    @kdurt: what is the knife second from the left? Can't quite make out the name on the blade.

    L'chaim!

    Sounds like a lot of CRKT knives to me. Had one or the other, but it was same same. Like the Hootenanny. Looks nice. Hollow grind, check. Flies out of the handle, check. But: blade material, weight and clip made it meh.

    Would be interested in the Homefront, just for the heck of it. But AUS 8 (or 1.4116 SS)? Like, really?

    As far as I can tell, that is a Cold Steel Talwar with the upgraded blade steel.

    Something like ZT for Kershaw would be nice for CRKT, too.
    A premium line with better f+f, CQ and materials but with their unique designs, esp. locking mechanisms.
    A Fulcrum or a as meantioned, a high end Swindle, that would be cool (to me at least).

    Yeah I agree. Kai does a good job with their branding and position in the market.

    This has been used and abused, driven over and lost & found a couple of times. Still has a place in my black heart. [​IMG]

    Yes indeed it is the Cold Steel Talwar XL with the CTS-XHP steel. Sadly I hear the Talwar line has been discontinued but I am sure there will be plenty for sale over the next few years. For such a big blade ( my tape measure shows just under 6 inches) it carries fairly unobtrusively. I had a 4 inch model that left in a trade that I miss and need to replace. It did very well in edc type tasks and disappeared in my pocket. I love wave deployment way faster than assisted or auto knives I believe. Also CS knives with the upgraded steel in my experience do hold an edge noticeably longer than the old aus8a, but the aus8a would take a wicked keen edge when sharpening.

    Emerson Mini QCQ-15 and Sanrenmu 704. In other words, 205 € vs 10 €. For my taste, they team up well:[​IMG]
