    As I said I never owned a realy knife but I have always admired those Spyderco knives! I first thought about trying a manbug or dragonfly but then decided to go for a really nice one right away! It will probably take a week or so until it arrives (fingers crossed that it passes customs without problems!) but I will for sure take some pictures as soon as I have it! :)

    Since I got my first SF dog tag in a GAW I really started to like the look of these tags on my keychain!

    But there is limited choice with SF tags and some of the nice ones are really hard to get. I also really admire Hatchetjack's work but I lack the the tools (and probably the skills as well) to try for myself at the moment (the limitations of living in an apartment). So I looked around and there are quite a few places where you can get custom stamped dog tags, different metals, different styles. Etsy is a nice place for handcrafted stuff and several people there offer dog tags. This shop for example has different finishes available, personally I like the distressed look best (I got the small tags, just for reference): http://www.etsy.com/shop/oDDDogcreations

    You can't get anything really fancy stamped and the space for letters is limited but one of the tags has my phone number on it which might come in handy if I ever lose my keys! :frantic: I just bought a second one with my name since dog tags always look better in pairs! :D
    They actually look much better in real than on the pictures!

    The techno finally arrived!!

    I have never owned a "real" knife before so I can't really compare. But nevertheless this is a a really awesome one! The size might be a bit small for people with big hands but it's perfect to carry in the front pocket. I like the unusual shape of the blade, the titanium scales are super smooth and of course it is razor sharp!

    Thanks!! For a long time I was debating whether I should get rather one of the cheaper spydercos but I'm really glad I went with the techno!

    Thanks, mr the ryan! ;) A compliment from someone with such great pictures all the time counts even more in my eyes!


    Sure, go ahead! These bike chain parts are so much fun to play around with!! With a couple of master links, half-links and some paracord you can put together some really crazy rigs! The sliding master link "bead" is still my favorite! :D
