This is really a knife where I don’t know if I like or dislike the “second nail nick” groove or whatever that is…

If my wife was an office clerk I’d gift her the lamp though, in German Tippse (from tippen/to type) is a not too nice term for that kind of ink pissers Silly

The Fangtooth is not an average slipjoint for sure! Smile

I got a Benchmade Bugout and love it. Decided to try a Mini Bugout and it’s just too small, not a fan.
Then I tried the Mini Crooked River since it’s closer to the full-size Bugout but just did not like it in hand.
Just my opinion, of course, but figured someone might like to know.

So if you are considering a Bugout, do it!

Great choice on the Bugout! It’s light, has a great blade shape, very versatile knife with a lot of aftermarket bling options.

Breaking in my new arrival today. As much as I admire the real thing, I can’t bring myself to spend $500+ on it. If I did spend that much, I would never carry it. So here’s second best at around 15% the cost with no qualms about using and carrying it.

It’s a clone of the Spyderco Slysz Bowie. The genuine article retailed for about $200 a few years ago, but was discontinued due to slow sales. After it was discontinued, the secondary market became ridiculous. Used examples are selling for $450-600, new ones might fetch more than that. As much as I like the aesthetics and ergonomics, I can’t bring myself to spend more than $400 for what’s really a basic knife.

The clone goes for $75.

I blame @chooma for this purchase. Buttery smooth without the second detent and really fun to fidget with.

This is not the Manker E02 II that I expected in the mail today. This is a Sanrenmu 9165. Seems like I mixed up the tracking numbers in my list somehow. Big Smile

Finally a knife that I can carry without violating the law because it doesn’t lock when opened one-handed. Which is rather difficult due to the spring tension.

That is OK. Wink The law says:

Quote:
Section 42a
Ban on carrying fake guns and certain portable objects

(1) It shall be prohibited to carry
[…]
3. knives with a blade which can be fixed with one hand (one-hand knives) or fixed knives with a blade length of over 12 cm.

This means exactly “opened AND locked with one hand”. So it is OK to carry knives that will lock automatically, but can be opened only with two hands (like lockback knife with nail nick). Or knives that can be opened with one hand, but do not lock automatically in the same action. Inserting the lock pin is fine (and makes this a fixed knife with a blade length under 12 cm).

Fun fact: It is perfectly fine to carry a 30 cm folding knife (with the same limitations for opening/locking).

SOG Centi I slipjoint. So small and thin, it hardly adds any bulk to the key ring.

Sorry for the boring repetition…

Still carrying the Asher Nomad. I absolutely love this knife for its size, profile, blade shape, quality steel, action, and looks. It’s keeping me from buying any more knives! Big Smile

I feel like you do with the SRM 9306.

Got it for a friend who often goes to Germany with it’s strict knife laws and who “needs” a bottle opener Wink
8Cr13MoV is pretty meh to me usually, but this balde is so thin that it’s absolutely perfect for it (A Vic SAK blade has no better steel).

If I eventually gift it to him I must decide if I want to get the black one. Maybe better I order another shiny one for him.

Today it’s my new Free Tiger FT11. Very impressive all around. 14C28N blade, G10 scales and ball bearing pivot. Great pivot action, super sharp out of the box, and very good ergonomics.

My Future's So Bright...well, my flashlights are anyways.

Thank you. I was debating between the SRM and the Land 961. I don’t buy tons of knives so, I get two in my sights then can’t decided. I should just buy both. Wink

The weight difference might help you to choose. The SRM 9202 weights only 98 g / 3.46 oz thanks to its nested steel liners.
