...so it looks like you lot are it! :sad6:

Been enjoying my Frost's Clipper for ages now, but been hankering after something else... Always liked the Fallkniven knives, but I'm a tight fisted git :)

Well, an F1 deal came my way that I couldn't refuse, then the offer of a U2... What's a skinflint to do? Yes, I bought 'em both! :D

The F1 is everything that has been said here before - lovely blade, solid and after a few mins on the waterstone, flitz and a leather strop it's blindingly sharp. :lust:

But the U2 was a surprise! Small, light little folder - stunning powder steel blade. Waterstone, Flitz and stropping has made it razor like. I can tell that the U2 will spend more time being used than the F1 - woodland walks, pruning, whittling etc.. For me the two combined are everything I need right now. Well, apart from the SAK, the Leatherman, the lapplander, the... :rolleyes:

I now have one hairless arm and i'm running out of printer paper... :)

Oh, my usual trick of lurking around British Blades until someone sells something... Two different sellers, just both at the same time.

You must do a heck of a lot of lurking, I never spot anything for sale on BB.
