Not bad, and a great Stocking-stuffer, barter or give-away...

Also, which Kershaw Steel are you making rust? There are a couple of main ones they use. It’s a steals and deals thread, but my heart says spend the extra $ and get a knife with S30V at a minimum. It’s widely popular and available at a few price ranges once you cross the $50 threshold.
I might be a steel snob...

Saltwater or sweat?

It was an older Zing, pre-speedsafe, when it was just a flipper. Not sure of the steel. I believe it was just the oils from my skin making the steel rust.

This guy sells some nice Scandinavian knives. On the cheap end of things check out the Mora knives. Not tacticool but solid long lasting knives with great blades. I have a few and my daily carry, a Swedish EKA has been in my pocket everyday for 10 years.

Oh, man, those all were "In-Stock" when I got the e-mail around Noon... :oops:

Did you attempt a Backorder and see if the price held...?

@enbloc you’re going to have to start subsidizing my purchases...
Or, we can start a trading club...?

<$50 range
<$75 range
<$100 range
>$100 range

How's it work?

Buy a knife;
Post its price;
Use it for 90 days;

Offer it for trade;

And others can offer you their like-priced 90-day used knives to swap.
Knives keep moving around. When you find one you absolutely love... Buy it!

In theory. you never pay more than the price range on the one knife, but get to try many, many brands and styles...

That site is broken or something. Now it's out of stock. So frustrating, but now I have a new page to keep an eye on. Thank you.

edit - or is it a flash sale type of arrangement that I caught the end of?
