    Welcome to EDCF! I have a very close friend who lives in Charleston who got married at the Magnolia Plantation last weekend. It's a cool place down there.

    I don't really collect knives since I'm bad at rotating through them. I do coins/silver/bills, shot glasses, lighters (Bics, Zippos, and "Zippos"), fountain pens, and Steel Flame dog tags. :D

    Welcome aboard. Glad you made it.

    Another para2 you might want to look out for is edcf's own para2 with moon glow handles.

    Is Melvin your brother, or Uncle? Or is/ was that your Dad's and your brother took Melvin's and you started Bessinger's? If I'm right, you just have the one location on Sav Hwy, right? I usually try to get by there when I get to Chas. I will ask if you're in next time I'm down. I'm wanting a glass of iced tea right now just thinking about it. And a pepper on top of my hash and rice.

    I know good BBQ, not knives. I don't have the first Spyderco. I would like a Delica myself. I'd be the wrong one to ask. Maybe post the question in the knives section? I don't know if there's a Spyderco forum or not. I'd like to have the EDCF Spyderco, too. But, that money goes to diapers and BBQ.

    Well if your ever in Charleston S.C. you must come by and find out for yourself. lol. Lets just say we've been in business since 1936 and are well know in the Charleston area, and I'm not trying to brag. It is what it is.
