Awesome.got my brand new buck rush today (its my third due to loss) and keeping true to my post above i opened the wrong end and it slammed into the concrete floor, and then...later i was absent mindedly picking my fingernails with it only to look down and see a good bit of blood...so yea...apparently i predicted the future though i thought it was all in jest lol
not to go off topic but whats the best way to put a edge back on a used knife..... im not the best sharpener by any means
If it's a Spyderco or Benchmade you could just send it in for resharpening. Five bucks.
I like to keep the scratches off my nicer things. In an emergency we do what must be done, but I don't think it's nice to tell someone that they should not take care to keep the possessions they have as mint as they wish. With lights and knives I have those I take special care of and those I use hard. Cheers to you if you try and keep your equipment like new.
To those who scratch the hell out of your stuff, cheers to you as well, just don't be so quick to judge others.
Its all just perspectivelovecpf
Just use it.
I just got a brand new Hinderer XM-18, a very hard knife to come by, and it was in my pocket the second it came out of the box.
I carry and use all my customs, and productions.
Please do yourself a favor, use it, and enjoy it.
Knives, firearms and flashlights are all tools
Would you be upset if you scratched your power-drill or your hammer?
I'm not trying to be harsh, but get over it, seriously.
If you're worried about scratching things in your collection, maybe you should take up collecting commemorative china plates or snow globes.
For the record, my everyday carry knives are generally Benchmades...my favorites are a couple of 530 Pardues with a 154CM blades...and yeah they are both dinged and scratched to hell. Its called "character", learn to love it.
