Secured a Kramer Custom Baba Yaga a few minutes ago. They sold out in 20 minutes. I donít usually impulsively buy knives but this one was perfect in every way.

Great feel/width too and smooth, William’s Cutlery in San Jose put it together and smoothed it out, I’m going to order the AA carbon fiber clip for it.

Bought a Spyderco Paysan that I traded for a Kershaw Tilt and also purchased a Spyderco Nirvana. These are currently the most expensive knives in my collection.

Yeah, I prefer the Nirvana to the Paysan.

The Paysan is/was supposed to Nirvana 2.0 -- "fixing" the "lock stick" problem w/the Nirvana by using a hard steel tip on the lockbar which also functions as an over travel stop It also has a nicer looking pivot screw and a pretty useless IMO lanyard hole. The clip design on both knives s*ck, so that's a wash.

Opinions differ but I just like the Nirvana blade shape and handle design/ergos better. However, that may not stop me from buying another. I just couldn't pass up the opportunity to get a Tilt in a straight swap for a Paysan.

That's pretty much the Randall I've been waiting for, for years at this point. Looks like a 6" blade. I'd prefer a 7", but that is a totally workable blade. I just have nearly no use for big fixed blades, so the motivation to spend big bucks is low, but that's an awesome knife!

Nice score!

Thanks, it is a 7" blade length, there are a couple other Randall Made knives I want to have, a #2 Stiletto and a #3 Hunter, which, including the #1, are the three models Bo Randall made famous during WWII.

Ebay.

I was the only bidder at $450; the minimum bid. It's more than I've paid for any other knife.

Placed a sniper bid at the minimum bid. Anyone else who bid $1 more would have got it but no one did. Just the right place at the right time. It's the only knife that I've paid more than $400 for (including the Paysan that I traded for a Tilt) and I don't plan to buy any other knife beyond $400 again.

If you keep looking on EB, you often come across "sleeper" auctions that other people miss or just don't feel like bidding on and can get a knife (or whatever) for much less than the prevailing mkt price for the item.

I gotten other "bargains" in this way but, frankly, I don't think the Nirvana is worth more than $400-450. I've seen Nirvana's go for around $400 (and even a little less) on BF and EB but I got tired of waiting and was willing to take the extra $50 hit if I could get it for the min bid. So, I feel I got it for a fair price but I do not think it's worth more than that.

However, as much as I like it, I'll trade you the Nirvana even up for your Randall #1-7 (which retails for about the same price) but I won't hold my breath while waiting to hear back from on that. LOL!

I picked up this Cobratech OTF last year at a gunshow. $70 and it's held up so far with lots of opening and closing to see if it's going to fall apart or not. The blade has a safety so if you're opening it and it hits something it releases. Good to have if you open it against your leg... just a small hole. After a year of playing with it (I open and close it repeatedly while waiting on whatever) the blade wobble is still the same.


And no, this knife does not reside in or visit CA.

I had one similar to this I got from TJ one year when I was a kid - was probably $10. I think the slider button was on the frame flat, and it was woodland camo. It worked, spring never broke for years AFAIK. Have no idea what happened to it. Maybe I finally wore it out, but even the cheap ones last quite a while. Had one side folder with a flush square button. I think it was a Boker knock-off. That one was fun for a side folder. The spring was almost powerful enough to spin it out of your hand when it opened up.

Microtechs are great autos. Just donít get caught with one on your person in public. That goes for any auto over 2Ē in blade length in California.
God bless Arizona
