Re: Street Beat Discussion

Fred made it with a small kydex sheath for pocket carry while I was in Paris but I carry it as a neck knife primarily. I named it "Le Metro" in honor of the Parisian subway system. I don't remember if I ever showed this one to Laci. (I bought my first Perrin Griffe from Laci back in the 90's while I...

Re: Street Beat Discussion

This little "Subway Bowie" was a surprise Fred Perrin made for me while visiting him in Paris twenty years ago.

Figured you'd appreciate the pedigree and lineage...

Re: I almost missed out - K390 PM2

Yep. As I stated in one of the other threads about this knife and BBS...it was actually a couple bucks less (shipped) than the Maxamet PM2 released just a short while back. I thought that one justified the price...so, where's the beef? It's either worth the price or it isn't. I'd not pay that price ...

Re: Military 2. What exactly is going on?

It seems that no matter what Sal and company come up with, there will be lots of wailing and gnashing of teeth. I honestly don't feel a need for an updated military, (but welcome different steels and scales)...however, that said, though I'm a righty it would be nice to make it lefty friendly for our...

Re: Shaman Cru-Wear Sprint Run release ?

With Spyderco there are really no bad choices. Just some maybe less optimal, (whether in reality or perception), or less desirable on a personal preference basis. I don't sweat the ones that get away. Wait long enough and one will come up at a reasonable price in the secondary market...or something ...

Re: CPM M4 vs K390

Poor M4. Being treated like a jilted lover.

Well, I still like M4 and I'm not ashamed to say it in public!

(Even if I do like K390. But then, I never said I was monogamous.)

Re: Compression Lock Military 2 Steel Poll

@ugaarguy Yes, I remember that quote regarding the Military. I wasn't sure if that was what you were alluding to. My personal opinion, while not based upon military service but 20+ years of law enforcement, including SRT, is that it depends. I have numerous WWII era military issued pocketknives whic...

I don't think Spyderco would make this knife first in CruWear, either, but it's leading this popularity contest poll. People are voting for what they want, rather what's best for the intended end use.
And what is the intended end use?

Not to mention that many folks, (myself included), got along for decades in the wilds, climbing, backpacking, paddling, x-c skiing with lightweight folders and fixed blades just fine. Sometimes a bit of technique, know-how and care go a long way. Not everything is manhandling your way through a tas...
