Urban price???

I was curious why the Urban is the same price as the UKPK? I would think with the UKPK being made in the US and using S30V, and the Urban which uses VG-10 and is made in Japan, would have different prices, but I guess I am wrong. The reason I am asking is because am looking at getting an Urban, but ...

After looking over my collection and looking back on some of my recent experiences, I have come to the conclusion that I need a knife that is a little bit more of a gentlemen folder. At the current time, I am using my FG Rookie as my gentlemen folder and it still just seems a little to informal for ...

In the $50 range, I'll vote for a Centofante 3 or 4. Very nice-looking lower priced knife, what with the silver bug on the handle, and thin blade makes for a great slicer. The C3 and the Barong keep fighting it out for my favorite :spyder: . I already have a Centofante III and I think I know how to...

For me the Native falls in the same category as the Tenacious, and that is that I already own one. I am really starting to like the sound of the SS Dragonfly though and I have been wanting to try an Endura for a long time as well, but please keep the suggestions coming.

thanks

Welcome to the forum. The first step is admitting that you have an :spyder: addiction :spyder: .
If you are in denial, just wait, it will happen, sooner than you think.

The Delica would be similar to several of the knives you already have listed in your signature...
That is honestly why I have been holding back on the Delica, but everyone keeps telling me that no collection is complete without one, but I am just not sure.

I've got one and I love it, but I am looking for something different.

How well does the SE work for EDC? I am just not that familiar with SE.

Why no love for the Remote Release?

I have been through many different forums and I can't seem to find a whole lot of discussions on the Remote Release II and I was just wondering why there was no love being shown? No, I don't have one, but I am thinking about getting one. Just curious.

If you were limited to about $50?

If you only had about $50 to spend what would you get? Depending on where you look that puts you in the range of the Delica, Endura, Dragonfly, Cricket, and even the Rescue.

I am going to throw my hat in the ring and say that you should try a Khukuri if you are looking for something different. There is a good video on YouTube that goes over some of the excellent features on this knife.

I have a SE Meerkat and I love it. It fits my hand well and the blade shape is very useful, but I have noticed some things about the knife that caused it to be removed from my EDC rotation. First off, the knife can only be carried tip down. Second, the combination of smooth handle scales and metal c...

I guess that answeres a good bit of my questions. It also narrows down my choices again to the Khukuri and the Caly 3. I will look at the Para and the Sage 1 on down the line. My signature shows my current collection and I really like the Khukuri, but I need a good user knife that is why I am consid...

Got some questions about a new knife.

I recently posted a thread about some knives that I am interested in and the more recommendations I got the more nervous I got. I had a couple of questions on some of the knives I was looking at and I was wondering if someone could help me out? First off is the Khukuri going to be a limited producti...
