gun and that is just TOTALLY out of the question unless i can find one on the black market for >3000 USD
And dont get me started on how hard / near impossible it will be to get ammo, and the price for it if you was lucky to find some.

BUT ! i actually have a nice S&W T shirt in the mail Big Smile cuz if i cant have it i can scream off the top of my lounges that i want it.

Sanrenmu LAND 912. Paid twenty dollars from a U.S. seller on eBay. Very impressed with it. Razor sharp 12C27 blade steel at this price, amazing value.

Forgot to post pics.

I had owned a TwoSun TS66-G10 up until last week. I gave it away as a gift. The person said “this is an awesome knife, I love it.” Yep, simply amazing knife for around $30-$35 on eBay where I had gotten mine.

The mod you did to yours is very cool!

Thanks!
I mean the price – value ratio of the Land 912 is outstanding in the budget category.
The TS66-G10 is also nice but it cost me 3 times more than my Land 9103 (912).

I really like the TS66-G10 in blue/white. It reminds me a little of Japanese Manga.

Yeah same here. For $60 on special with the S35v steel, very toned down look, slim profile, and bearings. Makes for a very good EDC. The S35v holds it’s edge pretty good as well.

My EDC knife for the past ~12 years has been a Boker LEO-Damast III with the ironwood inlay. The wife got it for me and it’s been an awesome knife; much better than my $20 Gerber I had before it.

I also hate the cavity left for swapping recessed clips. Some designs address this by including a swappable steel cover plate but I think that’s ugly. This has caused me to pass on a bunch of otherwise nice knives.

This is the coolest and most interesting solution I’ve seen. How durable is that long-term?

Thanks! So far so good. Smile I hope this Gorilla epoxy won’t let me down.

I’m not a big fan of these left side carry pocket clip slots either. I can live with it on my Land 910plus and Ganzo FH11 but on this TwoSun it was quite irritating.

I think I’ll carry my new Emerson Commander Karambit for the first time. My Super CQC8 was getting a little heavy yesterday.

Bestech Texel

I’m thinking of dying it a light pink to keep the semi-translucent affect.

Nice! I’ve had a hankering for a knife with “jade” scales (semi-translucent soft green). There are quite a number of knife models available in the budget range, each with slightly different texture and shading. I really like the look of the Texel. Where did you find it?

The Texel is a really nice knife. I finally got a black one after getting my hands on a spare black back spacer to match it. Being a humid summer though, I probably won’t do the swap and start carrying it until Fall.

Given the excellent results of your lavender Feldspar, I’d love to see a pink Texel. I’ve been on the hunt for cheap Jade G-10 to practice my dye skills with your method.

Thank you for the compliment on my lavender job. Looks like it might be a while until the local Michael’s craft store will have pink DyeMore in stock.

75mm Higonokami.

The blade is coated with lube to inhibit rust, so it doesn’t look pristine. Plenty sharp.

Yeah, seems there’s many sites offering that discount at the same time. But White Mountain has no minimum for free shipping… and of course, it sold out there. Facepalm

I seen the jade Texel on Amazon, as well, with free shipping. But it showed limited stock, six on hand I believe. It’s $52 like most retailers, too.
