Attached this tiny Spyderco Bug knife to my keys for little jobs, or for those times I’m without a proper knife.
I really like the look of the flat ground blade. Eventually, I’m going to get the much larger Spyderco Military.
Picked up this Kershaw Skyline 1760 pocket knife for everyday carry.
Using it the past couple of days for miscellaneous tasks, I wholeheartedly agree with all of the rave reviews. It feels great in the hand. Not too big and not too small. It’s a manual flipper, but opens really easy with a slight flick of the wrist. Also, the liner lock is very secure. And for all of its utilitarian features (G-10 grip, simple pocket clip, and corrosion-resistant Sandvik 14C28N steel blade), it’s a handsome knife.
Since losing my EDC (every day carry) pocket knife, the Ken Onion designed Kershaw Leek in stainless steel, I’ve been feeling kind of naked. I thought about getting another Leek since that knife is so damn awesome, but figured I would take this opportunity to try something new. I did some research and came across this beauty, the Cricket by Spyderco.
What initially drew me to this was the shape of the blade. It looks like a stubby hawk beak or claw. Also, it is really thin, which makes carrying it pretty comfortable. The only real drawback is that it is a pretty small knife, which I guess is okay. Opening it with one hand will take some practice, but I think I can do it.
I got a new tanto knife for an upcoming camping trip (Sequoia), self defense, etc… I got it off of Amazon (best price!). Did some research and settled on Ka-Bar. I mean, if it’s good enough for the US military, it’s pretty adequate for me. Though Ka-Bar is more famous for their combat knife design, I’m a big fan of the tanto blade shape. Not only does it look badass, its shape has a practical application. That is, the thick pointed blade is great for penetration.
