Someone on one of the S&W forums started a photo thread of "Revolvers And Knives," so I threw this shot together and submitted it. One of my "helpers" was sitting on the windowsill above the glass swatting her tail back and forth. I had to time it right so I didn't get a tail in the photo.
I'm kind of new around here. Tell me about that glass.
It's called a BenShot Lil' Native Rocks Glass. Spyderco teamed up with BenShot using an LC200N blade from a Lil' Native knife to make the glass.

They're available right here: https://www.spyderco.com/catalog/details/RG01/1858

Dad's Ruger P85, Mark II naturally, with his Spyderco Manix, and a Surge to stand in for his Leatherman Wave. My father left this world far too early, just over 15 years ago now. This was his last loadout, with the exception of the Leatherman Surge, that's actually mine, his Wave was actually buried with him because my sister said we couldn't send him to heaven without it.

This was on my mind today because a very kind redditor tipped me off where I could buy some spare parts for the pistol. I hadn't fired this pistol very much recently because it's still all original, other than the Mark II recall being performed at the factory. I know these things are tanks but it just gave me anxiety to think I might break a part, mostly because this will never be my pistol. It will always be his and I must take care of it.

The Manix was the last knife I ever gave him, he'd barely had it 8 months before he passed away. He always preferred tip down carry and I've always left it that way for him.

You ever look at a picture and realize you're becoming your parents...

When my brother-in-law's department retired their P85s, they offered them to the officers. His was worn and had a "patina" from many years of patrolling and cleaning. I gave him the money to buy it and give to his son. It might not seem like much now I told him, but decades from now it would be a durable reminder of his service, a heritage of law enforcement and a family heirloom.

This was inspired by the fact that the only thing I had of my grandfather's, whom I never knew, buried in a foreign country, was his revolver. When held in my hand, it provided a tactile connection to him, to his spirit, that bridged time and space.

Well for what it's worth I'm very glad you did that. A man's (or a woman's for that matter) pistol is something truly sacred. I think my dad got his in 1987, and it went with him and us all kinds of places. It was there when hurricanes knocked out power for a few days. It was there at 3 AM in rural Arkansas when strangers wouldn't leave us alone. It was also the first semiautomatic I ever fired. Thankfully, this pistol has never fired a single shot at a person. I am however pretty sure dad must have shot at snakes with it at least once.

And bear in mind, my father was just an engineer. I can only imagine the life a service weapon must have had. I have two trade in police guns, and I sometimes wonder what they would say if they had the powers of human perception, recall and speech.

It is a nostalgia trip to think about the time when the Ruger P85 was the state of the art. It is the Glock 19X of 1985. It is now so old it has gone from trendy, to ugly and clunky and old, to retro cool.

I do wish Spyderco would give us another original Manix run though. I love the Manix 2, it's great. But the original was a very different knife.
