      Agreed. Ball seat rounds just create a mess. That isn't something I want to deal with on a 10 round magazine.

      Not quite EDC but this is on the way, as a Christmas present from me to myself. Full tang, 20" blade and 31" overall length. Hard to beat for $102.50 shipped.

      Figured my first Becker should be something special. And yes, while the wait wasn't particularly long, it was brutal! Can't wait to take her outside and let her get some fresh air.















      It really does come with all the bells & whistles!





      Swapped out the the slabs. I liked the grivory just fine but I LOVE micarta.

      The Knife Connection has a few Griptilians, but I'm not sure about Fenix lights.

      Where are you going?

      You might want to check local laws before bringing a knife...

      For instance: In Germany, any knife that has an opening-assist (even that little nub on the blade) is illegal. Law enforcement can't even carry them during off hours.

      Heck my rule of thumb is to travel with as little "expensive" or nice stuff as possible. I never even carried a nice knife on duty - always had a cheapo Gerber throw-away knife. I couldn't imagine losing a $100+ knife while tusslin' in the dirt with some Tonk or climbing a mountain in the dark and it falling out without me noticing.

      I've heard a lot of praise for the RAT-1 folder, but the Izula will be a much better knife with much better build quality.

      Some nice pieces posted here. I recently got into knife collecting. Nothing major yet though. Some Gil hibben throwers, a really nice buck that I found cheap at a pawn shop (119 model I believe), a decent Ontario bowie that is more for looks than anything ( another cheap pawnshop find). I have a kershaw blackout as my daily knife. The wife thought I was nuts when my SOG tomahawk showed up.
      Thanks to this thread, my wish list got even bigger, as well as a little more knowledge about knife manufacturers, though I' m still a major nob on the subject. One question though, does anyone have a DIY link on cord wrapping?
      And where would I be able to buy cord from? Thanks.

      Goinggear.com is the best for flashlights, use discount code: sootch00 and get additional 10%off

      In Beijing now, I did bring both the Strider and the Emerson with me though. However, they are not my daily carried knives.

      Due to size constraints and strict regulations, my daily carry rotates between a Boker Stockman, Spyderco Dragonfly 2, and a Craig Wheatley custom necker.

      Carry a Leatherman ES4 with me all the time.

      A good light is more useful than a big ass knife

      Bonus points if you can acquire a broad sword to carry around and manage to escape arrest.

      You can buy paracord just about any online supply shop or army navy store.

      Here are some different techniques to wrap handles, they may look difficult but you'll get it.

      This is the Strider cord wrap method: http://www.striderknives.com/site/in...d=13&Itemid=29

      The ESEE version is much easier: http://www.eseeknives.com/esee-izula-sheet-back.pdf

      Here are some pictures for inspirations:
