It's black anodized titanium with a red aluminum insert. Sure the insert could have been a more exotic material, but I'm not sweating it.

There are very nice smallish spydercos that you can just throw in your pocket and not even notice them. But they aren't Keychain knives.

Haven't played with Sage 5 much yet but it seems quite a bit stiffer than my para 3, so not as good to fidget with. Thinking of switching to lil native for my EDC (since less restrictions on 2.5" blades in CA) but wish there was an FRN option.

the stiffness of the action is why i sold my sage 5. whats the point of a compression lock if i still have to throw a lot of wrist into it?

I thought the LW model was supposed to have better action with its bushing system.

Is there supposed to be a break in period on these compression locks? I really enjoy how the para 3 blade effortlessly glides back into the handle when squeezed.

mixed bag.

my para 3 (bentobox gray g10 and maxamet variety) had great action out of the box. my pm2 (micarta and cruwear) was a bit stiff and had a break in period.

I thought the sage 5 LW was supposed to not need a break in bc of the bushing pivot system. If it doesn't loosen up in a day or so of playing with it, id consider sending it back to blade HQ.

I bought a couple of expensive ones already just to see.

Most days I carry this:

https://www.milwaukeetool.com/Products/Hand-Tools/Cutting/Knives-and-Blades/48-22-1540

It’s 3in blade so legal (not that I care or if matters in my state), the blade is sort of crap but serated is nice for cutting vines and rope, but the real benefit is the screwdriver.

I looked it’s a paramilitary 2 with S30v (edit I mean s45vn ordered one that said s30v but came in s45vn not that I know what any of that means).

I don’t like how it or the benchmade opens. I like my thumb screws and I have gotten used to pushing the button and flicking the Milwaukee.

Why? it looks like a knife you can buy at a gas station for $9.99 plus tax.

I find it amazing that you have a million dollar house and have enough money to collect knives. How do you do it brother?

From one under earner to another?

I just can't stop hemorrhaging money.

the house i got lucky on. bought a fixer upper in 2013. Had a ton of equity when I sold it. Used all of that plus some extra cash to buy my current house for mid-700s with a $430k mortgage at like 2.7%. Under contract November 2020, so a bit before the market went absolutely bonkers. My all in mortgage payment is like $2,700/month.

Houses in my neighborhood that are slightly newer but the same size and with smaller yards sell for $1.2 - 1.3M. Zestimate for my house is $1.04M and this doesn't include another full bathroom we added.

The knife in the OP was a pre-order that I placed a year ago. With kids' activities and rising cost of everything, i'm not planning to spend any money on anything frivolous for the foreseeable future.

I hear you brother. It's insane out there. The kids are very expensive. Everytime I turn around someone's taking another $500 or $600 out of my pocket. Hoping to get monthly spending down below $10,000, but jesus fucking Christ, I don't know if that's feasible. $12,500/mo seems to be the safe budget.

Yeah i'm always amazed at our inability to save. When I try to do a monthly budget it seems like we should be saving at least $70k/year, but that never happens. When I write it all down, a budget of $8-10k/month should be plenty.

My wife was insisting we need to redo our kitchen. I had to go for a walk to calm down.

Dupa now that I've done sort of a dive into being a "knife guy" like you, but on a far lesser level, I'm curious. If you had to do it all over again, which knives would you recommend?

I am pretty sure that having a Spyderco Para 3 and the Benchmade 945 is all I would ever need in terms of "nice" knives.

It's the only knife I own that when i show it to people who aren't knifemos, their eyes light up.

It's the only knife that my wife noticed as "new" within a day of me getting it.

It is absolutely stunning IRL and has the best action of any knife in my collection.

1) materials: handle is black anodized (not coated) titanium, with a red anodized aluminum insert (aluminum isn't the most exotic material). Blade steel is s90v steel which is high end and highly regarded.

2) fit and finish: knife was built in the reate factory which is well known to produce the highest quality production knives. It's perfect. The insert is totally flush into the handle, all the pieces are perfectly engineered from the pivot, to blade centering, to the pocket clip.

3) Action/fidget factor: The flipping action is perfect. The right amount of pressure applied to the flipper tab has the blade flying out and clicking into place in a very satisfying way. The large slit in the blade provides another means of deployment (i.e. flicking). The close is perfect as well with it shutting in a controlled hydraulic like manner and then clicking firmly into place.

4) design: designed by the famous Brian Nadeau of Sharp by Design knives, the curves are beautiful on the handle and all well rounded, so it is very ergonomic. The blade shape and finishing is also very interesting. It has a cool tanto blade with a slight amount of belly with a compound hollow grind. Just very cool stuff and attention to detail.

So you're paying the price of an actual gun to get a knife? And it isn't even something like a real switchblade? Yes, I get that you live in NJ and the laws suck. But then maybe you should get a different hobby.
