Re: Best Steel For Small Hand Saws? Toughness or Wear Resistance?

I saw those Japanese hand saws by Silky on DLTTrading, and ended up suggesting one of those as part of a gift for survival type stuff. They look sweet. In fact I’ll probably pick one up myself. Don’t know which would be best in hiking/survival type scenario (fine, medium, coarse tooth). I would say...

Re: Best Steel For Small Hand Saws? Toughness or Wear Resistance?

Of the main features for a good axe I don't feel that would be the best sign of a high performance axe nor is it available or affordable in a format that makes a quality axe first. Same with a saw. Geometry and other features are more important than adding steels with more exotic carbides and volum...

Re: Best Steel For Small Hand Saws? Toughness or Wear Resistance?

Axe head weight, head profile and handle are more important than steel. Match the axe style with the purpose. As for saws, I agree that good japanese brand like Silky is a win. I have some no name brand folding saw in SK-3 steel and it saws good. And like what else do you want from saw? :D I saw th...

Re: Best Steel For Small Hand Saws? Toughness or Wear Resistance?

Saws and axes (and machetes) are subject to different directional and impact stresses than knives. There's probably no great benefit to their being theoretically made in Cru-Wear or 3V. "Toughness" is on an altogether different level in the axe/saw context relative to knives and if I had to specula...

Best Steel For Small Hand Saws? Toughness or Wear Resistance?

Looking for a cool Fathers Day gift for a friend (wife reached out). She suggested an axe, so I wondered if there were hatchets made in awesome steels like CPM CRU-WEAR or CPM 3V (guessing that an axe with that kind of steel would be prohibitively expensive). THEN because I overthink everything, my ...

Re: Black S90V Delica with blue liners - KW exclusive

Thanks for the tip! Does the finish look different (less homogenous) at all after the Flitz treatment? I tried Flitz to remove fingerprints from my Rex 45 PM2, and the finish was noticeably and permanently altered, waaaaaay before the fingerprints started fading. (Fingerprints may not seem like a b...

I put in a pre-order at KnifeWorks 10 minutes ago. Now they’ve taken that option off the page.

Re: Shaman Cru-Wear Sprint Run release ?

My only experience with micarta scales is on an old Gerber folding pocket knife. The old white micarta is hard and smooth. This micarta looks much different. Looks gripper, but also porous.

Is that the case? Can I expect this micarta to be porous?

@bagsnatcher Hasn't really gotten started. I believe most of what was referenced above is the Factory Outlet stock. These just started shipping to dealers last Fri.
So the knife hasn’t started shipping yet, only the Factory Outlet stock?

I asked the same question a month or so ago and someone who appeared knowledgeable said late October or early November. They also mentioned that the release had been pushed back once already, FWIW.
Thanks. Just wondering if anyone knew why it’d been pushed back, or heard any new intel.

Re: On Short Deep Carry Clips

Registered just to weigh in on this. Love the forum, but I went through the same struggle with Lynch and mxg clips recently, and I felt compelled to share. I have both the Lynch and mxg clips and use them on my para 3s. The mxg short clip fits my hand on a para 3 perfectly. It's nice and short and ...

Re: On Short Deep Carry Clips

Does anyone own both MXG Gear and Casey Lynch short deep three hole carry clips on their knives? I really like the comfort of the short deep three hole clip from MXG Gear. Just wondering if the Lynch piece melts as easily into the palm. Thanks in advance I have multiples of both....including the la...

New guy here. I have both Lynch and MXG for a PM2 and Para 3. I bought the MXG first but after buying the Lynch that is what stayed on both knives.
Thanks so much for your valuable input!

Were both the Lynch and the MXG clips the three hole deep carry short clips?
