Oh no, I'm a day late! :D

This Friday, was Spyderco Gayle Bradley Junction FB38GP carry day for me. Man, I love this thing!

Specs are as follows. For those of you who need a reminder.

Specifications:

Blade Length: 4.15"
Cutting Edge: 3.63"
Overall Length: 8.45"
Blade Thickness: 0.098"
Blade Material: PSF27
Blade Grind: Full-Glat
Blade Edge: Plain
Blade Style: Drop Point
Handle Material: G10
Sheath: Boltaron G-Clip
Model Number: FB38GP
Model Name: Junction
Designer: Gayle Bradley
Weight: 4.1 oz.

Besides being surprised, by how much better this knife is, than I thought it would be. I am extremely impressed with the PSF27. Such a fantastic steel. I'd love to see D2 go away in all knives, in favor of PSF27.

Image
Had it in the kitchen for 3 months and loved the steel and shape of the blade.
This has become my favourite 4x4 knife to have in the car.
Always stop and cook a feed when out for the day 4x4ing and mate was so impressed he picked one up before they became discontinued.
Im a vegetarian as technically cows are made of grass and water.

That's more combined blade length than a broadsword! :p
And no doubt Vash is packing a Spyderhawk and maybe a few others. :p
Of course I have the Spyderhawk. I never leave home without it.

Had a Mule with me today and received a pukko this afternoon from Bulgaria. :)

That's not a bad idea. More pockets means more knives.

Just a little bit
Looks like you’re travelling fairly light, Vash. ;)

You just lazing round the house, mate? :p
You just never know when someone will challenge you to a duel in Louisiana. Could even be a family member in the house.

Maybe it's time for an intervention :D
You're right. I'm just not carrying enough knives. I'm so ashamed.

Some good videos on YouTube, great in between knife as your looking for but just as good as a small camp knife if needed. I have been really impressed with the steel as it’s the first time I’ve used it.
Great size for hiking or day or two camping so you will find it suits your needs perfectly.
Im a vegetarian as technically cows are made of grass and water.
