Waiting for arrival of Ferrum Forge Gent in rosewood scales - should arrive Friday



Titanium liner lock, CPM S35VN steel, 2.4 oz . Planning to replace my current EDCs (Boker Urban Trapper or CRKT Ripple) and figure the drop point will be more versatile. For <$100 it looks like a pretty amazing deal. Not sure I'm gonna love the clip, but it looks very stealthy with the deep carry (will look like a ball point pen in the pocket)

As for fakes, read that some people buy ZTs from Amazon and then return the original box w/a fake in it; keeping the legit knife for themselves.

Scum!!!

Couldn't find any 0450 real vs fake Youtube comparisons. Is there a specific reason why you're concerned?

I am pretty sure it's legit, but the whole knife locked up. It looks like the frame lock is holding the blade in the closed position, I'm not sure if a detent broke off or something, but Ill be sending it back to Amazon. Its a decent enough blade but I just don't like the slime ZT's

Well that doesn't sound legit I locked up a 0452CF but I used it in salt water and didn't clean it up soon enough. Just had to really oil it.

I'm sure he meant slim ZT's... the 0450 is not the easiest to hold onto, but it is OK after you practice... and to me it is for shorts/sweats/slacks... an occasional knife. I am still loving the 0456BW - what a knife. Surprised it usually beats out my 0804CF... but those two are my favorites. 0456BW is not what I'd call slim or typical Sinkevich shape but a great Sinkevich.

Looks real to me... and used, I don't really like serrations. But if it is a good deal and you like 0350's - hopefully it is like $75 shipped.

Looks real to me too but still curious why you think it's a fake. What's bothering you about it?

I recently bought 2 plain edged Gen 1 Endura Clip-its (C10PBK) off of eBay; they're the old FRN Enduras w/the molded plastic clips on them.

Bought them because I already owned a pair of vintage Enduras w/combo and fully serrated blades that I bought in the 90's and wanted to complete the set w/a plain edged version.

The 1st one I bought is the one at the top of the photo. It was used w/a dulled tip. Got a good price for it because of its poor condition. It wasn't a perfect match to the other Enduras because it did not have the steel type stamped on the blade, which meant that it actually preceded the ones that I already had which were each stamped AUS-8.

Sent the 1st one to Spyderco to reshape and sharpen the blade. They did a good job of it, as you can see in the photo. The tip looks brand new but, what you won't really notice, is that they had to shorten the blade about 1/16" of an inch to do it. They also were unable (or didn't bother) to try to remove some discoloration (not sure if it's corrosion or not) from the blade that you can see in the photo. So, the knife is just a user (rather than a collector piece) for me.

Since I wasn't entirely satisfied w/the 1st one, I kept looking and found the 2nd one at the bottom of the photo which actually is a perfect match with the other 2 knives because it's also stamped AUS-8. So, now I have a complete vintage Gen 1 Endura knife set, as well as one that I can use and abuse.

Just received the newly released Spyderco Smock (C240CFP) that I bought from Spyderco.

An interesting new offering, which due to its smaller size ,would be good as an EDC. The blade is 3 5/8" long but the edge is only 2 7/8" long due to the choil cut in at the end which is necessary for the blade to avoid the novel size button lock bar when the blade is closed. It has a unique forward flipper design which prevents the flipper tab from interfering w/blade closure as can happen w/traditional flipper devices.




And also just received a fairly rare vintage Bob Lum G10 tanto w/a black coated combo blade (C46GPSBK) that I bought on eBay. Could have bought a plain edged version at the same time but didn't need/want them both. Never liked the other variations of the Lum tanto that I've seen and was happy to find this one to add to my collection.

I picked up a Cold Steel Finn Wolf several weeks ago. It is razor sharp and surprisingly not heavy.

I have my eye of a Gerber Pocket Square or a CRKT CEO. Something that is elegant and classy for work hours.

Have you seen the new BM Limited Freek (#560BK)? 500 total production, my son picked one up last week at our local BM dealer, he showed it to me last night, it's CPM M4 steel (I expected S30V...the M4 was kind of a surprise when I saw it...).

Stock photo from the Webs, I couldn’t get my son’s away from him long enough to snap a pic...My son's is a non-serrated.

Picked up a used Finn Wolf for free in a deal for another knife.

I prefer my Code 4 but the Finn Wolf is still a nice knife. It's certainly more than satisfactory as an EDC and would be excellent to take camping if I did any of that anymore. LOL!

Just the main a tad. Some dumbass must of used it as a screw driver. Not a bad job rounding it off manually.

Picked up a vintage "sharpfinger" from the 80's at a gun show last weekend for $10. Been wanting one of the originals for a while to throw in my kill bag.

Needed a bit of a re-profile and a new edge, but it shaves hair now.

Picked up three emerson/kershaws today CQC-7K (tanto), 4K, and 6K. I already own the 10K and 11K.

Going to eventually do a "Best in show" youtube video on them.

Abraham and Moses, a subsidiary of Geissele, this is their 4.6" AM-1 in D2 steel, CGN member cgseanp1 is selling them in the shopper for 20% off the manufacture's price.

Just received my AM-1 and I'm stoked! Nice balance, good heft, the grind is well executed, very comfortable grip and the sheath is top quality stacked construction.

That AM-1 is good looking. I just love a good drop point. I still don’t get the whole tanto thing - call me “old school”...

It funny, every time I think I'm going to purchase a new blade I stop and ask myself "what will this new knife do that a $15 Mora can't" ~ Haven't bought any knives in over a year...... lol

The question I ask is: Why use one of my $50-400 knives when I can use a $1-10 box cutter or utility knife instead? The result is that I've never used any of my the roughly 275+ such knives in my collection to cut a d*mn thing.

I'm with you on this one. I was fixed on getting an ESEE Laser Strike as a gift for a couple of twins going in the army, but I think I'm going to go with an AM-1 for both of them now. I just got my engraver today that I'm going to use to get the knives personalized, but I'm pretty stoked to come up with a new knife. One of the gracious forum members here donated 40 to the cause, and another donated 100 for the pair. I got almost the whole thing done here, but don't want to let names out because I'm not sure they want me to. PROPS here though for the awesome guys who donated almost $140 to the cause. I'm putting together a cool little book safe, framed photos of us fishing together as that was really our past time this year after their father passed away about 18-24 months ago. After he died of cancer I kind of took on the mantle as the guy they look up to for the "manly things" that they need done. I've gotten the amazing experience of working with two 18 year olds on their jeep, fishing reels, knives, hunting ducks and more. I've got about another 150-250 bucks worth of stuff to buy for them still if anyone wants to donate to the cause. They really are a worthwhile couple of guys. They love the Lord, hunting/shooting, and fishing. I'll get pics of them up with their new knives when it's all done!!

Because carrying them and using them is at least half the fun for many people. You have a nice ZT in a box... why carry a flimsy harbor freight box cutter? Not arguing, do what you want. It is a production knife, not a $2000 custom. To some people that's like saying you have a freezer full of prime ribeyes but you love looking into the full freezer you filled, so you are gonna eat soy burgers to live. Not that the analogy works real well, because a nice quality knife isn't consumed like that and can last a lifetime. It is still in your collection/freezer, whatever. Some people value it more when it becomes theirs with use. Most collectors do a little of both.
