I'm tempted to buy something just because.
Not sure what though. The price for the Mantra is nice and I have a $20 KC giftcard that would make it even more attractive. The one I have is in great shape. I'm usually not one to buy back-ups but I like that M4 blade so much I feel compelled to do it. Undecided...
One-eyed Jack would be great buy if I used my giftcard. I'm still not sure about this one though. Not really big on the playing card theme but that filework is great. I don't really need another gent's knife but...
Then there's the kitchen knives. I was already thinking about getting my girl one of these but she already has the K04s & K05s and is really happy with them. The K11P & K12P are really nice though.
The Sprig is sweet but not sure why I'd want (or need) a fixed blade. It'll probably end up in the kitchen drawer next to the Bow River I'll buy when released.
Ugh! Gonna have to give this some more thought. If something sells out in the meantime...oh well I guess.
You're pretty much echoing my state of indecision!
Seems like the last couple of years it was obvious what I was going to pick up as soon as the disco list was published.
Mantra: Love me some M4 but not on board with the flippers.
One eyed jack: Have always had my eye on this one. Dont mind the inlays and real a big fan of the craftmanship on the spine. Only thing hilding me back is that it would probably only get carried a couple times a year (may be in Vegas for work quite a bit over the next year so that # might increase.)
Sage 2: I decided I only needed one cf so I rid of my 5 in favor of the 1. I've always enjoyed the Ti on the 2, but never got around to it. Seems to be getting some good praise from credible members.
Lil' Lum: Mixed reviews on this one here on the forum, but may grab one for a future gift.
Manix BL: Hopefully this means an exclusive is more likely a few years doen the road, but I barely carry my standard CBBL as-is, so will wait for the resurrection.
Ouroboros: This one has the best ergos of any of them for me but dont need more VG10/Black G10
Junction: I hold it every time I am in the SFO. Haven't committed due to the fact that I think it will be another that only gets used a couple times a year. I will probably pick one up anyways.
I did pull the trigger on a K12P yesterday as our K11P see's a ton of use in the kitchen. I know the LC200N series will be coming out, but who knows how long till they hit the street. Gonna discuss with the better-half (corporate chef) if we should get the SE to complete this mini-set.
I highly recommend the Sprig if you are a fisherman or small game/waterfowl sportsman, but those are the only times mine sees the light of day.
I almost want to wait to see if any are at the seconds sale on an even deeper discount, but then I think I should get these good deals now so I can save my knife limit for the 25 Maxamet PM2's I am gonna buy
