Looks hefty! I already find the B1 hefty! the b2 must make an expensive chopper! Hows the balance on this knife?
It's actually not as hefty as it looks.. I bought this together with an additional loveless sheath for my bravo 1 and the entire package only weight 1.81 lbs, I think less than 1kg...

It is also very balance and light weight which kinda makes it not really a good chopper.. I would prefer to use my cs trail master for chopping task.

My obsession with knives ignited when my mum brought me to watch Greystoke Tarzan (the one by Christopher Lambert) at Capitol cinema in the 1984

Bro, save yourself while you still can... I already kena poison deep deep until I am an addict now... buy all these knives only to be stored in the cabinet with no chance to use at all... I already completed my reservist liao so no more out field

My wife complain non stop and I may need to check myself in for rehabilitation soon... so dun be like me spend lots of money on white elephant

just bought a spyderco ladybug from amazon.

First "real" knife i ever own.

The earlier few were all those chinese knifes from dealextreme or san ren mu.
Did you ship direct to your address? Amazon said it couldn't ship to my address in Singapore.

On another note, looking to buy a Spyderco Tenacious.

Already spent everything i have on knives.. T.T but i've already got a knife to cover my 'needs' so i'm slowing down.. no more safe queens for me! I haven't even go NS yet. So MAYBE i'll get to use some of my knives next time.
Now use the money to go places to climb instead.

BTW people i'm still looking to sell my BM530 brand new! Ordered extra last time.

Havnt NS yet!? oh my gosh you're YOUNG Haha!

I am sure you'll have plenty of opportunity to hard use your knives in field... when you're operational. When I was NSF, we use to draw Ontario blade machete from CQ store for out field.

We should have an exclusive forum for Sg knives collector... a place where local knives enthusiast can engage in knives discussion or share lobang and common interest... and photos

If there isn't already one... does anybody have any suggestion on how we should start one? maybe delphi forum?

@foosdoll: urm, all forwarders do not allow shipping of blades/knives.. just ship them direct, but shipping price isn't cheap..

@Spurgears: Nice! You still keep the Greystoke Tarzan? Mine started with an opinel my dad handed me for fishing eons ago.. it's now a shelf queen but that knife has alot of sentimental value all the way back from school days lol.. and the missus complaints is something we have to get use to!

anyway a forum is troublesome to administer with all the spam bots floating about cyberspace.. my suggestion would be a facebook group page or something, kept closed and easier to manage..

Just to clarify...

H1 will NOT rust; period... All H1 folding blades produced by Spyderco will not rust even in strong acids what more saltwater. There isn't any carbon in the steel so rust just doesn't form. H1 is not a stainless steel it is rustproof. All parts of the salt series including the pivots, screws and washers are rust proof. The clips on these are titanium. They are amazing value for money. Oh... The etching will fade but the blade itself will not corrode.

Ah I stand corrected! Looks like the h1 spydies are pretty good around salt water looking at the test floating around the web! Now I wonder how does benchmade's h2o series compare!

I don't think the H20 series will be better than the salt series. Axis locks have 2 omega springs in them which i suspect will rust. Heck, i think the whole axis mechanism will rust. Lol

You're right... Thing about the BM water knives is that the blade is rustproof but the mechanisms are not. A chain is only as strong as it's weakest link.
