Thought I'd give this a go. Sorry if it's been tried before but I quite like the version on the other side of the pond. Everyone gets a bit creative with their camera's... Plus it's a nice opportunity to see what's out there....:) SamLast Post By: Dr Gonzo Yesterday, 05:46 PMNightfly

I am intrigued to know how much you are prepared to pay for a knife you are really prepared to EDC. (Around the house doesn't count!!) In a way it is a measure of how much you are prepared to lose.

To that end... I give you...Last Post By: Kitman22 Yesterday, 03:59 PMCronos
