2013 - A new hobby ... knives...

I told myself that for 2013, I need to get myself involved in a new hobby. Somehow knives caught my attention. So here's what I've got so far...

When I was in Hong Kong, I was looking around if they have any knives that I can bring it back to Malaysia, and I found the Victorinox multi-tools that I wanted ... and it's cheaper in HK compared to in Malaysia too. I bought 2 Victorinox. I've been carrying the smaller one around and used it a few times for everyday stuff... :)

As a birthday present to myself, I bought the Light My Fire knife and Heckler & Koch Instigator. I have not used both but planning on doing so when I go camping with some of the boys end of February.

First impressions on the Light My Fire - the grip on this knife is awesome... Just nice to hold and comfortable when striking the fire starter. The blade seems to be sharp and should not have any problems cutting meat or small branches.

 The other knife that I bought is the H&K Instigator. This knife is not really a camp knife but I do plan to bring it for outdoor trips. The sheath holds the knife pretty good.

There is one more knife that I'm looking at which is the Ka-Bar BK7 which will be my birthday present. oh yeah!!! ... now let's see how these babies will work out... 

and yeah... i will be looking at a few more other knives... maybe a Spyderco next... :)
