Airport carry.

Forgot about this one.
Well, that's different for you. So used to seeing your several blades per day setup.

Hope you have good travels. :cool:
Yeah it feels very strange. I have those clipped in each a pocket to simulate the feeling. Can't wait to get my checked bag back. It has my spyderhawk and resilience in it.

No surprise that you have a Spyderhawk in the luggage.

Got a Mora Garberg stainless for my birthday. OK, I ordered it for my birthday :D Too good a price to pass up. I’ve been using the Kansbol heavily, it was my one knife challenge choice for a November. Will be interesting to try this Garberg out. Thicker blade, full tang and considerably heavier than the Kansbol. Should be fun :cool:

Yeah, a couple years ago I got a 14c28n Garberg at a screaming price too... after I already had Eldris and Kansbol. Before that all my Moras were wood handled. I think you'll like it.

An Eldris should land tomorrow! This is the most stainless I’ve had at once (excepting the kitchen knives) in *years*.

Bark River Bobcat hunter in CPM154 with brown jigged bone and brass hardware. Been carrying it for a few days now. Great size for edc with a 3.5 inch blade and about 7.75 overall. Also only about 2.25mm stock thickness.

Here's the Eafengrow I had mentioned in the what other is in the mail thread. $27, but not even remotely close to the quality of the $52 Bestech Swordfish I have. That Bestech, is almost as good, well hell, actually as good as any flipper I've had. I cannot say enough good about the Bestech Swordfish. On to the Eafengrow EF226 pictured. It's about a couple notches above gas station quality to be honest. Of course, maybe this particular model is just not that good. My little brother has an Eafengrow CH3001, and it's better. Not nearly as good as the Bestech, but certainly better than its counterpart EF226. At any rate, it's not a bad knife for $27 imo.
The flipping action is decent. It didnt come very sharp at all. However, I'll report back after I sharpen it. At any rate, that's my initial impression after 5 minutes of ownership :D

I have held a Swordfish in one hand and a 0452 in the other. While it is not a clone, they are way to similar for me. I have come close to buying the Swordfish many times. It really is decent quality for the price.

Yeah, I've had some very nice flippers and, for the money, nothing comes close to the Swordfish imo.
My cousin has one as well, but in a different color and his is just exceptional as mine. A sign of good quality control too.
