Re: Idea: Lanyard Tube Removal Tool

David, I don't think you're Shaman is missing a lanyard tube-- AFAIK they aren't in the design. My Shaman does not have one, nor my natives nor Native Chief. Maybe they've noticed people remove them anyway. If it saves even a little cost then I'm ok with it. I like not having an extra tube through ...

Re: Idea: Lanyard Tube Removal Tool

I am unsure why they need to be flared. On some knives they play a pretty big role in the construction of the knife. I removed one on an Ouroboros and Paul informed me that the back spacer could rotate out of the knife as a result (which I failed to noice). On the Manix 2 for example the lanyard tu...

Wow that looks good. I don't usually like coated knives, but that backlock and H tho! :spyder:

Holy smokes! :cool:

Presumably, he masked the lock interface?

Re: In praise of Mr. Ed Schempp

I haven't had a chance to handle the Bowie, but it intrigues me. A Bowie with a backlock is an interesting idea. I think the Crucarta treatment would totally rock, unlikely tho it is.

The ergos on the Efficient are great.

Re: Open Back Construction

I bet the true history of it would be hard to trace. There was probably some very old friction folder that might have had the handle carved out into an open design. It certainly got popular after people started deviating from lockbacks and slipjoints. There is a version of the sog twitch 2 that is ...

Re: Shaman Cru-Wear Sprint Run release ?

Have any of y'all --who have one of these-- oiled the micarta yet? If so, curious how much it darkens. Thanks. Micarta will clean back up to it's original shade nicely and easily in my experience with some mild dish soap and hot water. When clean and dry it looks like new even if really grungy... Y...

Re: Emphasis

Has anyone heard any rumors or news on the release of the Emphasis? No, I have not, and I've had my ear as close to the ground on this one, as anyone. I suspect there were issues of some sort. Possibly with some early pieces sent over for review. Or, Possibly. The turmoil over in Hong Kong is preve...

I would rather see a micarta handled LC variant with a satin blade. For me it would have a distinctly different 'use case.' :rolleyes:

Re: The low grit sharpening thread

First I gotta thank Sal for inventing the Sharpmaker! Benchstones and waterstones have their place too, but the ease of use with the SM is amazing- especially if like many of us you stay on top of it and keep things sharp. I gotta thank Vivi, Pelagic, BBB, Evil D, Gringo, Bearface and probably some ...
