I am not crazy about push knives in a boot, only because the handle profiles are usually too broad and thick. That said I like the HavocWorks TPD if you can find one and afford it or my distant second choice is a Browning Black Label Volatile, again if you can find it.

I know I would.




Once. That's when I found out it was a very poor quality "throwing" knife set.

Knock knock, let the devil in. Malevolent as I've ever been, head is spinnin'. This medicine's screamin', "L-l-l-let us in!"

@javyn,

If you can give me a good review on durability for your CJRB I think I'll buy this knife which just got listed as a poor mans substitute @~$50 for what I really want but can't afford.....



Edit: I hope the review is good, I pulled the trigger.

LOL, I'm quite fond of my Feldspar. CJRB is the budget subsidiary of Artisan Cutlery.

Only problem I had was lots of shavings/dust inside the handle lead to the action being a little gritty, and the blade was slightly misaligned. Took the scales off, cleaned up the inside, oiled the pivot, and aligned the blade as I put it back together and now it's wonderful.

I don't remember exactly what precision screwdriver bit I used to take it apart....IIRC it was T6, but could be wrong.
