I don't know what he chanrges for shipping, but if anyone wants something from Warriors and Wonders in Vancouver, I will pick it up and ship for actual cost.


Their shipping is actually very good. Good company to deal with.

Spyderco are the first to come out with the pant clip and the hole for easy one handed opening. Im not into a lot of their newer stuff.

-Endura, Police, Delica, Military are the manstays.

X2 on Warriors and Wonders. I'll deal with Jay anytime.
Got a Zero Tolerance 0200 as my EDC and duty knife. Very heavy duty, in fact a little to heavy for most I'd say, but I like it just fine.
You may not be aware of it, but I'm kinda a big deal.

I think I mentioned it before, but I still love my Emerson P-SARK.

That little wave feature that pops the knife open is scary fast. :thumbsup:

I also just picked up a Buck Redpoint for cheap, nice little knife. I like that it locks closed and open and has a deep pocket carry clip.


I'm on the wait list at WW for an Orange Mille, sure hope I get the opportunity to blow $169 on a knife! ;) I carried one for a bit and frequently carry other large folders (Swamp Rat, other Spydercos) and they don't pose a problem.

I just picked up this today. Delica 4 full serrated VG-10 steel.

Image

And I got this as well. K-Bar TDI LDK boot/neck knife. Came with lanyard, kydex sheath with lacing holes. Really small and really pointy.

Image

Both $100 CAN all in.


Im also waiting for this to be released from Spyderco. Spyderco Manix 2. Dead sexy!

The rig for the K-Bar is a neck loop for say in your shirt by the buttons, or under your external armor.

The sheath also lets you lace it into your boot on the outside of the tongue or off to the side.

And yes, I will be carrying it at work.

The "LDK" stands for "Last Ditch Knife".

This one comes with a kydex holster/sheath that is made to draw like a pistol and can be placed on your duty belt or where ever.

Im trying to source one out localy.

Those TDIs are nice. I find the design to be well suited to gross muscle techniques with the off hand - pretty much just swing the arm, and let the knife do it's thing.

Ghetto is keeping it tucked in your mouth, between your teeth and cheeks!
Don't get bitter, get BETTER

Whatever it is, it's not the end of the world. And if it IS the end of the world, there's no use complaining or feeling sorry for yourself, because everyone else is equally F***ED
