Where has kbrouwer been?

Hello Everyone, You may have noticed I haven't posted in a while. No, I won't be quitting this forum any time soon. Long story short, I'm just really busy. I hope to become more active on this as things settle down. I recently came home from a trip to Europe, in less than 24 hours I'll be on a plane...

Pix would really help, but, I haste to break it to you, but from what you're saying, it does sound like China has upped their game.

There's no other explanation for them but the fact that they're just cool (except brown)

Yeah, I don't like brown G10 but if you like it I'd go ahead, there is a huge market for Spyderco Sprint Runs ESPECIALLY Paramilitary 2s, if you don't like it you will have no trouble selling it for equal or even more value.

The P'Kal has an odd blade shape, meant to be held edge in. I'd say no.

Thank you everyone who gave mew some ideas. As I continue to say, Im looking for a swiss made watch. I don't really like the semi-high end Japanese brands such as citizen. If you would, please continue to give me input.

Is it right to carry knives in church?

I'm Catholic and go to church on Sundays. I'm actually an alter server. I usually take my knives out of my pockets and put them in my drawer before church. I'm not looking to get all into biblical philosophy and everything, just some yes's and no's. Do you think it's right to carry a knife in church?

I like several watches and came very close to the "moon watch" as one that suited me and I could afford. I don't know what happened to me but I ended up getting a couple of Seiko Kinetics. The watches varied in how much of a charge they could hold and even how quiet the mechanism was. The heavy sta...

The Citizen of the Swiss Watch Industry (one of a few watch threads you'll be seeing)

A while ago I posted a thread about a luxury watch. As you may have noted, I said I liked Omega watches. I also said my dad has on Omega constellation that he doesn't really wear and I might be able to get it fit for me. It turns out, a few days later, I realized it was actually a birthday gift from...

Idea: Sharpmaker "Professional"

The sharpmaker is a great and pretty versatile system, however, with some slight additions, it could be even better. It would be cool to see Spyderco come out with a larger, more "professional" version of the sharpmaker. Here are some ideas for features: :spyder: A few more angle options :spyder: A ...

I want to techno but that guy's new kitchen folder design is what I'd really want as opposed to it unless a bigger, slightly redesigned techno comes out.

I do that with the manix 2 index finger though. Now because of all these posts, I want a Para2 even more :(

Native Lightweight First Impressions

Just got the package like an hour and a half ago so these are legit first impressions on the Native lightweight. :spyder: I thought it'd be a little bigger but that's kind of ok because as I said, I'm probably going to use it for Boy Scouts. My troop is funny about large knives. :spyder: Has the usu...

Your Favorite Knife To Play With

We all have our knives we like to carry, the ones we like to cut with, the ones we like to look at, etc, but what knife do you like to sit playing with when watching TV? For me, it's the Navaja, the carraca pivot is extremely addictive and it's fun to do "tricks" with. If you don't know what I mean,...

Wallets?

Which wallet do you carry on a daily basis? I have a low end "Wallet Depot" wallet but was looking to "upgrade." As of now, I'm probably going to go for a Hugo Boss offering. I'm looking for leather with minimal card slots (3-4 if possible) because I'm 15 years old, only cards I need to store are a ...

btw, ordered a native ltwt

Partly to distract me from my obsession with finding a Para2 but primarily because I wanted a knife that had a reasonably sized (not too small, not to big) sized blade with good ergos to have for camping and harder use tasks. Essentially a knife I wouldn't feel bad sending to hell and back. I do hav...
