Re: Looking for an EDC/slimmer wallet

Thus, here I am wondering what you fine folks use as a replacement for the traditional wallet, what it's made of, and why you picked it. “Thin” is a very important quality for me. I’m old-school, and like my holsters, belts, and wallet to be made of leather. The company that meets my needs is "Big ...

Left handed.

Right eye dominant.
Handguns, left handed.
Long guns, right handed.
Fight, either.

Re: Fellow reptile lovers??

Be sure to post pictures of the babies when they arrive. Do snake people concern themselves with inbreeding and the development of undesirable characteristics?

Re: Fellow reptile lovers??

Hey, Julia. You have some pretty pythons in your family. I only have dogs and chickens in the family. But I spend a lot of time in the outdoors, where I often run into snakes. Generally, I let them be. But sometimes when I'm with someone his isn't comfortable with snakes, I'll catch a snake and let ...

Well that was the better part of an hour spent falling down the rabbit hole of steel videos.

Re: Straight Razor from Spyderco

he shaved with a straight razor for decades. Your use of the past tense did not go unnoticed. I like my double-edged razor. The setup is a very nice Japanese handle, Russian blades, Italian soap, and silver-tip brush. Before I'd go electric, I'd sooner trade in my Spydercos on Pakistani switchblade...

Re: Sprints

But after seeing the newest reveal, I do feel like its getting a bit out of hand, maybe I'm wrong, I don't understand how things are getting "out of hand." Nobody is forcing anyone to buy anything. I've never purchased a Sprint, but there are two that caught my eye, so I'll probably buy them when t...

Re: Reveal 4 Live!

Not as cheap as I want, but not so expensive that I'll have to give up steak and good whiskey. In the past, what has been the time-frame between the Reveals and the availability of t...

Re: Reveal 4, What's your favorite release?

This is pretty easy for me. REX 45, for sure. But what flavor? There are two Sprints that might find their ways into my possession. Native 5 LW: It's a little smaller than my usual carry knives, and might be handy for those times when I want to go lighter than usual. Native Chief: Why on Earth would...

Re: Shot Show 2020 anticipation

I think that in an effort to be inclusive, Spyderco will reveal that it's now offering all of its Compression Lock knives in Left Handed versions.

Re: I Don't Get The "Spydie-Flick."

Maybe my hands are trashed from climbing, or maybe they're just too large; I'm not sure. Spydie Flick is the equivalent of a heel hook, a drop knee, a dyno to a greasy sloper, or resting while hanging from a fist jam: it's just plain cool. Once I saw someone DO a Spydie Flick, I couldn't rest until...

Re: Forum knife 2020 - model poll

Just curious, for all those who voted for the Shaman what steel/scale combo were y’all wanting? Carbon fiber is cool because my mountain bike is all carbon, so I tend to buy things that match. But the micarta has a totally old-school look. Between the two, I think my nod goes to the micarta. As for...

Re: Best Edge Performance Steel between these choices?

SUBJECTIVE ANECTOTAL OBSERVATION: Of those you've listed, the only one with which I have experience is Maxamet. At first, it was disappointing because of the way is was prone to chipping. Eventually I learned to deal with it. And I've now I've acquired the stones required to bring it to an impressiv...

Re: Forum knife 2020 - model poll

I'd say Shaman, but only if it's done in a left handed version. I'd be somewhat interested if it was done in boring steel, but all over it if it was don't in some kind of eclectic metal.

Re: Design details that are deal breakers

I agree with a lot of you. Recurves? Out. Liner/Frame locks? I'm over it. Emerson? Forget it. This is personal. Serrations? Maybe some day, but not right now. Right Handed? Equality for Left Handers! My current thoughts on Spyderco is that it must be a CBBL, Compression, or Bolt Action. I'm open mi...
