    Hahaha thanks, the Sporkula came from an awesome guy so it was cheaper. :) the TAD did cost me a bit though but it is so worth it.

    Thanks, yup the bead is 6 trit tubes and nylon with brass made by boyo17.

    The bead itself is a Starlingear 2 tone operator.

    Is the case sodbuster jr. a good knife? I live in holland and knives are expensive here, I'm looking to buy a Case dark red bone CV full size trapper and am thinking about ordering a CV sodbuster jr. as a smaller companion knife.

    Yes I think it is a great knife or companion knife. It is light feels good in hand and has a good blade that works well for cutting. I have a few Case knives and this is my favorite due to the single blade it has.
    I dont think you can go wrong with it.

    thanks, I only have a part time job as a re-stocker and make €160-€180 a month, so €35 on a knife is a kind of a big deal for me. One more question about it though, does it allow a full 4 finger grip? (I have large size hands)

    I can get a full 4 finger grip on it. I have medium (but long) hands and have no issues. If I add a little to accommodate extra size fingers it gets close to the blade. If you are very worried about having a 4 finger grip I would say go to the full size Sodbuster to be sure.

    It's not going to be a hard use knife, I have a Buck 110 for that and the trapper will be big enough. And if I really don't like the sodbuster jr. I can gift it to a special ladyfriend of mine who has small hands and is not afraid of knives.

    She really digs my Stainless steel handeled delica with the full spyderedge.

    Greetings from the Netherlands and thanks for your help :)

    Glad I could be of assistance. And if it wont be hard use there should be no problems. If you have any other questions please ask.

    Take care from the USA :)

    Oh by the way I have a petit douk douk that is comparable in size but way thinner, so the sodbuster jr. will be just fine :)

    Thanks again!!
    You might want to check out the douk douk petit and grand made by Cognet in France. Cheap, carbon, thin profile and they have a rich history. Sadly I don't have a camera for pictures :(

    Found out the Scout clip works perfect for the water bottle pocket of the Synapse 19.

    Lately keys have been in the bag more than in my pockets.

    My Dad needed something from REI and as Im the only one with a membership (and 20% off) he bought me the stowaway pen that Knifestyle got me interested in. It fits in my Davis Bison cover behind the flap as to not stretch the pocket.

    It is quite a bit smaller than the already small bullet but isnt quite as thin as the Lamy Spirit but obviously shorter.

    The other day I bought a Lifefactory water bottle, I liked the idea but like Hydroflask more for the insulated properties but I had 20% off so I gave it a try. This bottle makes water taste pure, I was surprised how much of a difference it is to plastic bottles I have been using, the Hydroflask has a small taste left over and I pick up on it very faintly but it is there. I got the grey with straw cap in the 22 oz configuration and couldn't be happier with the turnout. It does have its downfalls such as a glass bottle is more prone to breaking and depending of hot or cold you will feel it on your hands.

    The bottle itself is made in France and the cap, sleeve and assembly is all done in the USA so I was happy with that. I would suggest it to anyone looking for a non insulated bottle to keep on a desk or even a bag. The store I got it from had Chinese and Mexico made bottles for only about $5 less but I was happy to pay a small bit more to support an American product.

    If you haven't seen them it may be worth a look. This is mainly first impressions but sometimes they tell the most.
