    That is why I haven't chased any of the older pieces, as much as I like them I just cant see tying the money up in them for me, I completely get it from a collector point of view.

    But they all look the same model?
    I can understand collecting different variations of course but 16 of those look identical ??

    You don't need a reason to collect them and they don't have to be different. They're all just awesome.

    I keep forgetting to ask this, how light is the dog tag when it's mostly carbon fiber and Ti? The spyderco version is .9 oz, mine's shaved down to about .8 or .85 by replacing the aluminum spacers with carved g10, but it still has a full metal blade and handle.

    So I wonder how many of you actually use the Atwood pieces. I see these things look so clean and beautiful , but no kind of where on em . As if they are just jewellery for your keys . Lol btw I'm just have hating on yall's a bit because I don't own a Atwood piece YET!

    Just weighed it on the digital scale. It is .505 oz. You can hardly feel it when it's in your hand.

    I also asked a while back. There are some sweet users with scratches and blemishes but this is mostly for the sake of sexy eye candy! Look back a several pages an you'll even see a post action shot!

    At least two of the five I posted are either used or carried on a daily basis. There is a bit of rotation. Peter makes solid stuff so they can obviously handle a little abuse but I try to care for them as if they are art which I what I consider them to be..

    As jds1 just said nice collection Kfox

    syne' I carry at least a couple everyday and they do see some light tasks, my most used piece is my Crypto mostly because of the wrenches. Keep in mind with all keychain tools they are meant for relatively light duty so with the quality of material they are going to get really beat up unless they have a fancy finish.
