    I prefer the Pacific Salt and Salt 1, although I do like the Delica 4 in VG-10.

    BTW, it's highly unlikely that Spyderco will ever make any FFG blades in H1; it's been stated many times that it's...

    I liked the first Matrix movie, but IMO they should have ended it there. The two sequels were awful.

    I loved Back To The Future 1 & 3, but not the second installment.

    My first was a very old Camillus scout-type pocketknife from my dad. The blades and springs were very rusted; the main blade was sharpened so far down that the point stuck out of the handle in the...

    Between the Two, I would go with the Matriarch.

    I always carry a full SE knife of one model or another. For quite a while now, it's been my Tasman Salt. I also love my SS Harpy, but carry the Tasman due to its weight. I don't clip it, but carry...

    I also say Victorinox and Chris Reeve. But in all truthfulness, between those two, I'm leaning toward Victorinox, since I carry at least one (often two) of their products every day.

    I might also add that if you can't stand your own company alone, what makes you think anybody else will enjoy your company?
