Seriously, congrats and enjoy. I look forward to the day I can move to a free state where the laws aren't so stupid. Probably the first thing I'd do is head to a reputable knife retailer and walk out with my first auto.

Yep, Combat Troodon or Dirac Delta here. As per the OP, it will, of course, require plenty of "break in." Big Grin

I shouldn't have opened this thread. Now I'm looking hard at the Kershaw Launch 6:

I bought a Launch 8 last year, drawn to the orange handle. The new Wharncliffe design looks interesting and that blade shape is very practical, though 3.5" is a little long.
