How's the smock compare to other comp locks? Especially Golden ones, I haven't really owned many comp locks other than the watu and ikuchi, and I'd love to try some different ones. Also I've never seen Battlestar Galactica, I better get to it!JuPaul wrote: ↑Wed Nov 25, 2020 4:04 pmWell something fidgety seems in order! A Smock would be my suggestion.
Or maybe new scales for a current model so you have a project?
I hope you recover quickly and easily! My step-daughter just finished two weeks of quarantine at her mom's house. She tested positive after a friend from her school got sick, but was asymptomatic and luckily didn't spread it.
Edit to add: if you like Star Trek, have you seen Battlestar Galactica? It'd be a great quarantine binge.
I like the idea of that... How comfortable is the handle on the Province? It seems like the ideal knife for bashing but I'm a little more drawn to the shape of something like the Sustain. It's a little sleeker.
The Smock is different from other comp locks since it has a button on the show side that actually disengages the comp lock (rather than the usual tab on the spine). Combine that with the corner flipper tab, and you've got a knife that takes the comp lock's usual fidgetability to a whole new level. But the Shaman is another favorite of mine - it's a big beefy tank with excellent ergos and scale contouring. Either of those excellent knives will help you get through this!Abyss_Fish wrote: ↑Wed Nov 25, 2020 4:38 pmI can't thank you all enough for the kind words. I'm for the most part asymptomatic, so I'm lucky there. But so many people around me are susceptible, I've just got to be careful. Also right now I'm getting oddly drawn towards the Shaman, if only the sprints weren't 300+ bucks, maybe I'll go for it anyways...

Full serr shaman. Hmmmm.Evil D wrote: ↑Wed Nov 25, 2020 5:07 pmPerfect opportunity to come over to the Dark Side and get something with serrations and a Sharpmaker (if you don't have them already).
Otherwise I'm a big fan of Seinfeld, South Park, The Office, Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, Dexter, Futurama, Sons of Anarchy, Married With Children, King of The Hill...that should hold you down for a bit.
I've got the BBS 204p Domino and their k390 pm2 and para3. That Military is on my wishlist. I personally think their exclusives are worth the $15 shipping.
I have both of those knives and you cannot go wrong with either knife.
I second that. I've been Watching the entire series of House recently, one of our cable channels has been playing them in order, but I don't think I could binge watch it.
I agree with the sharpening part. Get a good sharpener, and you could spend hours on each knife getting it to a mirror edge. DO NOT START WITH YOUR BEST KNIFE!
