      wow, this is a resuscitation of an old thread. I don't feel that way about the Boker urban pen knife anymore after owning one for a few weeks.

      Here's a new one:



      Unfortunately it is going back to the factory for repairs due to dumbass friend...lesson learned, never letting him touch anything of mine again

      Yes it is, but I haven't bought a new blade for awhile, so I haven't really been bumping it. I'm excited for the kershaw, then when work picks up I want to pick up a esee 6 or junglas

      I hear you about friends & blades.

      I'm picking up an old RAT 6 this weekend, still the same as an ESEE 6. Will post up pics of it when I get it

      I recently picked up a Spyderco Endura with a plain edge. Seriously I can't say enough good things about. 3.75" blade is plenty big and super sharp. It's nice and light but feels incredibly strong. It locks up tight and feels like a fixed blade. I just love it. I've gone from Gerbers, to Kershaws, to Benchmades and now to Spydercos for EDC. I won't need to look for a new EDC for a while. This thing is just delightful.

      Of the hundreds of knives I own this is my favorite. A vietnam camillus pilot knife.



      This is the one that is always in my pocket. It is hardly a weapon but I never leave home without it.

      It could be a weapon if need be. I try to stick to the mentality of anything can be a weapon if the situation dictates. I can think of an awesome example in a movie where a ball point pen is employed as a weapon. Don't sell your little Kershaw short

      Didn't pick up the RAT 6, got a Spyderco Hossom instead. Got a Sharpmaker so decided to touchup/sharpen everything I own:



      The Endura is my absolute favorite worker/edc. Out of all my knives, the most duplicate models that I have are different varieties of Enduras.

      My favorite knife, camillus cqb black ops. I got one for my dad for Christmas back in 2005 for $60, wish I had bought another, they're outrageously expensive now.

      Figure I'd post my family shot here too:

      I need to be welcomed to the ESEE family I just picked up an Izula. I've had it for about a week now. It hasn't left my side. Such a great knife.

      No, not yet. But good lord this little thing is tough. I got the kit with all the sheath accessories and the flint stick. I started a fire with it in the fire place where I work just because I could and all my coworkers were amazed at my boy scout skills. It's a great little knife. It has definitely replaced a folder as my EDC. I sure would love to get my hands on a HEST. You have an awesome collection there.

      Most people get bit while wrapping their Izzy. I managed to wrap mine without losing any blood, but I did get bit after wards.

      I do love the HEST like no other though.

      wow I just kept it in the sheath. Seemed like a no brainer to me. And correct me if I'm wrong but they don't make the HEST anymore, do they?

      When wrapping the Izzy I wrap the blade in tape. Been safer doing that then keeping it in the sheath.

      The HEST is indeed discontinued, though DPX has a new version in the works. The HEST folder hasn't been the success he thought it would be.

      I liked the HEST until I saw the handle with the glassbreaker tip (or whatever it is for). I don't care who you are...twist/sit/move wrong and it looks like it would poke you pretty bad. No thanks.

      Yeah I could see that but my intention would for it to be worn on my MOLLE vest or a thigh rig. I don't really see it being a problem in either of those locations. Not on my belt or waist where, yeah, it would definitely poke.

      I carried my HEST horizontal at 3 o'clock and it didn't poke any more then any other knife.

      I really wanted to like the HEST /F seeing as it was made by lionsteel and they make some great knives. But after seeing all the QC issues they were having and after reading up on RYP and seeing how big of an asshat the guy has been on bladeforums i just can't do it. I'm glad that ESEE knives (formerly RAT) kicked him to the curb. The Juglas is a nice replacement for the HEST fixed blade. I just picked up a new ZT 0551 which is a collaboration with Rick Hinderer knives and its amazing.

      It seems like everyone is getting a ZT 0551 these days. Is there something in the water?

      I got a columbia river m16 for "free" from snap-on with the purchase of a socket set and I also found that it was too big to carry around but that's just me. I also have a concealed carry permit, so self defense is the last of my concerns when purchasing a knife. Also too, I witnessed a fatal stabbing one time and I don't think I have the stomach to do that to someone. It was by far the most horrible thing I've ever seen.
