Guys I'm struggling to bond with my CRKT and almost about to pull the trigger on a new Spyderco Endura. Man this knife thing is an illness.

The serrations or the knife in general ?

In General. I have a huge soft spot for Spyderco especially the Endura and Native
Pass this way once!

I love my PM2. Spydercos are great knives. You know what to do.

Been using the CRK exclusively for about 6 months now and the PM2 is my do random abusive nonsense knife. I do have space for a couple of fixed blades. I ordered a cleaver from Ghato. But thats just for collection. I think from now i will support the custom knife guys.

Yeah I ordered the Braai, Biltong and Beer knife from Ghato. Tom is also gifting me a knife so I think I am pretty set for awhile.

The CRK Nyala is right on top of my wishlist.

Will have to find a second hand one though.

Maybe a disease, but I received a folder today that I bought on looks, a bit disapointed, looks good on photos and think it will do a job, but feels not worth it.
Think CIVIVI should do away with the nice pouch and free cap and focus on the knife

Sorry to hear, which one did you get?
I know the Elementum is rather popular.
I havent had a Civivi to date in hand yet but the one featured here with the copper flakes scales and Damascus steel blade is doing it for me on the pictures.
Not cheap at $100 for me but thinking about it.

Chinese manufacturer that has only impressed me this far is Kizer, especially with the Dukes and the mini Sheepdog.
I havent told anybody at work they are Chinese folders and the guys would not bother to google since they are Benchmade diehards but all of them were very impressed by these knives.
Yet the ‘plain Jane’ came and stole the show in the ‘working class’ folders dor me in the form of something I have never even heard of before and that is Citivien.
Pity we all are spread out so far, would have been nice to have a ‘knife and Tomahawk’ bash where everyone could have  showed their blades

Remember how some said the mini Sheepdog is too small and the XL Sheepdog is to Large?

I bring to you:

Yes! That is one of my favourites, they originally came in that size and then came the mini and XL.
The titanium one was my first Sheepdog.
