Re: Chief vs Police 4

I was looking at the getting the Chief, but because the P4 was discontinued...I just bought the P4. I already had the P3 which I adore. Gonna pick up the Chief at Christmas if something else hasn't sparked my interest.

Re: Manix v Manix XL v PM2

https://i.imgur.com/2vUFaLh.jpg As you can see I have all 3. (Plus the Manix LW's) The question is how are you planning on using the knife? The Manix 2 XL is a beast of a knife and feels extremely sturdy. But the downside is that it's extremely wide and takes up a lot of pocket room. If you put it ...

Naw, I love jimping. The more the merrier! I wish the Lil Native had jimping.

Jimping on the blade is cool, but on a handle made from G10 is just silly and a hot spot.

Suggestion on how to greatly improve the Manix 2

After finally owning 4 different versions of the Manix 2, I feel like I have a simple suggestion that would make the Manix 2 more attractive and better... :cool: Remove all the jimping from the liners The liner jimping some how makes the knife look more busy and less expensive. And it feels awefull!...

What about a Byrd version of the Spyderco Catcherman? Maybe give it a cool name like the Kingfisher? I think fishermen would love a cost effective option to go fishing with other then Rapala

Re: Lanskey sharpener

I used one for years. 1) Get the diamond stones 2) Make sure everything from the rods to the stones is 100% straight. I my first set of stones had a slight warp and I was getting terrible results. The system only works properly if everything is perfectly straight I find the Lansky is great for if yo...

Re: Taking apart knives - part 2

Hi Bloke, If the pinned knives go right together first time with no redo, they do have some economic advantage and can be sold less expensively. They also require less space. sal https://i.imgur.com/iPt6Olv.jpg?1 https://i.imgur.com/qEcaxcA.jpg Sal, I have to say I kinda really really dislike pinne...

Re: byrd lockbacks

I took my Cara Cara 2 (g10) apart and cleaned and oiled it, and it made a world of difference. I can't help think the oil used in China is cheap or the wrong kind.

Re: Road Trip Safety: What are your advices/recommendations?

It all depends on how you are traveling. I'm in Canada so it might be different 1) Walmarts will allow you to camp out at any of their parking lots overnight. 2) If you plan on sleeping in your car don't drink. If your keys are in your pocket you can still get charged with a DUI in some places. In f...

Re: Pm2 vs Manix 2

If you can find the back lock version of the M2 that was recently discontinued, it is superior to the standard Manix 2 and the PM2 in every way. Sadly I could have bought one the other day but it was half serrated so I hesitated and boom it was gone. I got to handle it though and its an extremely s...

Re: Byrd with high-end steel

Hi Cbr, Is that a Honda Cbr? One of the things for many to grasp is that not all "XYZ" is the same. This became very apparent when we introduced serrations to the industry. Most companies followed with their own "style of serrations. We spent a long time developing serrations for performance and so...

Re: 50 cents difference Raven 2 or Tenacious

The Raven is actually much better made then the Tenacious. Spyderco uses a separate factory to make the Raven, Alcyone, and Polestar and you will find the fit and finish to be better. Also the Raven is better steel with CTS-BD1 I wish more people could try out the Raven it's an awesome knife for the...
