        I was cleaning and reorganizing some drawers today and found that the back outside pocket of the CP is great for temporarily hanging your pocketknives.

          Very Spiderco-heavy your collection. Which do you like best? (nice background). One of my two Spydercos is in the second picture here: http://forums.tombihn.com/general-ba...html#post95791 :-) but the picture is lacking some Nordic.

              Yeah, Spyderco has always been my #1 for modern one hand opening knives. My favorite is the UK Pen Knife, the orange knife on the left. It is one of the best designed knives I've ever used and if I had to keep only one Spyderco the UKPK would be it.

              I see you have the Gayle Bradley in that picture. I only got to handle one briefly but it's a nice piece, quite a solid workhorse with the M4 steel.

              That is a two strand stopper knot. Links to few videos on how to tie it if you are interested.

                At the airport on spring break! My husband is carrying my French Blue S25, which is stuffed to the gills holding his stuff, snacks for three kids and toys/games/books for the 18-month-old. For those who are interested, he's 6'.

                    Is the blue that dark in real life? Looks more like a light blue/turquoise on the TB site.

                      No, French Blue is not as dark as it shows up in the picture of the Synapse 25. That's an effect of the exposure and lighting. However, the product page image colors generally tend to appear lighter than in real life. You could take a look at @taminca's Daylight Backpack Impressions/Photos thread. That thread, and the Daylight Backpack thread, carry the bulk of the pictures of the Daylight Backpack at the time it was released, and at that time most of the pictures were taken in French Blue. (The pictures in the second Daylight Backpack thread don't really start until @NWHikergal's posts, also in French Blue).

                      I also think the French Blue color shown in @Ilkyway's French Blue and Aubergine threads pretty accurate.

                          I don't know how I missed Ilkyway's fantastic photos back then - the French blue and aubergine look gorgeous together! Thank you for posting that link, @moriond.

                            I submit this photo more as an example of the S25 on a real live person out in the world, rather than as an example of what French Blue's true colour. In natural light, it is definitely not as dark as in this photo, which was taken with my phone at 5 a.m. under very high fluorescent lighting, and as you can see from the floor, in a not-especially-well-lit spot. IMHO many TB colours do look darker in real life than in the photos on the product pages, including French Blue. All due respect to Ilkyway's photography skills which are clearly far ahead of mine (not to mention her willingness to take and share so many photos!), but I think those photos are also a bit lighter than what I see in real life. Of course, colours vary from monitor to monitor, so maybe it's me.

                              Hi Tepuku and a warm welcome to the forums.

                              I have to admit your Gollum gave me a near heart-attac this morning. I was still in bed and looked at the newest posts on my phone (yes, that is, what I do) and there he was staring and laughing at me.
