    Added a few to my collection this week. Got my first Spyderco, and I dig it other than the clip being on the wrong end. It’s driving me nuts so I’ll have to move it.

    Also got a couple from a new company, Rosecraft Blades. I’d seen them on some videos from knife shows a few months ago. Their designs looked cool so I signed up for alerts for when they started taking orders. They went live last Friday so I ordered them. They feel pretty good, and have great action on them. I really like the black and red one. Pretty cheap also, less than a hundred bucks for both. We’ll see how the quality holds up.

    I really liked all the spyderco knifes I had, usually half serrated was my choice of blade.

    How's the quality? They have some really great color schemes (sadly the donut one is sold out) but they seem really affordable for what they are. Can never have too many knives and always looking for new wishlist items :fistbump:

    This one is a co-workers knife. After hearing how it came about it made me laugh and had to share.

    The knife is the exact replica of the Desert Warrior and seams to be a decent 50.00 knife. The guy that carries this blade has quite a collection of very nice knives...if this says something. He likes Ray's knives a lot and may be interested in hitting him up with a custom order.

    They're a great knife. Nice action and good quality, but if lost or damaged it's not the end of the world.

    That's exactly what he says. A great work knife and he doesn't have to beat up a 250+ dollar one.

    I used to go with half serrated as a standard but I’ve been drifting toward non serrated lately.

    Honey Badger knives fit this bill pretty well. Under 40 bucks and I’m very impressed with the ones I have.

    Did you notice that after holding the precious, you became stronger, more viral and desirable to women? These features are only a part of the enchantments bestowed on the knife.

    Except when I’m hanging upside down in my parachute harness and I need to cut myself loose before I pass out, I haven’t found many uses for the serrated blades. They do have tremendous ‘Tacticool’ appeal though.
