I got another boring slip joint to share
But at least it is a Northwoods and it has some modern pals... Demko Ti in 3V with a wicked regrind and a MT UT.

Picked this up on Amazon in Nov. I’m happy with it, easier to belt carry and effective for what I need to cut occasionally in the wind on docks.

Posh land and I bought the D2 not the bone handle it’s ugly to me.

I scored one of the new GEC 21 Lockbacks and these two. Hopefully I will like the Amphibian more than my old M4 Contego and I don't have to own a Benchmade.

I looked hard at the new Amphibian at the recent CCKS show. I almost bought one. I had an original manual Amphibian in green and loved it. The new one is an awesome knife, just too big for EDC for me.

Congrats!

I like it. Now I want to grab a G10 MSI or Stitch with Ramlok. I carry it about half the time now, today I have a 0566, hahah. The Amphibian is a solid knife.

I got one of those Magnacut Bucks... pretty impressive because it is so tight it feels hydraulic and has absolutely zero play in any direction... like none of my other Bucks.



Case is better than KABAR? YES.

Just bought this a couple days ago. Matches up well with my 340PD, when wearing light weight carry clothing.

My last knife purchase was in 2017 at the Benchmade Factory in Oregon City, Oregon. I saw the Osborne in person and fell in love with how lightweight it was. It has been my EDC knife for the past 7 years.

Last week, I was able to order a Montana Knife Company Magnacut Mini-Speedgoat w/ black paracord (man are these knives hard to acquire...!).

I've heard nothing but glowing reviews for MKC and couldn't believe how lightweight it was (1 oz w/o the shealth - which was included with order). I'm not too familar with the magnacut stainless steel, but from what I've read, it's a newer material with high HRC and fairly good resistance to corrosion.

I'm a sucker for drop point blades. I'd love to see Buck make the 119 and 102 with a drop point blade.

I bet I've purchased a dozen 110 over the past 20 years, half of those being the drop point model. 4 of them have now been given to new Marines, the 5th is on its way. My neighbor just told me his youngest son has signed up.

I asked his dad for a range trip. Maybe take him out for some AR/AK action.

That crown stag Buck is Real nice!

A friend of mine just came across a decent amount of pocket knives and a few fixed blades.

I picked up a couple nice David Yellowhorse Bucks from him out of a lot .

His isn’t part of Calguns but he is a solid dude.A decent variety of Parker & Case XX pocket knives in several flavors .lots of jig bone and stag . I don’t think any are new production all vintage since the Original owner died awhile back . Might be some rare gems in the lot but I’m not really a pocket knife guy more Custons from Randall , Bagwell, kious ,Lile etc...

Anybody local to the Ventura County area especially Ojai where he is PM me if you have interest.I can get you in contact.
