SK! make some of the best quality fixed blades for the money, but I'm not planning to buy direct from them again anytime soon. Since I only ordered Factory 2nds the longest I've waited has been 6 months, but couldn't imagine the Pre-Order guys that have been waiting two years for their Factory 1sts.

Hope you get yours soon as well. The new spec 4.1 is my favorite so far and my last and final 4.7 is being delivered today. From now on I'm only buying SK!s off the secondary market. The best place to get them are on their FB fan page or BF when guys post them up for at or near what they paid. I noticed some of them have gone for $300-$450 on eBay lately.

I did the same because they're saying 90 days on their Factory 2nd 7/7s, but I don't see them meeting those deadlines because they still have a backlog of 4.1's they are catching up on. I believe the last of the 4.7s are going out this week, so the 4.1s and 7/7s should be starting to ship. However, the 4.1s Factory 2nds are still not caught up from October, where they told people it would take 45 days.

I have two 1st gen 7/7s and they're great blades. I'll probably pick one up off the secondary market in the next year or so, when I find a decent deal on one. The FB fan page is pretty cool because I've picked up several of my SK!s on there for reasonable prices. I actually got a used Factory 1st 4.7 in CFV for $115 and a 4.7 for $215 in the last few months. One of the guys sold me a new spec Factory 2nd 4.1 in D3V for $220. It's great not having to wait several months for a knife. There are a few scalpers on the page though that will ask guys to sell them knives cheap and you see them flip and sell them for $300-$400, whether it be on the site or eBay. It's fine if guys make profits off of blades they waited for, but asking for favors to sell your knives cheap, than flipping them for a profit isn't accepted by many.

Coolest folder ever. I am super happy! It even carries OK in the pocket.
Got my hand a couple times learning pocket deploy haha! Subtlety is the key.

After many 15 years of carrying a Wenger 2" Swiss army pocket knife I decided to update to something more serious. So, I decided to buy a Kershaw Dividend. It looks really good, US made, and the price is very attractive.

OK, I'll hop back into this thread.

So, interests and hobbies come and go. Life changes. Nothing is static for long. I hadn't been buying many knives in the last year or two. I had a few choice pieces in my collection, didn't have any real orders in with makers and was a little frustrated with some off the pricing I was seeing as has been discussed at length in various threads. I kind of thought that maybe my passion for knives was waning and that I could be content with what I had collected.

Apparently, I was mistaken. I seem or have turned a corner of sorts. I was at a M&G or something, don't really recall where, but someone showed me a Boker Marlowe collab called a Bullpup. It's a production version of Charles Marlowe's Bulldog. I have a custom Bulldog that's too pretty to carry, so decided that I had to have one. Now, most who know me know that I'm mostly into customs with a few notable exceptions. The knife is way too cool for as little as it costs.

Then, out of the blue, I get an email from Scott Cook noting that I had an order on his book from the last time he opened it six and a half years ago. He noted that six and a half years is a long time and that if I was no longer interested, no big deal, but if I was, it was my time! So, we worked out the details and he went to work on a Lochsa for me. I went for the optional top swedge, S90V steel and the CF inlays. It is SWEET!

While I was waiting for the Lochsa to be finished, I came across a cool Charles Marlowe No Name frame lock. I worked a deal and before I knew it, I had added another Marlowe folder to my collection. This didn't come with no pain though, as I did part with a cool *** Marlowe bali that I got from Charles a while back. I had come to realize that while it was a really cool bali, I'm just not a bali guy. I'm much happier with the folder.

So, the Lochsa finally shows and oh my! It is stunning. I figured that I was probably done for a while. Three new knives in a fairly short period is a lot for a guy who had been pretty dormant.

Then I went to the Pasadena show where not only wasn't there much that caught my eye, but was the tiniest knife show I've ever attended. It was kind of sad how the show I've been faithfully attending for years had shrunk. One of my favorite dealers, Recon 1 wasn't even there. On the way home, my wife and I stopped in at their retail store in Woodland Hills just so see familiar faces and say hi. While there, I spied a John W. Smith liner lock with LSCF scales and brushed Ti bolsters. It was tip up and minty. JWS makes an AWESOME knife! Just what I'd been passively looking for, for years! Sako made me a deal I couldn't refuse, so it came home with me!

Then, just a couple of weeks ago, I saw a Strider SNG DGG with Safety Orange G10. I have a special Strider SNG CC that is one of my EDC rotation knives. I've always been curious about the DGG configuration and have been curious about owning a bright orange knife, so I figured WTF and made an offer that was graciously accepted. Come to Papa!

You'd think that would be enough for just the first quarter of the year or so, but that was not to be the case. I got together last week with along lost Brother and as we were parting, he reached into his pocket and handed me a Daboia that he'd scored from CKF ( https://fromrussiawithknives.com/dab...itium-inserts/ ). It was not a knife I was familiar with, but is a Ti frame lock flipper with a CF scale, S35VN blade running on bearings. It's pretty cool, although I'm not clear as to exactly who built it for CKF.

I like that shape. I looked it up. Interesting that it comes in FRN and Aluminum variants like the 1776/LINKs. I like the grip of the FRN but the slimness of the AL... it is slippery though. I might pickup one of these. If the FRN doesn't have the flag etch, that might be the deal maker for the AL, hahah.

Just picked up a few of the new 2017 Zero Tolerance models. This 0801 based design is one of favorites. The cuts through the handle remind me of the badass custom STI 2011's with slide cuts that I used to own.

This sexy young thing is the 0801Ti. They put out a limited run of this handle design in 2016 which is the bronze one called the 0801BRZ. That's the one I the bottom three pics for you slow fellas.

I just got what I hope is a good deal. 1960-61 Puma White Hunter. It's been used for sure, but not neglected.

Hey Rom! Forgot to add the Volli Shot Show model and a 551-1. I scratched the blade on the 555HG so now I think I need another one. Or three.

Yup.
I wish it had the WAVE feature though.
Nothing a zip tie could not fix but the aesthetics would be dampened by that!

Cold Steel does a great wave feature. Works better on some than others with the stiff springs though. XL Talwars WHACK open like a Stockton slap.

Garage sale find. Steel is good (lloks like wootz behind the file-marks. Patina is deep and old.
Probably Moroccan, possibly Kurdish. No idea how old.

I've had this Gen 2 Survive Knives! 4.1 in D3V for almost 2 months now and the 4.7 in 20CV for several months. I have about 18 of their fixed blades and they're some of the best that I own. Downside is the wait for them.

Very cool! I love the outdoor action photos, much better than the standard "table top" pics you see 90% of the time. Love seeing knives used. Wish I had more time to get out there but I recently moved a lot closer to the Sierra Nevada mountain range so I'll be hitting the backcountry soon enough.

I've always liked Survive's blade designs and remember trying to purchase one a few years ago but their vague way of ordering kinda deterred me away to be honest. I probably need to revisit them. Very nice Gränsfors Bruk too by the way!

Sometimes they are not as pretty as a nice table, hahah.



Had that Spyderco in Tahoe this weekend, but no glamor shots.

Thanks jonny, I love the Sierra's and I live about an hour or so away on the other side of the mountains. I try to get out there as much as I can for hiking, backpacking, and camping. The bottom pics were in the Nevada desert outside of Frontsight, where we trailer camped for our course last month.

Survive! makes some awesome blades, but they're still having issues with producing their knives fast enough and reaching their deadlines. I was told 45 days for the Factory 2nd 4.1 in D3V and it took 6 months. Some other guys ordered the same day as I did and it took them 8 months. I would go the secondary market route on BF or their FB fan page. There are some who preordered Factory 1sts on various models and have been waiting for 2 years. If you order direct than make sure to buy the ones in current production and when they state 90 days be happy to get it within 6 months. That being said, they are OCD when it comes to quality and even their Factory 2nds are near perfect. Many of the ones that I own you can't tell a difference between 1sts and 2nds, unless you grab a magnifying glass and there might be a slight swirl on the finish. I have 18 of their blades along with several other quality brands. Survive is definitely on the top of the list.

Wow, nice! Never seen a double blade with interchangeable blades. Looks like it could be quite useful for many things. Makes me curious how sturdy the mini saw would be. Comparable to a medium size multi tool saw?

It's listed as a bonesaw so not sure how well it'd do for heavier task but my Leatherman mut typically does the harsher work.

Ya if you order a surviveknife it will teach you patience. Still waiting on my 4.1 and its been well over a year.

But sounds like Supertac916 says its worth the wait and im not in a hurry.

Okay, another Cold Steel....another Recon 1....this one standard size (4"). Also got another Micro Recon 1, this time in tanto blade. Seems a little sharper than my Micro in spear point, possibly because it's easier to grind the flat edge than the bellied edge. Sliced open some food packaging with the 4" and was sooooo smooth! Razor sharp out of the box, just like my Talwar. Love it!

Pretty much bought this one for EDC, since the Talwar is discontinued and I'd hate to damage or lose it now.
