What do you mean by classic looking knives? Folders or fixed blade? There is one shop selling knives at the army market (forgot the name) and the other shop i know is Sheares.

any other cool looking S30Vs out there recently?
I like the Spyderco Milie, a bit large for EDC though, more of a tactical piece.



Another one would be the Benchmade Doug Ritter Grip.

Don't knock the hole till you've tried it... I have both BMs and Spydercos. Both brands offer excellent value but an opening hole beats a stud anytime. With an Axis lock however why bother using the stud when you can just flick it open.

I have to admit that Spyderco designs do look weird and may not be everyone cup of tea, but their ergonomics, fit & finish are superb.
I was thinking of getting the Ritter Grip though, but from previous post it seems that it may not pass customs?

Anyway found another S30v folder (afordable at least hehehe) The Boker Titan 3 Ti.
Seems like there is a slight recurve, but luv the blade shape.



No experience with Boker though, but i think i will this a try. I really need to stop surfing these knife sites

I have 2 boker trance... So far so good. I don't get to carry them much as I have too many to rotate through. How much do these cost? S30V and Ti handle is always a nice pairing but that back lock is a deal breaker for me, if it was mid handle I might swing for one.

From knifecenter, its 84.95. So far all of my back locks are mid handle. Will it be harder to close one handed if the lock is so far back on the handle? Accidental release of the lock?

Cool chef's knives! I like the GLOBAL, cromova 18 ss, does it holds an edge well? Does it need to be resharpen often?
It holds the edge pretty well, but if u are a constant chopper/cutter, even the best knife will be worn out.

For global knives, use ceramic stones, instead of normal stone, diamond and steel. Jap steel are softer, hence if u use other than ceramic stones or sharpeners, u will sort of damage it.

For European knives, it's better to use diamond and steel.
