    The Tourist has always been here. My computer crapped and I was gifted a new Dell. Yikes, computers have have changed a lot in 12 years. Mine now uses electricity, no more stoking the coal furnace to get my desk-top page!

    (And a special thanks to Cricket! For some reason my passwords would not work. He/She contacted your local Mafia and magically my password worked on the first entry.

    I've been out of the game for almost two weeks. What special segment of cutting tools would you like comments on?

    Knife sharpening systems. SOME work most suck and most are way over priced and complicated.

    Yikes, I could support a second mistress on the "systems" I've purchased over the years. I have found that pieces of one can be modified to work on another. Then again, I always save old, brass striker plates from doors. The can be bent, filed or cut into brackets to "marry" differing cutting tools.

    In the end, I learned what the togishi learned +800 years ago. Buy good stones, find clean water and treasure soft rags...

    I like to buy quality stuff but I don't go over board on them either. I have ESEE, Benchmade, Gerber, Spyderco, Kershaw and Ka-Bar. The Benchmade Barrage is my favorite by far, that is what I EDC. I don't baby it, it takes a beating, I use it as a multi tool and knife snobs would cringe seeing how I treat it. lol I also carry the Griptilian at work EDC, the Izula as a boot knife, the Ka-Bar Tanto in the truck and the ESEE-5 in my go bag. The rest sit in a box in the garage waiting to be next in line.

    My humble opinion

    ESEE Not familiar with them

    Benchmade best ones- but $225 and up most people want one, if it was free. They also have a lot of NON USA stuff with high prices, be careful

    Gerber only older ones; the newer ones are junk

    Spyderco way over rated/over priced

    Kershaw made in the USA are the only good ones

    Ka-Bar living off their old reputation

    I definitely agree on Ka-Bar, I bought one of their Dozier neck knives and the quality of the blade is terrible, looks nice and sharpens ok, but won't hold an edge worth a damn. It sucks because I love the design with the skeletonized handle and perfect IMHO size and weight. Now I will just use it as a template to try to make a better one. https://www.amazon.com/Ka-Bar-Dozier...r+dozier+knife
