    ehh.... I got over the beauty of that knife once I realized how poorly of an edc/user it is. It is a beast of a knife combining beauty with strength, but it kept slipping in my hands, PIA to carry (literally), and uncomfortable to use for long periods.

    yeah when I looked up the specs a few days ago I noticed the measurement were a little to large for my liking. I like the more medium to smaller knives.

    It prints in my pocket like a Benchmade 275 Adamas. If it had a leather belt sheath, I would carry it more often.

    Picked up a new one today - Case Sod Buster Jr. Peach seed jigged bone handle. I like a good skinner blade and it's small enough to sit perfectly in the pocket.

    Bought the knife new. Don't know how long they've been offering the peach seed jigging on the bone handle in the Sod Buster Jr. but I grabbed it up when I saw it. My first Case since I was a kid. I'm surprised how toothy an edge the stainless picked up with a touch from my croc sticks. I figured Case stainless was crap steel but it takes a good edge.

    I've not had a traditional pocket knife since I let my last one rust away as a dumb kid in the '80s. Been eying the GEC #42 Missouri Trader now. If anyone knows of one available in Ebony or Cocobolo, let me know!

    ETA - Ooh, or the Copperhead bone in the GEC 42. Like that one a lot too!

    Got this in the mail today! Another one for the pile.
    Yes, I know its another production benchmade...
    but its been discontinued and I've been wanting one for soooo long! Plus it was brand new, and I got a great deal on it.
    Its a very fine knife. If it had a pocket clip, it would make a great gentleman's EDC.

    Nice. man. I feel like Benchmade has nestled into a nice modern pocketknife niche for collectors. Lots of neat designs out there.

    It's called "American Hero". Got it on Ebay from KY knives based in Kentucky. Solid folding knife. All quality parts and just very sturdy in your hand. The spring assist is badass too.

    I have a few ZT elmax blades. I have read some bad reviews, but I love mine. Similar to S30V. Stays sharp, but like some of the harder knife steels, its better to use a diamond sharpening stone.

    Would you compare it to the M390 or S90V? Never used either. But I have used both the 154cm and CPM M4. Sounds like diamond sharpeners are the only quick way to put a great edge on these steels.

    Got some more since I last posted on this thread. Started looking for a good pocket knife to have when hiking trails. Started off with some small ones. Then started hiking in more undeveloped trails so got some beefier knives but not too big. Then it just got so addictive. I love the spring assisted knives. I would rather have a good fixed blade knife, but not a lot of them come with a sheath for left handers.

    Any reccomendation on a knife? Ka-Bar, Ka-Bar short, Seal Pup, Tanto, or get them all? I have two Benchmades and a Gerber already but was looking for something a little more Rambo! But still want it to be good quality not just Tacticool! Lol!
