hi, i'm new. always had something in my pocket.. zippo back in jhs, and then classic and zippo in hs. that lead to classic, spartan and zippo.. and so on and so on. found out i can do most what i needed to do with one blade than carrying SAK. so moved on to spyderco when they were just starting to get noticed. then last 2-3 yrs, i have been carrying kershaw skyline. not a big spender. if i find something that works for me, usually i stick with it. trying to get a nice light and a pen now.
