I have no idea what the Begg is made of. I saw one of his blade that was made of 154 CM priced at $1500. I stopped finding the prices for his other knives after that .

I do like gentlemen's folders, but the Mcusta is not really my cup. Held one before, very sharp but handle too fat for me.

My new baby:


He was so underpriced and homeless, I had to rescue him .

My bad , Endura 4 huh . Ok some contribution from me, since I'm still wide awake at this hour, tried to take some decent photos of the Stretch, excuse my amateur attempt.



Some things of note about this stretch of my. The fit & finish is superb as expected of Spydercos, however initially i thought that the blade is not centerd when closed. Upon closer examination, it seems that it is a problem of uneven grinding of the tip of the blade, ie they are slightly asymmetrical.

Regardless, luv the blade shape, the thickness of the blade, the vg10 and its ergonomics in the hand

Wow 1.5 k, with that you could get a William Henry and still have some left over!
Nice DM Vizor, S30v steel!

Alright another Spyderco, the Caly3, one of my fav. Small enough for daily edc, could be use as a gentleman folder. The satin finish on the blade with black G10 scales are simply gorgeous. A downside on this model for me, is that it is pined at the handles, would prefer torx, for cleaning. Though the pivot is torx thus the blade tightness could be adjusted.

Mcusta MC 16D, with clip. Thinking of getting this too this year. The bumber is that the clip has only one position, i think is tip down. But just luv the nickel dam. Anyway got to satisfy my Spyderco craving first
One thing you should know about this knife... It is a lot smaller than you might think.

I've never tried the Stretch before but there's 2 of them on the way since I got them at a very good price.

Now that u mentioned it, i took a look at the photos again, seems the blade length is approx 3" assuming that the handle is around 4". On the short side i might say, but its calling out to me!

Dang that's a really good price for the CF stretch! :O Congrats for landing such a great deal! Might i ask where you bought it hehehe.

It was a private sale... I didn't realise it was a good price till I looked over at Knifeworks and noticed they were selling it for $160 a pop. Glad I bought 2 cos I'm planning on using one. He sold the Dragonfly at market rate though so I guess you can't win them all.

Very nice score.

I just got my P'kal today. Damn the thing is sharp, sharpest knife I currently have, cuts like a laser. Also got a letter from customs today. Looks like its brother the gunting is held hostage, gonna have to liberate it tomorrow.
