A Chapparal FRN arrived today. It’s the first pocketknife I ever bought. I did not know how I’d be using it, so I wanted one unobtrusive but competent. I barely know it’s in my pocket, so the first test passed!
My boy is getting a less expensive knife as a gift for Xmas but that one’s very different: Ruike P801. Obviously I’ll be playing with that one as well to get a feel for a larger, heavier (but more mainstream size) knife compared to mine. Regardless, I know I want to also get a PM2 someday.
Another gift will be for my daughter, a SAK Spartan, in Massdrop’s “City Street” colorway. As a kid I was given a small SAK of some kind but it’s been gone a long time.
