Just an (overdue) update.

Golden worked their magic on the Rescue and didn't charge a cent. The two knives are peacefully co-habiting.

Thanks spyderco for excellent customer service. :spyder:

Just don't let your Rescue get jealous, or it might give you a little love bite to remind you who's been around for you for over a decade! :eek: :) On the contrary, the Rescue will have soon be pampered: living in dry, warm pockets and rucsacs. The Salt, on the other hand, will be left neglected in...

Just a cautionary tale, I carry my cricket in the watch pocket of my Levi's but it has an occasional habit of jumping out. It seems to be when I'm wearing a jacket with a fitted (elastic drawcord) hem, which lifts it. More secure in the "proper" pocket.

Yog,

I guess there are more sheeple here in the UK perhaps where having an EDC is considered odd. I'm a teacher and my EDC is a cricket PE, I've got by with no problems tho' obviously I'm discrete and don't wave it about. I wouldn't carry anything bigger for work.

High school teacher of biology.

Someone else suggested a Toad to dissect toads, how about a mouse to dissect mice or even ocelot to dissect......

My EDC is a cricket, I don't dissect locusts but do use it on a daily basis.

FRN PE, as my EDC. I love it, only complaint is that the pivot slackens up after hard use (hard by cricket standards, my rescue would handle it fine!). This is easily resolved with a Phillips screwdriver. Could there be a problem with the pivot?

What do you want it for?

Rescue and Delica/Endura have fundamentally different blade shapes and are designed for different tasks.
