Are they suppose to be hard to find? Both Canadian dealers I use have plenty in stock. They ship to US too so if you want one now get it from one of them.

Yep, if you look at knife shop inventories CE is always what they are stuck with, even long after model discontinued.

Might want to wait for more info to come out before starting all the tough talk. There are probably someone else with a gun in there given the amount of people, but given the panic and confusion not in a position to do anything (please no "oh I'd have put a round in his eye from 100 yards away", no ...

The yellow handle couldn't have helped. No matter how much buzz you hear on any color, black will still outsell it many times over. Seen this on many things other than knives.

Forget mouse pad, you'll die of old age first especially if you need to reprofile the edge, time to get a 1x30" belt sander.

Don't really care as long as it's readable, I know I don't pay that much attention to mine since I'm not writing an academic paper.

If anything formating annoys me more so than grammar/spelling, things like wall of text, intentional weird color/font/size etc.

That analogy doesn't hold up. Fine, insert analogy of your own choosing. So your advocating blatant IP theft? Ok, that extreme looks way better ;) . If a knife has a dozen parts I think you can credit the inventor. If the writing gets too tiring the maker could try...inventing something new. I'm sa...

I know some people will hate me for saying this, but the homage gotta stop at some point, either after a certain time or after it attains certain commonality. How many of you still attach Alexander Bell's name to your phone?

Not really comparable since the oversea examples all use higher grade of material, then there's your dollar losing almost 40% of its value in the past couple years, that add up pretty quick.

Depends on how much you use heat. If you like to keep your place toasty warm in winter I'd go with heat pump, otherwise there isn't much point. They work exactly the same in summer, only when producing heat one use heating element the other use compressor except running reverse (compare to AC).

I don't want a rounded spine, a square (doesn't have to be sharp) spine can be used as a scraper in many instances you don't want use a sharp edge for it.

Plus it saves labor and make things cheaper.

Doubt it they would send the parts, their lawyers wouldn't let them do it for fear of liability if anything goes wrong.
