  • New knife...

    Nothing fancy but I picked up a Spiderco folder recently... Nice little blade. I also got a new Ka-Bar fixed blade in a "big brother" model. Not sure if I like the serrated back blade but my buddy at work liked it so it's his now. I like the little "rookie" folder. Solid little unit. It's got green G-10 scales and vg10 steel blade. Seems like it should hold up well for the abuse I typically give my knives.

    In fact I like so well I also ordered a JD Smith model with the same features.

    And then I ordered another one for my GF. Her's is a limited edition Delica with pink handle.

    More to follow...

      The ka-bar is gone... Google "big brother" It's a giant standard ka-bar fighter with black handle. I'll shoot a few to post up when the other two spidies get here.

        I have a g10 handle, of a Byrd , does yours open perfectly smoothly or does it grind slightly?

        Mine started grinding so i hand to remove a washer.

            My little Rookie is smooth as butter if a bit tight.

              If the old adage that you get what you pay for holds true, I'd tend not to expect much from a less expensive tool.

                  Rookie Review...(by bikesgunsandknives)




                  Mine locks up solid and was shaving sharp out of the box. This model is discontinued.

                          I'm betting the pink one is secretly yours.

                              The JD Smith is bigger than expected. Big is good.
