    My name is Johnny....Johnny Come Lately.

    I have many Spydercos....but pretty much stick to a few for EDC. Military, Endura etc. So I was looking to buy a Techno and looked at my unused collection to see what I could sell.

    I bought a Gayle Bradley a year or so and did not care for it......now it is like knife crack. And I am loving it. Beautiful knife.....

    So, not selling the GB, and just ordered the Techno.

    Life is short.

    The Gayle Bradley Folder has the smoothest action of any Spyderco that I have had the opportunity to handle.
    It screams quality in every possible way.
    For me, its one downside is that it's a little thick and heavy in the pocket.
    It has no other drawbacks or imperfections; it's an example of true knife perfection.
    I haven't been lucky enough to hold a Techno yet.

    I haven't held a GB, but I'll likely acquire one at some point because I want to try M4. I knew I needed a Techno the moment I held one at my preferred local knife shop, but the price on it is a bit steep for me until sometime in the new year...there may be hope yet for a Techno this year with Christmas around the corner. My smoothest operating is probably my PM2, slightly edging out the Chokwe and Caly 3.5.

    The Techno screams louder than the GB. Especially when it clicks as the stout little blade locks up solid between two slabs of beautifully stonewashed titanium.
