I would politely disagree that the LB Hawkbill could be in any way inferior. :D

Re: Sharpmaker

I wonder whether they will ban phosphor bronze washers.... the risk to anyone disassembling their knife must be considerable.

Re: Native M390 - choose yours

N5 G10 for me. I much, much prefer the liner less version over both the lined and frn ones.

Re: We already have the solution. Now what we need is to find the problem

Absolutely! I don’t know about anyone else, but I will balk at spending 00’s on tools I regularly use, but not on knives I rarely use. Here’s another question .... what cost more? The shoes you are wearing or the knife in your pocket? ! In my case, the shoes. :D I am on a dark suit Monday to Friday...
