I purchased a somewhat higher grade Swiss Army knife from what I believe to be the same people who make the Seki City knives.

Another Friction Folder with Blue Ti liners

Just finished yet another one of my AEB-L knives; it's simply too stunning to wait to post! It has a roughly 3" blade with Ti backspacer and Liners under some contoured peelply G-10 Liners. This was one of the first AEB-L Friction folders that I made, and this was before I really figured out how to engineer the pivot to maximize the amount of "wasted space" so it's a little bigger then it has...

Fake Spydercos: Initial Impressions

Here is an unboxing/initial impressions video on a couple fake Spydercos I bought off of AliExpress. I do not encourage you to buy fake products. I bought these out of curiosity to see for myself just how good the current fakes are and to report my findings. Long video due to my ramblings...
A more detailed analysis to come with lots of pics and possibly a final thoughts video, as well...

Friction Folder, Another Fixie, and Ti Diving Probe

Didn't get as much as I wanted to get done on my days off as I was planning, but still made a couple nice things none the less!

Carabiner wrap

I've had carabiners on my backpacks and messenger bags since high school so I don't lose my water bottle. The attachment has always been a simple affair, but I decided to try something new tonight.

I used "double ring hitching" from Geoffrey Budworth's Encyclopedia of Knots and Ropework, with a sort of constrictor knot (or maybe it is one) on the load-bearing end...
