Ever since I got more into handguns last year, my knife-buying has pretty much stopped.

I used to drop $3-400 on a new Busse every few months - now I would totally rather drop that on a gun.

With that said, I have been rotating my 3 Spyderco Delicas for the past 4 years - I think I am going to make the switch to the Endura...

So, an Endura or three are in my immediate future.

See, I'm the opposite. After buying a few pistols and building another AR last year, I'm sick of buying them, and switched back to knives. Good timing, too, what with all the current craziness!

It is a great time to get back into knives...

Unless they ban those too

I picked up two Benchmade 3300BLK Infidels on Sat. Technically it was 2012, but I have been searching for a pair of them for a few years!!!

My Spyderco Southard just shipped and I'm waiting for the nutnfancy Lionspy to ship. I'd like to get my hands on a ZT 0550 with the black blade, as well as a 0551.

Have you ever heard of hrknives.com? I found them, and their prices are great. I haven't ordered yet, hopefully later today I will be able to.

No I haven't heard of them.

Actually, I get most of my knives new or like new off the exchange on Bladeforums, usually at a pretty steep discount.

Traded a friend of mine for a
Smith and Wesson Extreme Ops CK70 folding knife. I don't have a picture of it but this is what it looks like;

http://www.outdoorpros.com/Prod/Smit...e/16695/Cat/20

8 1/2" Over all length
3 3/4" blade
Belt clip on reverse side

Made in China but I just like the way it looks.

Got a new one and one back from being customized today. The new one is a ZT 0700, and the other is a Benchmade 12800 Gaucho with a custom carbon fiber handle. Love it!

Started with an ESEE Candiru with a Dark Star Gear sheath. Just found my holy grail set after 3 plus years of searching. A new set of Kelly McCann designed Blackhawk Crucibles ( fixed, folder and trainer). Have been carrying the more beat up folder in the pic for 4 years or so.

I know it's nothing special but as a broke college kid I bought a Spyderco Manix 2 g10. And a CRKT Fire Spark. I know it's nothing like a ZT but I enjoy them and work at a carpet store so my blades are used multiple times a day.

Sent off both the ZT 0200 and 0400 today, can't wait to see what they look like when they're done!
