    A little more flashy than what I usually go for but I'm pleased with it.

    Artisan Cutlery's Perfect Pyrite kickstarter campaign. Satin finished S90V blade, contoured titanium scales with fat carbon inlay.

    Picked up an EXO-M. Been wanting one for a while, but they usually sell out within hours when shops get any. THis is fun as hell, second only to a balisong IMO. Excellent machining on the Titanium and Fatcarbon frost handle, nice even grind on the Elmax Dagger blade. disengage the lock, hold it by the handle inserts, and the frame drops as the blade slides out, can flick it and open/close fast as an OTF. Very simple mechanism, but more versatile than my OTF autos, can be opened slowly/quietly by pushing the blade open with a thumb. I like knives that lock closed, especially running trails, or riding MTB and motorcycles. Initially I was a little worried it would be too small, being advertised at 2.9", but it's actually 3.25" measured like every other knife to the hilt, and about a perfect size to actually carry.

    Hell of a deal. Was it in store somewhere, or secondhand?
    Facebook marketplace, used no bag or box. He had it listed for $130 which i thought was a good deal. Offered $100 and that was declined. A couple days later i got a msg that he would take $100 if i was still interested. Fb had taken down his ad.

    Nice additions. I like the mini Adamas. Cruwear wasn’t bad to sharpen.

    Picked up a Doug Ritter in magnacut yesterday to see what it’s all about.

    I have a couple RSKs, got a first run carbon fiber Hogue RSK MK1 in Magnacut, it is a phenomenal knife. By far the best version of a "Griptilian" ever made. Pretty much the blade that sold me on Magnacut. I carried it for months, cut everything with it, factory edge was still a razor when I rotated to other carry knives.

    Thanks. This is what I was hoping to hear/experience with the RSK and MagnaCut. I have the griptillian and definitely prefer the g10 over the nylon on this new RSK. Though my pocket fabric may not.

    The blade shape, heat treat, and steel are perfection for hard EDC use. The Hogue version improves upon the Benchmade Grip in just about every way, Better texture, better hardware, even better fit and finish. The starburst texture and checkered "thumbprint" in the middle looks cool, but actually far grippier, and chews pockets less than BM's G10 or FRN scales. I have bought a few more of the full size or minis to trade or give as gifts, it's a knife where basically every part makes perfect sense when you use it.
