Hey amsam, mind doing a solid and fixing that huge sigline?! It's obnoxiously big.


Santa came through with a Gerber Impromptu tac pen. Obligatory pen through the trigger guard pic...





Picked up the Victorinox Swiss Tool Spirit X at a pretty good price for the boy.





It is really nice (always heard they're sweet). Close to perfect.

Picked up a used Benchmade Bedlam 860SBK off ebay for $135 because the guy complained that the blade wasn't perfectly centered in the frame. For a carry knife, I could care less. I resharpened the blade on my stones so I can shave with it if I needed to.

Nice score. I'm sure you could center it easily if you wanted to... cleaning, tuning, polishing the bushings and adjusting pivot. As long as there's no blade play, I wouldn't bother either.

Nice Griptillian. The ZT 0452 is one of my favorite EDC folders... probably #1, but the 0801 might beat it. I alternate those two a lot.

ZT 0452, 0801, 0450, etc...

How does that 0303 compare to a basic 0350? It just looks to have the RIL or framelock instead of liner lock with G10 on both sides?

The 303 is a lot bigger than the 350. I bought a 301, 303, and a 350 all at the same time because I didn't know which one I wanted at the time. I really liked the 350 better than the 301 and 303.

Ill have pics up as soon as the knives come in.

0392's look pretty cool. Let us know how you like it and compare to the 0452 since you have that too Nice blades. I got a UPS notification email that I have something waiting, I'll pickup and post later.

Weight wasn't a huge difference but these BGTG's are definitely Team Gemini's rather than Light Brigades... the blade width is slightly more, the spines are not "melted" or radiused and the fuller is shorter. Overall I think the BG looks better to me. Funny the BG won't fit in the leather sheath I had but it fits in the TGLB Kydex. It is wider enough to have way too much tension to get it in and out of the leather. Each has a home though, so no worries.

Nice. I really like the 0452CF. Im sorta stuck on benchmades, but the 0452CF is by far my favorite knife ive ever owned. I bought the two 0392 to resale to fund other knife purchases. I have a feeling they will be pretty expensive in the upcoming months. I have been wanting to buy a fixed blade for some time now. I really just want one for hunting, so that I don't have to borrow my dads when I kill a deer. Ill probably end up with one of the benchmade hunt series of fixed blades.

No blade play at all and it locks up tight. I've already resharpened the blade and I'm sure Benchmade would have kittens if they saw what I did to it. I don't really like factory edges and sharpen blade how I like it. Anyhow, this Bedlam is now my EDC.

My sons gave me an A-Sol "Ladies Man" for Christmas. I put a handle on it (came with cord wrap) in a day. It's now my favorite fixed blade and yes it shaves.

I think the CG model is closer to a realistic fighting knife since it is more affordable. IMHO, the $150-$200 range 7.5 Regulators beat it as far as what you get for the money in a functional indestructible blade. I love my Convex Military Regulator (.33" thick including the coating) and Hollow ground regulator (.30" thick stock).

They sure don't look like a Team Gemini though This new one is only .20 thick and has a different choil from early reports. It'll be a nice variation. I got it in Black with black canvas micarta handles (which are grey and black really). I already had a leather and gator sheath that will fit it.

I prefer the SYKCO's I guess because they are more utilitarian with the grippy handles, but I do like the Team Gemini - it stands out with most of my other Bussekin stuff though.
Which model Sykco is the green handled one second from the left?

That's a Regulator. Specifically a hollow ground parkerized version. They make a few variants. The latest one just offered but sold out was a full flat grind black handled. They all have that handle except the de-regulator which has the top guard ground off. There are a few short blade variants as well.

I've been so pleased with my qtrmstr qse8 texas tea that I picked up the match in limo tint black



The black one is a christmas/becoming a father gift for my best friend when I go to visit him next week.

As for my texas tea version, it has been my daily carry for a couple months and I have never had a knife that held an edge so well. I took it camping and used it setting up camp opening boxes and cutting zip ties, ropes, firewood bundles etc, whittled with it, stabbed beer cans to shotgun them, cut fishing lines and bait, stabbed more cans, then used it to clean the trout and it cut through them better than any of the filet knives we had along. Used it to cut steaks, open mail, break down cardboard boxes, everything and I havent had to sharpen it once since I put the first 25 degree edge on it.

If you find the 0452 is unpredictable (i.e. when you close it it wants to guillotine your thumb, etc...) Just put a drip of blue loctite on the threads of the pivot and tighten the pivot till it stays where you put it... then let it dry. With the ball bearing rings it will still be plenty smooth when tight. It most likely won't loosen again. I do this with Benchmades and copper bushings too.

I didn't carry my 0452 as much until I replaced the tiny clip with a 0808 clip which is much longer. It gives you more to grip onto and protects the lockbar from your grip putting too much pressure on the detent hindering opening. ZT will send a clip for free if you ask nice via the web form.
