Y’all can count me with the folks who thought this was about BHQ exclusives, lol! As it happens I’ve got my BHQ para 3 in my pocket now, it’s my most common edc sharing time with the #2 carry, a para 3 in cruwear
Personally I go through spurts of excitement/interest. I have other interests than knives, and most are much more expensive. It’s kinda funny that I’m hesitating tracking down a Millie in REX45 when I’m also contemplating a $900 Toelke longbow...
I was hooked on Spyderco long ago with the C01 Worker and a C03 Hunter, which looks a lot like a small Stretch. Then a C30 Remote Release; then I was led astray for 20 years by that other company which shall not be named. The last 7 years were due to distractions including significant promotion at work and growing a family (2 sets of twins, bogo is how we roll!). Joined here summer 2018 while looking for a new edc, it just so happened that the BHQ M4 para3 dropped when I was ready to buy. I scooped it up since I liked M2, and at the time was lamenting that it seemed all the regular production knives were S30V, a steel I was unhappy with at the time. It was good timing, and after 15-ish Spyders since then it remains my favorite. I’ve definately cooled down since that spree, but I still get excited by the sprints and exclusive versions of patterns I love, and am looking forward to more. 4V? The LW looks good...
Now the threads I like to read most are other people sharing their excitement and in-depth reviews like Vivi’s written and video review of the Waterway.
I also greatly
appreciate that members here including SG88 take the time to answer the repeat threads, rather than snarkily comment the newbie needs to learn to use the search function. That’s a great way to squash interest and enthusiasm, and stands as the classic example in need of Thumper’s mom’s advice: if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all!
Thank you all for your contributions, and stick around!
