As you know, @Elise and I are in the UK now and with that comes a great deal of legislation, especially as it pertains to my choice of EDC knives.
So, any recommendations? I will of course pick up a Spyderco UKPK, Byrd Tern but I am not sure what else is on the market (that is good)-
This morning the mailman dropped off 2 County Comm button compasses from a massdrop.com buy.
The larger one on the left is brass companion compass and the one on the right is the S.E.R.E compass.
Besides the obvious size difference the quality of the companion compass is obviously superior with a heavy CNC machine brass body & a high visibility face.
The S.E.R.E compass is super light though & if I had to carry one around my neck I think I might lean towards that..
Plus side, it also has glow in the dark markers!
All in all, I think they are both pretty kickass in their own way. I am by no means an expert navigator but I look forward to testing these out thoroughly.
Anyone tried out any other button compasses?
In the industry it seems people are either really into folding prybars ("beater knives") or folding lightsabers (anemic slicers), I know the mainstream tends to cater to the in between with knives like the Paramilitary but in terms of hype online people tend to obsess over the extremes!
Personally I have always loved very lean knives like Opinels & my reground Delica's and tend to keep the rough stuff for my fixed blades but I am curious- whats your take on this? Do you see a purpose in folding prybars?
Just wanted to get a tally going of everyone's favourite pocket knives.
Now I know that tastes change over time, and sometimes your favourite knife for the week is not the knife you'd consider to be your all time favourite, so I'd like you to list:
Your favourite pocket knife this week
Favourite for the month
Favourite pocket knife of the year, and
Your all time favourite pocket knife (if you had to choose just one!)
As always, pictures of your shinies heavily encouraged.
Can't wait to see which knives get listed!
