    Thanks Dave

    I JUST got back from WS and I agree with all that. I really like opening with the lever, and it is very beautiful, but I dont think it's at all practical.

    The Ikon pocket knife was kind of ugly up close. I didn't like the wood, and it was too thick.

    Not sure to be honest. "Echizen Japan" is a consortium of manufacturers, so I'm not sure who these are by.

    I had two Benchmade AFCKs when I was younger, and they were fantastic. Very upset that they aren't made anymore.

    I'd love to start carrying again but I don't want to get thrown out of college.

    I carry my knife with me to all my classes. No one ever sees it, so it's not much of a problem.

    My EDC is a SOG Vulcan.

    We have a bunch of new videos on youtube, including upcoming product reviews from SHOT Show 2011, the new 4Sevens S12 (crazy little light), and several others. http://www.youtube.com/user/goingprepared?feature=mhum

    For a light, I carry a Quark 123 - S2 and sometimes supplement or replace it with a Lummi Raw SS. I sold my Masters of Defense Trident (big scary fully automatic knife that was too much to carry every day) and just ordered a Spyderco Leaf Storm yesterday, along with a split-pea lighter. My pen is a Lamy 2000 Rollerball. Lights: [​IMG] Knife: http://fototime.com/ftweb/bin/ft.dll...18A}&size=orig Lighters: [​IMG] Pen: [​IMG]

    My EDC is a SOG Flash II non-serrated.

    And I hear what you're saying about college carry, I do it most of the time, but I also realize that if it somehow falls out or gets seen by some pansy I am going to be in hot water.

    My walk 2 miles to school and back everyday so I pretty much necessitates it though.
