    When I turned 30 I got a S110V Native so I recommend the blue Manix LW. New steel in a shape/handle combo that has gained its merits to make this year memorable. Just in case you are looking for a user knife and high carbide steel.

    ^^^^^^^^^I would definitely agree.......such an awesome knife!

    However, if you are looking for a fixed blade then as Swigert suggests a Southfork is the choice. I have both

    BTW - I had to laugh at the thread title as I have been turning 30 for the past 14 yrs now

    30 eh? Enjoy it well it lasts! A poll taken of the elderly revealed that their greatest regrets were that they hadn't been more promiscuous in their youth. If you are a free agent......don't let yourself have that same regret later on in life.

    Ha I've enjoyed who I've enjoyed and am very happy and lucky to have found my Katie. I am actually engaged and have a 2 year old girl. I have seen more of this continent than most I know. My regrets are that I have worked too hard for people who didn't deserve that hard work and I didn't canoe my grand river enough and didn't take up fishing & hunting younger.

    Then again I do everything backwards to just about everyone so it's very much me.
    Own: C81GPBN2, C11FPGY

    I'm with you guys that are well beyond 30 and I'm trying to decide if I want a knife or something else for my upcoming birthday. I have too many hobbies vs. birthdays upcoming in the near future.

    I think an upcoming birthday might be a good excuse to buy a sprint on the secondary market.

    Oh man I hate it when these hypothetical questions aren't actually hypothetical.

    I'm saving for the upcoming Farid Mehr K2, and I just bought a South Fork.

    Whatever the hell you want. Buy what you will, its your birthday, and birthdays are the best time to pick up something you have wanted free of the guilt. Hell I just bought a brand new handgun (Fairly expensive too) for my B-day. No guilt here. B-days also allow you freedom from your significant other's objections. Who can argue with you wanting something on your birthday?

    If I were turning 30 I would take that money and spend it on some 21 year old hottie with daddy issues. Since I'm over 40, well.. I'd do the same if I thought it would work out. But the knife I would like to get is the Southard. If over the budget, then Domino, below that Chapperal maybe.

    This is a hard one seeing as I've got a few of knives before hitting 30. Probably a custom but having to pick spyderco it'd be an upcoming knife rubicon/k2/bowie, current would be the chap 2.

    Hunting and fishing+a new knife for celebrating a decade?
    I would go for a Southfork. I don´t have one yet but the blade/handle/steel/sheath-combination is outstanding.
