What was your most recent knife purchase?

hi ,
I ordered the Spyderco Manix 2 in CTS-BD1 with translucent blue scales. Not a fancy steel but a good daily user and easy to sharpen. I also picked up the CBN rods for the Sharpmaker.

What was your most recent knife purchase?

Please help.

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.

I'm sure many of us do buy knives now and then but our primary concern on this forum is making our own knives. I recently bought a Kershaw 1670 off eBay. Before that, my last knife purchase was probably more than 30 years ago.

You'll note that I removed the video from the end of your post. Please don't include commercial video in your posts again ....

Case 64** three blade (similar to "Congress" only smaller) back in 1970 or 71 (when they still made a decent hi-carb blade). Still have it and use it to whittle some. Rest I made/make myself.

20 years ago, it was a CRK tanto. lol. When you can make your own, better than factory, why buy? I still use that knife as a cut comparison control knife. For the record, it can only do 1/3 of what a good hand made knife can do.
