I feel lucky and priviledged to be able to take part in the worldwide pass around of the Shirogorov F95NL
It's been traveling the word for over a year now and I'm stoked that it arrived safe in my home.

Hope it's ok to post here in english, as I don't know any russian language. Удивляюсь
I read these forums with Google translate and enjoy all the picture and info here a lot, so this is my attempt to contribute a little bit myself.

So...


Here's what I documented on day 1 in of the F95NL worldtour in the Netherlands
No serious action yet, just some admiring and comparisons.

First thoughts when I unpacked the knife:
- wow, it's bigger than I thought. (only Shiro I ever handled is my Neon)
- man I love the super beautiful Micarta / Ti combination.
- omg that's a lot of blade in a compact package.
- I can't believe this knife has traveled the world and was used seriously, it looks untouched!
- It's not mine, don't get emotionally attached, it's only here temporary

Took some quick 'glamour' shots to capture the excellent state it's in:





It rides a little high for my taste clipped to the pocked, but I prefer tossing it inside my pockets without clip anyway.




So now that's out of the way....
Next I was holding it against some of my favorite folders.

My Neon feels refined and delicate against the more brutal size, weight and loud click flipping it open of the F95NL.
Two very different breeds.








Most remarkable to me is that the F95NL is in a package comparable in size with the Spyderco PM2, (a knife many people own so you get and idea of the size).
But opened up, the blade it packs is similar to the size of the full size Military.
Sorry for the lousy focus of these pics






Feeling the urge to cut something up, I decide it's time to kill an apple
It didn't stand a chance against the crispy sharp Elmax.







 

Kitchen duty for the F95NL also on day 1

Chopping up vegies and meat


Sliced my tomatos thin enough? Love the Elmax edge.


Dinnertime

End of the day I shared a beer and some nuts with the knife.
We're getting along great

 



That's it for today... to be continued
