Knife and Edged Tools Acquisions

And you are not buying them all up because….?

I have quite a number of slightly weird, recherche collections already. So if I now started buying up scores of small, ornate, antique penknives I suspect my friends and family might stage an intervention.

And although your personal seal of approval should rightfully be beyond reproach, I fear it might not meet the level of validation they would require as proof that I hadn't gone completely stark raving mad.

Though maybe I should, you're right. Just one or two. If I see something nice next time...

Just ask yourself, "WWLD?"

What would Legion do?

I have three knives incoming. This is the first of two similar Kizers. It is a very snappy non locking flipper the Kizer Mini Bay.

You really can open it an close it quickly and safely with just your finger tip. It snaps both ways, and, if it does open or close only partially, the flipper is easily manipulated with out any action. While it does not lock it is held firmly enough that I would feel comfortable using it for common tasks.

I had thought this would be more friendly than any of my edc knives being non locking with it’s 1.9” blade, but, it is so fun I think it could spook someone. Never mind, there is a Swiss Army Knife on the way too, as well as this knife’s liner lock big brother. I forgot I also have a Spyderco on the way too.

Yes, I am picky about clips. I don’t like for the end of the knife to stick out. I would rather have it in my pocket.
I see, there might be a deep carry aftermarket solution @rudygu ?

How about this one?
