    I also count my American Lawman as my first CS folder, and only (if you follow my logic on why it was my first). Technically I got the micro recon 1 first, but it's hardly worth mentioning.
    It's a good one. The simplicity of a thin, linerless backlock(triad), yet so solid and confidence inspiring, is easy to like.
    I don't use it nearly as much as I should... that's the flip side of having too many knives

    I've carried mine for about 2 straight weeks. I really like it.

    Had it, sold it. Way too hard to close. Even after trying to break it in, the lock was nearly impossible to disengage. The whole thing was too “stiff” for me.

    I’ve read that a lot about cold steel triad locks in the past, but it seems like they have revised the design slightly.
    Mine was butter smooth from day one, and that seems consistent with reviews from recent years.

    The Spyderco PM 2 Tanto showed up yesterday. I am very impressed with this knife. The work and design that went into this blade is impressive. Overall, I think it will be less useful than
    my regular PM2s but I’m glad I got it and will put into the daily rotation. No worries about damaging the point on this baby.

    Here it is next to another tanto I own, a Chris Reeve Sebenza 21. Not sure which I like better at this point. The Spyderco blade is more interesting visually. Both great knives, I like the tanto blade concept

    Wait... you can get a Rambler engraved? I need to engrave one with my phone number! I loose small SAKs every six months, or so.

    I saw that, and was wondering where the engraving would be. The handle scales? Those blades seem awfully small..

    I managed to bargain to acquire a GEC Cripple Creek boys knife. I paid more than I wanted to, but I have been trying to get one of these for a while. I almost had one before but the seller changed his mind.[​IMG]

    When I read this I immediately thought of the wrong type of LST

    I'd seen this knife a while back. The TS123. Had contemplated it, because of the wonderful scales featuring inlaid copper. Then they changed the blade and got rid of the groove. Didn't like the look. Finally, some years later I managed to spot someone having the older one for sale. Had to grab it. It's a slip joint and I don't mind that because it stays firmly in place (plus I don't intend on putting it through tough paces). Handsome devil in M390 steel, without breaking the bank. ;)

    ^ I just got the TS123.

    Wow. I'm blown away. This is a seriously well made piece. Never felt a slip joint with such force. No way is this thing ever deploying unintentionally. There's two very firm detents as well -- half way out and all the way extended. Fit, finish, and materials are all excellent. Good weight, ergonomic shape, useful unobtrusive clip, and looks abound. There are a few hot spots, but not a biggie. The blade would look better bead blasted, but it's still a looker. Totally legal carry too for most anywhere, blade being just at 3" with no locking mechanism. I think I've satisfied my "new blade" hankering for a good long while. ;):hungry:

    Those Two Sun knives look awesome. Unfortunately, like so many companies, they don't make any provision for left-handed people. Granted, part of that is because they are based in China, where the incidence of left-handedness is the lowest in the developed world (link).
