Wow small world. What year did you graduate? Do you still live in the bay area?
I taught there this past semester. They've been trying to get me to switch over there, but I wonder if the virus situation will stop that. Btw, a friend recently sent me this article mentioning Gavin Newsom and SCU. He talked about it in a press conference today too.Right?
2010. Not anymore unfortunately, moved to Pittsburgh about 3 years ago.
Personally prefer the first knife and don't like Damascus blades.First world problem here. So, I want a Benchmade knife, and I also want a Good Art large rondel and baby barrel set to go on the ring part of my chain on my new stingray and harness leather fob for my vintage Omega DeVille chronograph.
I can either get the less expensive version of the knife (I will remove the clip in any case)
and ALSO get the Good Art set, or I can get the high end, Damascus steel version of the knife with a really beautiful handle:The Benchmade 15085-2 Mini Crooked River fine edge knife offers a traditional profile with modern tech and a style that pushes preconceived notions of what an EDC (everyday carry) knife should be. Available at REI, 100% Satisfaction Guaranteed.www.rei.com
and defer the Good Art.With a Vinland™-pattern Damasteel® blade dressed in an inlaid, marbled carbon fiber handle, the Benchmade 15085-201 Mini Crooked River fine-edge knife is a timeless combination of form and function. Available at REI, 100% Satisfaction Guaranteed.www.rei.com
The cost will end up being pretty much the same both ways. I am really tending towards the Damascus steel version.
FTW, totally not for EDC or whatever. I just like beautiful tools. For camping, I already have perfectly functional Kershaw knives, etc... This is only incidentally functional.
Your opinions? (I will remove the clip, most likely, in either case) I "need" a knife like a fish needs a bicycle.
Yeah, I hear you. Though I'm tending towards the second, which really catches light in an interesting way - the resin inlays are slightly translucent and the holes in handle allow light through. Also like the gold plated hardware and the Damascus blade. Really, no love at least for that last part?Personally prefer the first knife and don't like Damascus blades.
I've never liked Damascus blades. They just seem aesthetically overdone.Yeah, I hear you.

Hmmm... I guess that we are liking the opposite things. I like the first too, I realized, but it's so... tasteful. Sorta like the Common Projects Achilles of knives. I want something like the Versace of knives.I've never liked Damascus blades. They just seem aesthetically overdone.
The first knife you linked is so much better looking.
That's pretty much it, everyone just calls it damascus steel anyway though, presumably because it sells better.was under the impression that the art of making damascus steel had been lost and no one had yet figured out how to make proper damascus steel and all modern attempts are just pattern-welded.
could be mistaken though
Except knife-dicking.All the knives posted are like the big dick with erectile dysfunction of knives, sure they're impressive but they won't ever be of any use. Stop cosplaying and get like basic knives you'll (maybe) use. I'm pretty certain 95% of the makers posted have NEVER had a client use their knives for anything remotely useful....
