Wow, beautiful knife but you got some rich taste! Smokey Mountain Knife Works, $25 or cheaper. Buddy gave me a great EDC old Coleman tactical, black tanto blade, double thumb studs. If you think the world of knives is crazy you should check out tactical flashlights, LED's on candlepower Forums.com. The crazies there live for their flashlights and exotic batteries, there is also a knife forum there. I've carried strong folders for over thirty years, cut plenty of rope and fended off a few tough guys and their dogs! Do you sharpen, what kind of device do you use? I have an old Lansky system, works real well.
I used to wear Spiders back in the nineties.I was too much of a spaz losing too many good expensive knives.Now,like my sunglasses,I buy whatever fits that is on sale at my local big chain sporting goods store.
3-1/2" blade,yet thin enough profile to hang from the pocket yet let me get my keys out without losing the knife.
I have that Streamlight and it's good but that was over a year ago and the advancements made are amazing. I have to watch my spending and find it easy to get carried away with all the things we talked about including tools. The reasonable thing to do is buy a couple good quality items wheter they're knives, flashlights, etc. but when I see new technology, features and styling it's very tempting. Sounds like you go for quality and that's smart, styles change but qualtiy holds up over time.
When I first joined the military I was into knives big time. I've amassed a collection of military knive from ghurikas to gerber elite. Since then, the only knife I carry is a boxcutter pocketknife with a lennox gold blade. The most useful knife you'll ever carry is the one you don't realize is in your pocket. As far as wet work is concerned; the ones who talk about it the most are the ones who never did it.
Lore has it that the term wet work first came out of the KGB to describe what their assassins did. Then our CIA picked up the term. Before long it made its way into mainstream lingo. Look at the old Clint Eastwood film, "The Eiger Sanction" and the term wet work is used throughout. Young Christopher in the Sopranos was always asking Tony for a chance to do wet work for him. And Christopher was exemplary at doing wet work that was not family approved!
The Eiger Sanction! Haven't seen that one in a long time. One of Eastwoods lesser knowns. The meeting he has with the head guy at the beginning is a little weird but I liked the film. Might have to rent that one soon.
