Re: Sharpies

Nope... I carry a pen, pencil, milwaukee markzall (better than a sharpie), and a notepad at work. Outside of work no thanks. I take notes on my phone if I need to, and have my knives. 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... Th...

Re: What "Other" is in your pocket???

I've found that knife intriguing at that discounted price at KnifeWorks. What do you think of it? Honestly, it is amazing, especially for the price! 4 inches of m390, centered blade, very smooth out of the box, good edge bevel and it was sharp out of the box as well. Not spyderco sharp, but it woul...

Re: There's something missing here...

True that zt and Kershaw are owned by a Japanese company, but think of the number of people employed here in the US by them. It's the same argument I have with people in my trade, that yes Toyota, Honda, Nissan, Subaru are all Japanese brands, and the money goes back to Japan, but think of the amoun...

Re: Your "return ethics"?

I've only returned one knife so far... My smoky mountain knife works blackout Kershaw Bareknuckle in 20cv. Blade was warped. Awaiting the exchange but it is worth it. Thing was perfect aside from the warp. Great detent, and after a drop of kpl on the detent track super smooth closing action. It was ...

Re: NHL Season is here: 2019-2020

Go Predators!! I'm a Blackhawks fan too, since my dad was from Chicago. And a bruins fan because my mom is from Massachusetts. And a ducks fan because I was born in California. Haven't watched much hockey lately, I need to though. Used to love playing street hockey, and wanted to play ice hockey but...

Re: What models would you like to see with the side button compression lock like the Smock

Blades we love make a PM2 "Ultra" that is basically a left hand pm2 and add a button for the lock. It looks great. Probably pricey.

Re: Are Natural Sharpening Stones Totally Obsolete?

Arkansas stones still have a place. For modern high vanadium powder metal steels? Probably not, except for maybe polishing the bevel, but fine grit ceramic does that just fine. I'm pretty much all diamond/ceramic, but I do have an Arkansas stone on my smith's tri-hone. It has a coarse ceramic, mediu...

Re: Spydercos self-loosening pivots

I have the problem on spydercos, ZTs, Kershaws... Even captive pivots, which seem worse about it to me, for some reason. A little lube, blue loctite, and no problems.

Re: Which sharpmaker rods can you achieve shaving sharpness with?

I can get a knife shaving sharp with the diamond rods. Everything I've read or watched on sharpening says to get your edge shaving sharp with your coarsest stone, so I do! Everything after that is just to make the edge prettier lol. I usually at least get the bevel a little refined with the brown ro...

Re: The low grit sharpening thread

I tried going with a coarse bevel and polished micro... I didn't like it. I do like a polished bevel and coarser micro though. Grabs and cuts, but slides nicely through material. I am experimenting with not polishing my main bevel as much (brown rod finish) and it works well. So I pretty much stop w...

Very nice :) If you like that ZT95, you'll like the Manix 2 and vice versa, I think.
I have a Manix 2, and I love it dearly! :D

https://photos.smugmug.com/photos/i-6VBPG8C/0/31fb5961/X3/i-6VBPG8C-X3.jpg I just picked up a 0095bw myself! Went to st Nick's Knives in Florence and checked it, a 462cf, and a drunken out. The 462cf is on my radar, it was really nice! The drunken was pretty amazing, but I couldn't justify it. The ...

Re: So I checked out a Drunken today...

Hah I would feel the same way...especially after paying what it costs lol Yea... I mean, if I can find one for about 50% of new I might jump on it. So I think my limit is about 200 bucks, give or take a little. I use all my ZTs and my amalgam and BBS pm2... No worries about them. But that drunken.....

So I checked out a Drunken today...

And my goodness is it a beautiful and amazingly well made knife. Very nice to hold, so smooth opening. So light and thin! And realized I'll probably never own one for the simple fact I don't think I could ever bring myself to actually use it. It was just too pretty, and I would just take it out to f...
