    Sunday update:
    • LF pocket, on Pangea Ti Pickpocket dangler: LM Squirt PS4
    • Coin pocket: Spyderco Manbug Salt Rescue; yellow FRN handle; lock back; 1 7/8" H1 steel sheep's foot blade, SE grind
    • Right front pocket wire clip: Spyderco Spy-DK #C179POR; slip joint knife; 2.62" Bohler N690Co steel spear point blade. Produced in Spyderco facility in Maniago Italy.
    • Like the Spyderco Pingo, this knife was designed to comply with various European knife laws including Denmark. Seems in 2016 knife laws in Denmark and elsewhere in Europe were relaxed, eliminating the need for this sort of design... so it was also discontinued in 2018!
    • To be honest I don't remember where I bought this knife from, but the pics below are from BladeHQ.

    I wasn't sure about those after they came out, tactical slipjoint :nah_disagree:
    But they are discontinued now and I had to order one of the last available ones in exactly the same setup. It should arrive tomorrow.
    How do you like yours so far?

    @Hagbard81
    It´s large, legal and I like the tactical look. Perfect craftsmanship from Lionsteel Italy. Nice deep carry clip with glas breaker. And the slipjoint is very strong. No problems with it so far and I don´t expect any but you will always keep in mind that it´s a slipjoint. The blade is comparatively thick behind the edge so it´s not the best slicer.
    I love it. This one and the Spyderco PM2 are my favorite knives so far and the Mike 42 got the advantage that it´s legal to carry in Germany.
    But to be honest it´s not the best EDC knife. It´s large, heavy and thick. You will never forget it in your pocket. The Manly Peak is still my favorite EDC knife (longest time in the pocket). But I would never give back the Pohl Force Mike 42.

    Manix 2, first "real" knife purchase for me (not a cheap, off brand almost disposable tool). Definitely need to purchase a proper macro lens for my camera because I am forced to use the cell for these shots..... I know they are terrible Haha. Reprofiled, polished and stropped to a mirror finish.[​IMG][​IMG]

    Late to the game, I know....

    But I got this must have piece in the mail today.

    Swapped the clip with the one from my 535 and I love it, my new favorite for sure.[​IMG][​IMG]

    Still waiting for the AD15 to be in stock more widely. I'm hearing good things about it being really close to the custom Demko version. However - people are saying the G10 needs a bit of sanding. How do you find the texture? Too rough?

    It is pretty rough, it would be a good knife for the Vaseline factory. But the knife has enough girth to pull it off. The main downfall is that it is textured under the clip. If I sand mine down it would be just in that area to save my pants pockets because this thing is going to get a lot of pocket time.

    I might, just have to grab a ZT 920; that's really quite awesome! I like that satin blade profile. Is this an assisted-opener, or a flipper?

    It is a flipper. Discontinued from ZT recently. Might be able to find one around still. Usamadeblades.com had some nice anodized ones.

    Which steel is this one? How did that patina come to be?

    If you call Benchmade they will send you free deep carry clips. I have requested several over the years
