    Right now, I have my Pro Series Lahar in my pocket.

    I've been thinking about getting one of those...Gerber, right? How do you like it? Does it stay closed like it should...I mean, it's not likely to open in your pocket or anything is it?

    it's ok. i like the sog blink I was carrying a bit more, but it's a tiny bit bigger and a bit more tacticool. (but very fun to play with)

    i got this to play with the ceramic razor.
    the gerber is very clean visually, but not so well thought out. the razor will impact the sheath when you close it - glued a small cork liner inside to help with that.

    the detent isn't very powerful for keeping it closed, but if you're a careful kind of person, i don't see it being a problem. if things naturally get jostled on you, i can see it being a concern.

    and it's definitely not for people with large hands.

    I can't show it because I don't have the proper things to get pics from camera to the laptop I'm on.

    But I stupidly bought a Silver SAK Cadet ALOX the other night.

    Not stupid because it's a bad knife. FAR from it! It has perfect Victorinox Fit and Finish.

    Stupid because I'm not yet an employed Truck Driver.

    CLBME, can you start a thread and teach us how to make those fobs and do the wrapping like that?

    Hi Kaichu dento,

    I'm not sure I'd be the best to do so as I don't have a camera, etc. to show you but I can lead you to one of the best blogs around with videos:

    http://stormdrane.blogspot.com/

    He's very creative and extremely generous in posting videos and how-to's.

    The turks heads (wraps around the flashlights) as they are called take practice and trial and error. I learned to do them from a book called "Creative Ropecraft". If they are done really well the cord won't be twisted as mine are. I use them for work so I didn't take the time on these. I've done other variations on my TK10 in the other thread on lights and knives and it's shown here too: #136:

    http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/...=176685&page=5

    You'll see Stormdrane's great work on the same page.

    Even with the above having been said I'd be glad to help you if I can!

    CLBME nailed it. Stormdrane's blog is where many, if not most of the people doing ropework on the forums learned.
    Trees don't grow on money either.

    Stormdrane is a rope god.

    Right then, back to knives.
    This is my EDC for a week or so, it's on a pass around from the britishblades.com froum.
    A slipjoint made by young Russell White from sheffield here in the UK. Blade is 3mm Munin damasteel, 440c spring (both with vine pattern filework), carbon fibre over red fibre scales. The bolsters & pins are nickel silver. .
    OAL open: 16.5cm
    closed: 9cm
    edge: 6cm








    Your thoughts and observations are welcome.

    Thanks for the info.

    I may still get one...can't go too wrong for $10. If I don't like it, I'll put it in one of my tool boxes. Besides, it's common knowledge that you simply can't have too many knives, or flashlights!

    Thanks Kaichu dento, that's kind of you to say. Yes, Stormdrane is the master of paracord on the net. I look forward to each of his new posts. It would be great to see more here.

    Well, it is a very, very nice knife. It has a look of class to it, not the usual tactical look, which I am getting tired of - frankly.

    The color is great...unique.

    Do you have some information on the maker?

    Thanks,

    RL

    The maker is Shane Sibert. The Mini Pocket Rocket is NOT listed on his site. Nor is he taking orders.

    However, Benchmade is coming out with a production version of this knife; the 755.

    I've likely put a picture somewhere in this thread, but today I had my SOG Twitch XL in my pocket.

    I modded the thumbstuds with a dremel as they made it VERY difficult to get out of my pocket.

    And they can't be removed because they keep the blade for closing too far.

    Here is a link for a site that I just pre-ordered from.
    Benchmade MPR Shane Sibert Design, M390 Super Steel Blade, Plain Edge, PRE-ORDER

    And of course, the knife itself! Not quite as nice a look but I like it enough to buy one until TKC lets me have a shot at hers!

    Benchmade 960 Osborne in D2. Love this knife. D2 steel really takes an edge and holds it.
