Hi everyone. I figured it was time to introduce myself. My name is Scott, I live just outside of Calgary Alberta Canada and am I'm another long time lurker of the forum. I've had the knife sickness for about 25yrs now and bought my first spyderco (native5 frn) in 2007. Im guessing I have about 25 spydercos and about 60 knives total now
. Big fan of the manix2, pm2, and military as my usual edc. Really liking rex45 if I had to choose a favorite steel right now. Maxamet never ceases to impress also. That may change when the cruwear pm2 gets up here though! Can't wait. I have a decent knife collection overall. A few to mention would be a couple Randalls, a Fallkniven Frej (personal fave), Bob Dozier whittler, Chris Reeve large sebenza w desert ironwood inlays and i was lucky to pick up three one piece Chris Reeve knives before production ceased too. Most knives are users but I will admit to having about 10 safe queens. My babies
. I work construction and love the outdoors (avid shooter too, a whole other sickness that has eclipsed my knife collection!
) so have lots of opportunity to put my blades to work. And they get used a lot! Bought an Edge Pro a few years ago and full set of diamond stones so no problem putting a sick edge on anything these days. Worth every penny. The "bite" that maxamet has w an edge in 1100 diamond always makes me smile. Angry steel that stuff. Love it. This is only the second forum I've ever joined. Not a big online fan due to the high percentage of d-bags. A lot of forums I've checked out seem to have that toxic element that creeps in. Not here though! I have to say, well done people! Who would thunk that a buncha knife wielding maniacs (kidding of course......kinda) could be so civil and maybe even agree to disagree once in a while! World peace through knives. Makes sense to me! Cheers everyone. Scott
