My MOP Kopa is my EDC. It was a gift from my wife for our 20'th anniversary. I carry it in a small sheath to keep its clip from scratching up my cell phone, which I carry in the same pocket. That has the effect of keeping the knife from getting scratched up too. No, I've never heard of beausage. Bes...

Diamonds are a camper's best friend

I think Tricod is on the right track. DMT makes good stuff. A lighter, cheaper, alternative is something like: http://www.basspro.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/Product_10151_-1_10001_43732?cm_mmc=froogle-_-400-13-6-_--1-_-38-477-443-00&hvarAID=froogle&mr:trackingCode=B207FCE1-FD74-DC11-BE2A-00142210...

That was engraved by Fred Carter of Wichita Falls, TX. There are photos of some other :spyder: he has engraved if you search through the Forum. Jurphaas has a Kopa and a couple of Crickets engraved by Fred that were inspirational for my wife and I in deciding on this as an anniversary present. Fred ...

EDC Kopa

The engraved Kopa my wife gave me for our anniversary is my EDC. I was a little worried about scratching it up, but a few scratches over the next 20 years will just give it some more character for when I pass it along to a grandson or granddaughter. I am more worried about it scratching up my cell p...

... I don't think there's any real middle ground between "that guy has a dangerous-looking knife" and "that guy doesn't have a knife", or if there is, you're not gonna get there by waiting to open it. Looking for that middle ground is part of why my EDC is a fancy engraved Kopa with obvious sentime...

It's not because I'm sleepy...

"Sleepingrobot" came about when trying to come up with a domain name. It came out of a session of nonsensical name parings with the family. The other leading candidate from that session was yuckyoatmeal.com (which is still available, have at it!). My wife and I got a good laugh but the kids nixed th...

I think you will be safe with Kopa. Sadly, no. My Kopa spydie-drops better than my Native, because of the extra mass in the liners and the smoothness of the action. But it looks less threatening ( http://spyderco.com/forums/showthread.php?t=26507) . Of course, if security at a baseball game wants t...

Congrats

Congrats to OutofGum!

On the subject of bagels - back in college a friend of mine turned up with a bandaid on his left index finger. "What happened Eric?" I ask. His roommate jumped in to say "He was slicing a bagel with his finger through the hole!". :eek:

Best regards,

OutofGum beat me to the bagels. :)

How about cutting themselves doing yardwork?
That's sort of the bane of my Sunday mornings.

Odd man out?

I kind of like the dent. I don't see it as a big necessity - I've never had my locks disengage during typical use (which, I admit, is pretty light-duty). But I don't see them as destroying the aesthetics of the knife either - even on a Kopa. ;)

Agreed. I would also prefer something affordable
by as many of the forum members as possible.
My vote would be for a Cricket, possibly one of
the upcoming etched ones if they can be
engraved OK.

from a formerly-silent observer...

wonder what some of the other, more silent forumites think of the design/project? I think this is great, for several reasons. Having an ethnic-inspired design and contributing to the region sounds great. I can't guarantee I'll buy one now, but I will sure look into it if/when it becomes a reality. ...

According to other posts in the forum, it will be laminated.
