DPx Hest: I think I will be looking at getting one of these next year in one of the formats:

Looks like one hell of a hard use folder.

I am not one for folding cleavers but I like Andre De Villiers's work https://advtactical.co.za/product/battle-cleaver-m390/

I could do with the Harpoon F17 Fragged

And he is a local guy  :thumleft:

I had the original HEST folder, pretty much the last picture posted. (Green and D2) 
It was beefy but developed rock lock after a while. I doubt its hard use credentials.

Stick with the American Lawman ;)

Had an extra pocket clip lying around from a Buck 722 Spitfire. Ergonomically it is good on my Griptilian but I am not convinced. Overall it is a flatter profile than the Benchmade clip. I'll carry it around for a while and see if it works for me.

Apart from it kind of being in the way of the lanyard hole which is not a problem for me there just seems to be something amiss aesthetically or is it just me ?

Not enough  :biggrin:

Maybe 45 - Maybe less maybe more. I have them stashed all over, tool boxes, sheds, cars, backpacks and in two Zero Tolerance bags( ZT Bags are my daily/weekly rotation knives). I can never be without a knife. Some are cheap and some are expensive. For the most I do try have them all be of relatively good quality. The one I am least impressed with and actually disappointed with is the Buck 722 Spitfire custom. For the money I am not happy with the overall construction, hardware and action of the knife.

 :biggrin: Certainly. The thing is I suppose you can call mine a working collection if you wish but I do not collect. I use every single one of my knives. Each one has its merits and flaws, some are carried as EDC, some beaters and some for specific tasks.

Should I leave South Africa's shores one day I will be most pissed off with other countries laws regarding knives you are allowed to carry. But that will open up a whole load more knives to get my grubby hands on  :biggrin:

I did a little test tonight.

I used the CRK and the CRKT biltong knife with a really sharp factory grind. And the bloody CRK won. Its a better biltong knife than the dedicated CRKT  :lamer:

Believe it or not Uncle Chris knew what he was doing,

Can't wait for mine. The wife is giving it to me as a Christmas present. So unfortunately when it arrives, I get to look and touch and then have to wait for it.

For those that are not sick of my posts here is the Titanium PM2. I put new scales and hardware on it. I like it.
