I have this knife, I have had it a long time so it must be good. It cost a lot, like R500.
Its so sharp it cuts paper easily.

You can cut like a whole piece of biltong before you need to sharpen it again, its really good steel.

Its a Gerber, good stuff like Bear Grylls.

dankie Hardy, ek wou al verkoop, maar toe weer besluit om te hou, 'n redelike prys 2de hands sal my dalk iets laat verloor wat moeilik kan vervang.

Ek sou hom hou - moer spesiale Bestech daai

Vir baie jare dra ek nou al elke dag hierdie cheapie saam met my. Ek het drie van hulle, maar twee is veilig gebÍre vir wanneer hul dag kom.

As ek die geld kan hÍ van die hoeveelheid springbok biltong wat hy al gekerf het en voersakke wat hy al oopgesny het dan was ek n ryk man. Ek het wel n Joseph Rogers wat iemand my persent gegee het, maar gebruik hom nie ,want ek is te bang ek verloor hom.

This is my EDC - Bestech Texel with D2 steel.

I have a sh!tload of knives.
Most inherited, some self bought.

I always have one in the pocket, but they are mostly cheapies.
The sentimental and more expensive cutters are all locked away.

One of my daily carries :
I have one of these, one of my favorite knives

It was a group buy present for one of the (now undercover) Rebelz Bike weekends.
@Allegro was involved in the sourcing, personalised engravings and such.

Ek is nou nie wat mens kan noem 'n versaamelaar nie maar ek het 'n paar messe in my besit.  Meeste het ek al baie jare en 'n paar het vir my besonderse sentiment daaraan gekoppel.  Niks is baie spesiaal in terme van meskunde nie.  Meeste gebruik ek omtrent glad nie, behalwe natuurlik my Leatherman Supertool 300 wat ek elke dag dra en gebruik  Hy is tans by Awesome Tools vir 'n reparasie.

'n Paar kiekies:

1. 'n Kershaw wat 'n eks meisie vir my as Kersgeskenk gegee het.  Sy het nogal goeie smaak gehad. Ek glo die mes is ook nogal nie tť sleg nie .  :lol8:

2. My CRKT M16-13SFG.  Hierdie is waaragtig 'n lekker mes, hy loop saam oral waar ek af van die plaas gaan as my EDC saam my kettie. Hy gaan jou sny dat jy na jou ma verlang.

3. Sommer 'n goedkoop KA-Bar Dozier Design mes wat ek op Takealot gekoop het om elke dag hier op die plaas te dra.  Ek sny baalnette met hom oop en hy hou nogal sy skerp verbasend lank vir sulke rowwe werk.

4. en 5. Ook 'n redelike goedkoop klein Victorinox Swiss Army mes, die rooie.  Kan nie sy geskiedenis onthou nie maar hy en die silwer een woon in 'n laai.  Die silwer een het ek by my Pa gekry en terwyl hy maar 'n Victorinox kopie is, is hy spesiaal omdat my Pa hom vir my gegee het.

6. Jammer Hardy, dis nie 'n knipmes nie maar ek dog hy hoort dalk ook hier as spesiale benoeming.  Dis my pa se dra mes wat uit die vroeŽ 50s uit dateer.  My pa het baie werk in Sentraal en Oos-Afrika destyds gedoen toe Afrika nog wild was. Ek wil sy ou 8mm films op DVD oorplaas want hulle is waaragtig 'n TV series werd.  Dis Afrika soos ons hom nooit ooit weer sal sien nie.  Wild wat volop en nie menssku was nie, ongerep, bitter min mense en dorpe, willer as die Wildtuin.
" 'n Man wat nie vyande het nie deug nie vir 'n vriend nie. "
