    Pocket Check
    Jim continues to carry his Buck Canoe that he picked in Episode 06 while Bob has several knives (again):

    Spyderco Military
    Case Mini Trapper
    Cold Steel Black Talon

    If you have only $30 I would say spend it on this knife. The action is incredible and the ergonomics are right on point.Click To Tweet
