Six months and no one has added a Kershaw to their pile???? That's just pathetic.

My granddaughter came up this weekend for a visit and I remembered I had not given a knife to her (how could I have missed that. Good God, the girl is 20 years old now) so we remedied that. I drug out my Kershaw storage folder and we perused a few. I thought she would go for a Scallion (her mother has one) but she felt more comfortable with the Leek. Went to eBay to browse the available Leeks and as luck would have it, this one in Teal caught her eye. The better luck was the auction ended in less than an hour. Set my snipe program and snagged it for a very decent price. To save on shipping costs, I just had it shipped directly to her.

I have a Chive on the way from Scott. Not my first but it will be my only one. Pictures when it gets here.

Thanks Scott. Lest we turn this into a mutual admiration society, I must say, so are you.

It appears that you do like them Cryo's a good bit.

Scott was kind enough to sell this Chive to me. It's my only one. I had a red one several years ago but sent it back to Amazon. I wish now I'd kept it. Oh, well. ::facepalm::

I unsuccessfully tried to scrub the Snap-On etch off the handle with Mothers. Now I wish I'd left it alone. ::doh::

This is starting out to be a wishful day. ::tired::

:lol: :lol: I tried the 0000 after the Mothers. The etch is just that, etched into the steel. What made it stand out was something black in the grooves of the etch. All the 4-0 did was scrub 'some' of the black out. It would take sandpaper to get rid of it completely. Oh, well. It's just a place holder and a fascinating little knife to play with (loves me some Speedsafe®). One of the things I like about it is that it's a framelock.

This thread has lain fallow for far too long. Picked up several Kershaw's since 2015. Here's one that came in today.
