    Great pic! You don't REALLY use that knife for opening those nuts do you? The thought sent shudders down my spine. LOL

    L'chaim!

    @Moshe ben David, I did in fact open two with the North Fork, just for the fun of it, and because it was in my pocket at the time. But for the entire bowl I would have gone with a different tool indeed!

    I picked up a 535 Bugout last Friday. I got the last one in stock from a local knife store leaving just the display model. After non-stop playing with it all weekend and an adjustment with the torx driver, it opens as good as my 940 and falls shut just as well. I really think that this will be the 940's equal (maybe even arguably better?) for EDC. Oh, and no blade play at all and pretty decent centering, albeit a slight favour to the clip side.

    Nice 912 sir, (Even though it is an 'S' ;) )

    Never got much respect, but I like them.

    Benchmade released their 2018 new knives yesterday! I particularly like the little crooked River and the Fact.

    I really like the Benchmade 490. The only thing I didn’t like was how smooth the aluminum handle felt so I added some grip tape.
