Constantly on my person...

I'm delighted that the Tenacious is faithfully separating matter for you. I trust that the Sharpmaker is keeping the edge tip top?

I love the HDS, but you'll need to say more about the switch...

I'm pleased to introduce my new friends from Hinderer Knives. This is the Jurassic with the slicer grind and the XM18 skinny skinner. As a regular dude who can't afford a full on custom knife, these are high end knives that represent the next evolution of my sickness. While I love CRK, I never fully embraced the thumb stud. Also, the 20CV steel is an upgrade in terms of edge retention and corrosion resistance when compared to the S35VN.

Some of those holsters are just terrible. You should send them to me to save some embarrassment. [emoji16]

The endless variety of handle material makes Bark River stand out. It's a beautiful knife. What do you like about it? How have you put it to use?

Brk has some great options. I do a lot of carving and woodcraft, ive used this as a rough shaper when in the outdoors. I have smaller carving knives for more detailed stuff. I also like a general camp knife that’s not to large. A smaller blade with a good size handle just feels right to me. If theres a task that needs something bigger than this Ill grab a hatchet or axe. I’ve used this to make a pot hanger, feather sticks, cutting up food, etc

Meatcrafter Boning Knife. Love it. Carving up some whitetail quarters as soon as they thaw.

I hear whitetail has been known to cause cancer in the state of California. You should send all your reserves to me and the meatcrafter just in case any residue on is on it.

Thankfully I left my home state of California for South Carolina in 1981.:thumbsup:

Your De Wit photos got my started on collecting knives a few weeks ago! Would love to know anything else about them as far as pricing too. I'm keeping my eye out everywhere online to try and locate his knives for sale used with no luck. I did find his site at least and will be emailing him.

My custom is almost ready. Can’t wait

Back when I got my tax refund I put most of it in savings like a responsible adult, but I set some of it aside for a wild knife purchase. After no small amount of reading and watching youtube reviews I settled on the Medford Praetorian Slim. Is has all the signature style of a Medford, but is actually reasonably proportioned for a pocket knife. I just got it today so I haven't done much cutting with it yet, but so far I'm very impressed by it's feel and by how well that hollow grind slices. Overall I'm loving it so far!

And here's a size comparison with some of my other "large" folders. T-B: Kershaw Bareknuckle, TRM Atom, Praetorian, Benchmade 940, North Arm Skaha, Protech Malibu.

Stunning! I think it's a gem and perhaps the best Medford has to offer. S90v, right?

I certainly think it is. It's pretty similar to the slim midi but I like it's style much more. It still keeps the praetorian profile which is just a super unique look.

Also the compound grind on the tanto blades is sweeeeeet.

This one is S35vn. I think the S90V ones are limited runs but I never looked into it because I'd rather have S35vn anyway.

Me too. Some of those steels, like s90v, that sell out for edge retention have other undesirable characteristics.
