    Thanks for the info, I didn't know much about their origin. I agree about the build quality on the parachutist, it is nothing to write home about. Still works after all these years, I guess that is something.

    I carry each of the folders occasionally, some more than others. The last couple of months, I've carried the T-Rex mostly. I'd never carried a large knife and it was a fun change. I'm getting tired of carrying it now, so I'm switching over to one of the Baby Bushidos.

    I don't carry the "novelty" pieces, e.g., coin knives, credit card knives, etc. They're impractical for every day use (IMO) and too rare and cool. I just admire them. They're like art.

    I carry mine after I get a new knife and the "newness" wears off!

    Went to the knife shop today and saw a Spyderco Resilience.

    It's much more utilitarian blade than the Espada, and less likely to cause a panic if I pull it out.

    After 30 years of using and lugging stuff around in and out of the field, The best way I can tell anyone to ensure GTG status on their gear is use it, use it ,use it. Those look GTG, Good luck down there. A tip if I may. Stay away from the local blend of tecquila rather sticking to stuff you know. The home brew is usually like MO- Gas.

    Roger that! Been putting the camo one through its paces! Finally got it dull. Going to steel or strop it tonight.

    Thanks for the tip! I appreciate it!!! If you have any more feel free to put'em here http://edcforums.com/threads/south-america.105214/ !! I'm not much a tequila drinker, more of a guzzler!:D Actually it's hard for me to drink a lot when it's just my wife and I, especially in unfamiliar places!;)
