Just don't edit your posts...I don't re-read them and don't want to miss what you have to say.

On the Survival Knife topic...

My Grayman Suenami 7 arrived last night. I've already put it on the X due to the number of blades I've bought vs my gear budget. Its a really unique design. Someone is going to get a good deal on it.

ETA: I really liked the sheath design. The liner is SUPER UBER thick.

I looked up that blade on his sight Gary and I wasn't overly impressed with it. Not saying it's not a nice knife, but....

I take back what I said about the ricasso in the 511, it's fine. They definitely could've brought the edge closer to the handle, though.

I don't care for it. My first foray into non-Busse(kin) since 2008 didn't turn out well. Its exceptionally crude when compared to a Busse product. However, its price point reflects this. I'd take $100 less than the maker sells them for just to move it down the line.

Some times you have to stray to find out why you came here in the first place.

The single bevel deal is a gimmick. I think its just cheaper/easier for him to make.

I think Adam's knife is a SHe?
