Thanks, Sword and Shield. It is a whittler. Appreciate that info.
Gatekeeper. I expect I am going to buy one Benchmade in the near future. Will either get the 710, which I think is going to be one of the defining knives of the tactical folder group in history, or the Griptilian, and be a bit cheap about it.
I've just read too many posts about quality problems with both Benchmade and Emerson -- also notable by it's absence -- to put my money into them. Some of the things that have appeared on the EK site, and the writings of some of the fans, push all my negative buttons, and I wouldn't buy them for anything.
Still have several productions I want, including some more Spydercos, but I feel so comfortable with my carry rotation, that I just don't want to change it, at least for now.
