    I didn’t say I bought it. When I referred to buying other knives, I had other makers in mind but not Ganzo.

    The knife arrived ... Wednesday? ... time escapes me.

    No pics but you can see it here: https://www.buckknives.com/product/418-vertex-knife/0418FAM01/

    VERY lightweight. Reasonably sharp; but Spyderco SE grind in VG-10 or even H1 I have found to be sharper out of the box. No, I WILL NOT test forearm shaving with it. No way I'd try that with a SE grind; I've been called a bit weird but that would be nuts!

    Blade centering needs adjustment out of the box, but not horrendous for a $25 knife.

    I think I'm going to like carrying this one.

    L'chaim!

    Sliverax just arrived. Here it is next to my Leek. Feels well worth the $$$.
    Now I have a Spyderco Centofante on the way thanks to the eBay 20% off coupon. [​IMG]

    Zero Tolerance ZT801TI S35VN Rexford! First time spending this much cash for a knife. I am sure it will be amazing!

    Got my LUDT. It’s a really nice knife! I love the blade shape. It’s very functional and the spring is quite strong. I think it’ll be a great EDC Knife.

    I've got to find a new outlet for when I get bored...

    Just ordered a couple of Kizers from Blade HQ:

    > Kizer Sliver Sunburst in Orange T6. 3.5" stonewash blade; Ki4419A1

    > Kizer Vanguard Velox 2 Flipper; Green G-10; 3.4" Satin blade; V4478A2

    Kizers are starting to edge Kershaws out of second place for popularity in my stable.... :)

    L'chaim!

    The Proxy is Strider-ish if you took a Strider handle, snipped the corners to round it out a bit and finally remove the hole in the blade. Other than that, the drop point shape and finger choil feels and looks Stridery in hand.

    Have you found an Olamic yet? I'm still loving mine though I have a Southern Grind s90v Penguin in my pocket today https://www.bladehq.com/item--Southern-Grind-Penguin-Titanium--82310

    I got a GM4 (Giant Mouse #4) on the way! ... any one have any experience with any of the GM line-up?

    This is my first one. I figure why not, I love Vox's work and Anso's stuff has it's appeal... Little big knives are great for dual carry but can hang lone wolf when needed and if the materials gel with the FF I'll have a sturdy companion for all the in between tasks I encounter along the way...

    It's by no means a perfect match but if you removed the contouring on the proxy squared off the handle a bit and added a hole in the blade as well as a Swedge it looks kind of close... honestly I think it's more of an in hand feel kind of thing with the forward finger choil , you and I know that Strider is King lol

    If you *makes a ten point list of changes* — hahaha. Sorry that had to be done. But seriously, let’s agree to disagree.

    Which region is it?

    Could be a nice place for a weekend trip even though there's many places as nice as that around here ;)

    It is Yosemite. I have seen the classic and camper for several different National Parks, but this is the only Super Tinker I’ve seen.
