Wow! Some really nice knives. I can tell you're a serious collector.

Got this one for X-Mas!



It's a Zero Tolerance 0456.

As far as my initial impressions are concerned, I'm really quite impressed with the chamfering, beveling and milling work that went into the handle. It's something that my picture doesn't quite capture and needs to be held in hand to be really appreciated.

I carry that skeletool with me almost everywhere. I love that thing. I want another one. So simple and so functional.

Nice one Seize! I like those because the design has a built in hand guard. My one issue is the size of most flippers makes them fairly big. I don't see many smaller sized ones but I haven't looked in quite a spell.

Plaza Cutlery had their annual show this past weekend. Was fun to hook up and see some of the knife crowd people. No purchases, just there to look and see what the trends are among knives. Been curious about flippers so possibly one at some point. One of the makers had an older Ken Onion circa 2007 which I liked.

Recently picked up a couple of Piranha automatics for my daily beater. Nice light knife for the price and it has a strong opening kick.

Following the knife show I've had urges for a new knife. What knife is part of your EDC gear? Pics welcomed, wondering if I can be tempted.

Hey Mike, do you happen to know what the stone material is used on those 2 Mel Nishiuchi knives? I have one with the same handle but cant find any info on the stone type nor Mels contact info? Any help would be awesome! I signed up just to ask.

We determined that the handle was Hypersthene.

My current knife that I carry around with me, it has a safety so that it doesn't open up on you accidentally.
