Lsaulog,

Still working on it. How are the oranges today? <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle>

Very well, thanks. <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle>

I just posted a WTB on blade forums for el grillo but I noticed you already did one on 11/17th. Great minds think alike!

After all this research on finding a pink Cricket, I've become quite fond of the Cricket. I have fallen under it's spell... <img src="tongue.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle>

Now the question becomes, serrated or plain edged! Your opinion on this?

Great minds DO think alike...

So, the quest continues...for the Pink Cricket, with teeth! <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle>

Speaking of, remember to brush. Brush, Often. I just finished the final steps of my first and hopefully LAST, root canal. OUCH!! Not only does it hurt your mouth, it hurts the wallet too! Double OUCH!! <img src="sad.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle>

Guess I'll have to hold of expanding my Spydie collection. Well, at least for now! <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle>

Lsaulog,

AGH!! That must really hurt both ways... When I had my wisdom teeth removed (now I have no wisdom at all <img src="tongue.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle>) my mom gave me clove to chew on for the pain. Try some, you might smell like soup the rest of the day, but if the pain decreases, hey, it's worth it. <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle>

You've got mail, Kahz!

BTW, since you'll be visiting the Great North, you might want to find out how close you'll be to Europe Bound, 383 King W, Toronto, ON M5V 1K1 (416)205-9992. As la_benge suggested, they may have a Pink Cricket in stock! I tried calling but since it's an International call, it's blocked from my office phone line. <img src="sad.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle>

FWIW the pink Cricket was only produced with a serrated edge, so plain edge is not an option. However I prefer plain edge on this knife (and almost every other <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle>) because it accentuates the beautiful lines of the blade. I know I've mentioned this before but I use my aluminium Cricket as a model when my Year 7 students are designing plastic keyring ornaments. I get them to think of a worn river pebble (the inspiration for Sal's design) and show them the shapes of the scales and blade as examples. Needles to say my classes always produce the most interesting designs <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle>.

Jeff,

Well I'm as sure as I can be, although I've been known to have a senior moment or two <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle>. IIRC there was some criticism of both the pink Cricket and Delica when they were brought out for both being available as serrated only. It was thought that this might effect their target market (presumably women) and the circunstances where they might be used (those were the days when you could still carry knives on planes <img src="sad.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle>).
