I have quite a few Spyderco's in my collection, and are carrying a PE G10 Crossbill right now.It is one of my all time favorite knives.I use it for trimming plants and removing weeds around my Backyard.It is very elegant and holds its edge quite well.

I agree with the previous posts about getting a Weirhauch.If they seem too expensive for you the best deal on a quality accurate rifle is the Diana model 34.They have been around for a while and have proven themselves to be great value.Weihrauch makes a model called a HW50s that gives good bang for ...

They are just like any shapening stone, and can be filed ,put back to round,.Consider it maintenance.I use a diamond file to take any bumps out or smooth the abrasions.Don't be too fussy on Spyderco's :spyder: products, because the have to be made for a price point, and the more precision, the more ...

If I enter areas that need a little SD, I usually carry a Stinger and a Chinook.James Keating designed the Chinook as a Kubiton style weapon used for striking with the pommel end of the knife.Keating lives just a few miles to the south of where I live, and told me he is a firm believer in non-lethal...

As an alternative to the traditional Kubiton, I would suggest a design produced by James Keating, designer of the Chinook.It's a nasty little device that works very effectively. http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r173/gandalfe_photo/IMG_0108.jpg It comes in many colors and dosen't look like a weapon.

I believe Kershaws make good knives.Although Spyderco's make up most of my collection, I have a few Kershaws that I carry.My favorite is the Shallot.It is a solid, well made, stainless handled folder with an elegant look.It's in my pocket right now, and that says a lot for a guy with 30 plus knives.

Pink Spydies are almost impossible to lose or misplace.I carry my pink Endura all the time.It is so flashy and bright most people don't even identify it with being pink.Most people call it orange.We know it's pink though.

Hope I'm not going too far off topic but I consider Tissot watches the best I have ever owned.Own two Seiko's but consider them, not even in the same league, as the Swiss Tissot.Get a Pr50, a real bargain of the watch world.

Purple is my favorite colour.Spyderco is a bold enough company to pull this off.A purple Endura would go well with my pink one.They would even make a good team.

If he's a cheapscate anything over 30 dollars will be left at home.He will be too cheap to carry it.I suggest a Byrd G10 Cara Cara.Cheap enough for him to truly admire.I'm also too cheap to bring an expensive knife into the wilderness.Lost too many out there.
