Those booth look nice but I am especially interested to hear what you think about the Buck 110 lite. Does it still have the feel of a 119 or is it more like holding an Endura 4 with a thicker grip? With those hardy Opuntia you have to be somewhere around Lethbridge, glad you have not been washed away with the rains. Watch out for rattlers I keep seeing videos of disturbingly large ones, never knew they grew that big.
I am in Lethbridge. Are you a biologist? I have never seen a rattler, though I hear they're here. Nice to see you're a fellow Albertan, bro.

I'm just getting used to 2 handers, in case we HAVE to, but I'm really enjoying them again. The LT's a thicker, very comfortable grip. Still feels like a regular 110. The lightness makes it just awesome. They are inexpensive, so you need to try one out.

Picked up a Inkosi Insingo to go with my Large Sebenza.
Actually been selling off quite a few Spydies, it’s amazing how many I have amassed in such little time haha.

Biologist? No I can barely get the" jist" of anything!
Take a look at a few of the big old rattlers you have in your back yard.

Earlier this year I got my first ZT and this month my first BM.
Can't say that they will dethrone my Spydies anytime soon, but I can see the appeal

Completely different for me. Obviously not a work knife for me. The patent is the back lock. The bar and spring are one piece. Quite cool. There’s a YouTube vid showing it dismantled somewhere. Boker or Fox Anso Zero knife.

I see. It’s similar probably with Nilte Quiete. :cool: mechanism.

looks very interesting Jazz, does it stay locked if you open the knife and then give it a wack on the spine, not killer hard just a good sharp tap on the spine? It is a serious looking knife.

Interesting lock implementation. Different from the Quiete. I watched Stefan Schmalhaus YT long time back, so my memory might not be correct but Quiete uses spring action at the depression part. Hard to describe.

Ah here it is from the net:
