Re: Knives you rarely carry but hesitate to part with for non sentimental reasons?

More than I care to admit. On the bright side, I've helped do my part to keep honorable companies, (like Spyderco), and many custom makers in business. And I'm happy for that.

Re: Favorite "HARD USE" Blade Steel

I've been using a small 3V fixed blade from Ed Schott as my go-to utility knife around home and property for years. Just a great, rugged little beast.

Re: Smallest spyderco you are comfortable with?

I don't usually carry my smaller Spydercos but I could get by with the Urban K390 or Calypso Jr. ZDP-189.

My old Dragonfly is too small for me to be comfortable with despite it's being a classic.

Re: Sharpening maxamet with sharpmaker

I've touched up (and removed some edge issues on) Maxamet on the brown rods (and bench stone) but have not attempted reprofiling with ceramic.

CBN or diamond will be superior if and when you eventually need to do more serious sharpening or bevel reprofiling.

Police 4 / Military / Shaman all work well for me. Those are the biggest Spyderco knives I own.

Re: Sal, Can we get CPM 15v?

Standard Protocol is for industrial parts not knives. Tweaking the protocol can let us use the building blocks this steel offers but with more Stability than with the industrial heat treatment which is not made for thin knife cross sections. While 15v is very strong, I'm sure with lateral shock loa...

^^^^Why do you feel the need to piss all over the guy's thread? Move on if you don't care for it. At this point you're just proving yourself to be an ***.

Nobody here knows what the facts are. Either accept the OP at his word or move on. You've had more than your share of time on the soapbox.

FWIW, and it's conjecture only, but as a retired "fed" I'm less inclined to believe that a postal employee is responsible than that someone, a neighbor, a drive by wacko, "somebody" decided that it was your turn in the barrel. I say this not out of any allegiance to (quasi) governmental agencies but...

Re: a painful lesson relearned

I've had a couple of mishaps with USPS but by and large pretty good experience. (Any negative experience is frustrating, of course.) Still, just to give an example of a great experience: I was awaiting a custom knife by friend and custom knife maker Ken Erickson. Didn't look like it would arrive for...

Re: Any upcoming Millies? Sprintruns or Exclusive?

I'm a big fan of D2 and have many knives (custom and production) with it. But I don't see any advantage over, say, Cru-Wear.
(I don't know what the difference in cost to produce and market would be, but I doubt the difference in price to the end user would be significantly different.)

Re: Any upcoming Millies? Sprintruns or Exclusive?

I'd love to see a k390 military. Not as sure about Maxamet, but I'd probably buy that one just to check it out. I think the military would be cool in a really tough steel, like 3v, Sleipner, or 52100. I'm still hoping that the Italians convince Sal to sprint something in Sleipner. ;) Judging from S...

Re: Knife Vs. Pork Covered in Jeans

I keep picturing Elvis swingin' a Spydie: a chunk, a chunk of burnin' pork... Fred Perrin could certainly carve up a nice pork loin with a small La Griffe. With a small blade you're not going to be cutting through the material you're attacking as much as doing damage via numerous wounds. Think death...
