What's a knife that you owned and used, then decided to sell....and eventually wound up buying again?
I recently did that with the Perrin Street Bowie.
I purchased one 5 years back.
I'd carry it hiking...
...and it was also my companion for my first cross country bike tour, where it handled my food prep and helped me clear out spots for my hammock:
3 years ago I decided to part ways with it, trading it for the SE Pacific Salt that made me warm up to SE and CE knives. I rationalized it by telling myself my Aqua Salt can cover the same roles, and I'd probably carry the folder more often. To be fair, I think both of those things were true, and the SE Salt is my most frequently carried folder most months....
But, this week I got a new one. Made a trade for this and another fixed blade for one of my folders.
Didn't realize how much I missed this design!
It's very light. Very ergonomic. Ground nice and thin behind the edge, making it a superb utility cutter. The sheath is flawless, one of the better factory sheaths I've seen.
It's a very nice package, and using it a few times today to trim up some trails and quarter an apple, I question why I ever parted with it.
When have you experienced something similar with a Spyderco?
