    I've been wanting to grab one of these for quite some time and when I saw this particular model I had to try it. I've owned and carried a lot of ZTs and this is very on par and razor sharp and made in the USA for well under $100.[​IMG]

    Be seeing you...

    That's quite the persistence!
    There is some fun in rotating through several knives, and it is sometimes useful to pick a knife tailored to a specific task, but you loose out on the attachment and companionship you build from carrying the same knife, always. Working your way through the obstacles with what you've got. I've noticed that this knife is always in your pictures, and it's inspiring to see someone one here still doing it that way.

    I agree completely!
    We are often so driven by new gear here that it is easy to lose sight of the actual EDC of things.

    I have been carrying my Manix LW now for over a year exclusively,pretty much anyway and we are a team now along with the SC64w and you know what they say?

    If its not broke,dont fix it!

    I rotate a lot of items in my edc just for fun. Guns, holsters, watches etc. I have several knives, actually more than several, Lol. I fell in love with that Persistence. I own more expensive knives, even more expensive Spydercos but that Persistence is just the right size and weight and it is a completely one handed operation with the liner lock. It tackles most any of my day to day needs as a retiree. I love all my edc items and try to use all of them some but I see that Persistence being Persistent for a long time to come.

    When I was a young boy the Buck 110 with its black leather belt sheath was the thing every boy wanted. Back then the price was substantial. Somewhere in my youth I got one as a birthday present and still have it. Found it in a drawer yesterday and cleaned it up. The belt sheath is long gone but the knife is still in good shape for all the boyhood adventures it went on. [​IMG]

    Edit: Hoping for better picture quality, both look fine on phone.

    Sorry, it doesn't work :-( Probably due to automatically resizing the picture when posting.

    Mini-buster knock-off. Actually a very good value overall. Steel marking is "D2" and blade edge retention seems to be pretty close. Just missing that ball bearing slick action, though (washers are fine & smooth, but not quite as good).

    Nice! That looks to be the older discontinued version, isn't it?

    Thank you! Besides the perfect fit I really like how a leather sheath develops a certain character and look over time respectively when customizing it. Especially when using natural (white) leather to begin with.
    The third sheath was much whiter than the case at the beginning, which had a more natural color aswell compared to the one pictured.
    The pancake is the newest one but already looks much better now. Well, at least I think so :)[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Your correct, xevious. It's the first-gen Pro Lite, ca. late 80's I believe. Still, a very decent carry.

    I like that design and not really keen on the updated version. I'm bummed that due to its sought after stature, the 1st gen is hitting upwards of $80 on resale market! Do you own any Ontario knives? I've been considering the RAT II in D2 steel (a welcome step up from the earlier AUS-8 version), which has a similar aesthetic. The textured black scales look good (not going for that carbon fiber option, which unfortunately is totally smooth--no texture).

    FWIW, I have a Rat 1 with D2 and G10 scales... Great knife. Great action, as is the case with my Rat 2 (AUS8A). Both Rats are in my opinion punching well above their weight especially based on their pricing!

    Start of a new week:
    • LF pocket, on Pangea Ti Pickpocket dangler: LM Squirt PS4. The blade is 420HC; 1.6". This one is just about ALWAYS with me.

    • On my car ignition key ring: a classic, the 'Christy knife'; small knife guys know this one. (See also the company website, https://www.christycompany.net/history-of-the-christy-knife-company). This is absolutely a simple keychain knife: body 3 3/8", blade 3/8" x 1 7/8" x 0.025": 'surgical steel'. Here is a pic from the website:
