Re: Sharpies

I carry a sharpie with my in my EDC bag and I also carry one at work, both have been very useful! I generally have a Pilot G2 pen that I do most of my writing with though. I may carry a pen if I think I might need one, but my wife is usually with me and she carries pens and whatnot... That's what a ...

Anyone else’s brain trick them like this?

So I’ve recently gotten into watches... a little TOO into watches... and needless to say I’ve been looking at them a lot lately. I’ve also started wearing them, often staring at and admiring the one on my wrist. Anyways, I’ve noticed now that many times when I first look at a static picture of a wat...

Re: Lets talk about watch bands

I have found Barton Bands to have a great selection of colors and materials, and all their bands use their quick release spring bars so it’s really easy to swap.

Re: Compression Lock Military 2 Steel Poll

They don't need a poll to know a Compression Lock Military Salt in LC200N is a slam dunk. And again, and I don't see them doing a non-salt LC200N knife as most people at this point associate LC200N with Salt and they would likely have people complaining about rusty liners. If you are neglecting you...

Re: P'Kal vs. Yojimbo vs. Chinook

As Sal said, there are different styles and training each design compliments. I’d really sit down and think of what your preferred/most proficient mode of defense is and choose the knife that suits that. Read about how each knife was designed to be used. For instance, I subscribe to the concept of u...

Re: Compression Lock Military 2 Steel Poll

I selfishly voted for 4v just because i haven’t had a chance to try it. I think the best bets for making the highest number of buyers happy (not just us steel snobs) would be 20cv or s45vn. Edit: switched my vote to 20cv. I also feel like s45vn should be in the poll. Given that it is a new steel an...

Re: Compression Lock Military 2 Steel Poll

I said in the other thread that Cruwear or 20CV are what I’d love to see. Leaning towards 20CV. Both are good, “every day” use steels that aren’t particularly hard to care for and are good for the “general consumer”. They aren’t super hard to sharpen, are pretty corrosion resistant (obviously 20CV m...

Re: Military 2. What exactly is going on?

I'm open to steel suggestions for a regular production Millie 2. sal I don’t know what would be easiest to get and what would be the most realistic price wise, but I think that Cruwear or 20CV would be great choices. Both powdered steels, both American, both in vogue. I’m not sure how the timeline ...

Re: First of Many and What's Next?

Some general description of your needs and preferences would help. However if you are just looking for "essential Spyderco" knives, there are a few. I'm staying on the more budget side of things. To me any of the Manix Lightweight models are essential to try. Especially considering the two you said ...

I think that's already the Dragonfly.
DF has leaf shaped blade & backlock. That's rather a shrunk N5.
The Lil' Native is a shrunk N5.

Re: Fillet Knife? Steel Types?

http://i.imgur.com/DbGfs6K.jpg My parents have that exact knife on the top, they’ve had it (and the rest of the original kitchen set) for over 30 years and other than scratches and the edges of the handle being rounded off from use, they are like new. It would be cool if they brought that one back.

Re: Some what passable fakes. Weird condescending messages.

Blade: "CTS-XHP"
Photo label: "M390"
Specification listing: "9cr18Mov"
:rolleyes:
Reality: Some mystery "stainless steel"

I think its funny when people buy these clones knowing they are clones, but then expect that they are actually getting what the blade or listing says for blade steel.

How about a S90V/M390-CF version and a Cruwear-Micarta version?
That would be a good set to cover your bases! Though I'd personally rather see 20CV than M390 since they are almost identical but 20CV is an American steel. I think those would be good pairings though.

Re: Spyderco BM Proper Killer!

We can discuss a higher end Slipit. Maybe something like Carbon fiber, Micarta or? Does the steel make a difference? Hi Michael, I'm not interested in making a nail nick model. We can discuss one hand open, like the UK, or two hand open, like the Double Dents? sal I just mentioned the Double Dents!...
