If you look carefully it's a series of wheat stalks. Apart from being a fantastic knife maker and designer, Ed is also a dry wheat farmer and owns about 2,500 acres of land.

Picture Request: Ti UKPK

I haven't been around much recently. I hope you're all doing well and enjoying the start of Summer. I was curious as to whether or not those who own a Ti UKPK could post some pictures? Jeff over at CS is having a special on them right now and I couldn't resist. However, ordering on the weekend means...

I was born in and spent the first 18 years of my life in the United Kingdom. There is a surveillance camera for every 14 people there. Also, they protested outside of the American Embassy in London. I was there only three or four years ago and the security is incredible. There are more surveillance ...

I don't really see how the death of a human being is something to celebrate. There's no question he was evil, but I don't see the point of commemorating the fact a man was shot in the head by a SEAL with a sprint run.

To each their own and all that.

I stopped using pocket clips when I snagged the clip of an $800 custom Terzuola on a wall. It yanked the clip so hard that the carbon fiber around the screws shattered and chipped off.

You should have seen my face and heard the words that came out of my mouth.

As others have said, for the money I'd rather get an Austin Martin fully spec'd.

Replies: 56
Views: 11497

This is a horribly difficult decision, but I would go with the Sebenza purely because it can be taken apart, cleaned, and reassembled entirely without any trouble. In fact, Chris designed it so that the end-user could do that. However, I still feel that the Spydiehole is the ultimate opening method ...

In my opinion, the only way to truly appreciate the cost of a Sebenza is to buy one, carry it for a month, take it apart, clean it, reassemble, and use it a little more. You'll quickly understand why the knife costs $330 - $380. As much as I love Spyderco, the Sebenza is the king of pocket knives fo...

If I remember correctly, Sal said a fixed blade sprint would not be possible right now as another manufacturer is utilizing that specific design.

In some states if you live in the same state as the online store you are required to pay sales tax.

If you're that worried about radiation you might want to stop microwaving your food, using a cellphone, and looking at your computer screen. It's all emitting radiation. Actually, you know what, I'd be more worried about the fact your own body is currently emitting radiation. Heat is a form of radia...
