I like the 700 so much more than the 800.
On the way I have a Gerber MP600. And in about a week, I'l have a new Pentagonlight on the way!
I also have a Topo Meridian and a Gerber Double-Take coming from my uncle. When I visited the Bass Pro shop he works at, I found them, and I wanted to buy them (I swore it would be my last big purchase until my Strad
). My uncle gets an employee discount of 10 percent, but he said if I didn't mind waiting a few days, his extra discount days started the day after I left, and he could get it for a lot less, and then ship it to me. So I'm waiting for them, but I get 25 instead of 10 percent off! Since he lives and works in Missouri, it was all American dollars, and the total price of the Topo and Gerber together was just shy of 100USD, but once you take off the 25 percent, it is about as much as a Topo without a discount, so it's like I'm buying the Topo and getting the Gerber for free!
The Topo is one of my favorite knives, and I liked the Gerber because I use both serrated and straight edge blades very often, but it is difficult to find them both in a single package without buying a multitool, so I will likely carry this when I can't carry a multitool, and when I expect to use both a serrated and non-serrated knife blade.
They also had a lady with a grinder that would sharpen any knife for 1 to 4 American dollars (depending on the size) and I got a couple of my knives sharpened (I am very bad at sharpening knives, I usually end up making them more dull). She also sharpened the double edge on my Powerlock (I got it double-ground originally, but it wasn't very sharp).
