    Check out "Motostuka's" website. They're gloves are top-notch! "Grifter" also makes great riding gloves.[​IMG]

    I had one of these for YEARS. It has disappeared 'somewhere' in the black hole known as my garage. My first real edc, and for most of those years, one of only two that I had -- the other being a Wenger SAK (still have it, but no longer carry it; main blade has worked a bit loose so it stays at my desk for packages).

    L'chaim!

    Bought this Vendetta by le Berger when I visited Corsica recently. For me it is a typical "picnic knife" that makes me long for cheese and wine.

    I originally started becoming heavily interested in knives due to modern knives, one hand opening with locks and pocket clips. However, I had been using low cost traditional lock back knives for many years before that. Back then they were tools, not sharpened often, and I was not concerned about blade play or quality of the steel.

    2 years or so after I became a knife enthusiast I took another look at traditional knives and started collecting those that I liked. I greatly enjoy looking for traditional at flea markets as sometimes you can get a great knife for very low costs. Now I routinely carry 1 slip joint and 1 modern folder as a pair so I can enjoy both type of blade. Also traditionals are (usually) smaller knives so adding one to my pocket was not any substantial burden. They are now an everyday part of my EDC and I have great respect for these knives.

    And because we like pics:

    I have these and another half dozen or so not pictured. I don't EDC any of them as I'm just not comfortable carrying a slipjoint when I have a locking folder readily available. I do love the materials, craftsmanship and history behind them, however.

    I generally carry a traditonal folder that coordinates with my other gear in a leather slip case. They don't see a lot of use but for minor tasks, I get some joy from pulling one out to use it.
