I love mine too, but I seem to have an issue with breaking tips off of kershaws. Every one I've ever had has had a broken tip at one time or another. I've even picked them up off the ground where people have thrown them away after breaking the tip. I usually just grind or hone a new tip, depending on how bad the damage is.
If you find anymore, Kershaw will replace it for nuthin. I just got a replacement for my Leek.
ColdSteel is by far my fav. I know care a Roach Belly. I normaly would care a Recon Scout but people at woek might look upon its 7" blade like its a weopan.
I live in a state where I can carry any lenght of blade
