Spyderco USN Endura 4 (C10PSGRWBK)

Here's a little description of the knife from the Spyderco on-line catalog. (Thanks to Spyderco forum-maven TazKristi for bringing it back.)

This knife was something a little out of the ordinary for me. I don't generally like combo edges, nor do I have much use for the Emerson Wave opener. But I really like Toxic Green and black finished blades. Those two features; combined with wanting to support the USN forums and this was a must buy for me. I can't get over the idea that Mr. Glesser went out of his way to ask the forum what they wanted in a knife and then actually produced it!

I've carried the knife for a little more than a month and have taken quite a shine to it. The Emerson Wave is a really nice feature and the combo edge was a change of pace for me.

CRKT K.I.S.S. (5510)

An Ed Halligan design here today; as produced by Columbia River Knife and Tool. I first encountered the K.I.S.S. several years ago while I was in High School, not sure how I picked it up but I do recall carrying it for several months. Even took it to the first semester of college with me. I recall my dormitory floor mates praising the effectiveness of the thick tanto tip on puncturing beer cans for shotgunning. Not that I would ever partake in those activities, just a guy who likes to lend a hand. ;)
