Not sure why I haven't found this thread sooner? Maybe I did and I blocked it out so I wouldn't buy any more knives! lol
I have a few, some recent and a couple I have had for a number of years. My EDC (and most recent purchase) is a Ruike P801SB stainless folder that is a great little knife! Fits well in your pocket, its not too heavy and it holds an edge. I love the bearring action and the flipper or thumb stud is a nice option.
I started my Ruike addiction with a Ruike P138-B with that sexy Tanto blade... man I love that shape. A bit bulky for an EDC, but if you find yourself in need of something to punch holes in something... its a gooder. Really sharp and again holds an edge well. Has a secondary lock too, so no accidental folds...ever.
I then picked up another Ruike (hence the earlier addiction comment) which is a P18-SB folder. A nice drop point, dual lock LARGE pocket knife that was my EDC for a while. Its a bit bulky to carry around all the time... but its another great knife. Love the satin black finish too. I was worried it would come off, but it is amazingly durable.
I picked up a really sweet 'survival' type knife few years ago from a friend of mine who is a collector, a knife designer and a knife maker. Much of his work is collaborations with others, and some of his stuff is simply stunning (http://www.loriendesign.ca/
). He sold me his Fallkniven A1, which is an amazing camp / survival / zombie apocalypse blade. LOVE that thing, it holds an edge amazingly well and is a beast...yet I can slice tomatoes or bagels while camping. heh
So many sweet knives...so little time. Some of the older and new stuff in this thread is amazing. Especially some of the stuff you are making Peter! Wow!
